Randelle Lusk ERYT-500 primary teacher, program founder and author. Randelle has been teaching yoga for close to a decade. In that time she has opened and operated yoga studios, developed and mentored dozens of teachers and she has been leading 200hr Yoga Teacher Trainings since 2012, successfully graduating over 100 students. Many of which have gone on to make teaching yoga their careers and some have even started their own yoga studios. Randelle is known for her vinyasa sequencing and has a keen interest in self-inquiry facilitated through yoga philosophy. Her knowledge of these topics is evident and you'll find them woven throughout the program. Randelle has three key objectives when leading trainings: the first is to is to prepare students to leave the program feeling able to write and deliver their own classes intelligently and with confidence; the third, to equipped students with a deeper sense of personal practice to carry forward into their day-to-day lives; and three, to foster connection and community within the group that encourages honest vulnerability, meaningful conversation, personal inquiry and laughter!
