Yogaleena School

“Wanting to reform the world without discovering one’s true self is like trying to cover the world with leather to avoid the pain of walking on stones and thorns. It is much simpler to wear shoes.” ― Ramana Maharshi


We are delighted and proud to offer a NEW Yoga Immersion & Mentorship Program this Fall!

We recognize that everything- from the way we work to the way we connect with each other to how we consume information- has changed significantly over the past few months. With that in mind, we’ve reinvented Yogaleena School to provide the same high-quality education and magic we’re known for in a format that makes sense for students at this time.

Moreover, we’ve broken out our program into two tracks, Certification and Mentorship, so that students who wish to deepen their practice but are not interested in formally teaching do not have to complete the practice requirements for certification. Below is a brief summary of each track.


Certification Track: This track is for students interested in formally teaching yoga. Upon graduation, students will have met all requirements to register with the Yoga Alliance and begin their teaching journey.


Rooted in the values of our studio, our Certification Track offers aspiring teachers the opportunity to broaden their understanding of yoga and develop the necessary skills to share it effectively with others. Over the course of 3 months, students will be immersed in the study and practice of the following:  Asana, Anatomy, Philosophy, Sequencing, Meditation, Pranayama, Props & Modifications, Ayurveda, Leadership, and Service. Through discussion, active demonstration, observation, and prompted reflection, students will uncover their unique voice as leaders within the yoga community, learn teaching methodologies to lead inspiring group and/or private yoga classes, and integrate the principles of yoga philosophy, creativity, and self-care into their own lives.

Graduation requirements include teaching 3 donation community classes, passing a written final exam, and completing a service project.

This program will be led by Carolina, E-RYT and owner of Yogaleena Studio, and Bailey Robertson, and supported by several amazing Yogaleena teachers! Our intention is to provide students an intimate, personalized experience and create a safe environment that takes into account social distancing measures currently in place. Spots will be limited to 7 for our Certification Track as most of the program will take place at the studio.

Commitment & Investment: 

  • 5 Immersion Weekends (include 3 mini retreats in nature)
  • Weekly Meetings (Practice/Learning/Discussion)
    • Thursday meetings will be online, via Zoom

Immersion & Mentorship Track: This track is for students who wish to deepen their practice and understanding of yoga, but are not interested in formally teaching.


Students in this track will learn alongside peers in the Certification track in the following modules – offered virtually through Zoom or in our outdoor classroom, the Houston Arboretum: Philosophy, Meditation, Pranayama, Ayurveda, and Leadership. Asana will be explored during individual, private lessons in order to address each students’ specific questions, capabilities, and objectives. In addition, students will meet one-on-one with Carolina for guidance, inspiration, and reflection.

The focus of this mentorship will be application of yoga philosophy and wisdom off the mat. Theory is nice, but it’s within the context of our messy relationships, emotions, and lives that this stuff really serves us! Especially in these turbulent times, a committed practice (asana, meditation, introspection, etc) and nurturing support from a group of like-hearted individuals can offer the tools necessary to cope and find meaning in what we’re experiencing. Whether you’re a mama, an entrepreneur, a corporate leader, a creative, or none of the above/still figuring it our – this program will help you connect with your soul, get clear on your purpose, and lead from the heart.

This program will be led by Carolina, E-RYT and owner of Yogaleena Studio, Bailey Robertson, E-RYT and Yogaleena Studio manager, and supported by several amazing Yogaleena teachers! Our intention is to provide students an intimate, personalized experience and create a safe environment that takes into account social distancing measures currently in place. Spots will be limited to 10 for our Immersion & Mentorship Track, which takes place virtually through Zoom or outdoors.

What Our Grads are Saying…

” The Yogaleena YTT embodies a sense of genuine camaraderie and community. I learned so much through the teachers and also from my fellow trainees. Through the rich teachings and discussions on the yoga sutras and philosophies, my relationship with yoga has moved from beyond just my mat to my daily life. I also learned to utilize the support from the instructors and trainees to push myself into spaces that felt uncomfortable and new – like teaching a class! “

-Catherine Comiskey, 2019 YS Grad

” Enrolling in Yogaleena School was both timely and completely life-changing for me. I found myself in an organic community of women that was more welcoming and supportive than I have ever experienced, and I know that these friendships are going to last a long time.

I thought it was going to be very difficult to juggle the schedule with my gigs, but Carolina and the other instructors were so gracious and flexible. The information taught was both broad and in depth, and I feel like I was given just enough to pique my interest but not feel overwhelmed.

Having been trained in such an amazing environment with such amazing people, I feel fully equipped to begin teaching yoga and deepening my own yoga journey! “

– Ellen Story, 2019 YS Grad

” Moving to Houston and immediately starting this training the next month was the best thing I could have done. Everyone involved became my family. We went so much deeper into philosophy and self reflection than I anticipated and it has allowed me to grow as a person and to make powerful connections with this amazing group of ladies. Between the weekends, books, online course, and guest teachers I learned so much and have so many resources to reference in the future. Thank you for creating a beautiful and safe place. Although I am sad that this part of my journey is over, I feel prepared and excited to start teaching! “

– Maci Farmer, YS 2019 Grad (and YL Teacher)
