Within each of us lies a guru, a wise one who knows the truth behind each of our thoughts, words, and actions, an ancient soul that sees through to the essence of all things and knows all there is to be known.

The Kula Path is designed to help you reach your potential by providing you with tools and experiential training to deepen your skill set as a facilitation and spiritual leader.  Whether you plan to host retreats, transformational programs of your own or have the intention to lead yoga teacher trainings, this path supports your journey as you step into the role of a conscious facilitator.

We are dedicated to supporting our Kulitas expand and grow to the best of their abilities within our family. Giving you the tools and language you need to share the spiritual practice of yoga and empowering you to trust in the channel of truth you carry.


The process of the Kula Path is to help evolve participants’ natural leadership and space-holding skills into a holistic awareness of the needs of their particular class or workshop, developing them into high-level, conscious Facilitators. You will be encouraged along every step of the Kula Path to embody your own power, share your light and allow your magnificent gifts to emerge.

With the experience and skills gained along the Kula Path, we hope to empower you to create classes, workshops and retreats that inspire your passion and purpose.

Kula Collective Facilitation Intensive

Honing our skills as facilitators

The Kula Collective Facilitation Intensive is designed to open participants to the nuances of group facilitation, including pedagogy, mediation, problem solving, creative workshops and energetic space-holding.  The purpose of this training is to help evolve participants’ natural teaching and space-holding skills into a holistic awareness of the needs of their particular class or workshop, developing them into high-level, conscious Facilitators. The Facilitation Intensive uses the facilitation of a YTT or yoga workshop as an example, offering skills and tools applicable to facilitating in a variety of contexts.

 kula path apprenticeship

Apprenticeship 1

Work & Service + Observation

This is an opportunity to learn through experience, stepping into a role alongside our passionate and talented Facilitator team. Typically, the first apprenticeship will be a watching and learning mostly as a ‘shadow’ role. The roles that the apprentice takes on within the first apprenticeship can vary depending on the Facilitation Team and your current experience. The APP1 apprentice is encouraged to participate in sharing the Kula Basic Flow and other classes that highlight their specialties and passion. For the first training, APP1’s are asked to be present during the entirety of an RYT200 training, including Facilitator meetings. We will send the 200hr manual in pdf form, and APP1’s will arrive prepared with pre-readings and familiarity with the curriculum that the Lead Facilitator requires. During the training, we invite you to share your insight wherever possible, and to commit to maintaining the energetic space at the highest vibration possible. The goal of the first apprenticeship is to be in a “mentorship role” and a liason between the students and the facilitation team. First apprentices are only asked to cover their Room & Board for the duration of the training.

In the first apprenticeship, we expect you to:

  • be fully present one day before the training start date and one day after the end date

  • develop healthy relationships with students during the training

  • create functional space + hold safe space

  • arrive familiar with the curriculum material and the Kula Flow

  • be comfortable working in the background and anticipating needs

This will look like:

  • assisting the facilitators when needed

  • being fully present for all classes, morning sessions and evening satsangs as determined by the lead facilitation team

  • engaging in student one-on-one check-ins as determined by the lead facilitation team

After the training we ask that you:

  • complete a self-evaluation form and share it along with any feedback with the lead facilitation team

  • assist in collecting students’ personal evaluations

  • be present for post-training feedback + evaluation session with facilitators

 
 kula path apprenticeship 2

Apprenticeship 2

Knowledge & Wisdom + Active Participation

Upon the completion of the first apprenticeship, the apprentice may be invited to assist in a second offering.

Upon completing Apprenticeship 2, you may be invited to Co Facilitate for a Kula Collective Yoga Teacher Training.
