“Science is progressing. Art is progressing. Yoga as an art and a science, it has to progress. Otherwise there is stagnation again. And someone has to come to life, to revolutionize again.” – BKS Iyengar

"The perfect blend."
It was the perfect blend of book knowledge, spiritual components, practice, and community. I always felt supportive by facilitators, teachers, and the other students in the YTT program. It really is a community + family that you are learning alongside.
"Comprehensive, educational, and eye-opening."
"Teacher training was comprehensive, educational, and eye-opening. The teachers dove deep into yoga philosophy and shed light on not just what yoga is, but why it exists and how we can carry on the tradition. They encouraged us to practice stilling the mind, making choices with intention, and question, "What am I doing, and why am I doing it."
"The most knowledgable teachers I have come across."
"This has been such an amazing experience that has helped me grow and evolve into a better person. This experience has allowed me to get to know myself better and share with others in a way that is hard to find elsewhere. The [teachers] are some of the most knowledgable teachers I have come across in my years of practice. It is an honor to learn from them."
"A truly transformative experience."
"Yoga Teacher Training is a truly transformative experience. No matter where you are in your life it is sure to expand your thinking and challenge your views. The guidance in overcoming the spiritual, physical, and mental challenges in Yoga (and in life) is so much more than I could have imagined."
"Renewed sense of self love and confidence."
YTT was transformational. Throughout this journey, I not only learned the history, philosophy, and asana of yoga, I learned so much about myself, my gifts and strengths. I have a renewed sense of self-love and confidence.
"I have never felt more capable, self-assured, and enriched."
"I signed up for yoga training with the intentions of improving my comprehension of poses and becoming more advanced in my physical practice. I did not expect to undergo an internal transformation. Finishing YTT, I have never felt more capable, self-assured, and enriched than I do now."
