The discriminating yogi and yogini will be impressed by this extraordinary yoga teacher training….. Extremely well organized, magnificently yet compassionately taught, with first-rate guest teachers, this program manages to convey great joy, wisdom, and energy to its participants. ~ Barbara F, Arlington, MA
This intellectually rigorous, well-thought-out and balanced training offers substantial exposure to slow flow vinyasa, intensive attention to asana alignment, pranayama breath work and chanting. The training group is small enough for individual attention and big enough to create a sustained community. The lead teachers and guest presenters care deeply and bring decades of experience. The teaching is flexible and creative. This training promises to make you fall in love with yoga and deepen your respect for yourself and the earth. ~ Becky T, Boston, MA
Through the Yoga of Energy Flow training, I have become grounded both physically and mentally. Most importantly, I have learned to breath deeper, on and off the mat. With a unique blend of styles including Vinyasa, Iyengar, Kundalini, Kali Ray, and Meridian, I now feel prepared to teach a wide range of classes. Thank you for an incredible 10 months. I am excited for what my future in Yoga will bring. ~ Renne A, Andover, MA
