And do so in an intimate setting…small groups are our hallmark.

Musélan provides trainings for Yoga Prairie in Minnesota.

Have you thought about being a yoga teacher? Maybe you already are a yoga teacher and want more than just a basic understanding of the poses. Or it could be that you’ve just learned about yoga and want to learn as much about it as you can, without ever teaching. Well, if you live near Minneapolis or are willing to travel to get the most advanced yoga teacher training, get ready. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn and grow with the oldest and most experienced Yoga training program in Minnesota.


Musélan’s Yoga Teacher Training program begins with the experience and knowledge of Laura Erdman-Luntz, E-RYT(500), a yoga teacher with over 20 years of experience, an education in exercise physiology and a life-long passion for yoga.  Nine other educators round out the staff assuring that there is a variety of experience and expertise in not only yoga and yoga philosophy, but other related disciplines. Learn about not only the yoga poses but Sanskrit, Chakras, Sutras, Yamas and Niyamas.  


This unique program gives you:

Small groups are the best learning environments for your training.  Just like this ancient practice used to be handed down from guru to student, so is this program done in small intimate groups.  You won’t be lost in the crowd!  You’ll connect personally with the staff and bond with the rest of your group.  This is about community and connection.  

  • Intimate group sizes (10-15 Trainees to 3-4 Trainers),
  • Personal interaction with interaction with lead trainers
  • Individual coaching and support


Deepen Your Yoga Practice
Even if you don’t become a teacher, Yoga Teacher Training will deepen your personal yoga practice.  Under the expert guidance of experienced Yoga Educator, Laura Erdman-Luntz and the Musélan team, you will find the unique meaning of yoga that lies within you.  If your calling is teaching, you will find a fabulously supportive yoga community to help you grow and reach the heights you are capable of.

“Taking Teacher Training from Laura and all of her incredible teachers has been a life-changing experience.   Not only have I learned the yoga postures and how to teach yoga from ‘THE BEST”, I’m learning how to live a more fulfilling and happy life.  This program is so well done, I feel lucky to be part of something so great.  Our program is nearly over, and I don’t want it to end!  I intend on taking the 500 hour teaching training with Laura to continue on this amazing journey.”

~ Deb Frischmon, 2011 200-Hour Participant


Ready to Share Your Passion?

Yoga teacher training or advanced study can teach you more than group classes, DVD’s and books.  It can teach you about the Eight Limbs (there’s more than just poses!), the philosophy, the rich history and the subtle art of this ancient practice.  Learn how and why this practice transforms not only bodies but also people’s lives.  Maybe it has changed your life and you’ve become aware of the possibilities, or it’s changed your life and you want to help others know the wonderful feeling of changing theirs.


Our Trainers are Trained to Teach Teachers:

Learning to teach yoga is more than learning the basics.  Under Laura’s guidance, the Musélan staff is trained to teach Yoga Teachers.  To guide the trainees in taking this beautiful art out into the world to transform their students’ lives. 

Our staff is also has a wide-range of experience.  Questions about the difference between Yoga and Pilates?  We have Pilates teachers.  Interested in Meditation or energy work?  We have meditation teachers, Reiki practitioners and Tai Chi instructors.  Want to know more about what it means to live a Yogic lifestyle?  We’ve all done it and ask ourselves that question every day of the journey.  

Our teachers not only know yoga and other disciplines but have taught in just about every setting you can imagine.  They will ensure that you feel confident and comfortable before you ever teach in front of a group.  They’ll give you the in’s and out’s of what it takes to teach in studios, health clubs, retreat centers, corporate settings or your neighbor’s living room.  Learn from our experience!  We are here to answer your questions and guide you on the path you take.


What Type of Yoga is it?

The Musélan program is not specific to one style of yoga – we’ll teach you all we know about all the styles.  Whether you enjoy yoga flow, fitness yoga, hatha yoga or restorative yoga (or something in between!) we give you the fundamentals to teach yoga.  Learn about the poses, the body, the anatomy and physiology to keep students, and yourself, safe and healthy. 



Our participants come from all walks of life.  Full time moms, teachers, bankers, marketers, graduates from other yoga programs, fitness professionals, part-time office workers and more.  What they all have in common is a desire for more…  What is it YOU want more of?  If yoga can help you find the more you are looking for, so can we.  It’s a better, happier, healthier, more fulfilling life we all seek.  Whether you want to be a teacher or just desire spending time deepening you knowledge of yoga, join them for a year that will change your life…
