Yoga teachers are deeply affected by this pandemic with yoga studios closures. On the flip side, yoga students are now bereft of a primary source of comfort and camaraderie during this crisis…which is so needed. Yoga teachers need to step up into their roles as spiritual leaders and support their communities through this crisis. Alanna discusses ways to maintain spiritual and emotional wellbeing while continuing to responsibly connect to your community, even while practicing social distancing.

Money is often a dirty word in the yoga and spiritual communities, and the idea that we should make money as spiritual entrepreneurs is often ridiculed, shunned, and shamed. This is an outdated way of thinking, and that belief system keeps us small and impoverished. Listen to Alanna share her insights of two decades of wading through this particular challenge, and coming out the other side with a multi-six figure business. She offers specific tips and tricks to elevate your spiritual entrepreneurship and embrace your inherent value.

You've heard Alanna talk about this concept in previous podcasts: Spiritual Leadership. Hear her talk about why this is such a critical role to be filled in our modern day culture by mystics such as yourself. Learn the history of what lead us here...to this gaping god-sized hole in our collective psyches...and how as spiritual leaders, we assist our students, clients, and community in navigating this treacherous landscape. Learn the pitfalls of not addressing this void, and the best ways to step up into your role as a spiritual leader. You are being called to do this...the time is now!


Traditionally, at the beginning of any year, we look for ways to optimize our lives in the coming months. Mystics of old have long had methods of divination to assist in positive planning, and looking forward to create opportunities. This is not fortune telling! Rather, it is a way to commune with the subtler aspects of the psyche to bring forth what is already within us. This allows us to make the best choices for ourselves and take advantage of the energies at hand. For us as modern mystics, one of the great tools of divination is the tarot deck. In this podcast, Alanna introduces you to the concept of modern divination, and gives a brief overview of the tarot deck and how you can add it to your practice of spiritual leadership.

December is our time for introspection and inquiry into the darkest parts of ourselves...and it's perfect timing because the Winter Solstice is upon us! The winter solstice on December 21st has long been celebrated by ancient people (and mystics!) as an important time both spiritually and psychologically.

Many teachers are never taught specifically how to develop a confident presence with the voice and use high-level communication skills to present not just movements…but meaning. These are skills we must learn, just like anything else in our practice. Most of us need additional work on our speaking skills.

If this is something we’ve never examined, then we have a tremendous amount to gain by taking a look at how we use our words to deliver the teachings that come from our heart.

In this podcast. Alanna teaches her most powerful and important speaking and cueing techniques that elevate you from good to great as a yoga instructor, and help you establish the kind of expertise necessary to differentiate yourself from the crowd.

Guided Gratitude Meditation!

At this time of division–whether it be the division between us personally, politically, globally, or socially–how do we begin to back out of separation and into connection? How do we let go of our judgments of others, or an us vs. them attitude, or forgive those who have wronged us?

We begin with gratitude. Gratitude alleviates fear. It dissolves painful emotion. It evolves negative thought. It reverses false belief systems. Gratitude is a miracle worker, and you can let it work for you.

This special edition of the Upward Facing Career Podcast features a guided gratitude meditation to elevate our hearts and souls and remind us of what is most important in life...each other.

Did you know that the chakras and astrology go together like peanut butter and jelly?

It turns out that each of our sacred energy centers (chakras) is ruled by a corresponding planet in the astrological system.

This podcast will go through each chakra and the associated planet and illuminate the *true* meaning of hatha yoga...the joining of the sun and the moon!

Listen for deeper insight into the chakras, astrology, yoga psychology, and how to achieve a greater level of health and wellbeing for yourself and your clients.

We hear the term "alchemy" a lot these days, but what is it really?

The alchemical traditions go back hundreds of years, but they all represented one true aim: to reach the pinnacle of consciousness known as the alchemical opus. Turning lead into gold is the metaphor for transforming our darkened consciousness into enlightenment. Yogis have been endeavoring to do this for millennia!

As it turns out, alchemy is simply a Western form of yoga, one that holds deep mystery and true promise for the modern day spiritual leader.

In this podcast, Alanna reveals the fundamental principles of alchemy, covers its vast history, and provides you with ways to incorporate its practice into your teachings.

We are here to transform our students and ourselves. But, how do we do that?

If you've ever heard of Joseph Campbell, then you know the journey of the hero is a time-honored process by which the hero must pass through certain stages to reach success.

As yogis (and as human beings!), we must also pass through these stages to elevate our psyche and soul. Understanding the psychological journey of this transformative process is key to cultivating the resilience to go through it...start to finish.

This podcast reveals the stages of the journey of the hero, and it's importance in our lives as Modern Mystics and spiritual leaders.

Many of us equate the term "vinyasa" to a flowing series of yoga postures. Is that all it is?

In this podcast, Alanna busts through the misconception that vinyasa just means "flow" and talks about its application to our life and practice as yoga teachers. Modern psychology aids this discussion with its concept of flow state – the most productive and blissful mindstate that any of us can be in at any one time.

How do we, as yoga teachers, facilitate flow? How do we allow our classes to transcend the mundane focus of "vinyasa" on the body to the elevated meaning of vinyasa as a state of mind? Learn all about how to take your yoga classes to the next (flowing!) level with this podcast!

We all have rituals. But, are we conscious of them?

Our yoga classes provide a prime opportunity to create deeply transformational rituals for our students. But, are we doing that properly?

This podcast illuminates the necessary parts of a ritual, why ritual is so important for us right now, and how you can elevate your yoga classes to the level of transformational ritual. It is through ritual that humanity (throughout history) has elevated its consciousness, created community, and processed challenging events. This is something we can facilitate within ourselves and our students if we know the secret ingredients to creating powerful rituals in our classes!

The tarot deck may seem a far-fetched compliment to yoga, but actually, it is one of the best tools we can utilize to get answers for ourselves and our clients NOW.

If your students ask you big questions like, "what should I do about my relationship?" or, "Should I change jobs?" then having a skill like the tarot is perfect for giving your students the confidence they need to pursue their fullest purpose. We, as spiritual leaders, must think outside the box and serve our clients in a different way than traditional medical or mental health practitioners.

Stepping into our power as Modern Mystics necessitates a bigger repertoire -- one that goes beyond asana. This podcast will answer questions that center around how to hone your skills as a spiritual leader, why having a divination tool like the tarot is important, and why being able to serve your clients on a spiritual level is so critical right now.
