In my opinion, teacher training is the best way available to deepen your practice and to learn what it means to be a yogi. The transformation of your life can start right now, you can learn how to find acceptance and grace, and experience your unbound potential.
Peter Ferko began practicing yoga more than 20 years ago at Alan Finger’s YogaWorks in Los Angeles. He studied there with Rod Stryker and Patricia Townsend. He studied meditation with Yogananda’s Self Realization Fellowship where he learned Kriya Yoga techniques. He sampled Iyengar and Ashtanga styles before landing back with Alan upon moving to New York in 1999. After decades of practice, he obtained the Yoga Alliance 500-Hour teaching certification from Be Yoga’s training program and now teaches both students and teacher trainees. Peter’s approach to yoga involves tuning out the voices that tell us what we can’t do physically and why we’re not “there yet” and tuning in to the inner yoga. We are perfect yogis as we practice the yoga that’s perfect for us. In addition to his yoga pursuits, Peter is a multi-media artist and brings creativity, imagery, and a sense of humor to his teaching. “Asana and pranayama are the ways to balance physical and subtle energy, meditation is a chance to fill with understanding, and life full of energy and understanding is just plain better.”

I’ve come to think that yoga is all about relationship, and the beauty of teacher training is that it gives you time to make meaningful connections with teachers, fellow trainees, and yourself – all while diving into the deeper dimensions of yoga.
Kelly Eudailey began studying yoga more than a decade ago in Richmond, Virginia, as a complement to her dance training. After moving to New York in 2001, Kelly had the good fortune to practice at Be Yoga under the guidance of Beverley Murphy, Alan Finger, and Jean Koerner. She completed her 500-Hour teacher training in the ISHTA Yoga lineage, and has also studied extensively with Leslie Kaminoff at the Breathing Project. Kelly’s style is inspired by a deep respect of anatomy, a playful attitude, and the wish to see more city-folk take a deep breath and enjoy the moment!
