Meet the FLY Trainers

Our trainers work hard to make sure you walk away from the teacher training program feeling ready to teach!

Firelight Yoga is thrilled to welcome Pamela Weatherspoon back to our studio to take the lead on the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion portions of our training!

Pamela taught regularly at FLY in 2017 and 2018 and currently resides in California. She is passionate about finding creative ways to bring yoga to those who typically don’t think yoga is for them, and to those who may not have the means or ability to practice at a studio. 

In addition to teaching yoga and fitness classes, she has been working professionally in the diversity & inclusion space for 16 years.

Firelight Yoga’s 200hr YTT was FANTASTIC!

I did not expect to come out of training feeling so knowledgeable and prepared for teaching. Most valuable, are Jess and Holly’s attention to detail and responsiveness to feedback, so the program was able to adjust to the needs of the student, in many ways. I appreciated the coverage of so many aspects of yoga, including (but not limited to) history, philosophy, anatomy, equity, inclusion, trauma, sequencing, music, meditation, breathing, and different schools of yoga. And as this is a new program, I have no doubt that it will only continue to get better!

The teacher training at Firelight is fueled by the dedication and responsibility of the Firelight owners, teachers and community.

I was incredibly impressed by their response to Covid and how they kept us going and moving towards the completion of certification while so much was going on in the world and in their respective personal lives. I can’t say enough about their grace and equanimity. It was an honor to be part of this experience with Firelight. They, by all means, practice what they preach and take their yoga off the mat.

Overall a wonderful 200 hour program with plenty of opportunities to practice teaching and using our voices.
