You Love Yoga. Imagine Taking Your Practice Deeper…

Blue Heron Wellness 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Starts October 2016

Are you looking to enrich your yoga practice or spread your wings into a new vocation surrounded by a community of like-minded people?  This 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training will get you there!  Designed with you in mind, this in-depth training has a life-friendly schedule, includes a weekend-long yoga retreat in the hills of West Virginia, offers complimentary yoga classes in the Blue Heron studios and has special pricing for early registration and for existing Blue Heron yoga students.  And unique to Blue Heron Wellness is a non-tradition specific approach to teaching asanas.  You will learn from teachers who are alignment-focused Hatha style instructors as well as those who come from vinyasa, yin, restorative and other styles and traditions of yoga.  This gives you a broad base from which to develop your own unique style of teaching.
