Judi Murfin, E-RYT 200, R-YFMT 500

My initial 200 hour teacher training, RYT 200, was completed at Santosha Yoga in Portland, Oregon with dina Lang. She created a wonderful foundation for me as a yoga teacher. Along with my initial teacher training I have accumulated  more than 3,000 teaching hours. Therefore, I am qualified as an E-RYT 200. This last year I completed the Master’s Teacher Training program in Atlanta, Georgia with Michelle Thielen and Laura Burkhart at YogaFaith,  a Christ centered yoga school.  I earned the title of Registered Yoga Faith Master Teacher, R-YFMT 500. When going through YogaFaith I was able to keep true to my heart and Christian roots.

 

My Yoga for Scoliosis training was completed in Canada in 2016 with Elise Browning-Miller. Elise is a scoliosis student herself who personally discovered the benefits of a yoga practice for scoliosis. She trained directly under B.K.S. Iyengar, who sought to modify  postures to compensate for the curvature of a scoliotic spine. Those postures have been proven to help many students who suffer from scoliosis.  I am very blessed to have gleaned the wealth of experience from Elise. The training also required a 6 month practicum and grading process by Elise.    

All of the trainings and the experiences with many different students , have helped me tremendously to become an intuitive, compassionate and well rounded teacher. And of course, as a teacher I  will always be a student and continue to learn and grow in my practice.  

 

I am registered with Yoga Alliance and Christian Yoga Association.
