200-Hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training

w/ Heather Healey, Wendy Epps and Guest teachers

january - May 2020

What's the BEST way to Improve your Practice?

Are there poses that seem out of reach?

Are you interested in trying meditation?

Do you want to form new lifelong relationships?

Find out how much you can learn by joining our Yoga Teacher Training program -- It doesn't matter if you are interested in teaching or not. There's so much more to it than learning how to teach a yoga class! The only thing we require is an interest to dig deeper into your yoga practice. 

Join Senior teachers Heather Healey, RYT 500 & E-RYT 200, and Wendy Epps, E-RYT 200, on a journey to deepen your yoga practice and learn to teach through our 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training. This intensive training will provide the knowledge and experience to take your own practice to the next level (whether you’re interested in teaching or not!). The training will cover:

  • Smart, safe, creative, fun sequencing

  • Finding your unique teaching voice and style

  • Pose study & alignment

  • Yoga anatomy & physiology

  • Meditation & breathwork

  • Yoga history & philosophy

This training will provide you with a solid foundation in pose alignment, creative sequencing, and finding your authentic voice as a teacher.  You will learn not only how to teach a yoga class, but how to create a safe and powerful yoga experience for your students.  With daily teaching practice and attention to developing the skills of an effective teacher, you will leave the training equipped with all of the tools you need to teach and to feel confident doing so.   


Throughout the training we will enhance our understanding of ancient yoga teachings and how they apply to our modern world via the study of yoga texts, TED talks, and a variety of other sources. Through these avenues, you will have the opportunity to delve into yoga philosophy in a way that will deepen and enhance your own yoga practice as well as your yoga teaching.  Be prepared to leave the training feeling empowered both on and off the mat.

INSTRUCTORS

Heather Healey, E-RYT 200, RYT 500

Heather was first drawn to yoga as a workout, to fill a void after retiring from competition as an elite rower. It soon became a way to maintain balance through the rigors of her PhD research. She completed her 200-hour training with Sean and Karen Conley of Amazing Yoga in Pittsburgh, PA in 2009, with a foundation in Power Vinyasa Yoga and later that year opened the first Mighty Yoga studio in Ithaca, NY. She has been teaching for over 8 years. Following a desire to dig more deeply into the teachings of yoga, Heather completed an advanced training for her 500-hour certification with Liz Heffernan and Soma Yoga Institute. Through her classes and studios, Heather works to create the space and opportunity for more people to practice yoga and experience its life-transforming effects. Heather’s teaching brings out the practical, yet powerful lessons of yoga on and off the mat.

 

Wendy Epps, E-RYT 200

Wendy has a deep personal interest in healthful living and total body wellness. Over the past 11 years yoga has naturally become an important part of Wendy’s life, and her yoga practice has evolved through the Vinyasa and Power Yoga styles. Wendy also has scientific interest in the body at the cellular level, which motivated her to study bioorganic chemistry for several years and ultimately earn a doctoral degree in 2011. She is especially intrigued by the science of the emotional body, as well as how the body heals. Wendy’s desire to share the mind-body practice of yoga with others inspired her to complete the South Boston Yoga Teacher Training course in 2012. She is honored to have studied with Checka Antifonario, Michelle Brenes, David Vendetti, Todd Skoglund, Kate Graham, and many other wonderful mentors. As an instructor, she focuses on smart and creative sequencing to challenge the mind, and proper alignment to heal the body.

Guest Instructor: Carrie Tyler, E-RYT 500 & Anatomist (among much more!)

We are so excited to have Carrie Tyler joining us to teach the anatomy curriculum for our training!  Hailing from the Boston-area, she is a wealth of knowledge and has been working in the holistic community for many years. Here's what she says about her anatomy trainings:

Let me start by saying this IS NOT your normal, boring Anatomy & Physiology training. This is a super engaging curriculum that uses all levels of learning (i.e kinesthetic, auditory, reading/writing, visual) to etch information permanently into your cranium. Lectures are balanced with postural therapy techniques, dynamic movement exercises, hands on work, and palpation. If space permits, group work with Anatomy in Clay® models is included. 


Testimonials from recent graduates

I feel that I really have a yoga practice now – yoga is such a big part of my life. I feel like this course has made me more mindful of what is healthy for me. I am a much more confident teacher and I’m very excited to share this with more people. If you said we were taking a 3-month break and then doing this all over again – I would sign up! 

- Cindy, 2018 Yoga Teacher Training Graduate

It’s been so nice to connect through a shared learning experience with this group. I am so impressed with Heather and Wendy’s feedback. You strike a balance of being both honest and supportive. I learned so much about alignment. Daily practice and meditation has become part of my routine that has allowed me to be more present and compassionate.  

- Amanda, 2018 Yoga Teacher Training Graduate

 

The training has helped me learn to be more forgiving of myself and to listen to my body. I feel a much stronger connection to myself. My practice is my own now – and I love that. I really enjoyed Heather & Wendy’s demeanors. I like how things were explained and how they fostered an environment where it was safe to share.  

- Haley, 2018 Yoga Teacher Training Graduate

 

As we progressed through the training, I felt calmer and more centered in all parts of my life. I feel like I really got in touch with myself.  I loved learning about anatomy and alignment in the poses. It has helped me get deeper into my yoga practice and poses, as well as become more confident and safe in them. 

- Katie B., 2018 Yoga Teacher Training Graduate

 

Passionate instructors and a thoughtful, well-balanced curriculum made this a transformative experience. Throughout the training, my inner dialog changed. My self-judgements and frustrations over striving for perfectionism slowly faded as a new feeling of softness and self-respect grew. I started to ask myself what I needed in any given moment and, more surprisingly, I started to actually listen. In addition to learning more about asanas and the human body, the philosophy of yoga, and uncovering a teacher in myself, I found strength, patience, and kindness toward myself for which I am beyond grateful. 

-Emeline, 2018 Yoga Teacher Training Graduate

 

This training has been one of the most profound experiences in my life! It extends so much beyond “teaching” or the “poses” and reached every part of my life. I feel stronger, lighter, and more easeful when I am practicing. It also brought me new confidence in public speaking at work. 

- Katie S., 2018 Yoga Teacher Training Graduate
