Everyone welcome to any or all sessions Friday and Saturday (schedule below); no yoga experience necessary. Teachers can obtain 15 total CEs with Yoga Alliance for attending the full weekend. Saturday afternoon is a pre-requisite for Sunday (schedule below.)

Tap into true empowerment through the experience of Meditation In Motion. Enjoy the practice of Dynamic Gentle Yoga as a journey into your energy body where flow is spontaneous and healing. Being in a flow is deeply nurturing on the levels of body, mind, and spirit. Under Rudy’s gentle guidance you will discover the inner strength that emerges from letting go.

MELT Method

Start your weekend with a Friday afternoon class in the MELT Method®, offered by Rudy’s wife, Joyce. Learn techniques to release stuck stress that will enhance your practice of yoga and support more ideal alignment. MELT is also known as Hands Off Bodywork™; participation in this class is like treating yourself to a therapeutic massage. Learn more.

Friday evening’s class includes an emphasis on standing strengthening postures and ending with deep rest and relaxation. Rudy guides this class in a manner that makes this practice safe, accessible, and satisfying for bodies at all levels of experience, including complete beginners.

In the Saturday morning session, Rudy will guide you through a Dynamic Gentle Vinyasa practice, a flowing sequence of accessible postures, linking movements with breath. If you have shied away from a vinyasa practice thinking it is too difficult or requires a high level of flexibility and strength, come experience Rudy’s class and discover new freedom in the Dynamic Gentle Yoga approach.

Saturday afternoon‘s session is guided in a meditative style with reminders to focus on sensation and breath, anchoring your mind in the neutral witness consciousness. The practice then evolves as you explore alternating willful movement with listening to your body’s natural wisdom as it leads you to the next movement. This session is a discovery of spontaneous movement, the experience of energy/prana moving you. In Dynamic Gentle Meditation in Motion you access freedom, healing, and empowerment through letting go as you allow your body’s natural wisdom to be the source of movement.

The Sunday Teacher Training Module, Empowerment: Guiding Meditation In Motion, will be lecture/discussion about preparing students to experience prana (energy) flow as well as an exploration and practice of the methods to guide students in this empowering experience. You will develop your skill for leading students in letting go and accessing spontaneous movement. In this module you will gain or enhance the skills you need for guiding this deep, empowering aspect of yoga practice:

  • learn to set an inspiring informative context, create safety, and convey essential knowledge about Meditation in Motion so that even true beginners can access this empowering experience of flow
  • learn how to give a demonstration demonstrate the meditative quality of flow to further prepare students to access this experience themselves
  • develop a language repertoire that works best to guide a group in a self-initiated meditative flow
  • explore and practice the techniques you will need to integrate and ground your students’ experience of Meditation in Motion
  • learn how this experience can be provided in a regular yoga class or developed into a special workshop
  • receive information about the philosophical and yogic origins of Meditation in Motion
  • get recommendations for music and poetry that support you in guiding an empowering experience of flow

Note to Teachers: While attendance for the full weekend is highly recommended, attendance on Saturday afternoon is required for participation in the Sunday training day. Attendance for the full weekend entitles you to Rudy’s 170-page DGY Teacher’s Manual at no additional cost. ($30 fee for the manual if attending Saturday afternoon through Sunday only.)

  • 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.
