About Our Training

We place a strong emphasis on teaching how to build a safe and creative sequence that meets students at their starting point. We instruct on how to prepare the body for deeper and more advanced postures.
A yoga practice should always be adapted to the individual needs of the student. We encourage our trainees to see their students as individuals who arrive with various goals, levels of fitness, and life-experiences, and part of our inquiry will include postural assessment and discussions of how to help people with injuries, or with special needs such as seniors, trauma sensitive and prenatal clients.

We believe that yoga is a life-long journey of self-discovery and service. We place a high value on the wisdom and teachings of yogic philosophy to encourage our students to learn more about themselves and to find out who they truly are under all life’s layers.

Each of us has a special gift to share and this training emphasizes the individuality that is part of the human experience. Whether you are wanting to become a yoga teacher, or you are on a lifelong quest for self-knowledge, our goal is to bring an awareness of the transformational power of yoga through breath, asana, and commitment to practice.

You will come away from our 200hr Yoga Teacher Training Program as a Yoga Alliance certified instructor and also as a stronger, wiser, freer and more aware version of your true self.

Zohra Campbell D.C

500 E-RYT

Zohra is passionate about helping and encouraging people to unwind and alleviate tight, painful, and congested areas in their bodies. Drawing on her yoga training in styles from Iyengar, Anusara, and Forrest yoga, with her strong focus on anatomy, clinical chiropractic experience, and spinal rehabilitation make the benefits of yoga accessible to every student. Working with Zohra, either in a yoga session or as a client, will help you overcome restrictions in your physical body- fascia, posture, muscular imbalances and in your mind- your thoughts, your habits. Through a career of teaching yoga and doing body work for more than 20 years, Zohra feels more excited every day about helping people find and release the patterns and fears that hold them back-whether physical or emotional.

Michelle

I like to teach trauma- sensitive yoga. I completed my 200RYT here at the Indigo Yoga Teacher Training. After completing my training here at Indigo, I have put my focus on acquiring more training behind trauma-sensitive. I am excited to contribute my knowledge and experience in these fields to the 2019 Yoga Teacher Training.

Kristel

I find yoga healing and meditative. It creates space to be open and to breathe, emotionally as well as physically. I teach a Hatha – breath focused – beginning flow style with much emphasis on alignment/posture, often holding the poses for several breath cycles.

I was fortunate to attend Zohra and Meg’s first RYT2oo Teacher Training in 2016, and since, yoga has become my most valued skillful means to relieve my pain or anxiety. This is my wish for all my students! Although I am still relatively a novice on my yoga adventure, I bring knowledge and understanding from my massage/anatomy training (LMT #11433-since 2004) and personal experience of living in an abundant body with chronic pain.

Linda

I took my first yoga class almost 30 years ago and have not traveled far from the mat since.  I’ve been teaching for almost 20 years after finishing my yoga teacher training in Asheville, North Carolina.  I currently teach a Yin class at indigo and find that Yin blends beautifully with my interest in mindful awakening.  Yin works the less elastic connective tissues which allows us to hold poses 4 minutes or more.  Being relatively still for many minutes encourages us to focus on the breath and small body changes. This is being in the moment. A Yin practice is a beautiful compliment to a more movement-based Yang practice.

Emily D

I practice yoga so that I can move through life feeling less cramped and bound up, not only in my body, but also my heart and mind. I teach yoga because I believe this space and freedom is available to everyone, and that we all deserve to live with more compassion and ease in our lives

Mikki

An Oregon yoga and SUP yoga teacher and creator of Yoga + Beer pairings, Mikki Trowbridge aspires to both inform and inspire. She is known for her anatomically informed and soulfully inspired yoga classes that promise to be a little nerdy, but always fun, and flowing (often a little sweaty). Her style creates space for yogis to be challenged and to grow their practice, but also to find ease, confidence, laughter and yogi friends. And as an inversion and arm balance addict herself, you can always expect to spend some part of class with Mikki at least considering the idea of going upside down.

Mikki has been teaching in Salem, Oregon for over 8 years with studio classes at Indigo Wellness Center and Yoga Studio, along with private classes at Oregon State Hospital and a variety of local businesses and organizations. She also hosts regular Yoga + Beer events at Oregon breweries and offers StandUp Paddle Board Yoga classes in Pacific City, Oregon during the summer months. Mikki has her 200 hour YogaWorks certification and a 500 hour certification from YoYoYogi. She has studied intensively with Annie Carpenter’s Smart Flow and Tiffany Cruikshank’s Yoga Medicine and is working towards a 500 hour certification with both programs.

Meg

 “I have been studying the yoga sutras in the tradition of
T. Krishnamacharya and T.KV. Desikachar even before becoming a yoga teacher. The sutras are a guide to improving every aspect of our lives, and I’m thrilled to share this ancient wisdom.
I currently teach chair yoga to the cognitively and physically impaired. I will provide IYTT students insight into teaching these populations, and info on how to use chairs in studio classes.”

 “The success of Yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships.” – T.K.V. Desikachar

Teaching yoga is a path of self-discovery, shared inspiration and dedication. We want to share this live changing experience with you. As our program is instructed by a Chiropractor/500 E-RYT, we have a very unique a powerful perspective to share. The knowledge modern science has taught about movement meets the deep understandings of yoga philosophy.

In this program, we want you to know more that what a pose should look like. We help you learn and analyze the differences between each student that walks through the door. Everyone has a unique anatomical structure and knowing how to help each person work with their own bodies is a crucial portion of being the teacher guiding the students through a yoga flow. But this program doesn’t just stop at extensive anatomy education. Yoga is more than just the asana (yoga pose) practice. Yoga has eight more limbs to be discovered and our enthusiastic instructors find so much joy in sharing what is beyond that. From breathing exercises to yogic philosophy, our training will answer your questions and get you started on a deeper journey of understanding the chatter of the mind and how we can calm them to find the beautiful cadence of peace within ourselves.

  • Learn how to practice svadyaya (self-study) and build self-awareness both mentally and physically.
  • Develop a consistent study of the physical portion of yoga (Asana, pranayama and meditation)
