The 6 Pillars of
Passion + Practice

Every month, you receive
new lectures, recordings, and content
within each pillar.

Teacher’s Tune-Up

Whether you are a teacher or aspire to be one, understanding the key skills, knowledge, and techniques of the most exemplary yoga teachers allows you to unlock yoga’s true gifts and create success within your spiritual practice.

Beyond the Mat

You know yoga is bigger than asana. While there are more than enough resources out there on how to do triangle pose, we focus on the alignment of the spirit and soul.

Mantras + Meditation

The oldest practices of yoga are not asana and sun salutations, but mantras and meditation. This pillar brings you different methods of meditation that work for the modern day practitioner, and mantras that provide relevance and power for spiritual transformation.

Stepping Into Spiritual Leadership

We are being called into our post not just as teachers, but as spiritual leaders. This pillar brings your higher education on the essential role of a spiritual leader, and elevates the yoga teacher to this post with necessary training and support.

Modern Mystic Musings

Yoga itself is wonderful, but incomplete as a total transformational tool. This pillar brings you higher education on modern mysticism so you complete the puzzle of transformations with a variety of tools and skills that unlock your greatest potential.

Myth of the Month

As teachers, myth is a tool to teach students how to look past their belief systems and realize wholeness. This pillar brings you higher education on the mythology of yoga, and each month you receive a new myth to live by.

This membership isn’t just some loosely “organized” social media group. In HEY you get access to real mentorship from Alanna Kaivalya and her team of bona fide yoga teacher mentors. Ask your questions, share your stories, and get the advice you need to excel.

HEY Membership


Sorry to say, but most yoga teachers find little to no support from fellow teachers working in the same studio, sometimes competing for more class slots. The inclusive, supportive HEY community exists to fill that gap, to help every yogi elevate their careers.

“I am extremely grateful for The Kaivalya Yoga Method® Teacher Training!  I am learning so much and love the flexibility of doing it at my own time and pace! The feedback I get with the assignments and submitting videos is excellent, it even makes me forget it’s all done online. There is a lot of interaction, motivation and the mentors are fast at responding to any of my questions.

I highly recommend this course!! I have even heard friends who completed their training elsewhere say they did not cover as much detail as we are.  What started off, for me, as just a way to expand my knowledge in Yoga for my personal growth turned into a passion for helping others and was the foundation to furthering my holistic training and start my own sacred business!!”

Melissa De Los Santos

She goes above and beyond to make certain you have everything you need

“Alanna’s courses are chock full of content. She goes above and beyond to make certain you have everything you need. Questions? She’s available. Suggestions? She’s open. Requests? She’ll grant if able. I’ve signed up for 4 of her courses and I’m extremely happy with the format, content, and the information. Really, you can’t go wrong! And the best thing: I always have access to the courses so I can go back and refresh as needed. Thank you, Alanna, for making these courses affordable!

“When I decided to pursue my yoga teaching certification, I researched countless teachers in search of one that was affordable, convenient, and most importantly, offered a comprehensive and engaging curriculum. What set the Kaivalya Yoga Method® online training apart from the rest was its innovative use of multimedia channels to provide knowledge and support remotely without compromising the integrity of the mentor/student relationship that forms during in-person trainings. This training has not only given me valuable insight into how to safely and effectively teach yoga, but also into improving my quality of life by applying yogic philosophies in everything I do.”

Kayla M.


“As a Movement Specialist with a successful private business and long list of pre-existing credentials (including yin yoga) I wanted to add a yoga certification.

I am a serial education geek, but I carefully choose my teachers: I’m looking to learn from someone who I truly believe can enhance my own mind and body approach, in order to make me a better human and a better practitioner.

I thusly found myself, as I often do, researching options. I wanted to study from a best-in-class teacher, but I also didn’t want to close my business for a month.

Alanna’s reputation, plus the “practical” benefits of online learning won me over.

It is so much more than any video or pamphlet implies. We have honest access to the mentors and to Alanna (when they say that, they mean that), and the course structure demands legitimate accountability for learning the material in a way that doesn’t even exist in most “real life” courses. The course structure means that you can’t just check the boxes and graduate – you have to do the work and you get actual feedback along the way.

