From the transformational 40 Days to Personal Revolution program to ACCESS 250-Hour and EMPOWER 300-HOUR teacher trainings, discover how Evolution Power Yoga (EPY) offers yoga students of every practice level opportunities to enliven their own evolution.

Stephanie Ellis

EPY teacher since 2016

Q: What do you feel makes EPY an engaging community for beginning yoga students?

A: Everyone at the studio is warm and welcoming; I know that’s what drew me in when I first started. I have also enjoyed the structure of programs such as our teacher trainings or upcoming 40 Days to a Personal Revolution program: You are able to learn the basics in a supportive environment. I’m even more excited now to be a part of our training programs and to lead the 40 Days program beginning this January.

Q: How can participants apply what they learn from teacher training to other areas of their lives?

A: A big part of teacher training (and one of the practices and techniques of Baptiste Yoga) is self-inquiry. I believe that when you have a better understanding of yourself — what makes you tick, what is important to you — you are able to live your life from a place of choice versus plodding along and responding to things as they come.

Q: What has been your experience serving as a teacher within the EPY community?

A: I have been fully supported and loved by this community. There are always opportunities to grow here, and I feel empowered every step of the way thanks to our amazing team and students.

Q: What do you believe makes the teacher training experience at EPY so impactful?

A: The training addresses so many other areas besides the skills needed to teach yoga, like personal inquiry and development. It asks people to step into their own responsibility, power and greatness, which can translate into all areas of participants’ lives.

Q: What would you say to someone who may be thinking about beginning a yoga practice and not sure where to start?

A: Just go to a class! Yoga simply asks you to come as you are; you don’t need to be flexible or strong or present because yoga will help you find those things within yourself. Try a class with no expectations for yourself

other than to be in the experience.
