Yoga Teacher Certification in Omaha

What makes a Yoga Teacher special? Of all the teachers you have had, consider the ones that you really love. What are the qualities that drew you to them and keep you coming back? At Sound Method, we strive to bring out the authentic leader in each of our budding instructors. We provide a strong non-dogmatic curriculum that prizes individual strengths. It turns out, very few of us return to a teacher over and over because they can rock a handstand, or because they have the best playlist. We crave authenticity and sincere passion.

Pamela was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah where her personal yoga practice began many years ago. She moved to Omaha in 2013 and her first search in her new town was for the yoga studio she would call home. She found it at Sound Method Yoga so it was understandable that it also be the place to complete her RYT 200 hour training. Pamela has been an adventurer most of her life and always sought out “the experience” of each event, encounter, moment and each time on her mat is a new and irreplaceable occasion. Her mother always said she would be a business professional or a comedian; somehow, she makes them both happen. The love of life and true well-being she that endeavors to achieve each day, shows in her teaching, be it in the office or on the mat.
