“My experience with yogaRIOT’s teacher training was life-changing! The program deepened my personal yoga practice and understanding of yoga in both a spiritual and intellectual way. Teacher training pushed my practice to the edge! It challenged both my physical practice and my mental and emotional being. Teacher training brought me a deeper understanding of my practice and myself. 

Not only did the training strengthen my practice, but it also helped me develop a strong yoga teaching presence. On day one, we dove into teaching. We learned to clear ground, hold space, and create a safe container for our students. We learned to assist every pose and to help students effectively modify when needed. Through teaching fellow trainees, community classes, and the built-in apprenticeship, I am instilled with the knowledge and confidence of being able to lead a challenging and mindful class!
 I made so many great connections with the other teacher trainees and learned so much from our talented and patient instructors. yogaRIOT teacher training is a fun, positive, and supportive community to grow, explore, make mistakes, and learn. I’m so thankful I took this opportunity for myself and my future!”
