Live and breathe authentic yoga
with confidence and integrity

Nourish yourself and your personal yoga practice with spiritual depth,
consistent practice and community connection.

Most yoga teachers don’t have authentic sangha (community) where they can learn and deepen with the full spectrum of yoga.

Do you struggle with:

  • Being so busy that it’s hard to
    maintain your personal yoga practice?
  • Missing the magic you felt when you first started yoga and wishing you could have that back?
  • Wanting to go deeper with yoga but finding many books or teachings are hard to understand?
  • Feeling unsure how to appropriately include yoga philosophy when coming up with class sequences?

You might not be able to go to India right now, but -you can still immerse yourself in authentic yogic wisdom.

Mantra, mudra, pranayama, the full expanse of yoga philosophy.

Journey with Rich Yoga Traditions made Easy

Powerful teachings - bite sized.

So that you can easily journey into the heart of Yoga:

Sutras, Mantra, Mudra, Mythology, Stories and Rituals of yoga.

Imbue your daily life with yoga philosophy.

Go from Lone Wolf to
Part of the Pack

Deepen as an embodied yoga leader.

Connect in supportive community.

Instead of feeling like you’re out there on your own, you’ll be part of an uplifting group that will support you to show up consistently for your practice.

Teach with Confidence and Expand Your Impact

With philosophy and authentic practice at your fingertips

Done-for-you yoga class plans

You can lead your classes with genuine yogic values

and take your students deeper. You will be leading by example.

Keeping up your personal practice can be hard without spiritual depth or community

I know you want to be a yoga leader who sparks powerful growth in your students and in the world. In order to do that, you need to embody authentic yoga.

The problem is, it’s hard to go deeper with the full spectrum of yoga in culture that encourages competition over connection. You end up feeling frustrated, lacking or doubting yourself.

I believe that yoga is not something you do, it’s something you are. I understand the struggle that comes with wanting to deepen in yoga but not knowing where or how to do it.

This is why I created Yoga Class Curator - to help yoga teachers and devoted practitioners practice and teach authentic yoga, so they can lead by example and live their yoga!

Susanna Restival Bio Headshot

Yoga Class Curator is unique because:

  • It’s digestible & applicable. You’ll receive powerful teachings presented in profoundly simple ways so they are easy to understand and applicable in modern daily life.
  • It’s actively inclusive. You’ll practice and teach these traditions in an accessible, non-hierarchical way - all bodies are equitably supported and valued.
  • It’s the real deal. I’ve spent 100s of hours distilling these teachings so you are learning real, culturally rooted, authentic yoga without compromise. Each Yoga Class Curator issues is like a precious gem, clarified through deep and passionate effort.

I know that living and teaching authentic yoga is how we embody the heart of this rich practice as a pathway to personal and social transformation.

Your impact on your students will be limited or expanded by the depth of your personal practice and experience.

Join us in community to nourish yourself and infuse your life with yoga’s roots, so that you can be the change the world needs as an embodied, authentic yoga leader.

YES! This program is intended to create spiritual depth and an ongoing community of practice. There are yoga teacher trainings, but what after? Within the lineage, there is ongoing study with a mentor or a teacher. In traditional yoga, it's not like you do a YTT and you are done. You have an ongoing learning and studentship and forever deepen your practice. Yoga Class Curator is here to support you with living and embodying your practice before, during and after YTT.

Upon completion of this course and all requirements, you will receive a certificate of completion from Ignite Institute for Yogic Leadership and Social Change. Ignite is a registered training school recognized and approved by Yoga Alliance. Susanna Barkataki, Ignite Institute's founder and lead teacher, is an E-RYT-500 and Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YAECP.) Yoga Teachers will receive 20 Continuing Education units (CE's) for Yoga Alliance (YA). (20 units is the maximum non-contact hour YA allows per year.) You will receive your electronic Certificate of Completion for Yoga Class Curator once you have completed the course and submit your Yoga Sadhana Pathway, as well as your evaluation form at the end of the course.

This program begins right away when you enroll. You get immediate access to the introductory course "Yoga Spiritual Growth Path" and the first issue, AHIMSA.

