    This training is incredibly comprehensive. I am finishing my yoga teacher training with a well-rounded and culturally accurate understanding of the yoga teachings and confidence to begin my teaching journey. Amy, the teacher of this program, is incredibly knowledgable and I know I am prepared to teach wherever I am called.

    Program had great variety with two teachers bringing their knowledge and experience. A very wide range of areas were covered. Training significantly improved my teaching and gave me many new tools to work with. The experience was also a great self study to dive inward for reflection and building confidence.

    Wow, 200hr training at the RajaHatha School of Yoga was incredible. Amy Pearce-Hayden is very knowledgeable and does yoga a great service by honoring the roots of this life changing practice. If you're in the Madison area and looking for a teacher who will help you with personal integration, asana, pranayama, mudra, etc. I highly recommend her. One thing I really appreciated was her dedication to Sanskrit pronunciation and clear differentiation between "this is what this (insert type of practice here) means to me" vs "this is what I learned from my teacher (insert name)" vs "classically this is what this has been interpreted as". She's thorough, organized, well spoken, VERY well studied, kind, and works with each student to provide a healthy and life changing experience for them while facilitating their growth and expansion into their personal yoga practice and their future as a teacher. I'm very thankful to have had the opportunity to be her student and will likely return to her for a 500 hr training at some point.

    When I talk to my other friends who have gone through 200-hour training, many of them express that they feel that they received a cursory, white-washed version of yoga training that felt like the studio was just trying to make money off of them. I had the OPPOSITE experience--Amy is an amazing teacher who really tries to gives you the most content for your tuition. She is an avid student of yoga philosophy and she makes philosophy a BIG, if not main, part of the content. I came out of the training completely transformed!

    It was a very well-rounded yoga teacher training experience. I got a large amount of both yoga philosophy and asana training. Amy Pearce-Hayden is an extremely knowledgeable teacher and also taught us to respect the origins of yoga and helped me realize that yoga is a lifelong process of self-realization. I highly recommend the RajaHatha School of Yoga to anyone interested in becoming a certified Yoga Teacher.

    RajaHatha School of Yoga Teacher Training is a transformative program both on the personal and professional level. The founder and teacher, Amy Pearce-Hayden is well versed in her spiritual understanding and teaching of both the intellectual and physical aspects of Yoga.
