Yoga Teacher Training 



exciting news!I have spent a lot of time in redeveloping my yoga teacher training program. I’ve taken all the feedback from the past years and developed a training more suitable for your schedule!

I will be introducing a partial online/partial in person yoga school.

The online portion will make it extremely convenient for you to go at your own pace and study at home in your pajamas. Saving you more time to focus on what is important.

I’ve taken everyone’s favorite part about the trainings, the retreats, and turned them into our in person portion. Former students of the yoga teacher training have said that the retreats were the best part. And, they are! It gives you time away to experience yoga in a whole new light. The relaxed atmosphere makes it easier to understand the material.

While I’m still working out the details, I'm projecting a schedule that has:

-One full week intensive retreat

-3 weekend intensive retreats

-Zoom gatherings (online video chat)

-Private YouTube videos for studying at your own pace. Re watch as many times as you like!

Once everything is in place, more info on start dates will be shared.

Info On My Training: 

My training is based heavily in creativity and unique instruction. It places you and your personality at the forefront of where you will be teaching from. Developing your own personal talents and skills, rather than giving out a cookie cutter recipe of how to teach. Bringing you to a place of growth in your yoga journey.

My Credentials:

-Bachelors degree in Kinesiology. This is super special for the training because you actually get to learn how the body functions and moves which will in turn help you to guide a physically and energetically effective class. 
In this training, you will not only become certified , but you will also become YOU.

-500 Hour Yoga Teaching Certificate

-Teaching since 2002 with over 10,000 hours of teaching

-Paddle Board Yoga Certified

-Allen Force Certification



This training is geared toward developing
Your true self.
Your voice.
