Joyflow Yoga Teacher Training Certification

AND Joyflow Coaching Mentorship

Joyflow Yoga 200 Hour Teacher Training has been accredited by the Yoga Alliance since 2001, certifying over 22 classes of teachers. The Joyflow training reflects Debi Lewis's 30+ year experience in a variety of styles and traditions. Her teaching style is playful, nurturing and generous. She strives to cultivate confidence and self-awareness in all those she mentors.


Along with all the usual requirements leading to competence in teaching yoga, our focus now is on coaching and self-development. We are all in rapidly changing and increasingly stressful times. We need more than competent yoga teachers; we need healthy mentors who can inspire and support others during these times. 


Thus this year, beginning January 1st, there will be two levels of training:


1. An Introductory 3 month course, as well as the full 10 month 200hr Certification training. This shorter course is a perfect introduction if you are considering Certification, or it can stand alone as life-enhancing and healing training. 

2. 10 Month Yoga Alliance Registered 200Hour Certification Training.
