“You’re always one decision away from a totally different life.” ~ Anonymous

Our goal for this program is to educate individuals to become the best yoga teachers.

As a reputable, award-winning yoga studio we pride ourselves in our sacred study.  Therefore, we want to continue to uphold our values by only letting dedicated yoga instructors through our YTT Program. These graduates will be a representation of our school. Those interested in becoming an exceptional yoga teacher must come to one of our info sessions and give us an opportunity to get to know you before signing up for the program.

At Lavender Koi Yoga we take our trainings to a higher level of education. We want each student to step into their own and shine with purpose and truth. The only way to do that for a student preparing to enlighten the world is to teach you everything you need in order to be a well-rounded instructor. We will provide each trainee with knowledge and show you your strengths within, not to just be the best yoga teacher, but to be the best version of yourself. We will give you the confidence needed to excel right out of the gate and make Lavender Koi Yoga proud to call you our family.

Lavender Koi Yoga’s Teacher Training will be guided by:

Gwyn Heusser, 200hr. E-RYT Owner of Lavender Koi Yoga

“ From my first yoga class I knew I had to become a teacher. I instantly fell in love with the practice. It was another way for me to fulfill my life. Even though I already loved yoga I had no idea how much until I went through yoga teacher training. I can honestly say it was one of the best and most profound experiences of my life. I will never forget the talks, the growth, the bonding, the letting go, the healing, the surrendering and so much more. It truly evolved me, making me become more than I could have possibly imagined. I wish the same for anyone who goes through YTT. Jessica Gonzales and I had never met before our YTT that we did together many years ago. We have remained friends and now we cannot wait to share with you

the transformative experience of Yoga Teacher Training!” ~ Gwyn


During the 8-month program teacher trainees will have the opportunity to be schooled by Instructors who specialize in various subjects of yoga. Giving each TT a higher level of understanding

about the specific subject.

Teacher Training for those who don’t want to teach:

Teacher training is not just for those who want to teach. The program is for anyone who wants to immerse themselves in the practice of yoga. It is a great way to deepen your practice and make it a way of living rather than something you do once or twice a week. It will evolve a home practice as well as awakening an understanding of the self.


 Why Our Teacher Training Program: 

Lavender Koi Yoga opened its doors to transform lives by teaching those to realize their full potential on and off their mats and awakening the soul. We not only teach this way of life, we live it. Yoga is the pathway to liberation. Sharing this knowledge and then sending fully realized teachers out into the world to spread their mastery is our work. As an award-winning yoga studio we will teach nothing less than excellence.
