200-Hour teacher training

May - December 2019

Immersion encourages personal development and modalities are used to create an immersion experience. Our 200-hour Teacher Training has a strong focus on alignment-based sequencing using mindfulness as a guiding principle as an approach to teaching and self-growth. During training, students will experience asana practice, mindfulness and meditation, mantra, pranayama, and self-reflection as ways to delve deeper into the practice of yoga. This training is designed to encourage personal growth through study and connection of physical practice, philosophy of yoga, and spiritual practice. Our aim is to provide a strong foundation, steeped in tradition with an awareness of the present, that will support, sustain, and uphold the integrity of the yoga practice while allowing space for each student to experience personal growth that will aid in their teaching and their life.

Ellen and her dear friend, Sarah, opened BlueBird Yoga in 2011.  Since then, she's trained more than 100 people to teach yoga.  She is passionate about fostering inspirational, knowledgeable, and confident teachers who are able to share their unique voices with the world.  Ellen is a devoted student and practitioner of asana, meditation, and wellness.  Her personal mission is to share light, hope, and humor with those around her. 


Candace is a 500hr RYT with certifications in hatha yoga, children’s yoga, yogahour, prenatal yoga, and mindfulness. Candace’s teaching is informed by the knowledge, experience, and wisdom that over 20 years of teacher experience provides. She continues to teach children, educators, and yoga practitioners and those who want to teach yoga. As a student, on her mat and off, Candace delves deeper into self-growth, with a strong emphasis on mindfulness and meditation as a practice. Candace remains a student first, which she believes is vitally important to being a strong teacher.
