You and I both know you were put on the planet to serve + do big things.

There is just one problem. There is a gap between where you are now and where you want to be.

I’m glad you’re here. I can help. 

Does any of this resonate?

  • You feel overwhelmed, uncertain, not sure where to focus your energy and what steps to take next in your teaching and career evolution.

  • You just graduated YTT or graduated a while back but are not sure what to do, how to set up your business, get your foot in the door at your local studio or how to stand out in the sea of teachers.

  • You are a seasoned teacher, feeling stagnated, and ready to optimize your existing business, create new offerings and rise to the next level.

  • You show up fully, do the work, give it your all, but that cold-pressed green juice still feels like a splurge.

  • You are lacking confidence, find yourself in comparison mode and listen to the inner critic more than you listen to your higher self.

  • You tell your students how important a home practice is … but you’re stretched too thin to do your own.

  • Teaching Yoga isn’t just a job — it’s a calling. But lately, you’ve worried: how do I make this career sustainable?

Sound familiar? You are NOT ALONE.

Since 2008 I have mentored and supported hundreds of yoga teachers from around the world who felt lost, overwhelmed, intimidated, stale or disheartened and set in motion powerful shifts.

Regardless of where you are on the path, if you are wondering what you can do today to make the biggest impact and take your business to the next level you have landed in the exact right place and the right time.

Don’t just take my word for it, listen to success stories from participants.

“Katie Brauer is a rising leader and powerhouse yogi” ~ Forbes Magazine, 2017

Hi, I’m Katie Brauer

Yoga has my heart — but entrepreneurship is in my blood.

I’ve lived in a cave in India, showering out of a bucket … and I love glitzing it up on the town. I’ve been featured in Forbes, Entrepreneur, on Gaiam TV, and at Wanderlust. I’ve busted apart my body and put myself together again. I’ve created a 5-star Yoga Alliance-accredited Teacher Training Certification program that’s graduated over 900+ happy skilled teachers and I have licensed my teacher training programs to individual leaders, along with one of the fastest growing boutique yoga companies in the US.

I’ve garnered the respect of my colleagues by speaking up even when it would have been easier to stay nice ’n small. I’ve rocked the mic at TEDx, put everything on the line for my integrity, and built a reputation, an income, and a life as a Yoga Professional that feeds my soul and buys Valentino pumps.

I’m successful because I’m true to myself. And I love helping people like you live fearlessly in your truth — and be of service to the world.

Look, the “broke ’n burned out” yogi cliché is a myth — and it doesn’t serve anyone. Not you, not your children (or future children), and certainly not the students who look up to you. When you know yoga’s your calling, you have a responsibility to show up as a professional.

I’ve poured two decades of insight, experience, and know-how into this program because I’m fiercely committed to your success. I want to save you from years of being so lost and frazzled, you have to skip your own yoga practice — the very stuff that ignited your heart and soul, in the first place.

You deserve so much better than that. You know it. (And when you forget it, I’ll remind you.)

We all need mentors: someone to advocate for our greatness, call us out on our BS (with love) and show us the blueprint we need to be really and truly successful. This is what I love doing. And this is precisely why I created this program for you.

Yup: it takes hard work. No doubt. (But I know you’re not afraid of getting down to it.) When you’ve got me in your corner, a results-driven roadmap, and a supportive community … it is 100% possible to create the yoga career you’ve dreamed of.

I give you my word.

 Try this:

Make an impact. Share your gifts. Facilitate life-changing experiences for your community. Earn incredible money with impeccable integrity. And still have time to sip a rosé by the pool.

Starting at $297/Month – Flexible Payment Plan


Zero fluff.

The Yoga Professional Incubator© won’t waste an ounce of your precious time or energy. (Which is important when your lunch break is that long red light as you drive from one studio or client to another.)

I’ll show you how to cut away the superfluous stuff that’s sucking your time and focus on the truly important bits — whether we’re talking about streamlining your asana sequences or setting yourself up for sustainable financial success.

Our lessons are always brief, potent, and immediately actionable. And they’ll never rot on your hard drive.

Online learning = no airfare or vacation time required.

You’ll get a robust hybrid of learning styles, including group coaching calls, self-paced solo work, and opportunities for one-on-one mentoring — no matter what time zone you tune in from. Plus, you’ll have access to the entire course (including records of everything) for 12 months, to revisit any time you’re pivoting or need a boost.


If you are here, know that the Universe is conspiring for your greatest good. 

This is the foremost virtual incubator for yoga teachers ready to build the powerhouse, profitable, passion-fueled lives and businesses they’ve always dreamed of.

It would be my honor to be a part of YOUR journey.

