Faculty

Throughout training, there's the opportunity to learn from many different local teachers as well as those we bring in from other parts of the country. Many of those teachers are listed below.

 
  Sara Powers   As someone with a mind that never stopped, Sara was first intrigued by yoga because of the challenge to keep her mind quiet and focused while exploring movement of the body. She practiced on and off for years, never finding a studio that quite felt like home. In 2012, she discovered Yoga to the People while visiting New York. Immediately drawn to YTTP’s approach of yoga, she was thrilled when a Yoga to the People opened near her in Tempe, AZ. Sara is honored to have received her 200 hour certification from the first Teacher Training program at the Tempe studio and has since helped facilitate the subsequent trainings. She believes that the work we do on our mats reflects the work we do in other areas of our life.

  Audrey Lane   After writing yoga off as something her hippie parents did, Audrey rediscovered yoga in 2008 when a friend brought her to a class at the YttP Berkeley studio. She had no idea at the time that it would become an integral part of how she balanced the demands of graduate school. It quickly became one of her biggest passions. She spent years studying Vinyasa and Traditional Hot Yoga and has explored several other practices including Ashtanga, Forrest, and Kids yoga. She received her 200 hr certification at Yoga to the People in NYC in 2011 and has since managed multiple studios in the San Francisco Bay Area and NYC. She has also helped to facilitate multiple trainings, including contributing to founding the training program in Tempe.
