Get ready to embark upon the journey of a lifetime! We are thrilled to announce our next 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training beginning September 2019.

Directed by Ann Hunt, E-RYT 500 of Evolve Yoga & Wellness, with senior instructors Miriam Kindley and Lauri Bruce.

This teacher training offers a comprehensive, experiential and integrative curriculum in a non-authoritarian environment, encouraging students to discover their own unique style of teaching in a wide variety of settings. This training draws from a diversity of yoga styles but is rooted in the belief that taught skillfully and mindfully, yoga can be accessible to all regardless of age, shape or flexibility. We believe in building a strong working knowledge of posture alignment, modifications, benefits and contraindications and anatomy therefore seek to strengthen a student’s current practice of yoga, to develop personal empowerment and to enhance and build skills of communication, leadership, awareness, observation, practice and teaching. It is our intention to provide participants with the skills necessary to be an effective, safe and inspiring teacher. This program is also of tremendous value to those who are interested in deepening their own personal knowledge of and inquiry into the principles and practices of yoga.

"Signing up for yoga teacher training at Ease has been one of the best and far-reaching decisions of my life. It has challenged me to my core, brought me to tears, filled me with laughter and joy. Best of all, I got to know a wonderful group of people, who each in their own way made my life richer and brighter."
