See what our graduates have to say!

“With humility, I can honestly say that I am a good teacher.  Not just good, but great.  And I owe this to you.  I lead students safely through a rigorous, fun and inspiring yoga practice.  I have been asked to infuse creativity into my sequencing and I do that well while keeping in mind that you need to build upon postures to prepare the body for more difficult postures.  Students often approach me after class and say they are grateful I warmed them up and how great they thought the class was!  It is an amazing, humbling, beautiful honor to be able to teach yoga and have that appreciation reflected back.  I know I so much more to learn and grow into as a teacher … I know I have only scratched the surface of yoga study.  It is a lifetime commitment.” ~ Sarah H.
“Hot 8 Yoga Barre Teacher Training deepened my practice, increased awareness of my body, and provided a supportive environment to learn and grow. I would take this training over and over again.” ~ Valerie P.
