What We are Offering
Epídavros serves a community in which the average student is new to yoga and above 40 years old. This makes us highly skilled at serving the fastest growing yoga demographics in the nation. As a studio who deeply values the fine art of yoga instruction, we will help you build skills necessary to practice and teach safely and effectively for all bodies at all stages of life. While the majority of teacher trainings available focus on instructing the fit and young body, at Epídavros, we teach you not just this practice approach, but also those needed in the broader world of yoga instruction; the beginner, the aging, and the ill or injured.

Your Epídavros Yoga Teacher Training certificate will be honored by Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga School 200-hour teacher training, and make you eligible to become a 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher.

Meet Your Lead Trainers
Lead Trainer, Yogi Nasser
Since 1994, Yogi Nasser has been teaching nondenominational Hatha Yoga to all those who are passionate about developing themselves holistically. His classes are conducted with an emphasis on conscious thought, breath, and movement. The practice is non-strenuous, yet challenging, and is tailored to suit each student at what ever level of ability they may be. From students who have never practiced before, to the most seasoned teachers, all can benefit from his guidance.
Lead Trainer, Tomme Fent
I took my first yoga class at age 51. Like most beginners, I came to yoga as a form of physical exercise. I also hoped yoga would help ease some of the aches and pains of “middle age.” Little did I know that I was embarking on a journey I would want to continue for the rest of my life.

I believe nearly everyone can benefit from yoga, regardless of their physical fitness or challenges. The physical practice of yoga - asana practice - benefits all of the body’s systems, and helps our bodies remain able to move with ease as we age. Asanas also help quiet our nervous system so we can truly relax and find peace. But the physical practice is only one aspect of yoga. For those who also embrace the teachings of yoga, the breathing practice (pranayama), and the meditative practices, yoga can become much more than a way of “doing” something - it can become a way of “being.”
I want to share that path with my students. It is my goal to offer interesting, varied classes that awaken both the body and the mind, and leave my students feeling centered, present, and ready to face the world beyond the studio. “With great respect and love, now the blessings of yoga instruction are offered.” Sutra 1:1.

Tyler Kragerud, BS, LMT
​With a background in personal training, yoga, and massage therapy, I love sharing my passion for the human body in relation to movement with others. Seeing how form dictates function and function affects our structure has always been fascinating to me. I look forward to bringing fresh perspectives to students who also share the joy of putting knowledge in to practice in order to experience it firsthand and share its many benefits with others.

Laura Helms
Laura came to yoga in 2005, when she enrolled in a class at a community college. She was instantly inspired and moved by the practice. Throughout the years her practice waxed and waned, but it was always there when she needed help getting through life’s transitions. In 2010, she used the power of pranayama breathing to bring her daughter into the world au-natural. After the birth of her daughter, she was left with a lot of extra baby weight and an unfamiliar sense of self. Feeling a bit awkward in her new skin, Laura returned to her yoga practice with a renewed sense of self, dedication, and commitment. She lost all the baby weight, and her story was even featured in Kathryn Budig’s Big Book of Yoga from Women’s Health Magazine. Laura began her teaching career by teaching English to adults, but was eventually inspired to switch gears and begin teaching her true passion, yoga! As an avid Vinyasa Flow practitioner with an obsession for arm balances and inversions, Laura seeks to bring her spirited love of yoga to her students. Laura’s classes are a playful multi-level mix of alignment, breath, challenge, humor, and love.

Sophia Miller
As a young child who experienced high anxiety and obsessive compulsive tendencies, I practiced yoga naturally. My body knew exactly what to do to calm and soothe itself in times of stress, whether it be rocking gently, hanging upside down from a tree, or curling up in a ball. I became involved in gymnastics, and fell head over heels in love with the balance beam because of the feelings of joy and peace that I felt in those moments of total concentration. I practiced gymnastics for three years before giving up the lessons due to financial hardship, and what followed was a painful adolescence and young adulthood marked by a total lack of physical activity and body awareness. As my awareness left my body, it got stuck in my mind, which was filled with confusion, fear, and longing, and I became obsessed with seeking out external sources of love. At the age of twenty-nine, I reclaimed my Yoga practice, and awoke to find, with joy, that all of the love I will ever need is already within me. As a practitioner of Yoga, my aim is to cultivate the health, presence, and authenticity necessary for that love to shine out into the world and someday expand to its fullest expression. As an Instructor, my purpose is to share with other practitioners the tools that have allowed me to bring peace back into my body and spirit, and to promote a community of support and connection as we walk together but separately on our journeys toward increased health and well being.

Shaunna Sutcliffe
200 hour Certification with Heartsong Yoga. 500 hour Holistic Yoga Therapeutics.
Breathe in and love every moment of life. That is my mantra. Yoga has helped me realize how to do this, and how to overcome stress and pain, which can stand in the way of letting go, breathing and being in the moment.
I have training in Vinyasa yoga, Yoga for Seniors and received my 200 hour certification with Leslie Ellis at Heartsong Yoga in Beaverton. In 2017 I completed my 500 certification in Holistic Yoga Therapeutics, with Annie Adamson at Yoga Union in Portland. I hold certifications of completion in Aerial Yoga, The Roll Model Method (self massage training with Jill Miller), and Primal Vinyasa Inspired (with Annie Adamson).

Stability and strength are more important now than ever as our culture has designed a life of ease, more sitting and less physical work. People have more injuries and pain from repetitive movement patterns and lack of movement than we should; and learning healthy every day movement patterns can prevent and heal these injuries. I like to think of myself as a guide or third party to your healing, I can see things you can't because you are in your body all the time, and because I have training to see asymmetries and subtle clues. Bringing awareness, into our every day movements and postures can help us come into wholeness, live more fully, and be more present and joyful.
