“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! While I have access to the courses, I can always go back and refresh as needed. Thank you, Alanna, for making these courses affordable!”

– Cindy H.


At the end of this course you are certified in the therapeutic applications of the chakras. This not only allows you the power and knowledge to heal your own psychological, emotional, and energetic blockages, but to help others do the same. Using the tools of yoga psychology, you learn to identify stuck patterns of negativity, and free your body, mind, and soul of them in order to live a vibrant, happy life.

*Indicates Professional Certification Course


Based on the beloved book, Myths of the Asanas, this course takes you through 31 myths and their applications to your daily life. If you are a yoga teacher, this course shows you how to engage and inspire students with well-themed classes based on yogic myth. As a yogi, this course shows you the power of yogic mythology and its ability to give you insight into your own life’s journey.


Based on Alanna’s latest book, this course gives you the tools and techniques to build a transformational personal practice that strengthens the connective tissue between you and spirit. Through personal rituals, meditation, light asana, and an understanding of the power of yoga, you learn what it means to take your yoga beyond the mat and fundamentally shift your perception to understand that yoga does not make your life better, it makes you better at your life.


Unlike typical boot-camps, this four-week program revolutionizes your life through a commitment to consistent daily yoga practice with measurable results. Gage your transformation by seeing your progress and development on three levels: mind, body, and spirit. This course gives you what you need to recharge your body, re-engage your mind, and revitalize your spirit.


If you have ever wanted answers to life’s biggest questions, this course shows you exactly how to get them. Through a profound, yet simple practice, Alanna gives you the tools to slip into the flow state (the most highly productive and creative state available) in order to connect with your highest wisdom. Through this connection, you get the answers to all your inquiries and ensure you’re walking on the right path in life.


Stop wondering how the stars effect you and start learning how to harness their power! When we understand astrology, and how it works on us, we clearly see where we are shining in life…and where we need a boost. Identify your big three: the sun, moon and rising signs in this course, and learn what kind of star stuff you are made of…and how to make it work for you!

With over 150 hours of training, continuing education, and a professional certification course included…there is plenty of material (valued at over $1,700) within this members-only area to launch your spiritual practice and spiritual career.

All of these courses come with Alanna Kaivalya’s consistent promise: to give you everything you need for your spiritual journey.

In each of these courses, she leaves nothing out and over-delivers on material, resources, video content, workbooks, and feedback.

“What’s not to like when you have all you need within arms reach. Great material, always being updated. Communication is 100% with your teacher and fellow students. Positive energy and support to grow in this journey. I love to take the courses and being able to go back and refresh my knowledge…Hop on the train and let’s go for the ride!!!!!!

– Teresita C.

I’m Alanna Kaivalya.

Often referred to as the Yoga Doctor, I help yoga teachers embody their knowledge, up-level their skills and create more impact in the world. I give you clear pathways to earning a living with your spiritual practice and help others with your gift.

I know how difficult it is to set yourself apart and thrive as a yoga instructor, so I want to teach you to be more than that…to be a spiritual advisor, healer, and master of the stars. As a #modernmystic, we are the torchbearers of spirituality for modern people; we are the guides that provide our students access to yoga’s enduring power as a healing and enlightening tool.

On this principle I founded The Kaivalya Yoga Method, a fresh take on yoga emphasizing the individual path while honoring tradition. Teaching students since 2001, teachers since 2003, I’ve written and developed teacher trainings worldwide for top studios and independently. In 2015, I debuted a comprehensive 500 hr online teacher training with YogaDownload.

I hold a Ph.D. in Mythological Studies with an Emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, have authored numerous articles and three books: Myths of the Asanas, an accessible practitioner’s guide to stories behind beloved poses; Sacred Sound, a yoga “hymnal,” illustrating the role of chant and mantra in modern practice. My third book, Yoga Beyond the Mat, is a guidebook showing practitioners how to make yoga their spiritual practice. I live in New York City with Roxy the Wonderdog.
