Putting the Right Foot Forward

Our Program Is Open to All. Whether You Are Looking to Deepen Your Personal Practice, Journey into Teaching, or Even Open a Studio.

Students come to Honor Yoga’s Teacher Training for different reasons, but they all leave with a deeper understanding of yoga and a discovery of their own inner teacher. It is a life enhancing and transformational experience.

Honor Yoga brings together a diverse group of teachers, each with a distinct yoga style and specialty. We divided the curriculum into a series of modules, which allows for focused hours spent on each topic and offers the trainee a flexible program. The teacher training environment is welcoming to all who want to explore their yoga practice more deeply, as well as those who are already on the path to becoming a yoga teacher. You will leave this foundational training transformed!

Diverse Teachers

Our Teachers are Professional, Knowledgeable, and Ready to Guide You on Your Path

Your yoga practice is a unique combination of who you are and the instructors you admire. Because each HY teacher brings years of expertise in a distinct yoga specialty, you’ll grow a well-rounded practice and find which styles suit your spirit.

Asana Lead: Julie Mellk

Julie Mellk is a 500- ERYT, and Honor Yoga’s Director of Teacher Training, leading over a dozen 200-hour and 300-hour Yoga Alliance accredited teacher trainings nationally. Finding refuge by sitting quietly each morning, unbeknownst to her, meditation was Julie’s first experience of yoga. The physical practice soon followed diving first into Ashtanga, then Jivamukti and YogaWorks, and Iyengar. The majority of her yoga studies with highly accomplished teachers, some responsible for bringing the practice from east to west- Sharon Gannon, Maty Ezraty, and Carrie Owerko.

Julie has been sought out to teach all over the world- NYC, Chicago, Savannah, DC, Annapolis, Mexico, Nicaragua, Turkey. She’s led NYC’s Bryant Park Summer Yoga program, serving nearly 1000 students/class and has been featured in New Living Magazine, sheknows.com and Time Out New York. Julie teaches with poignant clarity, sequencing artistry and encourages playful curiosity. But mostly, Julie’s passion is to make the practice relevant. She’s dedicated to fostering a classroom environment that allows each student to be fully seen as the important, unique individual they truly are, and lead them to understand that they have what it takes, that anything is possible.

Read What Our Alumni Have to Say About Our Program!

Comprehensive, insightful, and life-changing, the Honor Yoga 200-HR Yoga Teacher Training program was a phenomenal education. It was easy to trust our lead asana instructor. Even when reviewing familiar poses, I found myself constantly surprised by revelations about my own body and I deepened my practice. I feel fully prepared to instruct others with safe transitions, intelligent sequencing, and clear cueing. I deeply appreciate that the curriculum went beyond just asana, into other topics like philosophy, meditation, pranayama, ayurveda, mantras, mudras, and Sanskrit. Shout out to the hilarious and infectious! We built lasting connections, both to the Honor Yoga studio network for future teaching opportunities, and also deep personal friendships within our student community. All in all, this was an inspiring and transformative experience, and earns my highest recommendation!
- Mark Macapagal
It was a truly life changing experience training with Honor Yoga. I'm thrilled and excited for the knowledge I gained over this training. I loved each and every single module taught; especially the anatomy and the trauma sensitive modules. We are trained and equipped with tools that help us understand and be compassionate with a student's body and mind. I highly recommend Honor Yoga training program for anyone aspiring to be a yoga teacher. Namaste!
- Shravani Gopu, ★★★★★ on Yoga Alliance
Words won't be enough to express the gratitude for this teacher training and everything its brought to my life. Other than wanting to become a yoga teacher and strengthen my physical practice, I have largely expanded my knowledge of yoga philosophy, anatomy, history of yoga pranayama and meditation. I am so thankful for all of the teachers at this studio who inspire me every single day through their teachings and especially the teacher trainees who entered this wonderful yoga journey with me. Because of this training, I feel more content and happy with myself, my past and am excited for what is to come in my future. Honor Yoga North Brunswick will forever hold a special place in my fourth chakra.
- Emily Amador
Honor Yoga is a great place to practice, and the teacher training was more than I expected. I signed up with the intentions of deepening my practice and expanding my knowledge of yoga beyond asanas. About halfway through I realized that I wanted to share all this new information with any and everybody I encountered. I caught the teaching bug and have not looked back.
- Atiyah Carter-Robinson, ★★★★★ on Yoga Alliance
This school has given me all the tools to prepare me and succeed as a yoga teacher with my share of hard work and dedication. The teachers are very knowledgable and approachable. They guide you in a very constructive way. I am extremely fortunate to have done my teacher training here.
