YOUR own practice foundation

More than ever... yogis are struggling to get a custom practice plan.

There's so much 'teacher training' out there, it's become impossible to know what's right for you. 

I am going to show you how to get there.

learn how to live long, live well


yoga foundations course 

includes over $200 of workshop material:

  • 1x free practice and 2 free lectures, come see what my yoga teacher training is all about.

  • 3hrs of learning for free.

  • 60min - Yin Yoga Workshop class.

  • 60min lecture - Moving YOUR body YOUR way.

  • 60min lecture - Why we practice yoga.

"The way you think about your unique body will never be the same." - Jane B.

This is something I normally charge US$200 in a workshop for.
But for you, it's free.

now, you might me wondering...

“Why on earth is Dhugal being so  crazy giving away his knowledge... and doing all of this for me today... and for free?!

Well, there’s no point in sugar-coating it... 
I’m giving you this because I want to mentor and teach you in the first 50hrs of my 200hr, Yin Yoga: The Deep Practice Teacher Training.

It’s a bribe as I said.

But if you’re here right now, I know it’s because of one of two reasons: ​

Reason #1— you’ve been wanting to try your hand at this yoga/yin yoga/teacher training thing... maybe to fix your back... or to pass on the gift of yoga in a new career... But maybe you haven’t yet because you’re sitting back trying to make sure you have all of the right (yoga) moves BEFORE you start. But really... the truth is... you may feel just a tad bit “silly” that you are not yogi or yoga teacher material.

Reason #2 — you DID try your hand in this yoga thing... and maybe even be or been a teacher... but for whatever reason... it just didn’t “pan-out” as you would have hoped... Maybe you even invested countless hours... drained your savings... and POURED YOUR SOUL into your yoga project, but it all fell apart (injury, money, lost inspiration) and the idea of going back and trying again churns all those feelings of failure like dropping an anxiety bomb in your gut...

You Are Absolutely Not Alone.
I was that person too

(and so were over 1,372 of my training graduates)

And that’s why it’s fate you’re here today...

Now, if you don’t know who I am, my name’s Dhugal Meachem, and I’m the founder of the blackmat yogi school. My personal mission is to help yogis, like yourself, break free from the “rules” that stop us from building a yoga practice for ourselves, free of gurus, dogma and alignment rules (which tell us who is doing poses right and wrong) and achieving the yogic life you want, the yogic life you deserve.

To date, I have helped over 1,372 (and counting) yogis worldwide build & launch their life based on the health and contentment of an empowering yoga practice using  easy-to-understand education and practice. I am an acupuncturist, yogi and yoga teacher trainer with decades of experience. 

This program is open to all. 

[ NOTE: this trial can only be purchased once ]

discover what  yoga is really all about
(because most never do):

  • learn how your unique skeleton defines how YOU move.
  • begin to appreciate what yoga should feel like (and why most yoga teacher cues are a waste of time).
  • learn, from day one how never to get stuck in endless master classes and workshops (which are pointless for most). 
  • understand critical knowledge in considering how to avoid injury in yoga.
