Some experiences last a lifetime


Whether you want to dive deeper into your understanding of yoga for personal growth, or you plan to forge a new career or life purpose, the RYS-200 foundation program at Heartwood Yoga Institute is designed to open your heart and mind to the healing practice of yoga with comprehensive study of the 8 limbs. Sanctioned by Yoga Alliance and recognized worldwide, this program offers both a classical and contemporary understanding of yoga, setting the stage for an authentic yoga practice you can readily share as it enhances your own life. Graduates will become an RYT-200 upon  joining Yoga Alliance. 

Heartwood offers RYS-200 yoga instructor  certification courses in different formats, providing ample opportunity for students to choose a schedule and time format that works best with their busy life. As a yoga Institute rather than a studio, our deep involvement in yoga teacher training means we not only have vast experience, but our training programs are highly developed and the primary focus of our school and purpose. With a multitude of programs offered each year, students can easily make up any work missed and we offer online review of portions of the training for students who feel those studies need revisiting after graduation. With a beautiful and intimate resort facility, a staff of experienced E-RYT-500 instructors, complimentary training in specialized areas (aerial yoga, Reiki, Chair yoga), and convenient finance options, Heartwood offers unparalleled value.
