Pam C.,I love this yoga studio, I go to classes here regularly. I just finished my 200 hour Teacher Training Progam, and it was great! I feel stronger, calmer, and well prepared to teach yoga in several styles - including Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative. This teacher training was rich in experiences that uniquely prepared me to teach, and the nine month time frame allowed plenty of time for material to sink in, to discuss readings with our group, and for the teachers to mentor me in my own personal practice. The monthly pranayama and meditation plans deepened my personal practice to a surprising degree, and the many months to practice the different styles of yoga left me feeling confident and prepared physically to teach. The teaching circles were probably the most useful experiences! Every month we got to teach and received feedback - not just from the teachers, but also from the other students. So you really learn what works and doesn't work for a wide range of people, work with a wide range of bodies, learn many modifications and safety techniques, and see many styles of teaching - coming away with many approaches to enrich your own teaching. Melissa and Jon-Erik bring an amazing wealth of knowledge and experience to the classroom - everything from acupuncture and anatomy to hundreds of hours of teaching experience and even partner and acro-yoga! I will definitely be coming back to Yoga Garden for future personal and professional yoga classes!
I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you and all the exciting things you are teaching me in such fun and enjoyable ways with so many unique and creative tools. I never thought I would enjoy learning so much! I can tell I am gaining more confidence everyday and so can my family and friends. That’s a great feeling. I understand with patience and devotion it will come and my fear will continue to be less and less so I can let go and continue to keep moving on.Heather L.,
