Elevate Yoga Training Portland

What is Elevate?

Elevate Yoga Trainings are programs providing aspiring AND existing yoga teachers with a powerful combination of personalized mentorship, customized workshops, unique lectures, effective, practical, hands-on training, peer group sessions taught and facilitated by Jill Knouse and the most sought after yoga educators from Portland and around the country.

Significant time and focus is dedicated to remembering and cultivating who you are as a teacher, as well as, who you are as a person. Gain clarity, confidence, integrate all parts of yourself and connect deeply with the wholeness of who you are.

Together, we will hone in on what makes you truly unique, so that you may align with your purpose, differentiate yourself and integrate all parts of YOU into your offering.

“In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself.”

– Jiddu Krishnamurti


These programs are limitless and without boundaries or dogma; it doesn’t matter where you trained, it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been teaching or if you’ve even started teaching. There are no studio affiliations, in fact, we invite in the best teachers from a multitude of studios in Portland and beyond. We explore a vast array of topics, ideas and beliefs to broaden your scope and lead you towards your own personal clarity. We don’t want you to teach like us. We want you to truly embody who you are and TEACH LIKE ONLY YOU CAN. It’s expansive. The educators come from many backgrounds. They bring their unique thoughts, life experiences, passions and yoga teachings to the mix to share with you. Elevate meets you exactly where you are and the possibilities for growth are endless.

“There’s nothing else like [Elevate Yoga Trainings] in the country and I was so privileged to share the afternoon with you.

Sometimes we forget that teaching yoga is a powerful journey that gives us the opportunity to reach people really, really deeply.

Each class, each student, each moment counts.

Of course that is easily forgotten when we are teaching the 3rd class of the day and the 18th class of the week.

Thus the power of Jill, Elevate, and staying connected.”
