“The training I received at Heart of the Village Yoga surpassed all my expectations. There was a wonderful balance and ease with the style of teaching used. I would highly recommend it to anyone searching for more than just a physical Asana training course. The Teachers were some of the best I have had the pleasure to know and work with. There is a true community feeling and the studio feels like a second home.” – Lisa Brand, E-RYT 500


“The 300 hour yoga Teacher Training experience  at Heart of the Village Yoga is like adding a tube and mirrors to a small collection of favorite beads and trinkets. Each bead and trinket represents lessons learned from my 200 hour training such as anatomy, Sutra study and sequencing. The tube, the community, studio, environment, is a comfortable, solid, safe space to look over my knickknacks. Teachers, colleagues, guests, written assignments and discussions are all  mirrors that encouraged reflection, magnification and expansion. The program supports and promotes going beyond the What and When. Understanding the Why and How enables us to create a limitless kaleidoscope of action, intention, knowledge and devotion.

Jo and Bob understand how people learn best and have developed a  professional, balanced and inclusive program. I highly recommend bringing in your own baubles and witness the transformation to an ever changing, beautiful practice.” – Alexandra Langstaff, RYT 500


“It is my absolute pleasure to recommend Heart of the Village Yoga for your teacher training whether you are a 200 hour candidate, a 300 hour candidate or combined, like me. I came to know Jo Kirsch and Bob Speck as the most wonderful teaching team. They are both incredibly hard working and their combined knowledge inspired everyone at both levels to intertwine learning, mentor each other, teach with confidence and share deeply in yoga philosophy and asana.  The TT program is outstanding for anyone at any level, that is interested in delving deeper into the art and science of yoga with like minded  wonderful people.” – Barbara Lowes, RYT 500, Reiki Master
