Grow your own practice

There is no better way to learn about the practice you love than through a yoga teacher training. It’s the best way to learn about healthy alignment in the poses for your body. You’ll also learn how yoga principles can support your life off the mat. Many individuals take a teacher training without intention to ever teach. Now is a wonderful time to engage in your own transformation.  By participating in our yoga teacher training you are committing to healing and caring for your whole self!

Connect with your confident, authentic self

There is a distinction between being a good yoga technician and being a great yoga teacher. A great yoga teacher is able to show up fully present, aware, and ready for their students every time they teach. In our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training we help you learn the skills to teach a fluidly conducted, well sequenced vinyasa yoga class. In addition, we will help you unearth any blocks to finding your TRUE teacher within, help you find your voice, and help you cultivate more presence with those you interact with or teach. Learning to teach yoga is learning how to be more present. This skill serves you not only in teaching yoga but in all areas of life!

As our society drives toward healthier living there is a thriving opportunity for meaningful and purpose driven work.  Therefore, our yoga  teacher training also teaches how to build your teaching platform so that you can share what you love. But please know, you don’t need to want to teach yoga to take yoga teacher training. You simply need an interest in yoga and desire to learn and grow!

“I believe that a yoga teacher training (like the one I experienced at HYL) should be added to the list of must-do things…!”

In 2017, under the direction of three of HYL’s founding sisters, LeeMarie received her 200-hour certification, and has taught hundreds of hours of all-levels hatha yoga ever since. With a concentration on teaching in corporate environments and to varied populations, LeeMarie is experienced in bringing the foundational benefits of yoga outside of the studio and into the world. She infuses honest humor and accessible-but-buildable sequences into her yoga teaching approach, ensuring there’s something for everybody in her classes, from brand new beginners to yogis with advanced practices.
