WHY I'M BREAKING

UP WITH YOGA

ALLIANCE

(And Why You Might Too)

I’ve been seeing a lot more of these articles lately, which I believe are a great thing. This is the exact reason why I broke up with Yoga Alliance and why out of good conscience I can not let any of my YTT’s graduates get sucked into a big business that doesn’t do anything for their members or hold any studios accountable for their YTT and continuing education programs. It was also nice to see in the 100’s of comments on this article that it hit home for a lot of people around the world and the consensus was basically the same, it’s time to break up with Yoga Alliance.

Gwyn Heusser, 500 Hour E-YT, 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. I cannot wait to share with you the transformative experience of Yoga Teacher Training!” ~ Gwyn

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 Programs: 

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.

50 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training 2022

Yin teacher training is for those who are interested in teaching Yin yoga as well as for those who want to learn how to deeply relax and rejuvenate on their own. Yin yoga is a slow, meditative practice that is designed to target our connective tissue and free any blocked or stagnant energy in the body. We use longer hold times and plenty of props to deeply relax the physical body while also releasing any blockages or tension in the more subtle aspects of ourselves. This practice will leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed and ready to experience the world. This teacher training will teach you about the history and philosophy of Yin yoga, anatomy and physiology of the physical body, how the energy is viewed in yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine, meditation and, of course, how to put all of it together to create a relaxing and interesting Yin class for yourself or your future students. We will practice Yin postures as well as meditation and pranayama each class in order to better familiarize ourselves with these practices so that we can have a better understanding of the students possible experience. 

Lavender Koi Yoga’s 50 Hour Yin Teacher Training will be guided by:

Dan Smith, 200hr. E-YT,

Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Kids Yoga Instructor and Certified PkFit Instructor

My name is Dan Smith, I am a certified yoga teacher and personal trainer. Before yoga, I was a route salesman that worked way too much. I had the feeling I was doing a whole lot of nothing. I was depressed and constantly anxious, my mind was constantly worried and I felt there was no way fix it. I was also suffering from chronic back pain and

desperately searching for relief. That’s when I found yoga. 

I started my own yoga practice at home and my body started getting stronger and the pain I thought that would never go away, started to lessen. Just through practicing the postures I noticed that I was feeling better about life. I felt happy and confident. My “problems” weren't as overwhelming anymore and I could better handle my emotions. The benefits that I found inspired me to go to yoga teacher training so I could pass this gift on too many more people. ~ Dan
