Kristine Valentine-Miller, ERYT-500, YACEP
Founder of TrueForm Yoga Teacher Training
Although Kristine began practicing yoga back in 1997, her focus shifted from a primarily physical practice to one invoking the mental and spiritual benefits while attending her 200 hour training in 2008 at Amrit Yoga Institute. Under the guidance of Kamini Desai, Eric Walrabenstein, Chandrakant and Yogi Amrit Desai, Kristine experienced first-hand that yoga is so much more than postures, it’s a map for life!
Since her initial 200 hour yoga teacher training, Kristine developed a true passion for yoga and has dedicated herself to continually learning about the vast offerings of yoga. She continues to attend numerous workshops and trainings. She brings the breadth of this knowledge into her own authentic and unique teachings.
Julie Jenkins, ERYT-200, YACEP
TrueForm Yoga Teacher Training Lead Teacher
Julie began her yoga journey in 2012. After completing her teacher training she knew she found her purpose – why she is here. Her intention is to always be completely accessible and approachable as a teacher. She has a unique ability to compassionately meet and empower students exactly where they are. She believes in self-expression, encouraging students to embrace differences in how asanas look aesthetically. She invites students to focus more on the felt sense of the poses.
As of September 2018, Julie has taught more than 3,400 yoga classes. She trained at the YogaVeda School of Yoga and Ayurveda in Alachua, Florida and India, Guruv Yoga Orlanda, Ishta Yoga NYC and Ocala Yoga Center. Julie teaches Vinyasa, Yin, Trauma Informed, Chair, Cacaoga®.
Frequently asked questions
Does this training allow me to be certified through Yoga Alliance?
How much yoga experience do I need to participate in this training?
What styles of yoga will I be certified to teach?
In order to give you the most comprehensive training we possibly can, we have incorporated several different styles into our training, including Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin. A yoga asana practice may have varied styles, each having its own significance. Practicing many styles will give you a more holistic view of what resonates for you, along with how and what you’d like to teach to your students.
What lineage do you follow?
The teachings you will be receiving during this training are influenced by a variety of yoga masters and highly respected teachers, including Yogi Amrit Desai, Kamini Desai, Eric Walrabenstein, Annie Carpenter, Mickey Singer, Kathryn Budig, Paramahansa Yogananda, B.K. Iyenger, and Phillip Askew – just to name a few.
Can I take this course even if I do not want to be a yoga teacher?
Yes, you can absolutely take this course without becoming a yoga teacher! You will, however, be required to practice teach with your follow trainees and be required to develop a class of your own prior to graduation in order to receive a certificate of completion. The practice teaching with each other throughout the training is an empowering exercise and helps to integrate the lessons you’ll be learning each weekend. The focus of this training is about the transformation that happens for you over this six month process. The changes that will naturally begin occurring for you will begin to be noticed and ultimately rub off on all those around you; so, without the formality of a class, you will actually be a very effective teacher off the mat.
Can I still participate if I have an injury? If I am pregnant?
Is there homework outside of the course dates?
Yes, there will be assignments in between our weekend modules. These assignments include journaling, anatomy, lecture questions, self and group practice, along with reading materials.
