You Love Yoga. Imagine Taking Your Practice Deeper…

Blue Heron Wellness 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Starts October 2017
Whether you are seeking a new vocation as a yoga teacher, looking to enrich your personal yoga practice or wanting to cultivate new relationships surrounded by diverse and like-minded people, Blue Heron Wellness is here to mentor you. Our yoga teacher training program promotes and preserves the ancient wisdom and traditions of yoga while honoring and cultivating the individual journey of the modern yoga teacher. In a setting of loving respect, students are encouraged to build a personal practice, learn the skills of conducting a yoga class, and participate fully and authentically in the process of reaching the next level of their yoga journey.


Claudia Neuman, E-RYT 500, YACEP, MSW,
was born in Los Angeles and began her formal yoga training in 1984 at Yoga works in Santa Monica, California. In the course of her training at Yoga Works, she was able to study with and assist some of today's top teachers, (Rod Stryker, Eric Shiffman) as well as study with Pattabi Jois, (the creator of Astanga Yoga). In 1993, she was initiated into the ISHTA yoga system by Rod Stryker . While at USC completing a Masters degree in Social Work, she taught yoga to students and faculty alike. In 2005, she received certification in Anusara yoga from John Friend. In 2012, she began studying again with Yogarupa Rod Stryker in the Tantra tradition, completing several of the Para Yoga Master Training programs. Claudia's classes reflect her rich background of yoga experience as well as the love and dedication to her life-long practice of yoga. Look for Claudia's regular quarterly articles in Pathways Magazine. Try out one of her yoga classes at Blue Heron Wellness.
