200 Hr. Teacher Training
“Before beginning my 200-hour Alignment Yoga Teacher Training at Eugene Yoga, I believed the instruction would be exceptional because the teachers at Eugene Yoga are superior to any I’ve discovered in my 40+ years of practicing yoga. The advanced studies/teacher training program completely fulfilled my expectations and I couldn’t be happier with the abundant knowledge I acquired throughout this program. The breadth of topics covered including yoga philosophy, ethics, anatomy, body mechanics, asana, history, business, cueing, and much more were thoroughly and carefully presented and I’m amazed by the amount of material we were able to learn in 200 hours. I walked away with the books and resources I need to continue reading, learning, and growing into an experienced yoga teacher and more fully embrace yoga as a way of life. The connections I made with the teachers and other students are irreplaceable in building community and happily discovered their support did not end with graduation. I had no idea how profoundly my life would be changed before embarking on this incredible journey and feel truly proud to call myself a graduate of this outstanding program.”
“Julia listened skillfully during our private yoga session, then met me at a most needful body area with a simple technique, which I now use every time I practice yoga twists. She ‘heard’ my body.”
“First, Julia is a wonderful teacher; she puts her heart into Yoga. My understanding of body alignment, and my favorite – learning to push off with my back foot (as I did when I was much younger) – has given me a new ‘zip’ in my step and improved my balance. I appreciate using the golf ball for opening our foot ‘craters’ and balance. Having Julia as my Yoga teacher is very great!”
“During the final day of the 200 hour Alignment Yoga Teacher Training, Julia shared with her fellow graduates that she believes one of the gifts that she brings to yoga is that she helps to ground people into their body. I couldn’t agree more. After taking many yoga classes from various teachers over the years, I’ve found that not only do I experience feeling more grounded in my body, but I also leave feeling more joyful. Julia brings a fresh presence of peacefulness and curiosity about what others are experiencing in their body to each class. This helps the classes feel very interactive and facilitated for those present in that particular class. Beyond her comforting energy, she has a wealth of knowledge about the body, which helps to cultivate a greater understanding for whom she shares. Whether you’re new to yoga or have been practicing for years, if you’re interested in yoga and haven’t already shared space with her, taken one of her classes, or had a private session, I would highly, highly recommend it! ”
