Instructors

The Yoga Mat method taught by our instructors connects purposeful movements with conscious breath, and our educational approach improves body awareness and promotes individual choice.  We present yoga in a way that can help your class think independently, so they can incorporate what you teach them into their life beyond the mat.  We will share with you how to use a physical practice as an entry point to teaching calm, steady, and undisturbed students. The Yoga Mat team has deconstructed the subtle aspects of what makes a knowledgeable and successful yoga teacher – and we want nothing more than to share these aspects with you.
