Whole Body Health

Edge Yoga Teacher Training® is committed to providing you a comprehensive knowledge base of yoga asanas (poses.) These asanas can be taught in an array of formats from the stillness of Hatha Yoga to the seamless flow of Vinyasa Yoga.

Learning Is Easy

By providing training in segments of three (snippets) much of the work is done for the instructor. This approach is the hallmark of our training program. It provides interchangeable snippets so that the instructor is not so dependent on class plans. We believe this makes for a more versatile instructor that can respond to the group class element with ease.


Yoga styles will include Gentle Yoga, Power Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Hatha Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Prenatal Yoga and Salutations. Emphasis will be hands on experience for the students, right from the first day of training and throughout the training.

We Love Our Members Too!

"I Took my first hot yoga class yesterday & everyone was so welcoming & wonderful. A warm & peaceful environment. Jodie is such a great instructor. Inspiring. Not only will I be back regularly, I highly recommend Essence of Life Yoga to anyone who wants to do something amazing for themselves. Thank you Jodie! Namaste."


"As someone who has a very active background it was difficult to adjust to some minor health concerns. I started EOL to regain my mental/emotional strength and focus on what I could do physically. It has significantly helped my daily perspective on life. It has given me an outlet to destress and feel success. I do have to contribute my new core strength I have because of EOL!! THANK YOU!"


"If you want to stick to an exercise program this is the place!! The instructor and staff are extremely welcoming and so sweet! Everyone (really everyone) that attends is just as amazing! I look forward to exercising - can't say I have EVER felt that way in the past! Just such a lovely and supportive environment."
