I never had any intention of teaching yoga.. 

When I enrolled in a teacher training course in 2005 I was three years into a rapidly-deepening yoga obsession. I was practicing at the studio, at home, even at the gym. I was buying books left and right to learn more about postures, anatomy, philosophy, and the history of yoga. I was driving to Chicago to attend workshops with national and international teachers. But I didn’t have any intention of teaching. 

So, why teacher training? 

It was a desire to follow the path toward deeper understandings, wider vistas, and clearer insights. Even then I knew that the training of a teacher was more than just learning what to say and how to say it, it was about taking my own practice to new levels and about really understanding how much I didn’t know. This last insight is one I’ve never let go of. 

Now, somehow, I am celebrating 10 years of training yoga teachers. It has for many years been one of the joys of my life to welcome new cohorts into the fold, guide them through the practice I love, and inspire them to share it with others. Our graduates are studio owners, professional teachers, weekend warriors, specialists. We stay in touch with our graduates from the local community to Washington state, Texas, Nevada, California, Colorado, and on and on. 

From our studio to coast to coast we hear one thing again and again:
