"I am very thankful of having been part of the teacher training. It has taken me to much higher levels of truth that I would not have reached on my own. We as a group have really enjoyed ourselves." Mette Juul Sorensen from Denmark, mother of 4 boys, wife to a loving husband
Times the course meets
"This course is wonderful, works cannot describe the amount of information contained. The instructor's knowledge and presentation was excellent (clear and concise) The most valuable things gained for me are truly living from the heart, the depth of knowledge of the asana and anatomy, meditation and all the wonderful friendships that have been formed with classmates." Hank Harris from Clayton, NC, Building Contractor

Gayle Murray Clayton, NC, Educator
" This is the best teacher training around. . .I have done several. My biggest fear with teaching yoga (i have been practicing for 30 years + taught a lot of Bikram and Iyengar classes was students with problems or special needs (high blood pressure, pregnancy, injuries, etc.) I no longer have that fear. The training incorporated anatomy all the time. I am inspired to learn more anatomy. The meditation is wonderful"
