YOGA FACTORY FOUNDERS
Yoga Factory was founded in 2015 by Zeb Homison, Emily Vendemmia, and Philip Vendemmia. They believe that yoga, and the life-changing benefits that come from a consistent practice, is important to humanity now more than ever.
The Yoga Factory Teacher Training is committed to building a healthy community of teachers using evolving methods while continuing to explore and teach the original 26&2 series. In union with so many others whom we've practiced with over the years and the ones we will meet in the future, we can create a community of inspiration, ingenuity, and most importantly, of healing.
2014 International Champion, Zeb has placed in the top four of the USA Yoga National Finals from 2008 to 2014. Held in India for many years, this international ‘yoga competition’ is founded on the ideal of spreading interest in yoga throughout the world and focuses on the individual improving their own practice, not competition against opponents.
Bringing with him a deep knowledge of yoga technique, Zeb also has an extensive background in dance, physical theater, mask work, and the performing arts, holding a BFA in Theater Arts from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
In 2015, Zeb studied with Jared McCann and completed an additional 200 hour certification. He is the owner of Yoga Factory Pittsburgh and a founder of Yoga Factory.
