She began her first formal teacher training at the South West Institute of Healing Arts in Phoenix with Jim Keegan and Mary Bruce in 2005 and completed her 200 hour RYT yoga certification through Inner Power Yoga with R.R. Shakti in Colorado a few years later. In addition to these trainings Yvonne has studied ParaYoga with Rod Stryker, Restorative Yoga with Julia Clarke, and leadership and development courses all over the country.
Yvonne is a passionate instructor who’s motto is “Yoga for EVERY Body”. It is her goal to make yoga available for everyone so she offers many different class styles and workshops at Yoga Off Broadway and developed Eagle YogaFest from this mission. Yvonne believes the more people we get to their mats the more we are creating a conscious and connected community. Yvonne’s favorite part of teaching yoga is getting to know the students and giving back to the community. She is a teacher for the Girl PowHER yoga program, director for the Yoga in the Park program offered in the summer to raise money for local charities, and ambassador for lululemon.
