The Vision

what sets us apart

United Yoga Teacher training was founded to bridge the gap between the art and science of the yoga experience. We created a training rooted in the essence of healthy mindful movement. Our unique teaching style integrates finding and strengthening your voice by drawing from your intuition, authentic life story, as well as continued self discovery through sources of knowledge for growth. We have connected this philosophy with an emphasis on anatomy and the strategies to develop movement patterns in sustaining a lifelong practice. This training is designed to educate, encourage and empower the heart, mind and body.  


The Process

what you will experience

Each individual will complete this program with an enriched understanding and appreciation for this ancient practice, its history and philosophy, a deeper awareness and appreciation to the complexity of human movement and have advanced knowledge to correct alignment and minimize the risk of overuse injury.

Testimonials

I have been seriously interested in becoming a yoga teacher for the past year now and I actually almost went through another teacher training in January of this year, however, at the last minute, something in my gut told me it wasn’t right. I’m so glad I went with my gut because a few months later, Michelle told me that United Yoga was going to be doing their first teacher training; I was ecstatic and it was an obvious “yes”. There truly is something different about this training that I feel so many other students in yoga teacher trainings dont get to experience. Marina, Michelle and Heather are intentional about providing a extraordinarily well rounded education for their students. We dive into yoga history and philosophy, anatomy and physiology, teaching techniques, finding your voice and so much more. Marina, Michelle and Heather have poured their hearts into this training and this love and care is felt in every moment we meet. They are brilliant, bold, and constantly available to their students. United Yoga’s yoga teacher training has been such an incredibly transformative experience for me. Its done so much more than just enhanced my yoga practice, it has provided a space to cultivate a community of likeminded individuals that encourage, challenge, and embrace each other whole heartedly. I’ve become more intentional in my relationships, my practice, and my everyday life. Learning to allow my yoga practice to transcend the class room has been one of the most valuable things I’ve taken from this experience; from striving to be more honest with myself and others, to seeking to pursue peace and gratitude in any situation, to building my faith and relationship with my Creator, I have see every aspect of my life improve and become enriched. After coming from a season of uncertainty and confusion this program has been one of the greatest gifts. I encourage anyone who is interested in becoming a teacher or in investing in their practice, to say “yes” to improving your life and others lives by choose United Yoga’s Yoga Teacher Training.”

The United Yoga YTT (Yoga Teacher Training) is so much more than I imagined it would be. Before I began the teacher training I had been practicing yoga on and off for about ten years, experiencing a plethora of teachers and styles of yoga. This teacher training has greatly deepened my understanding of the practice, both physically and spiritually. Its a wonderful blend of left and right brain information, the spiritual and the scientific. As a yoga teacher I want to be able to offer my students a deeply enriching experience that is also keeping them safe and healthy. Having Heather’s expertise as a Dr of Physical Therapy is a HUGE bonus. It’s very helpful to be able to ask her specific questions that apply to the body’s biomechanics and how that relates to yoga. The training hasn’t been easy (nothing worthwhile is), but we have received so much positive feedback that we are gaining confidence as teachers after every weekend together. Michelle, Marina and Heather have pushed us to teach, teach teach which can feel very uncomfortable at times, but with their guidance we have all begun to develop our own unique style as we become more comfortable with leading students through a practice. Overall I have had an amazing experience and I am so glad that I have joined the YTT at United Yoga Studio. It’s a professional experience with a personal touch.