You’ve already proven you’ve got what it takes.

You took a sharp left turn instead of doing what was expected. You’ve followed your heart, sacrificed stability for service and traded the status quo for living a truly authentic life.

Your dad might think this “yoga thing” is just a phase, but your heart knows: you are not crazy. You are courageous … and you’re just getting started.

But you are stuck in a rut, struggling to see the bigger picture, lost and wondering what to do next, and how to make your passion and purpose sustainable.

How do you shift from doing yoga to living it, heart-on-fire, sustainably?

Especially when it seems like every other yoga teacher is struggling just as much as you are. Hang with me, I got you.

Lemme lay some facts on you:


If you’re not making money teaching yoga, you’re doing something wrong. But you’re not alone.

- 50% of yoga teachers earn under $36,000 per year.
- Only 10% earn more than $63K.
- And only one teeny-tiny percent of yoga teachers crack 6 figures.

Make less than $36K
Make less than $63K
Make less than $100K

Now’s the time to rise, as a leader. But how?

Truly great yoga teachers don’t just know the nuts ’n bolts of anatomy, sequencing, and Sanskrit.

They radiate confidence. They live responsibly. They’ve created systems and strategies that keep them from burning out (or needing a side hustle). They’re committed to having an impact, changing the world, and living their life to the fullest. They learn business strategy along with pranayama. They thrive in the outer world without sacrificing their spiritual journey.

They’ve found mentors to help them grow from teachers … into leaders.

If you want exceptional results, you need an exceptional approach.

You have to challenge your beliefs and do the work. You need a smart and soulful mentor. Someone who’s actually rocking it and has proven they can empower others to make an impact, cultivate a thriving business, and a rich life. Someone to show you the way and hold you accountable when things get tough.

But most of all? You have to choose it.

Learn + Apply the 4 Pillars that set apart truly SUCCESSFUL Yoga Teachers

Starting at $297/Month – Flexible Payment Plan


I will show you how to turn your passion into a thriving career
that supports YOU, your community, and your cashflow.

6-Month Program Curriculum - Begins October 4, 2018

  • MODULE 1: Shift Your Teaching Paradigm

    Discover a revolutionary revamp to your teaching style that simultaneously honors your yoga roots and shows you how to facilitate a more modern, empowering, multidimensional experience that leaves your students feeling expanded and wanting more.

    I am talking, interpersonal skills, teaching methodologies, and qualities that will help set you apart from other yoga teachers and create overflowing classes with a large, loyal student following.

  • MODULE 2: Deep Roots, Abundant Future

    If you want to soar high and create abundance, you first need to go deep and tend to your roots.

    Get ready for a no joke, cosmic two-by-four that’ll bop you square in the head (and heart) and wake you up to precisely why you keep getting stuck … and what your Higher Self is demanding of you.

    We will dive deep and identify your current “operating system” of beliefs, patterns, and core wounds. You’ll do a pattern recognition exploration to uncover unresolved trauma and begin the root healing work needed to set yourself up for massive success. Then, you’ll learn the simple energetics of manifestation, so you can stop procrastinating when things get hard, discern when to let go of a dream, and when to buckle down and get ‘er done, (this isn’t woo-woo, it’s science).

    This module is an absolute game-changer for most graduates, leaving you with the ah-ha’s, inspiration, and oomph to answer the call of your Highest Self and redirect the course of your life (especially when things get tough).

  • MODULE 3: Own your Finances, Empower your Destiny

    By the end of this module, you will be throned the King or Queen of your Financial Realm. We’ll go down the rabbit hole together to investigate your money story, clean up and organize your current financial landscape, and establish foundational structures and systems for your financial growth.

    What we cover in this module will leave you so far ahead of the curve, you will walk away feeling empowered and ready to capture an abundant financial flow.

  • MODULE 4: Solid Foundation + Legal Set Up

    The launch pad to long-term success requires you to establish a rock-solid business infrastructure that covers all bases and protects you for years to come. Listen, there are crazy people out there, (it only takes one), and the IRS knows where you live, so it is best to set up a robust business security blanket that will protect you for years to come.

    In this module, we will cover the logistics of your Business Set Up, Accounting, Taxes, Contracts, Waivers, Insurance, and more. Sound fun? I swear, after this module, you will feel like a total boss and sleep deeper at night knowing you have your ass covered.

  • MODULE 5: Manifest Your Dream (and Make Money)

    Time for some serious fun. The sky is the limit. In this module it is time to let your heart sing its greatest desires, and for you to listen.

    Here you will get intensely connected to your Why, create crystal clarity of your Who, and start crafting your What. (So crucial for your bottom line).

  • MODULE 6: Long Term Strategy + Staircase to Success

    96.8% of yoga teachers don’t (or don’t know how to) create a long-term strategy. So they wonder, year after year, why they are still struggling and haven’t built momentum.

    Not you! You’ll learn to strategize like a boss using my results-driven model. We’ll identify your long-term goals, then examine your current rhythm and re-work it to serve your long-term strategy. You’ll begin implementing changes with confidence, knowing you’re stair stepping your way to success (on your terms).

  • MODULE 7: Create Captivating Branding

    Now you know where you are going, it’s time to create your very own creative, cohesive branding that feels authentic to you and makes sure you stand out from the crowd.

    You will complete this module with a full-blown branding and media kit that will save you time, money and your sanity as you forge forward on your path.

  • MODULE 8: Evolve from Teacher to Professional

    How can you up your game, claim your gifts, establish yourself as a professional, increase your value in the community, and command higher rates?

    This is where inner transformation meets outer poise and professionalism. It’s your time to suit up, show up and get all your duckies in a row. Along with getting yourself ridiculously organized, you will learn about the key qualities and functions that differentiate a teacher from a Pro.

  • MODULE 9: Create your Signature Offering + Facilitate a Remarkable Experience

    You don’t get a huge, loyal following of students by merely teaching classes — you need to facilitate experiences. Huge difference! This what great yoga professionals do, and it’s a completely different beast, requiring you to show up in a different way.

    Learn how to facilitate like a pro: whether it’s a class, workshop, intensive, immersion, retreat or training. Sharpen the tools and presence you need to birth your signature offering and boost your bottom line.

  • MODULE 10: Marketing + Messaging

    Now you’ve branded yourself and created your signature offerings — it’s time to broadcast them to the world in big, bold, creative ways.

    How do you avoid marketing yourself in schmaltzy or ineffective ways? Learn the specific messaging strategies and tools to foster a genuine connection with your community — across all channels. We will cover website, social channels, client relationship management and more.

  • MODULE 11: Structures, Systems, Strategy

    I know, I know: you don’t want to be hemmed in by rules and contracts and systems. But when you use structure the right way, it will free you up for more spontaneity.

    I will introduce you to systems that minimize overwhelm, keep you organized and on your A-game, as you continue to build momentum, hit your stride and bring your dreams to life.

  • MODULE 12: High Five Your Highest Self

    Real Yoga Pros know: celebration is a crucial skill that keeps you motivated, grounded, and tuned in. Identify your wins, claim your progress, and take a big bow for making some serious magic happen.

    The future is yours, Yoga Pro!

Stepping up your game is a sacred responsibility — not just to yourself, but to everyone whose life you can touch.


Enrollment Closes In

Investing in yourself + the TYP Incubator could change everything.

And for many, many teachers it already has.

Ask yourself this: 

What could be possible as an independent yoga teacher if you spent 6-months guided by a powerhouse team and surrounded by a beautiful, supportive and kick-ass community that has your back every step of the way?

— Here’s the tough love truth—

  • If you’re broke in the yoga biz, you’re doing something wrong.
  • Healthy boundaries make you more effective (and generous), not less (or bitchy).
  • If you can’t remember the last time you took a day off, there’s a problem.
  • Enough with the patchouli.
  • Wanting a retirement fund doesn’t make you a sell-out. And having a business plan doesn’t make you un-spiritual.
  • You’ve got greatness within you. OWN IT. I’ll give you the blueprint and be your guide.

Savvy strategy + inner transformation + rock solid mentoring =

You, aflame with purpose.

When you’re a yoga professional, you can:

  • Afford a vacation. And those slingbacks. (Really.)
  • Stop worrying you’ll have to go back to your day job.
  • Earn the respect of friends, colleagues, and even your judgy uncle —  because you’re rockin’ it.
  • Shut up the “itty bitty shitty committee” that’s keeping you paralyzed with perfectionism, self-criticism, and playing small.
  • Stand out from the crowd by honing in on your unique gifts and qualities — and sharing them in magnetic ways that serve.
  • Facilitate powerful, soul-stirring group experiences that take students on a profound journey of healing + transformation.
  • Draw clear, healthy boundaries and be impeccable with your word + follow-through.
  • Stop wondering how you’ll afford retirement if you don’t win the lottery — because you’ve got your sh*t figured out.
  • Know how to have those tough conversations with students and colleagues — in conscious, gracious ways.
  • Be so great at your craft, even your off-peak classes have a waiting list.
  • Free up the bandwidth to plan ahead (so you never need to scramble for a sub the week or day before).

