“Thank you for all the wonderful training you have provided. I have learned to cultivate self-awareness, authenticity, curiosity, and self-compassion in myself. I realized that if I want these qualities in my students, I have to embody them first. It has been a transformative experience for me, and I hope to share that with my students.”
“I highly recommend this course, regardless of your yoga experience. I loved the ability to check in weekly for the live sessions with the instructor and other students. It allowed for great conversations and additional insight through the diverse backgrounds and experience in the group. Thank you again for your dedication and passion – it really shows in your facilitation of the course.”
