Teacher training has not only brought me yoga, but it has brought me a close niche community, life long friends, and healing. This training has opened my heart and opened my mind, allowing me to find my truth. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone, even if you do not see teaching in your future! After teacher training, I am now an instructor at both Nourishing Storm and Inspiring Storm, as well as teach for a drug and alcohol recovery center. I absolutely love sharing this love and light with those around me!
I appreciated Nourishing Storm’s ability to adapt and think creatively, and safely, in order to ensure the training could continue during a pandemic. I completed the training with confidence and knowledge that will guide me as I continue to strengthen my practice and share it with others. Life changing!
Nourishing Storm’s yoga teaching training invokes the true nature of yoga. The instructors are genuine, knowledgeable, and trustworthy guides to this journey and honor the uniqueness each yogi brings to the course and community. The change and transformation experienced during this program was magical and unfathomable; best decision and experience of my life to date! Extremely grateful to Nourishing Storm and its members for holding space, offering this course, and being an inspiration in the yoga world!

About Your Lead Trainers
Kristin + Meg
Kristin & Meg met in 2009 working at a juice bar company. After only a few days of meeting they knew they would be always working together. In the summer of 2012 Kristin got her 200 hour Teacher Training after teaching as a Group Exercise teacher for 10 years and Meg followed shortly after at a different school. When Nourishing Storm got started in the fall of 2012 they started teaching together and within two short years they created the “Root to Rise” 200 hour Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training program taking all they studied and learned from teaching and created a course they are truly proud and honored to teach. Over 60 students have graduated from the Storm and we hope when the call is coming for you, you will join us to become an NS Yoga Teacher.
Teacher training at Nourishing Storm was life-changing to say the least. Not only did I meet some of my best friends through the deep connections made each weekend, but it set me up to open my own yoga studio! I loved that the training covered everything from the eight limbs of yoga to anatomy. I would recommend it to anyone looking to become a teacher or anyone looking to deepen their knowledge and understanding of yoga.
Yoga Teacher Training at Nourishing Storm was the biggest step forward in my adult life. It gave me confidence in my abilities, taught me how to love myself, and showed me I can truly succeed at anything I put my mind to. Not to mention, I gained a group of amazing best friends who I still talk to frequently that fully support me/I support.
I now teach yoga flow classes & meditations every week at NS! If you are unsure about whether it’s the right time to commit, I am positive you will never regret this opportunity & it will only help you grow.
One word – Inspiring. Taking yoga teacher training was a life-changing experience for me. It was one of the most incredible awakening of my spirit, my heart and my understanding of yoga. I loved learning and reading about ancient yogic texts, the foundations of asanas , yoga philosophy, Ayurvedic nutrition and so much more. This course not only taught me how to teach, but how to deepen my own practice and live my yoga. One of my favorite parts of the training was teaching as lead in class and then teaching community classes
Kristin is an inspiring teacher, and the staff at Nourishing Storm is wonderful, caring and helpful. After completing Yoga Teachers training I felt that I had been given a wonderful foundation to go out and teach live yoga. This program helped me find my voice.
