Yoga Teacher Training 





Yoga and the Artist’s Way is a program to help you recover awaken and express your creativity. If this sounds good to you, will love this program!

It’s perfect for anyone who loves yoga and wants to unlock and free themselves to create fearlessly.

Yoga teachers, artists, entrepreneurs, creators dreamers and lovers, it’s time unite and share our most beautiful gifts with the world!🌈🌎

Here’s the details:

“The Artist’s Way” is a program developed by Julia Cameron to both reignite and super charge your creative powers. We us the book of the same title as our guide text.

The program meets twice a week: Tuesday nights for the 6pm Hot Vinyasa and then for Artists Way discussion and exercises from 7:15-8:15pm. Also Saturday we will do the 9:30 Hot Vinyasa and then for the Artist Way work from 11am-12pm. We begin Tues 4/13 and conclude Tuesday 6/29.

The Artist’s way consists of two liberating core disciplines. Discipline 1 is “The Morning Pages” every day. The Morning Pages are a free writing exercise of tremendous power. Discipline 2 is a weekly “Artist’s date” This is where you take your inner artist/child out for a date–meaning do something out of the box and fun/engaging that your intuition tells you to do.

There will be many other exercises that will help you banish the doubts and inhibitions that stop you from sharing your gifts. We’ll work on these as a community and shine together!

This program is not limited in who can participate. Anyone who wants to be more creative and in touch with the divine spark within them is welcome! It will so be good to cross pollinate with other creatives of all kinds!

It is donation based. We really want a good group so this will offered on the pay what you can model. We suggest donation of $600-$1500 for the entire program. (If someone is really strapped, we can work it out. Also, we won’t stop anyone from contributing more either 😉)

Jason Hulshof

For Jason, every yoga practice is a journey toward the heart; an attempt to uncover our deepest and most beautiful self. Guided by this belief, Jason left the security of a corporate job to found HeartYoga. With over 18 years of teaching experience, Jason wakes up each day with a burning desire to share his passion with others. Intense, yet compassionate, his style is aimed at yogis seeking love, strength, clarity, and joy.

Lejla Mujić

To Lejla, yoga is personal. It is a grounding and liberating practice that gives the practitioner an insight to their truest self.

She believes that we all have gifts that can change the world that can be unlocked through yoga.

Being a busy college student and an active creative person on a mission; yoga is how she ties everything together and stays grounded. She is continuously moved and transformed by the benefits her own personal practice and wants to share the same gift with the world.

Sean Durkin

Community is what drives Sean. Meeting new people and taking in diverse perspectives motivate him to ascend. Bringing a unique outlook, along with direction from his personal practice, Sean strives to use this experience to inspire others.

Kate Swazee

Yoga provided the resilience and courage necessary for Kate to shatter the limiting beliefs she held about herself. By exploring the instinctual desire to move freely and making challenge a conscious effort in the practice, yoga took Kate to a new realm of freedom in both body and mind. It’s her desire to get you there too.

Eva Skillings

As a former classical ballet dancer, Eva was first drawn to yoga for the physical movement. After discovering how healing it can be both physically and mentally, she found an internal strength and freedom through her practice. The growth that she sees and experiences daily inspires her to help others see the light in going somewhere unknown and discovering something new about themselves.

Brent Dare


Brent has been an enthusiastic yoga practitioner for 3 years, all the while believing that yoga is not the answer, but simply one key to a doorway. A doorway that leads to clarity, liberty, and genuine peace.

Brent is an adventurous fellow who includes yoga to help in other endeavors such as climbing, snowboarding, and quests yet to be determined.

It only takes a few degrees to change a ship’s final destination.


Each day on your mat is a beautiful opportunity to pour your heart into your practice whether it is your first day in yoga or your 5,000th practice. Although our classes can be physically demanding, HeartYoga is a safe space to be as you are. All of our classes are breathing classes first; everything else is secondary. All are welcome!

Follow the Yogi

Set in a calm, quiet room, Follow the Yogi is a series of powerful, ancient postures that support strength and vibrancy within.  This is a chance to practice along with your teacher and create a communal yoga spirit.  If you seek to begin each day with wonder, join us for this hot class.  Keep in mind instruction is minimal and this class is not appropriate for first-time yoga students.

Hot Vinyasa

Hot Vinyasa is an invigorating class of flowing postures to inspiring, upbeat music.  If you are looking to go beyond the ordinary and light your fire, this class is for you!  You will get HOT!

Deep Vinyasa

Deep Vinyasa is a slower sequence that encourages moving inward. Through feeling postures with the eyes closed, we explore the healing connection between mind and body.  This is a warm/hot class.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a meditative class where postures are held for 5-10 minutes in a warm room. This creates a profound release of the body’s connective tissue—like deep calming bodywork.  It’s a wonderful practice for those seeking peace and inner quiet.

