Joan Hyman leads the School of Yoga and has collaborated with Cristina Holopainen who has been an amazing business mentor to many yoga teachers and wellness professional over the years. Joan has practiced Ashtanga yoga and the Iyengar method for well-over twenty years, and is passionate about spreading the benefits of this ancient practice and wants yoga teachers to find their authentic path.
Joan has diligently selected a line up of teachers who have their own unique style of teaching and are leaders in the world of yoga including Annie Carpenter, Marla Apt and Jeanne Heileman.
Joan’s intention is to create a level of excellence that helps to raise the bar and maintain a high level of quality in the yoga world. She believes this will create a more authentic place for students to grow their paths as teachers and for their own practice to continue to evolve.
In this modern day age, a professional perspective is needed to thrive as both a yoga teacher and entrepreneur. Cristina Holopainen will be leading the business of yoga modules and offering mentorships along with Joan. Johanna JP Cox will be leading the perinatal modules from her teachings and experience with Birthlight Yoga.
You will have the flexibility to learn at your own pace and choose courses that you would like to specialize in and that work best for your schedule. For the remainder of 2020, you can take as much of it online and we will ensure continuity of the training as things shift and as requirements change.