Your deep dive into the heart of yoga begins right away. You'll get a special welcome as you prepare for your adventure into living yoga. Each month you'll enjoy a yoga experience. Your life will be enriched by the dharma talk, mantra, meditation, Mudra and practice anchoring you through the month. You can attend the Puja and Pilgrimage and Office Hours with Susanna live or watch the recording afterwards On Demand, as you prefer. Your life will be enriched by living yoga fully and you can start right now!

No! You just need a sincere desire to learn the heart of yoga and maybe want to deepen your practice! Though many students are yoga teachers, you don't have to be a yoga teacher. Students from all different backgrounds from education to mental health have taken this curriculum and benefited. All you need is a sincere desire to learn.

This program is specially designed to support you through a transformative educational process. This is a year-long program created to support you in achieving your goals of consistent practice, deeper understanding, building community and spiritual growth with yoga. Over the course of the year there will be breaks and creative spaces that can be engaged with non-linearly. So you can start now and continue to digest as you evolve and grow over the year. If you are enjoying deepening with yoga and desire an ongoing space of study and practice, you're welcome to re-enroll and stay in YCC for another year, for as long as you'd like. The curriculum will grow and build each year.

Live Pilgrimage and Pujas are included each month on the last Wednesday of the month at 1 PM PST/ 4 PM EST / 9PM GMT. Susanna holds a powerful experience for you to embody the energy of the moment, hone your practice, and refine the yoga you really love - aligned with your values! These Pilgrimages and Pujas can change the trajectory of participants' days, months and careers and are a hugely impactful part of the program! Participants LOVE these deep dive sessions and rave about their benefits!

You are enrolling in a year-long program. Due to the in-depth nature of Yoga Class Curator and this work you are accountable to pay for the year and there is a no refund policy for course participation. We offer the extended payment plan as a courtesy upon request of many of our students to create greater access. Please see our Terms for more details.

YES, you can do this! This course is for anyone who loves yoga. It is easily accessible and do-able, plus you have access to it for the entire year to go deeper and deeper!
Any growth worth really diving into will often bring up some nervousness. This nervousness is often a great sign that you are ready to grow in a meaningful way. This experience is here to support you.
It may get a little uncomfortable at times, but you will be supported by the meditations, journal prompts and community here to engage and uplift you.
If you are here, I know you are a seeker who wants to bring more vitality and authenticity to your yoga practice. You really care about this stuff. And that is great, because I do too, and we are in this together! You've got this! Reclaiming, unpacking and honoring yoga is such a worthwhile adventure.

This is "yoga school," not "school" school. It's a yoga learning and deepening experience! If you are willing to invest about an hour a week and show up for your own yoga practice and growth, you can totally do this! Each month is a yoga experience with a yoga philosophy Dharma Talk, one Asana practice as well as a guided meditation and action/reflection section. You can watch/listen on the go and complete the practices on your own time. We've got some great incentives inside the course to keep you motivated and on track as you are learning! It's decolonized learning and yoga experience. The practices are short, do-able and based on an evidence based system to anchor in depth of practice for your success.

This is more of a practice than a course. It is supportive and evidence-based to give you the benefits of consistent practice, depth of understanding and spiritual growth with yoga. It is specifically designed by an educator to be accessible, thought-provoking, challenging in all the right ways - as well as enjoyable. Each of the short and informational experiences will help you deepen your connection to yoga while helping you gain time back to do things you want to do in life, with more care and presence!
I often say, no matter how far we've strayed, all it takes is one decision to come back to alignment.
As a teacher, I think about the best ways that people REALLY LEARN! So we've got some ritualized practices too - that means some fun and great tools inside the course to keep you motivated and on track as you are learning!

Your investment in the program supports you as well as other folks in learning, deepening in honoring the roots of yoga. A portion of the profits goes to supporting the roots of yogic traditions in yoga's homeland of India as well as to support equity and diversity initiatives in Yoga in the West.

We want everyone to have access to going deeper with yoga, and this is why we've already configured this course to give you maximum value. We've brought the price down below value to create greater access.

Because we offer this low price given the value, and offer an extended payment plan, at this time we do not offer scholarships for Yoga Class Curator. We focus our fundraising and scholarship efforts towards Yoga Teacher Training. We would love to have you join us in Yoga Class Curator to dive deep, embody, practice, and live authentic yoga.
