River Flow Yoga was started by Mary Hilliker in 2006 as a mobile yoga teaching business in the Wausau area. Heather Van Dalfsen joined the teaching collaboration in 2010. River Flow Yoga evolved into a yoga teacher training school in 2015 with the opening of 5 Koshas Yoga & Wellness in Wausau, WI.
Our mission is to offer high quality entry level (200-hour) and advanced level (300-hour) yoga teacher training in a weekend format that is accessible for busy people. The progression of the programs over 12 to 15 months is meant to optimize integration for adult learners. The schedule minimizes winter travel and any scheduled weekends over important holidays and family celebrations.
River Flow Yoga teacher training offerings are rooted in an authentic yoga lineage as transmitted to the faculty by Gary Kraftsow, of the American Viniyoga Institute. Mary Hilliker, RDN, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT, School Director, Lead Teacher, Viniyoga Teacher and Yoga Therapist and several faculty members trained directly with Gary Kraftsow, of the American Viniyoga Institute, including:
