    Course Structure

    Each module will guide you through a series of lecture-style lessons, guided meditations, yoga and other movement practices, nature-based ritual practices to incorporate into your life, and more!


    You'll begin by getting organized, exploring and familiarizing yourself with the Yoga Girl School and course platform, and reviewing various orientation resources and materials so that you can feel ready and prepared for each of the upcoming modules.


    In this module, you will be dreaming, designing, and planning your metaphorical garden (your life!) while exploring the various lessons available. You will learn about intention-setting, intentional living, creating sacred space, honoring and respecting land and culture, and you will take your first steps in getting to know some plant life.


    It’s time to get your hands dirty as you begin to dig! Here is where you will be digging deep into your past, turning the earth, and removing any obstacles in the way of your path forward. Learn how to look within yourself and consciously release buried emotions that may be keeping you feeling stuck or numb, learn the basics of foraging, and explore how to lean on nature and plant-life for support when faced with challenges.


    Time to plant seeds! The magnificent things that you want out of life will come from daring to try - but you can’t forget that you need a secure container to dare from. As you continue building a strong foundation and planting your seeds, this module will invite you to lean into trust and patience as you wait for full blossoming to occur.

    Explore your fears, step out of your comfort zone, and learn how to live life from a courageous place so that you may access the infinite potential you carry within. You will continue connecting with your favorite plant friends, practicing emotional release, learning how to move freely in your body through ecstatic dance, and more!


    Now, we sprout! Watch as your seeds begin to turn into tiny seedlings, but be mindful of how fragile and vulnerable you may be here. Watering and nourishing your garden is super important, so this module is centered around self-care, increasing your sense of self-worth, and using Mother Nature to help bring you there.

    During this module, you will learn about tea and how to invite its ancient wisdom into your life as plant medicine for your entire being. You will also learn how to communicate and get to know your inner child, how to adorn and treat yourself in ways that you truly love, and how to rest and tend to your needs with nurturing attention when it feels impossible to slow down.


    It’s time to delineate from the crowd, set boundaries, and grow strong. This module is all about following your gut and standing in your POWER as you learn to honor your core values, trust in your strength, and feel empowered to say “NO” where needed. During this module, you will learn how to connect with and trust your intuition, how to set firm (but fair) boundaries for others so that your wellbeing doesn’t become an afterthought, and how to unlock your deep primal power through movement as you begin to understand your limits and access continued growth.


    Your garden has grown strong and steady, and your hard work is paying off. It’s time to harvest! Enjoy the true pleasure of watching your flowers blossom. Treat yourself, indulge in every possible way, and discover what truly makes your heart sing. This module is all about receiving pleasure, appreciating your own uniqueness, and embracing JOY!

    You will have delightful opportunities to tap into your creativity, pleasure, and divine nature as you allow yourself to melt and relax with the help of some plant friends and intuitive movement practices.


    Every day, we continue growing - and every day, we are starting over. During the final module, you will embrace the cyclical nature of life and make the mundane special and sacred through commitment, prayer, surrender, and devotion.

    In this module, you will take the work and practices from the past modules, integrate them, and turn them into real-life rituals that can be sustained for the long term. You will also continue your nature-based practices as you learn how to commit to living a sacred life, and deepen your connection with the planet, your community, and your sense of true purpose.
