Power Yoga’s
8-Week Online Teacher Training

Aloha everyone!

All true wellness and health come from a calm and peaceful mind. And I’m excited to offer my unique Online Teacher Training grounded in this belief. This course is designed to empower you and provide an environment where your own unique understanding and perspective of yoga emerge out of direct experience and dialogue and you become confident in sharing it.

Ultimately, I want you to emerge with a sense of your own style grounded by the life experiences that have informed you as well as your own consistent practice.

In this course, I share everything I’ve learned in my 41 years of yoga practice and 35 years of teaching yoga.

With over 41 years of yoga experience and 32 years as a teacher, I knows what it feels like to be in your shoes.

As the inventor of Power Yoga and the creator of Poweryoga.com, I have incorporated my methodology and experience into a practice that is anything but generic. While yoga is frequently instructed by teachers of varying backgrounds, methods, and experiences, the practice you teach is part of YOUR journey. Don’t wait to let me help you begin that journey!
