“I have already recommended several friends to take the Twist Yoga teacher training ... even if they do not wish to teach (they probably would after the training, hehe), the lovely humans at Twist make you feel empowered and ready to find yourself in the Yoga world!”

Meet Heidi, our Teacher Training Program Ambassador

I truly believe that yoga can provide all of us with a more fulfilling, healthier, happy life.

I am passionate about helping others understand the practice of yoga, on and, equally as important, off the mat and love being a part of such an accepting, loving and encouraging community.

Spending time with my husband and two kids, getting outside, reading, cooking and hosting are all some of my favorite things, and of course, staying active and practicing all things yoga.

I am ecstatic to be a part of the Twist Yoga Team and can’t wait to work with students, helping to introduce them to such an amazing Teacher Training Program that is so near and dear to my heart.

The first 8 people get FREE UNLIMITED YOGA at the studio until the end of TT when Teacher Training payment is made in full!

““Twist Yoga teacher training has taken me that much further on my yogic journey both as a student and in preparing me to be a teacher. All the teachers are passionate and compassionate, helping to create an intelligent, supportive, and fun environment.”
Colleen - 2016 Spring Teacher Training
“This program has transformed my life.
 It has forced me to reflect, challenged my mind and pushed me to my physical and emotional limits. I’ve come out stronger, enlightened and more grounded than ever before. 

I’ve made lifelong friends. More supportive, more uplifting, more genuine and happier than any group of women I’ve ever been a part of. I’m proud to have them in my corner. I’m excited to TEACH and to be a part of such a powerful community. 
Michelle - 2018 Spring Teacher Training
“If you’ve ever considered yoga teacher training, I highly recommend the program at Twist. I left their training with such a deep knowledge of the practice that will carry with me for the rest of my life. Twist has created a program that perfectly integrates alignment focused asana training with pranayama, meditation, and historical context. My training was a unique and fun learning experience with other like-minded practitioners who are now lifelong friends!”
Sarah - 2018 spring teacher training
“Twist Yoga has such a great 200 Hour teacher training program. They did their best squeezing in so much information in such a short period of time. Ali Matt is so knowledgeable and patient and she really took the time to break down each posture and explain valid reasons why a pose is held in a certain way. Jessica Baker rounded out the program with her many years of teaching experience. Jennifer Pahl, the studio owner, and fierce businesswoman gave us all the tools we need to have a successful teaching career. If they offered any additional training I would jump at the chance to be a part of it.”
