“This training was so much more than I imagined! I thought I was going to learn all about postures and anatomy, and I did but I also learned something even more valuable – I learned about myself – my uthentic self. Thank you.” – LM
“This was such an incredible experience. I made new friends and I feel like we have known each other forever. I stepped outside my comfort zone to teach and gained a new level of self confidence I didn’t know I had! I learned so much more than asanas and pranayam. Wow! Thanks so much for this awesome training!”- JK