It’s an honest and first-in-class course. Credential? Check. But you are going to grow and learn and be challenged along the way. Just what I signed up for!”

Janis Isaman

As I learn, I pass the wisdom of the stories and the practices to my students.

“Thank you for making it available and accessible to all. As I learn, I pass the wisdom of the stories and the practices to my students. I am enjoying the deep and satisfying sips…drinking it all in.”

Can I cancel at anytime?
Yes! Subscriptions may be canceled at any time prior to your next billing cycle. Simply cancel before your next billing cycle if you no longer wish to be a member. No refunds are available for any HigherEducation.Yoga subscriptions (either monthly or annual). Annual subscriptions provide yearly access, and cannot be pro-rated or refunded at any time.
How do I upgrade to an Annual plan?

Patience, 🦗, patience! Once you sign up for the monthly plan you’ll instantly unlock a special upgrade offer to save big $$$ on an annual plan.

I don’t use Facebook, will I still get something out of the HigherEducation.Yoga membership?
The community within the HigherEducation.Yoga Facebook group is phenomenal, and we sure would love to connect with you there. However, we understand there are many reasons not to be on Facebook, and there are still many ways to enjoy your membership! Even without Facebook, you can access all the HigherEducation.Yoga content, and participate in the live lectures and trainings. It will just be important for you to check your email for these details! (Emails are sent monthly with call schedule and content information)
I’m not a teacher, is the HigherEducation.Yoga membership still a good fit for me?
Absolutely! In fact, we know how difficult it is to attain more education about yoga without attending a teacher training! It seems as if the greater body of wisdom is reserved for teacher training programs…and that is not the case with HigherEducation.Yoga. While we do have many teachers in the membership, we welcome all levels of practitioners with an interest in deepening their studies and taking their yoga beyond the mat.
I’ve been teaching a long time. Will I still learn something in the HigherEducation.Yoga membership?
Without a doubt. One of the reasons I created this membership is because I hear over and over from teachers who wish they had a continuing way to stay connected and inspired long after teacher training ends. I also hear from teachers who graduate from trainings and wonder, “What’s next?” or “Was that it?” The HigherEducation.Yoga membership serves to scratch that itch, elevate your expertise, and provide you with a supportive community that inspires and activates your passion for yoga…while also encouraging you to step into your role as a spiritual leader and conscious business practitioner.
How much stuff do we get every month?
Each month is a little different, but you receive access to about 5-10 hours of recorded video, plus another 10-20 pages of written content, as well as workbooks, worksheets, pdfs, and guidebooks designed to give you new tools to learn and apply immediately every day. Every month features a giveaway – where Alanna & team choose one lucky member to receive a high-value prize – perhaps a full course for free, a Gift Certificate, an invitation to a free one-on-one session with Alanna – each month is different! Also, as part of your membership benefits, every month you receive exclusive offers for discounts, free stuff, insider access, and beta-testing for new material within the Spiritual Leadership Institute.
I already belong to another yoga membership. How is this different?
While most other memberships focus solely on asana…turn on the class, go through the sequence, and you’re done. You will not find that in the HigherEducation.Yoga membership…we serve a different niche and a higher calling within yoga. One of Alanna’s core missions is to raise the bar on what it means to be a yoga practitioner, and raise the standard of what it means to be a yoga teacher. She has over 1000 hours of higher education across two dozen courses to support that vision. The HigherEducation.Yoga membership is the first time she is providing that same extraordinary caliber of yoga scholarship in an affordable monthly format to her community of people.

Every month, you find lectures, lessons, and practical tools that help you embody yoga and embrace your identity as a yogi every day. This goes beyond just learning alignment in triangle pose. This is learning how to align your soul with your highest purpose through yoga and spiritual leadership.

How do I access the membership content?
All of Alanna’s courses and memberships are hosted on an intuitive, easy-to-use learning platform that allows you to access the content from any device with a steady internet connection. Enjoy watching lectures at home on your laptop, or on the go on your tablet or smartphone. Get your higher education for yoga…anywhere!

Let’s go beyond just the basics and raise the bar we set for ourselves as yogis.

Explore the potential of what it means to be a spiritual leader and modern mystic in today’s demanding world.
