Welcome to The Inner Guide School!

Here you will find offerings that will inspire, excite and lead you on a journey of Self discovery. At the Inner Guide School we answer the call of our Sacred Path influenced by Earth Wisdom, Reiki, Yoga, Ecotherapy and Self Reliance. This school is an intuitive exploration of self healing through the re-connection with traditional modalities of Spiritual Practice.

2016 Inner Guide Apprenticeship Program:

January - April 2016


We are so excited to be offering the first year of The Inner Guide Apprenticeship Program. This is an accelerated program designed to inspire, challenge, transform and lead the participant to tools and experiences that initiate the highest expression of the authentic Self possible. This is a place of balance, wholeness and Self discovery. From this program participants will leave having experienced an understanding of the truth of who they really are that is personal and transformative.  An experience of direct revelation. Indisputable.  This is a process to discover the inner mystic that leads us to our own personal truth and learn to express this in the world fully. Those interested in being facilitators of yoga, self healing, earth wisdom will leave with the tools to begin this journey from a safe and informed place based on personal knowing.

This program will be deeply founded in the traditional practices from the Holy Science of Yoga, Earth Wisdom, Self Reliance, Ecotherapy, and energy work.

*** If you are looking for a traditional Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher Training Program this is not the program you are looking for. If you are looking for a uniquely powerful  experience of Self discovery that incorporates skills that will lead you to facilitate a safe and powerful sacred space that includes yoga this is perfect!

Students will meet twice a month for three months beginning in January and have an intensive 4 day meeting the last time we meet in April , see below for weekend dates. We have developed a uniquely tailored program that cultivates each individual's unique gifts to be shared with group and community through the Traditional Science of Yoga, Earth Wisdom and the Magic of  working in circle. Deepening, understanding and healing our local and global community is at the heart of this program. Understanding that each student is also a contributor and without the input, participation and financial backing the program wouldn't be possible. One must only have the authentic desire to dive deeply into the sea of Truth and wish to learn a sacred and beautiful way to assist others to do the same.

Student Testimonials from Audrey's
2015 RTS Shamanic Yoga Teacher Training

It’s hard to put into words what I’ve seen as far as changes. There have been so many. What comes to me most significantly is that as a student, what I look for in a teacher is someone who has integrity. Do the teacher’s words match their actions? Do they practice what they teach? Are they REAL, and honest in their actions and consistent in their intentions? Do they act in a way that encourages strength and independence and assurance in their students, interdependence instead of dependence? Audrey has measured up to ALL of those. She has integrity. Her words match her actions. She practices what she teaches. She’s REAL and honest with her actions as well as consistent with her intentions. She encourages strength and independence and self assurance in her students.

2014 Road to Self teacher training graduates

2014 Road to Self teacher training graduates

In my case, I also wanted to see if what a teacher channeled or said, if the guidance they gave, truly measured up over time into something REAL. That is also true with Audrey. I listen when she speaks, not blindly but with a critical ear, and when I examine it (which I do - up one way and down the other) there is ALWAYS something worthwhile in what she says. I also care about how information is delivered; is it given with freedom for the student to find it in themselves; to gauge, in their own being, if what is being given is something THEY truly resonate with, is the student given room to hear their own voice? In Audrey’s classes, always the answer is: YES!

When I sit down with Audrey in a class, I know I’ll always walk away with something valuable, something I can take and run with, something that I can utilize not only for the moment but years down the line. Deeply nourishing core practices that will allow me to branch and grow in good ways that help me build a strong foundation from which good things can be brought into manifestation in ALL AREAS of my life. Audrey isn’t giving information that will become outdated, she’s helping people truly LIVE, providing balanced ways to navigate, having feet in both worlds.
