200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training

by Aligned Flow®


Our 200-Hour YTT can be applied to teach Therapeutics/Restorative, Gentle, Vinyasa, and from heated flow classes from beginner level up to advanced level as your personal practice will allow. Aligned Flow® Yoga is an 8 limbed approach to yoga. The physical practice combines Iyengar inspired alignment with the heating, flowing-with-the-breath sequencing which comes from the Vinyasa style. The Aligned Flow® method uses clear alignment cues and Intelligent Sequencing as tools to rein in your senses and purposely direct your attention. This healing experience of being present with yourself offers lifelong insight and wisdom and will enable you to create and hold the space for others to do the same. The Aligned Flow® training is accredited through Yoga Alliance. Upon graduation you will be able to apply to become an registered yoga teacher (RYT).



School for Yoga and Somatics

by Aligned Flow®


This course was created around the feeling of “now what?” It’s a feeling we’ve all experienced at the end of a yoga teacher training. The 300-hour YTT is for those who want to do something about it. We have such a wonderful community around us. Ultimately, it’s community feedback that new and even seasoned teachers don’t receive once they are out in the world… unless, of course, they seek it out.

The Aligned Flow® School for Yoga and Somatics is centered around the teachers’ community group which meets once a month. In this group we talk about yoga ethics and lifestyle with added readings and practical assignments between each class. After each class one student/teacher will teach. Afterward she/he will hand out the sequence and share any resources they used, talk about their intent. Ultimately, the student/teacher will receive feedback from the group. The Aligned Flow® training is accredited through Yoga Alliance. Upon graduation you will be able to apply to become an registered yoga teacher (RYT).

She is blessed to be the owner of Prana Yoga Center, direct the Aligned Flow® 200 hour and 300 hour teacher training program, lead retreats in beautiful places, and to offer deep tissue mobility treatments, therapeutic and Thai massage to athletes including working with the NY Jets for 7 years.
