Newly Certified: Tyra Clemmenson

Meet Tyra Clemmenson, the most recently certified teacher to graduate from my Teaching Yoga to Athletes course!

I had to start with this glorious photo because Tyra played field hockey at my alma mater, Wake Forest University! In her senior year, the team won the ACC championship. She is an all-around athlete, spending time running, cycling, and dancing, as well as generally being outside.

While she took some classes while in college, after her collegiate sports career, Tyra discovered yoga made a great complement to her athletic pursuits. She now owns a yoga studio—Sky’s the Limit Aerial Fitness and Yoga—in Farmington, Connecticut, where she teaches aerial yoga classes in addition to mat classes.

While Tyra enjoys flowing styles of yoga, she spends plenty of time taking and teaching slow flow, gentle, and restorative yoga. These mellow approaches are wonderfully appropriate for athletes and anyone. Tyra is pursuing master’s level study in yoga therapy to deepen her skill in helping students with yoga.

If you’d like to join Tyra as an expert in teaching yoga to athletes, start your work on the course at Sage Yoga Teacher Training. I’ll also offer the five-day training in person at least twice in 2021: at Kripalu, likely in January, and in Carrboro, North Carolina over the summer. Stay tuned for those dates. Meanwhile, if you are near Farmington, Connecticut, visit Tyra for a class. And go, Deacs!
