Celia McCoy

E-RYT 500 | VINIYOGA, Gentle, Chanting

Celia completed her 230 Hour teacher training in 2011, and 300 Hour advanced teacher training in 2016, both through the former Yoga Center of Minneapolis. It was during the 300 Hour program that she met her mentor teacher, Kevin Kortan, with whom she studies privately. Celia is currently studying to become a Yoga Therapist through Yoga Well Institute’s 1,000 Hour Yoga Therapy Training, which will be completed in 2020.

Celia feels very fortunate to be receiving teachings from the Lineage of Viniyoga, and tries to honor them in each practice that she leads. Classes with Celia will focus on linking the breath and body, and seek to create specific outcomes, that affect deeper layers of the human system, in addition to the physical body. Varying techniques such as pranayama (breathwork) chanting and meditation will be used towards that aim.

Celia has an established daily personal practice, is a member of the yoga teacher training faculty, and works with individuals privately in addition to teaching group classes. When not engaged in the pursuits of yoga, Celia can be found knitting, singing, cooking, playing with her dog and raising her children.
