Foundations of Yoga for Mental Health – A 5 week Online Course

Strength. Calm. Resilience.

Foundations of Yoga for Mental Health will expand your practice, reveal your shadows, and open your heart.

This is where healing begins.

There’s more to yoga than asana.
True yoga is Transformation.

 

Do you want to uplevel your yoga practice? Cultivate wisdom to share with your students? Radiate authenticity in everything you do – on and off the mat?

This is the beginning, the first step of your journey to integrate your shadows, deepen your practice, and ignite your personal and professional development.

“Physical practice can be a gateway for self awareness, but many students crave practical tools for more sustainable change in their lives off the mat.”

— Ashley Turner

Yoga Psychology embraces the connection between the physical and emotional, the scientific and spiritual.

It is the path of wholeness and healing. In Foundations of Yoga for Mental Health, we explore the mental and emotional benefits of a holistic yoga practice — one that emphasizes body, mind and spirit.

Where Science Meets Soul.

As a student or a teacher, you are intimately familiar with the way yoga makes you feel. But you may not be fully aware of the meaning behind those feelings, or how to process emotional breakthroughs when they arise. Whenever you practice or teach, you invite transformation onto the mat with you. This is the art and science of yoga.

To understand what’s happening, harness that energy, and channel it into positive actions, you need a solid foundation of knowledge, insights and strategies. With these tools, you can catalyze the mental-emotional health benefits of your yoga practice and spark an awakening.

Foundations of Yoga for Mental Health helps yoga students and teachers, therapists, clinicians, coaches, and wellness professionals breakthrough on every level – physical, emotional and spiritual.

Here's what our students are saying...

"This program

has been a game-changer in so many aspects of my life – especially my marriage!

“I am here hosting my first ever destination retreat in Nicaragua! It has always been a dream of mine to host a yoga retreat abroad and now I am doing it! I want to thank Ashley Turner and her program for giving me the confidence and courage to make this happen.
This program has been a game-changer in so many aspects of my life – including my relationship with my husband and children. I am so grateful to you Ashley for helping me grow and tap into my power.”

Jacqueline Long | Toronto, ON

"This is so much more

than a teacher training! It is a life transformation time machine.

“Before Ashley’s training, I had done nearly seven years of therapy, journaling, practicing and teaching yoga. Each of those things helped me heal my PTSD, but none of them helped me integrate those experiences back into my life without judgment. Ashley’s outstanding program did. Every single important relationship in my life has improved since I started this training. You can call them. I will give you their numbers! My yoga teaching elevated to a whole new level as Ashley modeled how to teach from transmission and the curriculum of your own life.”

Kasey Dreier | Los Angeles, CA

"I went

from being “just a yoga teacher” to being the proud CEO and opening my studio...something I NEVER thought I'd do!

There has been such an incredible shift from the person I was to the professional I am now. Ashley has helped me spread my wings in a way that I never knew I could. And the program has more than paid for itself! THANK YOU!”

Tina Porter | Denver, CO

Turner

I’m a yoga teacher, licensed psychotherapist, healer, entrepreneur, mother, and life-long student on my own soul journey.

My work is founded on the truth that what we see in life is only the surface layer — external expressions, behaviors and habits that reflect who we are, what we think and how we feel. The more potent layer lies beneath the surface. That’s where the real work begins – integrating the unconscious.

It’s my mission and passion to spread the healing awareness of what a psychologically centered yoga practice can be. I believe that yoga, meditation and breathwork practices strengthen and fortify us beyond all measure.

100% Risk-Free Money Back Guarantee

I’m confident this program will help you build a profitable yoga and holistic health business, and earn back your investment 3-5x IF you do the work and participate fully. Which is why I’m offering a 100% Risk-Free Money Back Guarantee. Here’s how it works…

Sign up today, complete the first module and send us all your homework and if you’re not happy with what you’re learning, you can request a full refund within the first 7 days of the start date of the program. If you do this and find the material doesn’t support you in any way, I’ll gladly refund your investment in the program.

To be comfortable in the inherent groundlessness of life, you must become truly confident in yourself. You must know on a soul-level that, regardless of external energies and forces beyond your control, you are okay. This is true empowerment!

Confidence in yourself can feel like a lofty and elusive goal. You know that you need confidence in your abilities, in your intellect and in your instincts, but how do you get there?

In my years of study and practice, I have found that self-regulation is one of the most powerful tools. With it, you can end your cycle of trauma, imposter syndrome and limiting beliefs that hold you back. You can look deeply into your relationships and realize that they are each a mirror of the relationship you have with yourself. You can strive to understand the WHY of any situation you find yourself in, and this will help you return to your center and uproot the underlying causes of insecurity and fear. You can begin the journey of learning how to love unconditionally, and along the way, you become more fully conscious.

Above all else, I want you to remember that healing is non-linear. And that your ultimate goal is liberation, for yourself and for the sacred work of helping others to be free.  

I believe we are here to shine a light on our Shadows

and that by accepting and integrating them, we fuel our own transformation. The ultimate success for each of us is freedom from the beliefs and behaviors that are holding us back. It is my soul’s purpose and my own healing journey to help you on your path.

with love, Ashley
