"The teachers are wonderful, experienced teachers who really put so much of their spirit and time in making sure the students really learn applicable teaching methods. I learned so much!" 

"Being able to learn and truly experience yoga to deepen my practice has been amazing. I have a better understanding of the philosophy and physiology behind the poses that has given me more confidence in my own practice on the mat and in the real world."
