YOGA ALLIANCE 200 HOUR TEACHER TRAINING
"My experience completing YTT 200 hour summer intensive is hard to describe in words. Soulful...transformational...healing...are just a few that come to mind. Jamie and Lindsay created such a warm environment that allowed the group as a whole to share; explore, laugh and play comfortably and easefully, free from judgment in the group dynamic. For me, this training was much more than learning about the physical asana practice of yoga. It has opened my eyes to so much more; yoga as a way of living, being, and showing up in the world for myself and others. I'm forever grateful to Jamie and Lindsay, the group as a whole for the experience. Thank you, Jamie and Lindsay, for sharing the gift of yoga and for imparting all your knowledge, yogic wisdom and philosophy with us. I highly recommend this training for anyone who is interested in deepening their yoga practice as well as those who wish to embark on a journey of self-discovery. You deserve it!"

Here is what previous graduates have to say:
"Lindsay and Jamie's genuine, easy friendship provided a supportive backdrop to this intensive yoga training. They both offered valuable intuitive and experience-based feedback and knowledge. I laughed, I cried, I learned a lot about myself and my beautiful yoga cohorts. It expanded my joy and love of yoga. Thank you." - Judy Clark, 200-hour Intensive Graduate
"This program has literally changed my life in the most amazing way. I knew I would learn about yoga but I didn't realize I would learn so much about myself.....facilitated an environment full of support and love so we could all explore and blossom in our own unique ways. This has truly been a blessing." -Jocelyn, 200-hour Graduate
Yvonne’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training is exactly what I needed.
Yvonne is a great example of making yoga her lifestyle and philosophy, a yogi in the true sense of the word. The course is a journey of self- awareness, and awareness of others, nurturing skills that go beyond alignment, to seeing what the body needs to function well. As a teacher, she knows accurately when you need a little push to delve deeper and is also there when you need a hand up. The support in yoga as a business and the yoga of business is unprecedented in my experience. I highly recommend Yvonne Werkmann’s Yoga Teacher Training. - Laura
It's rare to meet someone as passionate about their work as Jamie is. When you're lucky enough to come across someone like her, you learn all you can. The way Jamie lights up when she describes the beauty in the movement of the body is contagious --- you can't help but get excited about it too. She is a true master of her craft.
Jamie never told me what to see or how to feel in teacher training but helped me to find the answers for myself. She pushed me to become the person I was capable of being, showed me the unique qualities that I can bring to teaching, and showed up for me when I couldn't show up for myself. Jamie demonstrated integrity, presence, and a wisdom far beyond her years. I am so fortunate to have trained under Jamie and am honoured to know her. - Kate
Because I decided to take this program (I wasn't even fully conscious that I wanted to, just remembered having two separate thoughts: "Yvonne sure has a COOL job!" and "I really need to start growing my competence in a new, but preferably related career direction so that when I need to decrease the number of massages that I give (as I age), I want to be able to concurrently increase equally or more rewarding paying work so that the shift is graceful and full of ease"). So I hadn't researched any other YTT200 programs when I jumped at the chance to participate in this one. However, I have no doubt that a similar program with a better, richer, more graceful fit for me simply doesn't exist. Period.
This program is so many prayers answered, I'm not even sure where to start discussing what it's meant to me. I was hoping to find deeply meaningful work that I could do at any age of life and that would help others feel good in their bodies, hearts and minds exactly as they are, right now. Quite a tall order, really. And yet with exquisite asana, Yvonne is offering me and my classmates exactly that. What's most amazing to me is that we are doing a phenomenal amount of personal and group work that demands we bring our very best and truest selves to the task. All the expert help and guidance we have required to find the huge amount of courage, commitment and discipline to complete this rich program has been abundantly offered to us by Yvonne. And she's done so with seemingly effortless effort on her part :) I get very emotional when I think 'how can I possibly thank her for what she's given me and my classmates?' and yet I know, of course, what the answer is. It is to share what we've been given by going out there and being truly outstanding yoga teachers who bring their brightest and truest selves to class and invite their students to do the same. Namaste. - Evelyn
Jamie's approach to teaching is refreshing. She doesn't tell you how to feel or what to think - she guides you to simply recognize what you feel or think and to be curious about it. I found her style to be a great fit for me and she helped me to 'be real' with myself. She creates a safe environment and makes her students feel comfortable right from day 1. My time spent with her during the 200 Hour Teacher Training Program has lit a new spark within me and I could not be more grateful. - Val
