What former students say about the training

One of the best things I have ever done for myself was take the Now Yoga Teacher Training.  It was life changing in many ways.  Not only did I get incredible training from globally recognized thought leaders in the industry, but I became a part of their alumni community that has also served as an integral part of my growth and learning.  Joe Miller, Edward Jones, and Frank Mauro's integrated teaching approach to yoga training, mindful leadership, and anatomy was a transformational and enlightening YTT experience that I would do all over again. It has developed, supported and empowered my practice, life, and career in many ways. Joe DiGiovanni

The 200 hour Teacher Training Course with Now Yoga was a fun, engaging experience that helped me to better understand the philosophy and concepts within my practice, as well as the mechanics of the postures. Each instructor brings a high level of experience and knowledge while also creating an open and friendly culture that welcomes questions, discussion and offers balanced feedback. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to teach yoga or expand their knowledge base of their own practice. Stephanie Deputy

I would enthusiastically recommend the now:yoga teacher training to anyone interested in deepening their yoga practice or embarking on a teaching career. I started off unsure if I wanted to teach, but after completing the 200 hour course I felt encouraged and confident to pass on the gift of yoga to others and have been teaching ever since. I liked the one (intense!) weekend per month format because it meant minimal time away from my family plus I had a whole month to process and absorb the material. I was excited to go to every session and amazed at how much information we covered on the physical practice, the philosophical and spiritual roots of yoga, and the nuts and bolts of teaching. My notebook is full and will serve me for many years. Together Edward, Frank and Joe brought abundant experience, sensitivity, humor and warmth to the training while creating a fun, non-judgmental space to explore and experiment. Edward, Frank and Joe have a profoundly serious dedication to the craft of teaching yoga and I am forever grateful for their time with us. Jessica Reed

It was clear from the beginning of the training that Joe, Frank and Edward uphold a very strong philosophy on teaching. Every single one brought his own unique element to the training, whether that be a deep understanding of the anatomical structure of the body, how to incorporate meditation into your personal practice, or making the Buddhist teachings behind yoga accessible and understandable. Now Yoga teacher training has been very well received around the world, not only because of the professional  standards the teachers uphold, but also because the training is so well-rounded. I went into this training not comprehending  how one day I was going to be able to lead a class, but at the end of the training, I not only felt prepared and confident to teach, but I became a much more advanced practitioner. Because I went through Now Yoga’s teacher training, I know I have a strong foundation that I will be able to build upon in years to come. Alicia Muzzi



Edward Jones

Edward Jones felt the benefits of yoga immediately. His sister brought him to his first class in 2001 and he was hooked by a new way of relating to his body that was powerful, precise, and fun. The ongoing practice of getting to know himself brought Edward back to the mat day after day and eventually the notion of sharing this incredible system emerged. In 2005, Edward completed Om Yoga teacher training with Jennifer Brilliant and began teaching at Om the same month. An interest in dealing with anxiety and depression led him to study with Judith Laseter and become certified in restorative yoga. Edward realized that all of his favorite yoga teachers had a firm rooting in knowledge of the body, so in 2010, Edward took Leslie Kaminoff's year-long and rewarding yoga anatomy and anatomy & breath clinic. A deepening interest in Buddhist studies then led Edward to become a trained meditation teacher under the exceptional guidance of David Nichtern and Cyndi Lee. The privilege of being a teacher and teacher trainer at Om Yoga Center has been immensely satisfying. Edward is excited and grateful for the opportunity to embark on a new journey in the form of Now Yoga at the Shala.


Frank Mauro

Frank Mauro has been teaching yoga since 1996. He was on the teacher training staff at Om Yoga Center from 2004 until its closing in 2012. While on the teacher training staff, he specialized in teaching basics and was in charge of the “how to teach basics” portion of the trainings. Frank's sense of humor, ability to simplify complicated concepts and  attention to clarity have have been a staple in his beginner classes since 2001. He currently co-directs Now Yoga at the Shala.


Joe Miller

A yoga practitioner since the 1980s, Joe Miller completed teacher training at Om Yoga in 2000 and taught there for 12 years, 10 years as a teacher trainer. He has a master's degree in applied physiology from Columbia University, and specializes in teaching anatomy and physiology for yoga. Joe has practiced with numerous teachers over the years, including Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, and more recently Glenn Black. He has studied anatomy with Leslie Kaminoff, Amy Matthews, Tom Myers and Gil Hedley, and Sanskrit with Swami Prabuddhananda Saraswati. Joe is also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and an authorized teacher of Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement. He writes about yoga, anatomy, physiology and health for popular publications and websites, as well as his own blog:
