Since 2001, Mr. Utech has helped train and certify some of the Midwest’s most successful yoga instructors, trainers and studio owners.  As the former owner of Utechniques, an award-winning automotive marketing, advertising and training agency, then as owner of UpDog Yoga, and now as Baba Ganeesha Press’ Director of Yoga School Operations, Duane Utech provides a uniquely-effective, real-world approach to teaching that aims to help beginning and experienced teachers “teach the change they want to see in  the world.”

To help facilitate that change, Baba Ganeesha Press offers students, teachers and studio owners several ways to receive integrated, hands-on training that serves to augment the training curriculum covered in each manual.  Three different Experiential Training methodologies are available.

On-Site Training


Three times each year, in-depth training is provided on both Yinsight and the Art of Adjustment as part of various yoga school programs. Continuing Education Credits (CEU) are available for both Yinsight and AoA as part of select Spring, Summer and Fall 200- and 500-hour Teacher Training curricula.
