What our graduates think of our program:

"The 3 of you changed my life. Madia gave me an awareness of my judgment, negative and positive thoughts that help me try and live the Yamas and Niyamas teachings. Heather forever changed me when she gave me non-attachment to a story, mine or others, awareness of my awareness to the outside and inside world, breath and let go. I am a self-thought, non studio yoga practitioner,and Sara gave me an understanding of the poses, proper alignment, showed me how to help others in their practice that changed MY yoga forever. Overall I am not the same person that walked in February thanks to your time, your dedication, and your passion."
