Join us for 200 Hrs of Yoga Teacher Training!

Join us on a journey of profound transformation with our revitalized 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training this February 2024. Our training is a bridge to personal renewal, a response to the world’s collective call for healing and growth. Amidst an era marked by upheaval and transition, our program stands as a beacon, illuminating the path of resurgence and self-discovery.


Building upon a strong, established foundation, we emphasize a holistic health framework that values every facet of the individual – the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual – ensuring a comprehensive journey towards optimal health and wellness.


Physically, we delve into alignments deep wisdom, acknowledging that when our bodies resonate in harmony, we shift from a stake of simple endurance to one of thriving vitality and vibrant health.


Mentally, it’s about forging a balance and synergy between the mind and other aspects of the self, creating a mindset that empowers and elevates.


Emotionally, we will learn how to navigate life’s ebb and flow with a calm, centered presence. We will explore deep-seated equanimity, liberating emotional encumbrances that have long over shadowed your inner brilliance. 


Spiritually, our focus will be on inner exploration and self-awareness. By questioning and deeply listening, we pace the way to clear our minds, reignite our inner fire, and connect to what truly gives our life meaning and purpose. 


Through this holistic approach, our training aspires to illuminate the path to true yoga – a state of union, wholeness, and harmonious existence with all that is.


Our 200hr Yoga Teacher Training program is rooted in the teachings of Vinyasa, a dynamic and flowing style of yoga that emphasizes the connection between breath and movement. We will inspire you to become a creative and compassionate yoga teacher who can infuse your classes with your unique style while fostering meaningful connections with your students.


Compassion is at the heart of our training. We believe that yoga is not just about physical postures, but also about cultivating a deep sense of empathy and understanding towards oneself and others. Through workshops, coaching and discussions, we will explore the philosophy of yoga and its ethical principles, guiding you to embody compassion both on and off the mat. 


You will be guided by experienced and passionate yoga teachers who are dedicated to helping you unlock your full potential as a teacher and as an individual.

When I signed up for Yoga Teacher Training I thought it was all about learning about becoming a yoga instructor. It was more than that, so much more!! It was about learning who I am as an individual, how I want to show up in this world and what I have to offer myself and others. I was able to connect to my higher self and life's purpose. I feel so empowered and inspired from this journey. I am aligned with myself and my life path.

This Yoga Teacher Training has not only helped my yoga practice grow but has helped me develop my true authentic self and see what I want to do with my life. Through these conversations, learning and self reflection I was able to find my true self and identify my passions and purpose. These past six months have had a huge impact on my life. Even if you never plan on teaching yoga, this course will help you grow to become a better version of yourself.

My YTT journey has levered me out of a rut I was in physically and spiritually. After completing the training, I feel more capable, more comfortable inside my own body, and physically stronger. It has opened up a new community to me, new teachers to follow and learn from, and an entire community dedicated to practicing compassion for their fellow people. Especially in this time of uncertainty and upheaval with the pandemic and everyone having their own opinion about what's going on, it's nice to find a community, world wide, that is choosing to look at things positively, and try to uplift one another, and maintain connection.

This course was worth it in every way. I got everything out of it that I was hoping for, and learned so much about myself in the process. The introspective work has helped me to see life with a lot more clarity. I have the confidence to teach and share my practice that I was looking for from this course, and I've become a much more authentic version of myself in the process. Thank you!

I chose the YTT because I wanted to go deeper into the history and origins of yoga, learn proper alignment, and improve/deepen my personal practice. What I got was so much more. My life and outlook are forever changed. I have bonded with wonderful women, deepened my personal practice, and learned so much more! I've been inspired to keep growing and learning. I feel proud and excited to see where this takes each of us. Lastly, I couldn't be more thankful for Stacie and Shelley - it has been a rollercoaster but I can't wait to go on the ride again and again!

Since taking this course, my life has changed in so many different "good" ways. I love the saying "You have to fill your cup first, to be able to give". It's true you can't give anything if your cup is empty. This training reminded me to take care of myself mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically and more. Things I needed to be reminded of now and again. To be love, you have to love yourself first. This course was not all about the poses, it guides you to find your soul, to hear the ache inside you, to find inner peace by connecting and healing some wounds from the past that you didn't even realize still affects you. You feel accomplished when you feel your heart smile with pure joy and happiness...that's what I felt after this course. Thank you so much Stacie and Shelley!

I began this journey to find my way home. I was feeling lost and overwhelmed in my life. I made a decision to take a leap of faith and try to better my quality of life, starting with my 200Hr YTT training with Wild + Free Collective.

The YTT program has all the info you will need to feel like a confident teacher and furthermore how to begin loving yourself. I would recommend this journey to anyone and encourage them to find the joy in the journey.

My 200Hr Yoga Teacher Training with Stacie and Shelley was truly amazing. Through sharing their journey and love for all aspects of yoga, and their incredible gift for teaching the course content, it allowed me to open my heart and find an inner peace that had been missing. On the mat, their instruction was undeniably the absolute. I came for the physical and the training gave me everything I was looking for in that aspect and more, but I am truly most appreciative of the unexpected emotional, mental, and spiritual gains that came with it. I struggled with the commitment for the first couple of months but felt a shift part way through and in the end was so glad that the training happened over almost six months, as I created daily habits in the form of journaling, gratitude and meditation and much more that are now part of my life.

My Yoga Teacher Training journey was one of self discovery but also a journey of deepening my practice both physically and mentally. I've learned the foundations of yoga and see now that it is so much more than the poses and stretching. By learning about all the aspects that make up yoga I have been able to heal and grow. The YTT with Stacie and Shelley is small and intimate and allows everyone to connect with each other and receive adequate guidance and support.

My Yoga Teacher Training experience was incredible! My original intention was to gain knowledge of the yoga asanas to carry forward into my massage practice. This training has not only met my expectations but exceeded them. The surprising outcome of my own spiritual growth and addition of more peace to my personal life was unexpected to say the least, but amazing!! I'm so grateful for Stacie and Shelley and the wealth of knowledge they shared during this training.

Stacie and Shelley are amazing and wonderful people, without their guidance and support I'm not sure I would have completed the training. They, and everyone in the training, changed the way I see life and my circumstances. This training is something I will take with me on every step on this thing called life. I found the clarity and inspiration to guide me in the next chapter of my life. This YTT was so fun and had such a comfortable vibe. If they did a 300Hr I would definitely sign up.

I started my yoga journey when I was in my 40s, I was never really great at it but loved it just the same. I wouldn't practice regularly but when I did it brought me clarity and a feeling of being lighter and calmer. One day as I scrolled social media, an ad kept popping up to take YTT, every day for weeks it kept coming up as if the universe was telling me something. So, I called, set a meeting, then signed up. Six months later with life struggles always throwing up road blocks, I made it, although not 100% complete, I still have the experience, and the knowledge to share with others, to be able to find a moment of surrender, to be able to face the challenges head on and to come out the other side with a little less weight on your shoulders and to be able to smile and say "I've got this, you've got this!"
