Meet Yoganerd’s lead instructors. We have a combination of yoga experience, biomechanics education, tons of teaching experience, backgrounds in dance & movement therapy, and mental health that makes for a truly one of a kind training.
“This course blends yoga philosophy and body mechanics in a way that wholly captures the mind, body, and spirit of yoga practice. It focuses on all yoga styles, emphasizing that the teacher should practice and teach their yoga, rather than teaching the students one particular style. Most importantly, this course challenges students to always ask "the why" of yoga practice, encouraging students to be curious, inquisitive, and to never stop nerding-out over yoga.” -Jen
