Everyone welcome to any or all sessions Friday and Saturday; no yoga experience necessary (schedule below.) Teachers encouraged to attend Friday and Saturday prior to the Sunday teacher training day for 15 total CEs with Yoga Alliance (schedule below.)


Friday evening Rudy will guide you in an accessible and empowering introduction to yoga for your unique body, enjoying breath-connected movement to explore your pain-free range-of-motion.

Saturday morning you will discover that back bends can be safe and satisfying. In this workshop you will release the restriction of poor posture through a specific sequence that opens the chest, shoulders and back. Receive the joy of mastering supported back extensions that open the heart. Experience the progressive-stretch-deep-release approach, resolving deep-seated chronic tensions, strengthening energy-level, focus and stimulating your mood.

Saturday afternoon is deep-healing gentle yoga, designed to de-stress, nourish, and release unconsciously held “stuff.” Treat yourself to this layered approach, restoring resilience with a supported restorative pose. Next we’ll release stiffness and physical blockage with gentle yoga movement stimulating the nourishing flow of circulation and energy. Finally we’ll enter into the profound meditative experience of Yoga Nidra. While you completely relax, your attention will be guided throughout all the levels of your multi-dimensional being to release repressed, toxic experiences and beliefs from your subconscious realm.

The Sunday Teacher Training Module: Accessibility will give you what you need to make your Gentle Yoga classes challenging and engaging, smooth, slow, and delicious. Learn the unique Dynamic Gentle Yoga methods and techniques to satisfy varied levels of ability. When you attend this training day you will build your teaching skills with a Master Yoga Teacher Trainer. Join Rudy to discover how to create an encouraging and accessible class and be confident about what to include and what to leave out of your sequences.

Note to Teachers: Attendance for the full weekend is highly recommended as a foundation for the content of the Sunday training day and entitles you to Rudy’s 170-page DGY Teacher’s Manual at no additional cost. ($30 fee for the manual if attending Sunday only.)


Please note that on Sunday the location is The Yoga Nook in Glens Falls, NY

  • Rudy is masterful, patient, organized, wonderful.

    ~Alfa Rivard

  • Rudy is the best Yoga teacher I’ve ever had. It was a perfect combination of learning, relaxation, spiritual atmosphere, humor and support.

    ~Janie Goldenberg

  • Rudy is a professional yoga teacher. He has tremendous gift of building relationships to each of us in the workshop. There’s a wonderful aura during each session, a calming and accepting air.

    ~Hannah Lindenblatt

  • Rudy has a great delivery—calm intentional, clear- and is non judgmental and funny too! He offered many useful modifications and slow and gentle entries into poses that I will incorporate into my beginners Kripalu yoga classes.

    ~Lisa Friedman Reich

  • Wonderful class/workshop. Practice was a beautiful moving meditation.

    ~Emily Gobler

  • I was most impressed by Rudy Peirce’s style of teaching.  His directions were clear.  His primary concern seemed to be imparting a safe, non-injurious approach. I liked very much his simplicity and humility.  He was not presenting himself as a star with products for sale.


  • I woke up this morning and told my husband your class last night made me feel like I came home! Thank you so much.

    ~Denyse Le Fever

  • Rudy is so open and personable, allowing each person to feel listened to and understood.

    ~Domina Matthews Page, Therapist

  • Thanks so much, Rudy. Working with you got me hooked on yoga and meditation and I’m finally fitting both into my life on a regular basis. (Although Rudy is younger than me, I want to grow up to be like him.)

    ~ Paul Lindenblatt

  • What a great week of Dynamic Gentle Yoga teacher training.

    ~Lee Goodhew Romm

  • Many thanks, Rudy, for a great and informative weekend.  My students were very receptive last week to your new approaches to gentle yoga.

    ~Brenda Cowell, RYT

  • You inspired my teaching and I thank you so much.

    ~Leslie Roth

  • Your generous gifts — as both a devoted teacher, and as a love-focused human being — will continue to resonate deeply within me. Echoing the hopes of many at Yoga for Life, I happily look forward to your return.
    With gratitude,

    ~ Hampton

  • Thanks for your amazing training. I have gained so much from it and I have already begun to incorporate some ‘gentle yoga’ practices into my practice. The journey continues…Truly grateful to you.

    ~Jill Matthews

  • Our Dynamic Gentle Yoga teacher training with Rudy Peirce was amazing! I enjoyed and greatly benefited from your teacher training. I am very inspired. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us. 

    ~Andrea Lake Meharg

  • Taking your spring weekend workshop truly changed my life! Thanks so much, working with you got me hooked on meditation, and I’m finally fitting it into my self-care routine.
