Do I need to be a Yoga Instructor (200-hour certified) to take the Thyroid Yoga® Practitioner Training?

No! Many of our Thyroid Yoga® graduates are certified yoga instructors, however this is not required. Many of our graduates are also graduates of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition or are certified in another healing or movement modality. A 200-hour certification is recommended for teaching classes in a studio, though not required for the Thyroid Yoga® practitioner training and certification. We recommend all practitioners look into yoga teacher insurance for working with clients, studios, and other instruction.

Fern is a gifted teacher who holds a very special place in my heart. Her Thyroid Yoga® work yields a profound, cellular-level shift in her clients.

Her intuitive wisdom helps her students heal themselves through movement, breath work, and spiritual practice. Her work elevates, guides, and invites deep healing.
— Elena Brower, Author of Art of Attention

Since completing my training with you, I have been busy sharing my story with my students and fellow faculty and singing your praises - you are an inspired spirit! So excited to use my certification to help spread the Thyroid Yoga word. I feel blessed to be able to provide others with the tools and support to confidently increase health and wellness of their thyroid in a holistic way.

And - my doctors were so surprised when I went in to have my blood levels checked and my thyroid levels were fine - and even more surprised I never went on medication! Thyroid Yoga saved me!

Working 1-on-1 with Fern in Malibu was pure healing magic. Fern provided the attention and care that I needed in order to step into my new role as a Thyroid Yoga® Practitioner.

This training has brought my joy back, physical balance, and renewed sense of purpose - a thousand hugs to Fern is not enough to thank her for creating this training. I look forward to working with others to improve their Thyroid health and reclaim their radiance. I will be opening up Thyroid Yoga® sessions in 2018!
— Erica Paczkowski

I enrolled because I believed you were the real thing and had healing to offer - and Fern, you changed me. I will never be the same.

Thank you from my soul for creating Thyroid Yoga® and having the vision to heal yourself. And thank you for being a bad ass and putting it out there in a way we can all benefit!
— Stacy Fradkin, Certified Eating Psychology Coach (CEPC)

I feel like my eyes have been opened after this weekend and there’s no going back. Mind. Blown. The training instilled in me a deep desire to dive deeper, to keep educating myself, and to continue on this path of healing, yoga, and self-study. I really believe that the time for self-doubt is over and that it’s time to step into my power!

I am so grateful to you for giving me this opportunity. I can’t thank you enough.

You are an amazing teacher and I love the way you explain everything, and how you make it flow and connect!

I knew this was something I was supposed to do. My intuition has been telling and showing me the rest!

It’s really special and wowing how you connected all these different people/healers, and that they were ALL really empowering and knowledgeable. Its quite impressive to put together a program like this where everything just flowed really easily and we each left every day feeling powerful and inspired.

I found this training by searching late at night while I was suffering with symptoms. I wondered if there was any yoga designed specifically for thyroid conditions and Fern’s website popped up. I later found out about the teacher training and scraped together every last penny I owned to pay for it. I knew this was my calling and even though it hasn’t always been easy, I truly believe that I can use this to help others.

Finally instead of saying “why me,” my intention for this training was to use my illness as an asset to try to bring positivity into my life and this world.

Fern, you are amazing. Not only did you bring together all of these great minds but you also taught very compelling segments. Fern, you have such a peaceful presence and positive energy that keep me replaying the modules. If I am ever having a bad day I go back to Module 1 and listen to “Ik Ardas Wahe Guru” with everyone chanting together.

Bless you for putting this together Fern.
— Jennifer Gross - holistic nutritionist

This training has given me extra tools, insights and daily rituals to incorporate into my own life and practice that I can teach to others as well.

I love your vibe and radiance, really enjoyed the yoga and chanting sessions with you, and the oils are divine! Thank you very much for putting this all together and for shining your light - so that we can shine ours more brightly too!
— Juliane Allen, - Kundalini Yoga & Meditation, Thyroid Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Sound Massage, Moon Circles - Berlin, Germany

Wow, I am loving the training from Berlin! I wish that I was there with you but this is still an amazing experience to get to have so far away. I love all of it.

OMGoodness, during the Tantric Healing Circle I just laid down and chanted along and I had an incredible experience. Super cool stuff!

Thank you Fern.
This is a real blessing.
— Paige Johnson

Thank you Fern, your love and energy was totally felt even virtually.

I signed up before I officially became diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis so this was the perfect opportunity to heal myself and become more comfortable in my body, to increase self love. I also signed up to learn how to speak my truth and strengthen my third chakra since that’s been an issue for me.

I so appreciate what you’re doing. I love your honesty and relatable style. Your business talk was very helpful!
