Here's what they had to say about the DYT program.

Megan Noel

Oakland, California

I am so grateful I found Angie! I started the DYT mentorship program right after completing my 200 HR yoga teacher certification program. I felt lost after my training, with no clear vision of where I should get started as a teacher. Angie gave me so much more than guidance. Her feedback and the modules she created really helped me pin point which steps I needed to take to be a successful yoga teacher AND entrepreneur. On top of all of that, my brand identity completely upgraded after completing this program. I now have brand colors and a brand style that perfectly aligns with my personality. Angie truly wants to see her mentees win. I honestly can't recommend this program enough. It was an absolute game changer for me, and I'm so honored to have someone like Angie in my corner.

Melody Sylvain

Dubai, U.A.E.

I learned so many tools in the DYT program from marketing to getting over self-doubt. I'm especially thankful for Angie's dedication and passion to empower women of color to step up in wellness. I also made life long friends during the program who shared this journey with me and I will be forever grateful for the experience.


Los Angeles, CA

In Angie's DYT program I gained lots of valuable information! Out of all the mentorship programs this is by far one of the smartest investments I've made for my brand. I also recommend this program because everything is presentable and she walks you through a new focus week by week. And it’s amazing that even after the program you still have access to DYT community shall you have any questions and simply just want to share what you’ve learned. Even weeks after I am able to still put the information I’ve learned into practice. Thank you Angie!

London McElvaine

Denver, CO

The DYT mentorship gave me direction and focus at a time when I was feeling so lost on my path. Angie shows up to this program with so much integrity and authenticity and its contagious. I finished this program with clarity of my next steps and a deep connection to my purpose as a yoga teacher. If you are looking to break free from the status quo of yoga studio culture, this mentorship will rock your world.

Shakeelah Sutton

Washington, D.C.

The DYT program taught me a great deal about creating a wellness brand from the ground up. Not only have I gained foundational business and marketing tools, I’ve developed the confidence necessary to grow as an entrepreneur for the benefit of my community.
