T Fadear

The training is intense, as well as, the home study, but no stone is left unturned, and therefore I walked away with a full tool box for my future teaching, and personal yoga practice! My own growth could not be measured! Much love and gratefulness for this take away.

A Grose-Dehring

SOYA prepared me not only for teaching Yoga but for Living and Breathing Yoga. My spirit has been renewed in a better message for humanity and for life. I’ve learned that Yoga is more than just poses. I’m certain that there are other people out there like me and they need to know this.
