“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!”
Shayla - 2017 Spring Teacher Training

This 7-week Yoga Alliance-certified program is led by Twist Yoga teachers Ali Matt (500-EYRT) and Jessica Baker (200-EYRT) and includes a special guest teacher each week. These teachers are unique to this training and are experts in their fields. They will share their deep knowledge with you to deepen your training and set you up for success upon graduation

What you’ll get:

  • Tuition includes the 7-week course with the associated 150 page manual - unique to Twist Yoga.

  • Your FREE Unlimited Class Membership at the studio starts as soon as you are paid in full and runs until end of May 2019 (first 8 registered and paid in full)!

  • All graduates are invited to teach one free community class at Twist Yoga to gain exposure and confidence. You didn’t speed off on two wheels the first time you got on a bike — you had training wheels to learn the mechanics. In the same way, we provide teachers the support to practice and receive feedback in a supportive environment before heading off on their own.

  • The history and philosophy of yoga

  • Anatomy and physiology

  • The subtle body (chakras and energy channels)

  • Asana breakdowns

  • How to create an inspired and purposeful sequenced class for any level

  • Ayurvedic practices and doshas

  • Pranayama breathing techniques

  • Finding your voice

And much more!

It was completely in line with the Yoga Alliance guidelines. The instructors are highly qualified and professional. They all deeply care about the quality of training and try to accommodate the needs of diverse trainees. I also appreciate the warm support we received from the Twist Yoga community. I look forward to being a part of this wonderful community of yogis.”

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.

““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.”
