What is The Desire Map Facilitator Program?

It’s a revolution, is all — a revolution of the heart.

The Desire Map is a tool for more holistic, heart-centered living. It has sold over 150,000 copies and has been translated into seven languages, and it has helped people all over the world identify their Core Desired Feelings™ and use that clarity to design the lives they want to live. Jobs, quit. Passions, chosen. Relationships transformed. Clarity, achieved! Desires, claimed.

Yoga instructors, wellness coaches, and so many more started saying: “This work is so transformative — how can I bring it to my clients?”

So, we let that enthusiasm lead and turned The Desire Map book into a curriculum for yoga classes, workshops, retreats, coaching and more. We knew this would be deeply transformative work for yoga teachers and students alike. The core curriculum is broken down into two levels:

Level 1: Your Core Desired Feelings, is about people discovering their Core Desired Feelings. This is the deep-down work that helps them reconnect (or sometimes connect for the very first time) to their hearts and the life they’ve been longing for. Level 1 offers that profound glimpse into what can be possible once their compass is re-set to head towards their Core Desired Feelings.

Level 2: Goals with Soul, is all about the practical application of those Core Desired Feelings, helping people design their life and create Goals with Soul. Here, participants can see how their goals are not end destinations in and of themselves, but are sacred choices designed to be in service of their soul work.

Now Desire Map workshops and events are being held all over the globe, and The Desire Map is working its way into yoga studios, yoga retreats, and training programs so other yoga teachers can learn this work. No matter your level of experience as a yoga teacher, you can bring The Desire Map to others and change lives.

How does The Desire Map Facilitator Program work?

In a nutshell: You join the program. We give you all the curriculum and support you need to start facilitating this work right away. Yoga retreats, classes, workshops, or coaching sessions choose them all or take your pick. You make money and keep it all.

Here’s how the process goes:

First, as a Desire Map Facilitator, you will receive The Desire Map core curriculum, broken down into detailed workshop, retreat, and coaching outlines. We have specific and detailed yoga outlines within this core just for yoga teachers. You take that curriculum and facilitate it out-of-the-box for live or virtual events — or you use it as a starting point and customize it.

Then, once you decide on an event or offering, you list them in our event directory, which lives on DanielleLaPorte.com, and receive thousands of visits daily, to help you get the word out!

And last (but definitely not least), you begin selling out yoga workshops, retreats, and events. And the money you make from your offerings is 100% yours to keep.

Our goal is to provide you with gorgeous, intuitive content that’s easy to use and that naturally boosts your earning potential. This curriculum goes far beyond a 90-minute yoga class, with outlines for longer, more in-depth, and transformative yoga workshops and retreats. We love elegance and abundance, and want you to have a ton of both as you pursue this good work.

What's included in the program?

When you join the program and become an official Desire Map Facilitator, you are given everything you need to start facilitating this work right away: curriculum, tools, resources, yoga workshop and retreat outlines, and so much more. Here’s the Desire Map Facilitator program at a glance:

The Desire Map Licensing Guidebook


This guidebook is the ultimate. It has everything you need to hit the ground running. As soon as you sign-up and become a facilitator, we ship you a gorgeous charcoal binder with the printed guidebook. But you don’t have to wait until it arrives, before you begin. We also send you the digital version of the guidebook so you can start planning right away.


Here is the breakdown of everything included in The Desire Map Licensing Program Guidebook:

Click here for the table of contents


The Level 1 Desire Map Workshop curriculum is all about discovery. This curriculum guides people through an exploration of perceptions around the value of feelings, in relation to ambition, external approval, goal-setting, self-love, and respect. This includes group and solo exercises around identifying what they are grateful for and exploring the relationship they have with their own feelings. By the end of the curriculum, they will identify their Core Desired Feelings, a set of feelings that they will use to design their life.


The Level 2 Desire Map Workshop curriculum is all about setting goals and intentions using newly discovered Core Desired Feelings. This curriculum guides people through the exploration of perceptions around goals and goal-setting, in relation to ambition, external approval, and perceived “success.” This workshop creates the space for people to meaningfully reorient their relationship to goals so that they can do, have, and experience what they most desire.

For both the Level 1 & 2 sections of the guidebook, we will also provide you detailed instructions for facilitating the curriculum, such as timestamps for each activity, optional and essential components, customization options, tips for enriching the content with more thoughtful activities or exercises, and extra resources for deepening experiences.


These are detailed outlines for yoga-themed Level 1 & 2 workshops, a Desire Map and Yoga Weekend Retreat outline, and a one-day intensive (that has been used at Yoga Journal LIVE! conferences). We also give you tips from other yoga teachers, examples of activities and meditations to weave into your workshops or classes, and an illustrated Posture & Poses Reference Guide. This chapter also includes two in-depth features for helping your students integrate Core Desired Feelings into their bodies, by Dr. Deb Kern and Rochelle Schieck. This chapter is rich with ready-to-use content so you can set up your retreat, workshop, or class immediately. Non-yoga teachers can also use this chapter for ideas on incorporating movement into your workshops.


This outline contains all the essential elements from the Level 1 curriculum, and approximately 90 minutes of yoga, including meditations, visualizations, and two full yoga practices. This curriculum explores the perceptions around ambition, feelings, goal-setting, and external approval, in relation to the mind and body. As your class moves through the poses and meditations, they will also be moving toward their Core Desired Feelings and Goals with Soul.


This three-day retreat outline takes the Level 1 Desire Map curriculum with yoga elements and spreads them over a luscious long weekend for a deeper approach to Desire Mapping, including chakra work, meditation, and yoga practices. This workshop can easily be adapted to incorporate one or both levels of the Desire Map curriculum. Take this retreat to the beach, rent a cabin for the weekend and curl up with everyone by the fire, or plan an exotic destination trip for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.


Take The Desire Map right to your yoga students. SOUL LIMBER is a detailed yoga practice outline the weaves the thoughtful inquiry of Desire Mapping into a yin and yang yoga practice. This 60-minute Desire Map-inspired yoga class can be used as a soft introduction to your yoga students so you can promote your workshop or retreat. You can use this class just before starting the Desire Mapping process or when you are ready to revisit your Core Desired Feelings and goals. SOUL LIMBER brings the magic of The Desire Map right to the yoga studio so teachers and students alike can feel its power — and sign up for more.


This is a one-day intensive workshop, which has been featured at Yoga Journal LIVE! Conferences and Wanderlust Yoga Studio, captures elements of the Level 1 & 2 curriculum in only eight hours. This is Desire Map workshop concentrate. This intensive gives students a speedy, yet profound glimpse of the curriculum while incorporating yoga as the medium for embodying desire.


In this section you’ll learn how to integrate Desire Map curriculum and language into your existing coaching practice. The Desire Map coaching curriculum is a tool that you can incorporate into your existing coaching method as a valuable skill-set that will set your coaching apart from others. We’ve included coaching outlines you can start using today. This chapter also includes tips and advice from other coaches who are already using The Desire Map with clients.

As a Facilitator, you will be listed in TWO online directories, both of which live on DanielleLaPorte.com, with a reach of hundreds of thousands of people.You will be searchable by name, location, and/or specialty keywords based on your specialties (ex. dance, meditation, aromatherapy, creativity, etc.). If you are a coach or a yoga teacher, people will also be able to filter facilitators by those two focuses.

The Event Directory


The second directory you’ll be featured in is the Event Directory. Here, you’ll be able to create individual directory listings for each one of your Desire Map offerings, including in-person workshops, virtual workshops, and ongoing offerings such as yoga classes and one-on-one coaching packages.
