*2015 Fall Yoga Teacher Training*  *Sept 26 - Oct 4*    *Limited to only 10 students*


An athletic and challenging flow style yoga based on Baptiste Power Yoga and Ashtanga Vinyasa infused with practical, therapeutic and function movement techniques of Yoga Tune Up® .  You don’t need to be perfect.  You don’t need to be bendy.  You don’t need experience.  You just need a willingness to move, sweat and breathe.  

“Meet yourself on your mat… you'll never know what you'll discover.  As you strengthen your body, you begin to strengthen your mind… become witness to the growth and transformation yoga will spark within you… breathe like never before to the edge of doubt and redefine your boundaries of limitations in mind, body, and spirit.”  ~Nikki Wong

OUR MISSION:  To transform, to heal, to love and to serve.  It is our deepest desire that as you travel along your unique life path, YIO can help you redefine your boundaries of limitations and envision limitless possibilities in mind, body and spirit.  We are here to serve as a catalyst for growth so that you may awaken your own inner Teacher and meet your highest Atman (Truest Self). We strive to empower people to connect to their intuition and be in control of where they want to take their practice because we believe yoga is a very personal journey, one of spiraling inwards.

"I’ve throughly enjoyed seeing how my practice flourished under the guidance of Nikki and all of the teachers she’s mentored.  She truly embodies what it means to practice on the mat and how yoga is also relevant in daily life.  What I admire most about Nikki is that she is not perfect and doesn’t claim to be and is one of the most humble students of this practice that I’ve met.  It’s very inspiring to witness the way she nurtures her teacher trainees and that as a student I get to be a part of their growth. I’m inspired to grow when I see my teachers grow.  YIO’s team of teachers has definitely guided me further to fall in love with my practice." ~Pam

"This teacher training exceeded all my expectations, I learned a ton, I'm still soaking it in, I had a blast, made great friends and my yoga practice is forever changed for the best.  It would take pages and pages to try to describe what Nikki is about, but suffice to say that her knowledge is beyond impressive.  She is a natural educator and makes everything interesting, fun, deep and meaningful, everything she says, does or requires has a purpose, there's no B.S., no wasted time or energy, she goes to the heart of everything and attacks with Olympic efficiency. We worked our tails off, we sweated buckets, we laughed, we cried, we got frustrated, we got over it, we kept on learning."    Lilia

"This style of yoga pushes you to places you never thought you were capable of going to. Classes are physically challenging, emotionally inspiring, and you know that you probably won't leave the class without getting in a good belly laugh or two. Nikki has played a huge part in my yoga journey, opening my eyes (and body) to the endless benefits of yoga on and off the mat."  ~Janna

"She is funny, knowledgable, and teaches with plenty of careful adjustments." ~Tina
