A neighborhood resource for health and wellbeing.

Take a tour of True North Yoga.

True North Yoga teacher training programs begin January 2022!

True North Yoga provides multiple pathways for students interested in furthering their practice and teaching! The True North Yoga YTT (yoga teacher training) faculty consists of a senior team of yoga professionals. The faculty specializes in alignment based yoga, injury prevention, yoga therapeutics, biomechanics, Tantra and Vedanta philosophy, Ayurveda, physical therapy and traditional Chinese Medicine.

The yoga teacher training programs are:

  • 300 Hour Professional Yoga Teacher Training begins January 2022
  • 220 Hour Restorative Yoga Teacher Training begins March 2022
  • Prenatal/Postnatal Yoga Training begins June 2022
  • 220 Hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training begins October 2022

If you are interested in pursuing a yoga certification, we encourage you to attend classes taught by our certified teachers regularly. Success in any YTT (yoga teacher training) program comes from the dedication and work put in before, during and after.  Our teachers help students develop by providing feedback and mentoring early on in the process which continues well after the training has ended. Our goal is to guide each student teacher to achieve their personal and professional aspirations.

The YTT program design is created by Naomi Jones ERYT 500, co-owner of True North Yoga and Insight Yoga studios. Naomi has had the opportunity to create and help facilitate five yoga teacher training schools in the US and Australia. Learn more about Naomi’s training background here.

200 and 300 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher Training programs follow the Yoga Alliance standards.  A complete outline to the program is available to interested students.   Contact the studio for more details.

Praise for True North Yoga teacher training programs

Naomi was one of my primary teachers through the course of my 200-hour yoga teacher training. It was such a joy learning about yoga from someone who is so knowledgeable and so clearly passionate about teaching. She was so supportive of me in my time learning with her, and I so appreciated how humble and relatable she was. I never felt like I couldn’t ask questions, or be myself around her. A truly gifted teacher.

I am honored to have been a student of Naomi’s while obtaining my 200 hour YTT certification, as well as a Restorative Yoga certification. Naomi has an incredible way of sharing her vast yoga knowledge with humility and humor. Always welcoming, Naomi exudes warmth and comfort to all who attend a class or training with her. Naomi is one of those rare individuals who instantly puts you at ease with her down-to-earth spirit and ability to make connections with all of whom she encounters.

Naomi is FIRE! She brings such an electric energy to her classes and teachings which I find very refreshing. She knows her stuff and I always learn something while I’m with her. She holds space for others and is a mentor to lean on throughout the entire yoga training and even after the program is over. She is an inspiration and I am so grateful she offers her wisdom to the community.

Jenny L.

There is an openness about you that allows me to go deeper into my practice creating less duality within myself and those around me.  You are a light in the room that shines all around you.  Thank you for ALL you share.

Megan C.

When I began my yoga teacher training, I had no intention of teaching.  I really just wanted to deepen my personal yoga practice.  Naomi changed my mind about teaching. As a great mentor and guide, she has the ability to see the possibilities and help students reach their ultimate potential.  Naomi weaves her vast knowledge of asana, yoga philosophy, breathwork and meditation into all her teachings.  She cultivates a community of trust and gratitude. So grateful to Naomi for all her support as I continue along my journey. 🙏🏻🕉

Naomi has been a guiding light in my yoga journey and life beyond. I was immediately intrigued by her passionate devotion to the practice and how this had deeply affected her emotional and spiritual life. This connection is apparent in her asana classes, where she weaves her story in movement with humor and vulnerability. As a mentor, Naomi helped me to see past my own blockages and limiting beliefs. Her honest observations and creative vision helped me to manifest the life she saw was possible for me that I was not yet willing to see for myself. Thank you for being the teacher that you are.

Sam L.

Naomi shares her passion for people as well as her deep appreciation for the whole- person yoga practice. Under her example, I began to experience yoga beyond the asana, beyond the ego. Her mentorship continues to facilitate relationships with other students/teachers of yoga even after the training period & time together in the studio. She is the real deal- inspiring, connected, vibrant.

Sally T.

Naomi was an exceptional mentor during my yoga teacher training program. She was devoted to learning about my unique passions and interests, and in helping me make them a reality. I remember starting a mentoring meeting by discussing my dedication to adolescent wellbeing, and walking out with a plan to bring yoga to teens in the community. Naomi does a fantastic job of balancing organization and structure with genuine warmth and support. My many, many thanks go out to her!

Sophie S.

I can say with full certainty that Naomi truly helped shape me into the woman I am today. When I doubted myself as a student, she reminded me that yoga is my own practice and it will be here for me whenever I need it. Years later when I doubted myself as a teacher, she reminded me to show up authentically as I am and I will be accepted. I wish words could explain the deep appreciation I have for her mentorship and friendship. My life has more meaning and more happiness since Naomi entered and I know I’m not the only one who can say that.

Meeting Naomi Jones at my 200 hr teacher training was an unexpected blessing for my journey through life. Her presence is very inviting, fun, and genuine in essence. In a yoga setting she shines bright and holds a space for everyone else to do the same. When she is in town, just count me 100% in for my much-needed Yogi adventures.

Jodi E.

Naomi is truly one of the most genuine people I have ever met. Anytime I needed help with mentoring(or anything really), she would make time to help me. I feel honored to know such a huge hearted,kind, and knowledgeable soul.  She’s one of the good ones.

Casee H.

As a long-time student of yoga, Naomi was a guiding light in my journey to the next level. Under Naomi’s personalized mentorship, I completed the 220-hr yoga teacher training.  Her success in mentoring and community building comes from years of experience, book knowledge, practical application, and ethical leadership. I would highly recommend her as a teacher and mentor, or to organizations offering client education and wellness programs

Nicole F.

I had the amazing pleasure of meeting Naomi as a lead trainer in my 200 and 300 hour teacher training.  I loved how approachable and encouraging she was throughout my training.  She was so encouraging to all the students and has a unique way of pulling out each individual’s strengths to help them find their personal yoga pathway.  She is a true blessing to any yoga community.

Laila H.

I’m grateful to have my path intertwined with Naomi Jones. Naomi has taught me well beyond the asanas. She’s taught me how to teach, how to reflect, how to believe in myself and my abilities. Most of all, Naomi has taught me how to pivot, all while laughing and enjoying the fullness of life. I consider Naomi a mentor and now, a friend.

Robbie M.

If you are wanting to deepen your yoga practice or hone in on your teaching abilities, look no further. You are in excellent hands with Naomi. She will not only open your mind to yoga philosophy, but she provides an educational, nurturing and safe environment with no ego. All her lessons are taught with the highest integrity and reverence. I recommend Naomi wholeheartedly.
