Inye is a Yoga Alliance certified Teacher Training School. Upon graduation students are eligible for a Yoga Alliance certificate.


Cynthia Cooperstone has been teaching yoga since 2002 in studio, private, workshop and retreat settings, and has been involved in numerous teacher training programs, including as Director of Kula Annex Yoga Teacher Training since 2015. Following her primary Hatha Yoga certification, she went on to study anatomy and yoga-based therapeutics, meditation and philosophy, and earned her advanced certification from the Anusara School of Hatha Yoga. More recently, she has been investigating High Intensity Interval Training and is adding strength, cardio and functional range conditioning to her offerings.

Cynthia’s studies in Literature (BA, MA) and her subsequent career as a writer, editor and communications consultant have contributed to her eloquence and her ability to make accessible and applicable the deep concepts of the rich yoga tradition. Her studio classes are known for their blend of alignment-based asana and philosophy, and her approach honours individual capabilities and perspectives even as it safely invites personal exploration and physical challenge.  Her trainings are distinguished by her deep respect for and commitment to her students, for her organized and integrated methodology, and for her unwavering commitment to demonstrating and fostering in her students the concept of service. 

Cynthia is honoured to direct the inaugural INYE Yoga Teacher Training.


Eddee is the director of Inye Yoga. He has been practicing yoga for eight years, his unique approach blends the elements of yoga, gymnastics, and hypnotherapy. He is a certified E-RYT200 teacher, certified Reiki Master, and a clinical hypnotherapist. Eddee hosts "Rainbow Classes", providing a judgement free safe space for everyone.

Eddee's main principle for deep integrated work is patience. He strives to bring flexibility and mobility back to the spine, to grow tall and move with freedom, and to re-introduce natural alignment back to the body. His practices are conducted gracefully and methodically, and he invites the students to re-discover their personal boundaries. Move and discover, that's how we grow and evolve.


Hali has been immersed in the study and practice of the yoga tradition since we was a child. She spend many of her formative years living in the Himalayas at the International Meditation Institute, studying yoga history, philosophy, yogic scripture, Sanskrit, chanting, meditation and pranayam. Since 1999 she has been teaching all of these aspects of the yoga tradition in various teacher training programs in Toronto where she makes her home, as well as in Europe, India and the Caribbean. Hali is known for delivering the teachings of yoga in a way which is both humorous and accessible, and feels that the most important thing is for the student to feel that they apply yoga philosophy into their every day lives. 

Hali is honored to be a part of INYE yoga teacher training where she gets to be working in collaborating with such an excellent group of core teachers. 


Ellie started her journey in Healthcare when she worked as a paramedic before switching gears to find her passion in Massage therapy. After gaining experience as a Registered Massage Therapist, Ellie began her teaching career at the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy. After completing a 200RYT program herself, Ellie began working with many Yoga Teacher Trainees in March of 2019.

Her lessons outline the anatomy of the human body, and how yoga teachers can use the information to provide both a safe and effective environment of practice.

Ellie provides an energetic and interactive class where questions are encouraged, and there are many laughs to be had.
