Yoga, Health & Wellness Education

All are Welcome!

I’ve always said if you want to learn something, learn how to teach it. Over the last 30 years, my online yoga teacher training has been empowering people to change the lives of others. As a result of this yoga certification training, students become Health & Wellness Educators and Life Coaches

Yoga is more than being a confident teacher of poses.  You will learn to integrate the whole philosophy of yoga, mindfulness, meditation and relaxation techniques. Guiding others with your teaching skills to live yoga both on and off the mat helps create a happy balanced life.

I wholeheartedly believe you deserve the freedom to create in your own way. I integrate different styles of yoga into the curriculum.  Whether it is chair yoga for corporations and seniors, restorative yoga, or vinyasa yoga you will have a firm understanding of the various styles. With variations for each pose, experience the comfort of teaching Yoga For Everyone, regardless of their age, shape, size, or physical ability.

Let me be your guide as you give yourself the gift of yoga.  Knowledge, enlightenment, union  – This is more than a course.  It is an experience!
