HOLLY PURDY

E-RYT 500

Master of Education

I’m honored to have the privilege and position of co-leading another Yoga Teacher Training at LOVE. I’ve been practicing for almost twenty years, and teaching for about ten. Along this journey, yoga has become my life; I see yoga and think about yoga everywhere! In yoga becoming my life practice, I strive to continually defer to the teachings in order to live a genuine, authentic, spiritual, connected, and healthy life.

 

Partaking in Yoga Teacher Training at any level is really like taking a giant step into the capital J Journey of yoga. While I began yoga at the physical level (as many of us do), over time and after taking many trainings, I found myself drawn more to the philosophical and spiritual roots of yoga. I’ve spent most of my upper level training in the Bhakti tradition, which is the yoga of devotion, or yoga of the heart. In this tradition, we use mantra, music, and mythology to elevate consciousness and expand into joy, presence, and wellbeing. I’ve learned from some really incredible Bhakti teachers, and I aspire to honor them and the traditions of yoga in all of my teachings.

 

I aim to share my gifts and the many gifts of yoga with my students during our upcoming teacher training. Trainings are a powerful container to unlock and open into a radically new way of being, or to simply improve our relationship with ourselves and others. Either way, trainings are a catalyst for transformation. I greatly look forward to sharing in the transformation with you. <3

RN, E-RYT 500, YAECP, Reiki I & II

Yoga holds a special place in my heart, a cherished gift I've received over 15 years. It's always been a calling to share this gift with others. My intention for this training is to impart what I've learned during my 15-year yoga journey and share my experience, knowledge, and love of the practice with you! For me, yoga serves as a solid foundation that I can always rely on, regardless of what's happening in my life. The practices of yoga are there to support and ground me, and I wish that for everyone. I'm dedicated to offering a rich and holistic introduction to yoga, hoping to shed a more expansive light on the entirety of yoga so that people walk away with a broader understanding of what yoga truly is. I’ll be sharing my love of the practices of Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Hands-on Assisting, Teaching Techniques and much more.

 

My deepest aspiration is that participants leave with a profound and expanded understanding of themselves and yoga's true nature and wisdom.

 

I look forward to embarking on this yoga journey with you…so buckle up buttercup we are in for a journey of a lifetime!

 

Aho,

Suzy

E-RYT 500, YACEP, AHC

Forever a student, it is such a privilege to participate in the upcoming teacher training at Love Yoga. Consider this your opportunity to initiate great change in your life and in the lives of those around you. If you’ve been to my class, you know Ayurveda is a guiding light in my life! A beacon, really. This ancient system of medicine seeks to prevent dis-ease (disease) in the body. Historically, Ayurveda was introduced before yoga or simultaneously with the yoga practice. I look forward to sharing Ayurveda (and assisting in other modules!) with you. My intention is to provide students with information and explorative options that allow them to cultivate peace in their own bodies, minds, and hearts, and to prevent dis-ease. May we live harmoniously and find svastha (health). Om!

- Anna 

CHRISSY HARTS

E-RYT 500

Yoga teacher training is so rich and deep, I encourage anyone seeking a greater understanding of yoga to make time to train (even if teaching yoga classes isn’t the end goal.) I’ve been on the yoga path for over twenty years - I’ve made lots of mistakes and learned A LOT along the way. In the time we spend together I hope to share with you sparks of my passion and understanding of yoga to ignite the teacher within each participant. I create a playful and engaging space for teachers-in-training to learn and explore the “why” behind the posture-work we do on the mat, where we marry the movement of the body with the intention of the mind and learn to make medicine.
