Dive deeper into your practice, your authentic self, and learn how to share yoga with the world….

Flex Yoga’s 200 hour Yoga Alliance Accredited Yoga Teacher Training Program is designed to take you from your mat to the front of the yoga room confident with the skills needed to teach a carefully crafted Power Vinyasa Flow Yoga class. The Flex Yoga Teacher Training program emphasizes anatomy, alignment, assists and modifications for each of the carefully selected asanas in our Power Flow sequence. In addition, a portion of our training will be dedicated to unleashing the power and voice within each of our trainees so that each individual leaves the training ready to teach a specific yet personalized version of the Flex Yoga Power Flow sequence. We believe that each teacher leads best when they teach from a solid foundation that includes education in Pranayama, meditation, mantra, Yoga Philosophy, Ethics, Anatomy and Alignment yet allows each individual to teach from a place of authenticity and creativity. Finding your “inner voice” can be a life changing experience, and each member on our team of teachers is fully dedicated to leading each and every student down this road with careful guidance and support. Emily, Andy and Annie have each dedicated themselves to a yoga lifestyle which includes a consistent daily yoga practice and passionately believe in the transformative powers of yoga.

Whether you are interested in deepening your own personal practice, teaching part time or becoming a full time yoga instructor, you will leave this training with the skills needed to take your practice and/or your teaching to the next level.

Andy VanDeusen

Andy’s yoga journey began in college with a desire to improve his flexibility and core stability for other athletic activities. The journey became an important part of his life as he discovered and embraced additional benefits of the practice and the challenge inherent in yoga. In January 2015 he completed his 100 hour YTT through Amazing Yoga. After being introduced to the Jois-lineage Ashtanga Yoga system, Andy traveled to Mysore for the first three months of this year to study under Saraswathi Jois. He is extremely grateful for these opportunities and looks forward to continuing his practice and sharing what he has learned with others.
In addition to Ashtanga and Power Vinyasa Yoga, Andy is captivated by inversion, arm balance, hand balance, and the Acro or Partner Yoga practice.