And you can also:

  • Clearly communicate your value and requests in ways that make it easy for people to say yes.
  • Claim precisely where you are on your path — with appropriate humility and confidence.
  • Build real relationships with your students that support their success without blurring your boundaries.
  • Feel held, challenged, and supported by a rock-solid community.
  • Be able to show up completely for your work, even when you had a monster of a day (or week!).
  • Find the sweet spot between freedom and structure that best supports you and your career.
  • Stop overextending and exhausting yourself.
  • Stop obsessing over tiny details and focus on what really matters.
  • Become the supreme gatekeeper of your time. In your classes and your whole life.
  • Realize how freaking amazing you are.

Fantastic Questions & Answers

  • When does the TYP Incubator Kick Off?

    Registration Closes on Sunday, September 23rdd, 2018.

    The Incubator starts on Thursday, October 4th, 2018 and completes March 21st, 2019.

    Live Sessions take place bi-monthly on Thursdays at 1:00pm PST and are available shortly thereafter on the membership site and accessible 24hrs a day.


  • Do I need to teach a certain style of yoga to do this?

    Nope! This is open to all lineages and levels of experience. I’m not worried about where you came from — I’m devoted to where you want to go.

  • I’m brand-new to teaching… is this for me?

    YES. This will give you the foundation you need for a successful career, right off the bat … and save you YEARS of running in circles. There’s no reason to put it off.

  • I’ve been teaching yoga for years … is this for me, too?

    Abso-friggin-lutely. It’s never too late to work toward your dreams and thrive with even greater efficiency and effectiveness.

  • What if I’m not good enough to do this program?

    Rubbish. You’re 100% good enough! And when you’re not sure, I’ll remind you. Because this is what I’m really good at. I can see the best version of you, bring it to the surface, and show you how to put her in charge of driving your life.

  • Do all of your graduates sound exactly the same, in their branding and teaching?

    Not a chance. You’ll learn to celebrate your uniqueness. The real deal, deep-down kind that makes you an incredible professional — and attracts the clients you LOVE working with.

  • What happens in the live group coaching sessions?

    Coaching straight from me (Katie) about everything from strategic tools to teaching techniques to business blueprints to conscious communication to deep personal transformation. Laser coaching and guided experiences. Moments of reflection. Interaction out the yang.

  • What if I miss a class?

    No worries. They’re all recorded so you can watch ‘em later. (You’ll probably want to re-watch some of them, anyway — they’re pretty potent.)

  • Is there a payment plan?

    Yup! You can either pay in full OR pay in 6 monthly installments.

  • Who should NOT take this?

    If you’re not willing to do the work, please save your cash. If you need to be right 100% of the time, you probably won’t dig my style. If you’re hopelessly addicted to hyper-masculine, ultra-rigid techniques … I can only help you open to the flow so much. If you just want a magic recipe that’ll save you from doing any work, sorry, doesn’t exist.

  • If I don’t do this now, when’s the next time you’ll offer it? I’m already stretched so thin!

    The Yoga Professional Incubator only happens once a year. (Because I believe in sustainable workflow and weekends with Pinot Grigio for you AND me!) But let’s get brutally honest for a minute: if you keep going how you’re going, are you really going to have more time and money, this time next year? Or is signing up now going to be just the thing you need to set you up for success, this year?

  • Is this a Yoga Alliance Accredited Program?

    Yes. If you are a registered teacher with yoga alliance you will receive 50 continuing education non-contact hours and up to 30 non-contact teacher training hours toward Sacred Lasya and The Yoga Professional  300-hr training. You will receive a checklist with details about completing these requirements for hours upon registering.

  • Will I receive a certificate upon completing this training?

    Yes, you will receive a certificate of completion once you complete the training and successfully complete the assignments.

  • What’s the meaning of life?

    The moment is now. Turn within. Transform yourself. Love deeper. Serve others. Have fun.

  • Am I guaranteed to make money?

    This isn’t a get rich quick scheme, and I can’t promise anyone a 6-figure business in six months. But here’s what I know for sure: if you follow my guidance, put in place the systems and strategies you’ll learn, and do the inner work, too — you’ll get incredible results. I know this because I’ll be teaching you exactly what I did to go from zilch to 6-figures and beyond, as a Yoga Professional. You don’t have to pray for some serendipity or lightning flash to become a thriving, happy Yoga Professional. If you put in the time to build your skill set and momentum, you WILL create your own success.

  • What happens when I click “buy”?

    You’ll be sent to a registration page and once you complete registration you will receive an email with everything to get you prepped and ready to rock ’n roll.

    Then, once the program begins on October 4th, you’ll get access to the private members’ area where all the course material lives and get plugged into the amazing TYP community.
