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!
Gina Cerbone, 200 RYT, began her yogic journey in 2010 as she developed a strong connection to her Vinyasa practice which led her to complete a teacher training program with Delia Quigley and Denise Kay in July 2013.
For Gina, the Vinyasa quality of “moving meditation,” coupled with her daily seated meditation, allows her to center herself when her world feels out of balance and lacking in stillness. Gina feels that Yoga has opened her eyes to see the person within, who she really is. Her practice helped her to find herself at a time when she felt lost. Gina believes that human nature is an important aspect of teaching yoga and a path to gain insight into others as well as one’s self by giving and receiving (sharing) the gift of yoga. In addition to yoga, Gina has an extensive interest in things that make the world culturally diverse and intrinsically reachable for the individual. She has a big love for the arts; dancing, photography and painting; often examining the deeper meaning behind brush strokes, the artist and the culture or history that arose from a certain piece.
Gina has studied with a couple of our great teachers: Doug Swensen and Kino MacGregor. In the future she plans to advance her practice and delve deeper into the eight limbs of yoga. Gina holds her BA in Fine Arts, from Saint Joseph’s University and she has recently completed her Masters in Applied Clinical Nutrition (Cum Laude) at New York Chiropractic College.
Training is modularized and trainees can take up to 2 years to complete it.
Missed modules can be made up at other locations.
14 flex hours are built into the schedule to be missed if necessary upon approval.

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.