Meditation Period

For those who wish to learn to meditate or deepen their current practice.  The teacher begins the hour with some simple instructions and may offer more guidance throughout the hour depending on the students’ level of experience.  Students should bring their own meditation cushion as props are very limited.  This is free class open to the community. 

Ashtanga Vinyasa Short-Form

The Short-Form is an adaptation of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in a hot room.  In this class you have time to breath into postures – we often hold them for 5 breaths. This develops an intuitive understanding of how your body can embrace these ancient shapes.

Community Yoga

This class open to the community offered at no charge, and are taught by our teachers in training. Come support their growth and build your practice!

The class format may changed based on the what format the trainee is working with, but it will always be a chance to get out of your head, move into your body and find greater balance/wholeness.

Donations appreciated and accepted after class, give whatever your heart calls you to give–financial or otherwise.

Deepen Your Practice


Yoga is the art of making connections and if you’ve felt your practice connect you more deeply to yourself and others, our teacher training program is for you. In it you have the opportunity to devote the time and energy necessary to bring about deep personal change. Students finish the training more loving, more present, more vibrant, and more able to share the gifts of their practice with others.

It is first and foremost a program of personal development. This is accomplished through 5 daily disciplines:

  • A regular meditation practice
  • A regular posture practice
  • Mindful eating
  • Gratitude journal
  • Acts of Kindness

These disciplines form the driving force of your training. However, they are just the beginning. Through lecture, discussion, reading and experiential work you gain an understanding of yoga’s origins, the key elements of its theory and philosophy, and how it works to bring about transformation. You also learn and practice the skills to teach yoga as well. We use this as a tool for you to deepen your relationship with yourself and your ability to make connections with others.

Some students choose to become teachers in the community after the training (we are a Yoga Alliance registered school), but our ultimate aim in sharing the art of teaching is that all our students become better listeners, more truthful communicators and more powerful human beings. This happens whether or not you ever teach an official yoga class. If this sounds good to you, here are the next opportunities to join us:

There absolutely couldn’t be a better time for a yoga teacher to expand their capacity to make meaningful, loving connections. Our 300 hour online YTT will deepen your relationship with yourself, your students and your universe. Join us!

Begin Your Teaching Journey!
Spring YTT 4/11-6/27/21

Perhaps the most powerful way to make your yoga practice sweeter and deeper is to learn to share it with others. If you love yoga, you will love teacher training and the gifts it awakens within you!

  • The dates, days and times are as follows:  4/11-6/27/21
  • We meet Mondays & Wednesday 6pm-9pm and Sunday 8am-4pm. 
  • Training hours also include two additional one hour meditations per week. Available times 6am, 8am and 4:30pm CST on various days each week.
  • All meetings on Zoom.

Whether you want to be an official yoga teacher or not, everyone comes out of the training more able to shine!

For existing teachers, anyone who takes YTT a second time feels so much strength and a positive momentum in their lives!

If you already teach, you will hone skills and awaken new personal power. If you want to be a teacher, it will give you the confidence to start. If you are looking to deepen your practice, you will explore yourself on another level.

There is nothing like the learning community that unfolds in a YTT!

Going through this process again will unlock the teacher within you!

Also if you did your teacher training in another tradition, you will open new doors in your practice, knowledge and teaching.

Tuition: $995 for graduates of all previous 200-hour YTTs.  This includes unlimited yoga with HeartYoga for the duration of the training.

Click the Register button below if you are ready to take the next step. We will set up a time to meet over Zoom to discuss the program in depth.



Hello again HeartYoga community,
After further consideration of the most recent data on the coronavirus and its ability to spread while an individual remains asymptomatic, we have changed our view and will be shutting down effective immediately and plan to remain closed until further notice.

HeartYoga is just too small a place for us to not come into close contact with one another. Even with a real effort to be hygienic, it is possible someone could unwittingly be infected and pass on the virus to other teachers or students, and they in turn could do the same outside the studio.

Even with all the tremendous benefits an in-person yoga practice provides, we can’t take this risk.

In the meantime we will suspend all auto-pay memberships, and once we know the exact duration of the suspension, we will extend any package expiration dates to reflect that lost time. If you have questions about how this will effect your membership simply email us.

Also keep your eyes peeled for online content to keep both your meditation and practice going. We will be sharing it via our website, social media and email. In case you missed it in our last email here is a link to me teaching a short form ashtanga class: It is a great home practice.

We appreciate your understanding and support during these times and still will be working to help you emerge from this crisis with your health and happiness intact.

Much love to you all,
Jason Hulshof
HeartYoga Founder
