About True FLOW Yoga Teacher Training
True FLOW Yoga teacher training was created to fill the need for a return to the ancient tradition of transmitting physical, mental, and spiritual yogic knowledge from teacher to student in an intimate setting. Yoga training, like so many other things in our society today, has become a corporate enterprise, a big and popular money-making business. This often means that authenticity and individualized attention are traded for more students and more profit. Because True Flow accepts only a few students at one time (10 students maximum), each student is viewed and guided on a personal, one-on-one basis.
Teaching philosophy & approach
"True teachers use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross; then, having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own.” ~ Nikos Kazantzakis
True FLOW Yoga was founded under the assumption that there is more than one right answer. Therefore, various styles of yoga including but not limited to Vinyasa Flow, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Restorative, and Yin will be discussed and explored. Students will be encouraged to see Truth in all its forms and to practice and teach in the way that most genuinely moves them.
In this non-dogmatic training, a broad overview of yoga’s many layers will be revealed. Students will be encouraged to pick and choose only that which rings true from this tremendous wealth of knowledge. Finally, they will use this wisdom to make their yoga practice and teaching their own.
Delve deeper into your practice
Although this training is ideal for someone who wishes to teach yoga, it is not solely for that purpose. Many people who have been practicing yoga for a while and see countless benefits from their practice inevitably desire to delve deeper into their understanding of yoga. They realize that there is a limit to how much they can learn from a led group yoga class. Reading about yoga and talking to others about it is a great start, but it is no replacement for the traditional individual teacher-student relationship. There is no college course or community class where you will learn all that you learn in a yoga teacher training program. It will change your life and the way that you view your place in it.
Tuition is only $2999 if you register early. (Tuition will increase by $200 if you miss the Early Registration deadline.) A $499 deposit is all that is required to hold your space and it goes towards your tuition. We offer monthly payment plans and do not charge any interest. We accept cash, check, money order, and credit card. Contact us for more information.

"Brynn's Teacher Training Program is absolutely amazing. The atmosphere is extremely welcoming and comfortable. Brynn's knowledge of all things yoga is truly admirable. She is great with questions, teaching, poses, sequencing, and the overall attitude of a great yoga instructor. She really makes everyone feel excited to get to class and bummed to leave. I know that from this I have seen several positive changes both in my practice and day to day life, and feel qualified to teach a class." - Kelsey b
"It is hard to put such a personal and transformational journey into words. I had never taken a class with Brynn before starting her teacher training. It was a leap of faith. But after reading other reviews and speaking with someone who had taken the training, I knew I was on the right path. I could feel it in my bones. As it turned out, I could not have picked a better program! The training I received at True Flow Yoga completely exceeded my expectations, which is no easy task! It was the perfect fusion of educational, spiritual and purposeful instruction. Brynn guides with precision and laughter, without ever making you feel self conscious. She is quite relatable even though she is a very advanced yogini. She is able to gain your respect as a teacher, but her warmth and lack of judgment make you feel like you are in the company of a friend. I believe Brynn to be an old soul that is as authentic, knowledgable and passionate about yoga as anyone I've ever studied under. She truly has a gift and a commanding, yet gentle, presence as a teacher. To know her is to love her. She is an absolute light in this world.
I was also fortunate to share the space with a beautiful group of like minded teacher trainees that I hope will be lifelong friends.
At a minimum, you will deepen your asana practice and learn teaching techniques. But, if you are open to it, you will learn something much greater that will apply on and off your mat for a very long time to come. I could not have asked for more from a 200 hour TT program or the guidance I received. I feel privileged to have taken part in such a thorough and far-reaching experience. Without a doubt, I am forever changed, forever grateful." Jessica L.
"Absolutely, positively, unquestionably, the most phenomenal experience I have been blessed enough to take part in!" - Brittany a.
"Brynn is not only well-versed in the practice and philosophy of yoga but also has a natural gift in being able to lead and guide, while bringing out the best in people. This is what makes True Flow Yoga Teacher Training so amazing. Brynn is a warm and thoughtful perfectionist, and I mean "perfectionist" in the best possible way! The entire program is really well thought out and paced just right, easing you into the program gently as you arrive with "first-day jitters". Before you know it, you're halfway through and 100 asanas into the program! I loved how everyone in our class progressed in their personal practice, wherever it was that they started. I know I felt much stronger physically and richer emotionally by the end of the program. And now teaching others is a natural desire that I feel ready to do. I can't wait for workshops and retreats with Brynn in the future!
I am so glad I signed up for True Flow Yoga Teacher Training and here are the reasons why: A teacher training program is only as good as its teacher and Brynn is by far the best I've experienced. Smaller class size allows a lot of personal interaction and a deeper experience. You learn yoga poses the right way, correcting and modifying poses in yourself and your classmates for proper alignment. You go beyond poses and are exposed to the philosophy of yoga and how it can apply to you. You get solid practice developing sequences and teaching full sessions before the program is over, unlike some larger class programs where you barely practice teaching a full session. The learning environment is productive, down-to-earth, and encouraging. I have nothing but great things to say about Brynn and True Flow Yoga Teacher Training...highly recommended!" - Jeanne L.
