Yoga Detour Presents:


Get the inside scoop from EACH member of the Yoga Detour Team


Innovation. Systemization. Money. Marketing. Educational Strategy.

You know how to teach yoga.

You’re actually really friggin good at it.

You’ve got all kinds of ideas when it comes to what you can teach. It’s like you were born dreaming up class plans, workshop themes and teacher training modules.


You’ve got so much good stuff to offer. Yet, you’re struggling BIG time with translating those great ideas into actual revenue.



Because you signed up to become a yoga teacher - not a business owner. Yoga teachers know how to lead classes that guide people through movements that make their bodies feel better. Business owners know how to create and support revenue-generating opportunities while serving their customers.


Running a business requires a very different skill set than teaching a yoga class.


Up until now, that may not have been a problem… until Covid-19 happened.

Your studio closed. The world went online. You had to figure out which mic to buy, which platform to use for streaming classes. You saw other teachers offering their classes for free, or by donation, and wondered if you should be doing the same.


All of a sudden everything became a frantic reaction as opposed to a strategic response. And while that urgency might serve us well in the short-term, it’s not sustainable.


So we got together and created the perfect resource for you. A resource to get you out of your head and into the minds of those who have been through all of this before.

What People Are Saying

Here's what people are saying about Doors Open:

Not only has the information been helpful for us as a relatively new business in the movement/exercise industry, but on a personal level, I truly appreciate your candidness regarding the trials and tribulations of sharing yourself and your voice so openly.


I am sooooo loving it.

Because I’m having a break from teaching during Covid, 
I thought this would be interesting (always!) but perhaps not useful or relevant right now.




Yoga Detour’s success is a reflection of a whole team of expertise.

A team that we want to share with you.

Cecily Milne

The One With the Ideas

I’m the innovator, the one lying awake at night thinking about the next course, the next blog post, the next Instagram post.


I’m the one always wondering what else is possible.

Jenn Cardoso

The One With the Action Plan

I’m the organizer, the one happy to get up at 5am to answer emails and figure out how to build systems to support our plans.

I am the structure behind Yoga Detour. 

I get in front of the chaos before it strikes.

Penny Pong

The One With the Calculator

I’m in charge of the books, the one who asks “How does Yoga Detour benefit financially?” when the team comes to me with an idea.


I take care of the bottom line so they don’t have to.

Kassidy Crawford

The One With the Megaphone

I’m the one who gets the word out there. I live and breathe digital marketing. I ensure Yoga Detour blogs, social media content  and general messaging gets in front of the right people.


I'm the sounding board, cheerleader and sometimes...devil’s advocate.

Michelle Sengara

The One With the PhD

I’m the one who gets Cecily dopamine-high on chocolate almonds whenever it’s time to pull information out of her brain for a new course curriculum.

I leverage my expertise in educational design to ensure that every workshop and online course presents the Yoga Detour method in a way that the rest of the world will understand, appreciate and be inspired by.

Avoid the Roadblocks. 

Take the Detour.
