Illuminate Your Soul
200 Hour Teacher Training at Zeal Yoga
The journey begins September 7, 2018
Welcome to Zeal Yoga’s 200hr Teacher Training, Illuminate Your Soul, with Jessica Coyne RYT® 500 and Jen Suereth RYT® 500!
This 200hr Teacher Training is like nothing out there and will surpass any expectations you may have. With the 8 limbs of yoga as our road map, we go beyond the asanas and dive deep into your yoga practice on and off the mat. As a highly trained spiritual coach and yogi, Jessica leads students compassionately through a transformational journey inside themselves to reveal the truth of who they are using both yogic and modern day spiritual principles. We will explore patterns and misalignments that have been holding us back for years from expressing ourselves fully. This is EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING, meaning you will apply what you learn directly into your own life and yoga practice. This unique experience combined with the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training fundamentals laid out by the Yoga Alliance, empowers you to step into your purpose (whatever that may be) and share your gifts with the world from a place of compassion, confidence, and love.
“Teaching Teachers is what I am most passionate about. I love watching my students grow and evolve as yogis and as human beings. As a spiritual coach I marry much of the yoga philosophy with my own teachings bringing a well-rounded, compassionate experience to each training. The journey is one I know you will never forget.” ~ Jessica
“I love being a part of teacher training! Watching students shift physically and spiritually is so rewarding. We know that when they leave us, they are going to make a positive impact on the lives of everyone around them.” ~ Jen
This 200 Hour Teacher Training program provides you with the foundation to better understand the physical, philosophical and spiritual sides of yoga. It is a challenging program but will also be fun and richly rewarding. If you are ready to embrace your passion for yoga and make a difference in your life and in the world, APPLY TODAY!
You will get so much more than you ever could imagine!
“200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training at Zeal helped me become a full-time yoga teacher, but more importantly allowed me to grow as a person. During my 8 weeks of training I learned more about my own practice. I became aware of my own habits on & off the mat. I was able to start reprogramming my body, mind, and spirit to become more aligned with one another. I knew I wanted to become a yoga teacher, but I thought it would be an after work and weekend teaching setup. The first night of observing a yoga class, I knew I wanted and needed to teach full time. I decided to quit my 9-5 job that no longer served my higher self and become a full-time yoga teacher. I am currently teaching yoga full time thanks to my yoga teacher training experience at Zeal. Jessica and Jen facilitated moments of deep emotional & spiritual connection to your soul purpose. I connected with my soul purpose, which is to guide people through their own yoga journey. I am eternally grateful for Jessica, Jen, and my 5 other YTT sisters, who have my back and are my support system.” ~ Posey D. (graduate 200hr Yoga Teacher Training)

“When I signed up for the YTT at Zeal Yoga I didn’t know what to expect. I was worried about spending the money and time on something “unnecessary”. I wanted to learn and deepen my practice, but not necessarily become a yoga teacher. Nevertheless, something inside me was saying “Go for it!”, so I went for it and after the first weekend of training, I knew I was in the right place?” ~ Isa A. (graduate 200hr Yoga Teacher Training)
