WHAT MAKES THE EPIC YTT SO …. EPIC?!

  • Our EPIC YTT is created and led by Amie, Emma, & Shannon. Their shared knowledge, experience, and passion will support you and encourage you throughout the course of the training. Each teacher comes with a unique background and perspective to teaching, yet all three blend their talents to create a cohesive and comprehensive program. Trainees will have the opportunity to work more closely with the lead teachers both in and out of training hours as the YTT journey unfolds.
  • This progressive Vinyasa flow training is rooted in the classical traditions of Hatha and Ashtanga, blended and tailored for the modern day yogi.
  • This program includes a strong focus on anatomy and physiology. Trainees will learn how to apply the anatomical information into classes for creative and safe teaching. 
  • Intelligent Sequencing: Learn the art and science of designing and delivering a safe, dynamic class. Our program isn't about memorizing and reciting sequences. Instead an emphasis is placed on teaching principles for clearly instructing students bodies into alignment.
  • Trainees will have many opportunities to practice teaching and assisting classes. We give you the space and opportunity to find your own teaching style.
  • This program is community centered & celebrates the individual! Each person brings a unique set of skills, desires, and experiences to share with the training program. Our EPIC trainers encourage the growth that comes from group discussion and understanding. Trainees will connect deeply with one another and contribute to the development of each new teacher.
  • Unlimited yoga at EPIC during the program period is included in your tuition.
