An added benefit to the Studio 8 teacher training program is diversity in our faculty. Each of our faculty members have studied various types of yoga at various yoga centers and with various masters. Previous participants have remarked about how beneficial this vast array of knowledge was in helping them to grasp the material. The faculty has almost 10,000 hours of teaching experience.
Joan St Clair, eRYT500, Lead Trainer, YACEP, Studio Director
Joan has directed three previous training programs at Studio 8. With thousands of hours of teaching experience, she is appreciative of the various backgrounds, experiences, perspectives and bodies that students bring to the program. Joan will begin a Yoga Therapeutics Training progam through Inner Peace Yoga in Austin, Texas this September. She looks forward to sharing her experiences and knowledge from training with the participants in this program.

Bill Price, RYT500, Trainer, YACEP,
Bill earned a PhD for his work in molecular physics from Berkeley and teaches the inherently non-dualistic subject of quantum mechanics at the university level. He became fascinated with meditation after reading Hermann Hesse’s “The Magister Ludi” (on every literate hippie’s reading list) at the age of 15 and soon after enjoyed a lecture and workshop on Transcendental Meditation with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Bill later discovered the gratification produced by the moving mediation of asana after a lower back injury in 1986. He has maintained a regular gentle asana practice, seeking out variations at diverse studios and workshops during his many travels. Desiring to deepen his practice, Bill completed his RYT200 in 2011 at the Om Seva Yoga School and the RYT300 in Spring of 2015 at the Asheville Yoga Center (currently RYT500, ERYT200). With a background in meditation and yogic philosophy, expect his classes to be filled with reminders of mindful movement conveyed through the breath, a sprinkling of Yoga Sutra with interpretations colored by modern science, and a little internal heat and sweat mixed in for good measure.
