Marcia Ramoutar

(she/her) Topic: The Bhagavad Gita My journey with 'Yoga' started at a young age when I was exposed to the Yamas and Niyamas and lessons from the Gita in the guise of life lessons and values. I came to the Asana side of Yoga later in life thinking I knew nothing about Yoga, turns out I was wrong! Just goes to show, it's never too late to start a Yoga journey.

Polly Weiss (TCTSY-F)

Polly Weiss (TCTSY-F)

(she/her) Topic: Trauma Informed Yoga I believe in the profound power of yoga and meditation to help support trauma recovery, and I’m deeply passionate about exploring the amazing transformation that can happen when we bring a contemplative and embodied approach to healing individual and collective trauma.

The teaching style presented in this YTT is weaving of 3 systems of study: Yoga (as described by Patanjali and other texts), Ayurveda (our elemental nature), and Tantra (tools that allow us to live our lives more skillfully). There is no on-size-fits-all Yoga practice. This training will give you the tools to discern how to best meet your students where they are.

Grace Millsap, Lead Teacher

What past YTT students are saying...

Grace is a truly special soul. As a teacher, she goes way deeper than the physical poses of yoga. She utilizes anatomy, psychology, and energy to create intuitive movements that you didn’t even know you needed. Grace’s teacher training provided me with so many tools not only to become an amazing yoga teacher, but also to find a more profound understanding of my own practice. She also takes time to honor the histories and cultures of yoga, and addresses the responsibilities of being a teacher. Regardless of whether you’re interested in teaching vinyasa, deep stretch, meditation, or nothing at all, you’ll leave grace’s training with many new ways to contribute to the world.

This Yoga Teacher Training completely exceeded my expectations, and it is not an exaggeration to say it change my life. I am beyond impressed with the amount of time, thought, and heart that went into carefully planning each element of the program. I learned so much for use both on and off the mat, and am excited and inspired to keep on I got to spend the summer with some of the coolest, kindest people I know. I wish I had done this years ago. 

Grace's teaching style is infectious, informed, and passionate! The training offered is a well rounded diverse teacher training with plenty of opportunity for student participation and discussion. I loved that we had multiple sessions on diversity, inclusion, and allyship in the Yoga space. Highly recommended!

I stepped into YTT to deepen my own practice and completed wanting to teach and having opportunities come forward as we finished. ... Inclusivity, the moon, the science and the ayruvedics along with Grace's energy had me at the first conversation. Even areas that I wasn't keen on, somehow, I found myself enjoying those aspects too. The depth of the training opened up so much knowledge and many more rabbit holes for me to explore. IT was fun. Our KULA - I feel so much LOVE when I say that came together supporting, laughing and hugging each other. ... Well worth the time and money investment. I cannot wait for the 300 hour.

It is my heart’s most sincere desire to make this training as accessible as possible. AND I also honor my guest teachers, and the energy (time, money, emotional) put into their area of expertise, combined with what it takes to present at the level of a teacher training. A Tiered Pricing Model operates from a place of trust, community, equity, and honesty.  I trust you to choose the best price that is appropriate for you. 


The current standard price for a 200-hour Yoga teacher training is about $3500 which automatically creates boundaries, and exclusion, for some. A Tiered Pricing Model creates opportunity for those who may not otherwise be able to join, while retaining the value of the training and teachers; thus challenging the industry’s standard and capitalistic norms. This model invites us to take inventory of our personal resources, and examine our personal intersectionality and levels of privilege. 


You can pay in one installment or on a payment plan (no fees), we can talk about a plan that feels spacious for you. Please take some time taking these factors into consideration and determine a payment that works for you.  

This determination was informed, and inspired, by the works of Alexis J. Cunningfolk of Worts and Cunning, Jasmine Hines of Amplify and Activate, and Michelle C. Johnson of Skill in Action.  This scale is made possible by the kindness of friends at Noda Yoga and Jillian Longsworth. 

Please know, that the following are suggestions for helping one choose the best investment for your unique financial situation.  If you are unsure of where you fit, or need someone to talk it out with, I’m here to listen, and to come to a solution that feels really good.
