Past Yoga Teacher Training Testimonials

“I knew the program would be special, but I didn’t expect it to be as extraordinarily special as it was – words can’t describe it.  My Yoga practice has become deeper and more expansive.”


“The program was perfect! It definitely opened me up to new insightful and magical secrets. I loved every moment of it.”


Excellent work. Very good theme, No need support, works perfectly. Congratulations !!
Waiting for version 3.0. Very excited.


“I can’t say enough how wonderful this course has been. I can only imagine the huge amount of time it took to put it all together. Dr. E said it would be like a buffet, and it is, but it never feels like we are getting a shallow intro into any of the types of Yoga. The deep belief that each person has in their particular field is clearly evident and the joy they have in introducing us to their specialty is also clear. Such a joy!”


“This program helped me get back to what I initially loved about Yoga.”


“The program exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend it.  I enjoyed the
variety of speakers and my classmates were great, too.  I would encourage all of my friends and students interested in expanding their knowledge of Yoga to take this course.  It is a catalyst to broaden their knowledge and scope of teaching.”


“The LMU teacher training was awesome and one of the best educational experiences I have ever had.  It was s bargain as a “schooling” experience and way better than law school.”


“The time spent in your Yoga Teacher Training Program has truly been transformative for me in many ways. I try to practice daily what you taught us and it has really changed my life. I am writing poetry, publishing children’s books, trying to stay true to my voice, and I’m taking the risks I would never have the courage to take if I hadn’t been your student. Thank you from the depths of my heart.”


“The teacher training program is great at building a strong foundation. My Yoga practice is a lot more focused and spiritual now because of all that I learned.  My expectations were to have all the tools to be a great teachers and now I do have them.”
