Welcome to the Empower Programme
An online mentorship course to bridge the tricky gap between your Yoga Teacher Training and securely establishing yourself within the Yoga Industry.
This is everything you’re not taught on a Yoga Teacher Training. How to develop your confidence by overcoming your own limitations, how to develop your unique teaching voice, build your brand, your offerings, your niche, attract your ideal clients, take your work online and create an abundant life within this ever-growing market.
Unlike me, you don’t have to navigate this journey alone without guidance and support. Whether you have another job or not, this is an opportunity for newly qualified yoga teachers to understand the entrepreneurial side to their talents whilst undergoing deep inner transformational work, so they can transition with strength and ease from their yoga teacher training into an impactful, genuine and rewarding yoga teaching career.
Choose abundant, intelligent entrepreneurship combined with exceptional teaching to make the most impact for your self, your life and your clients who await your special gifts.
So far, the Empower Programme has supported teachers across 11 Countries worldwide.
100% of participants would recommend Empower to other Yoga Teachers.
The method is GLOBAL and it is POWERFUL.
When you do the WORK to up level your business and your offerings, not only does it scale your creativity, your income and your prosperity but you will see how your transaction = TRANSFORMATION for your soul clients also.
When you invest in yourself and your business, you invest in your clients through BIG IMPACT and sustainable service.

What Graduates are saying...
Hannah - Belgium
During the Empowerment programme, I’ve realised that every yoga teacher has their own way of sharing and teaching, and I do too. The feeling of not being smart enough to start something as successful as other teachers has subsided and the realisation that if you want something for real it’s a matter of persisting and trusting that there’s a path for me! This Programme hands out the tools you need to develop confidence and break down emotional barriers, to get grounded in the yoga industry. The money spent on the course is best seen as an investment, but because of the intake call I felt like it’d be worth it. And it was! I’ve gained confidence in daring to put myself out there and I see teaching classes as a transaction, not something for free. The marketing education has been so helpful in how to attract my ideal clients by speaking my truth, sharing my story and giving them content of value. There’s no more hesitation in knowing that I want to teach yoga for a living, and not just as a side gig. It’s more than okay to ask money for something I’ve invested in a lot myself. It takes time and consistency to build something from scratch and that’s how confidence develops – with showing up consistently!

I went into this course dealing with a lot of imposter syndrome (both personally and professionally). I’ve really enjoyed a lot of the deep personal work; like setting clear and healthy boundaries in my everyday life in order to manage my energy efficiently and prioritise my mental wellbeing (you can’t pour from an empty cup). I’ve benefited hugely from listening to other people’s experiences and loved getting to know the other people on the course. It’s been wonderful embarking on this journey alongside a supportive community, rather than navigating my way into a competitive industry with people reluctant to share any advice for newly qualified yoga teachers. I’m learning to trust my inner voice more – listening to my gut and heart when something doesn’t feel right and then having the strength to say ‘no’ if an action or decision could compromise the integrity of my service! I’ve definitely developed more confidence in my teaching ability and found a deeper respect for the importance of offering rest in my classes (I’ve learnt I really enjoy giving guided meditations and visualisations). In the 3 months I’ve been on the Empower Programme I’ve learnt how to structure and organise my time better; setting specific and achievable goals while scheduling in lots of time for non-negotiable personal rest. I’ve developed more confidence around money mindset (I’m working on how to let go of guilt around charging and placing higher value on the services I offer). I’ve also learnt how to be more strategic and targeted with regards to marketing my services; identifying who my ideal clients are and understanding how to engage with them through the content I post.

In 5 words, upon completing the Empower Package I feel… Empowered! Grounded, strong, clear, free. I have stepped into my own power, and accept and believe that I am worthy of more than I’ve allowed myself to be before. I’ve started to live my yoga practice more, which has definitely shown in my teaching and the way I teach. I teach more from the heart now.
For starters, I’ve become more business savvy and have really started to value myself and the work I do. I’m thinking bigger, in terms of bigger ticket jobs that will really grow what I do and support me. I’ve also been learning to say no more, and to negotiate when terms don’t work for me. I’ve excelled in being assertive, putting myself forward more for work I want, getting in touch with people to find work, and in knowing what does and doesn’t work for me in terms of payment and pricing.

Catherine shows a clear path to how to take your yoga practice to an empowered yoga career. I’ve most enjoyed discovery the “yogi” approach to business and in these 3 months together, I’ve spent my time better, especially in the key morning hours. I feel more productive during the daytime as a result.
Beth - UK
The Programme really encouraged me out of my comfort zone, and is still doing so! This has been a much needed hand held guide into the next steps of who I am as a teacher and what I have to offer. The downloadable resources have been so helpful to understand my progress tangibly. The google sheet is the best thing ever! I have learned to be bolder and not listen to my inner critic, because ‘so what?!’ I have overcome the idea that I am not worthy of sharing what I love just because I can see that other people also in this space are more accomplished than me in the physical postures, and I am beginning to move through the fear of being rejected. This is the beginning of an acceptance to not be everyone’s cup of tea!
Charlotte - Ireland
This was a really great programme for teachers who are developing themselves and want to expand their business. It truly is empowering! I managed to post on social media about teaching and had a very successful Charity yoga class which, had I not been doing this course, I probably would have waited an extra couple of months to do. The sharing of our “expanders” within the Industry was really great and helped to circulate a lot of amazing resources. I really enjoyed the building of a yoga community and the courage this gave me to pursue my chosen yoga teaching path. This course encouraged me to think a lot about how to reach my ideal customers. The resources provided are amazing and so helpful going forward.

Empower is a very good way to connect with a beautiful Community of like-minded yoga teachers and to give yourself time to go deeper into yourself and your business. The biggest change I have seen in myself and my business over the last 3 months is that I am starting to see more my worth, money wise. In 3 months I’ve learned that doing business is also a lot about self-worth. Or actually all about it. For me money always is an issue and I learned that I should ask what I deserve and what I think I am worth. I have removed any fear of asking for my work and I am now very strict in that. This is a hugely empowering change!
Catherine Gallagher EMPOWER PROGRAMME CREATOR
The Empower Programme was birthed two years ago when I began privately mentoring Yoga Teachers interested to understand how I was so quickly scaling my business, accelerating into the retreat industry and finding such loyal clients who consistently returned time and again for my offerings.
Before transitioning into my full time yoga teaching career, I had a legal career as a Barrister followed by a corporate career in a global financial services. I was lucky to have learned these invaluable advocacy skills and developed a business acumen that set me on a trajectory to an abundant life being of impactful service in a Yogic spiritual way.
I’d like to say it was easy. It wasn’t. When I qualified I felt extremely alone in the industry. I didn’t move into this industry to play small with a “side hobby” of teaching yoga. I had moved into this business to change my life and the lives of others through healing work and sustainable business.
I looked afar with huge ambition towards the incredible yoga teachers doing BIG service work whilst doing what they love and making an incredible impact on the wellbeing of their loyal clients. These teachers are my inspiration who’ve helped me expand and overcome my own lack mentality limitations and imposter syndrome blocks. Standing in my power, honouring my true value and worth, showing up with my true authentic voice and being brave enough to share my message with the world is deeply magnetic, attractive and radiant.
It’s these powerful methods, techniques and tools I’ll share with you on the Programme to help you show the world what you’re made of, what you have that’s unique and special by being of true service!
I’ve seen and experienced a LOT – the good the bad and the ugly… success, jealousy, abundance, bullying, even a #metoo incident by a client. I’ve gained multiple brand sponsorships (both great and awful collaborations) and been through numerous yoga teacher trainings across the globe with world class teachers as well as assisting on 200HR trainings. I’ve taught workshops, written yoga and wellness articles, ran events, and taught yoga in all kinds of environments – private yoga, yoga for surfing, karma yoga, corporate yoga, weekly studio classes and run my own international retreats business.
Throughout all of this I have learned that we are stronger together. I’ve developed a stellar support network as I’ve navigated this industry. You will meet them during the Programme. There is no lack mentality here, no competition and no fear. Rather support, growth, progression and abundance via entrepreneurial support and creative guidance of the kind I wish I’d had as a newly qualified teacher.
