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!
After a sedentary childhood, Celeste discovered the joy of movement in dance in her mid twenties, finding the complexity of alignment and the meditative aspect of meshing movement to music fascinating. After multiple injuries and a surgery, Celeste tried yoga and never looked back. Celeste found in yoga layers of complexity in alignment and variations of poses, a meditative space in marrying movement with breath, the relaxation of seated meditation, the joy of a supportive yoga community, and the fun of trying new poses. Celeste teaches a flowing vinyasa class with an emphasis on alignment, working towards more complex poses in stages, and a sense of humor. knowledge, insight and enthusiasm for yoga with the students at Mansfield.
I was introduced to yoga about 20 years ago and without knowing much about it I just knew I wanted more of it. I came from a background as a makeup artist living a very fast paced lifestyle, yoga calmed me and took me down a few notches. When I began connecting what i learned on the mat to my daily life, I began exploring all styles of yoga and found myself enrolled in Teacher Training. It was love and first sight when i stepped into my first Iyengar class and feel blessed that it lead me to my teacher, guide and mentor, Christoper Mankowski, who i credit for the teacher i continue to become. I blend my passions into every class by incorporating Iyengar, Intelligent direction, and props. I have a creative approach when using props by setting students up to make simple poses seem more intense.
Whether you are just starting your practice or an advanced practitioner my goal is to make you laugh, learn, and leave with a sense of accomplishment.

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!

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!

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.

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.
