    Namaskar Yoga 200 Hour RYT Program 2013 held on Feb 01, 2013

    I learned more than I ever imagined I would through Namaskar. I learned how to teach, safely and inclusively, and I also learned teaching confidence through practical application during the entire training. Kathleen demonstrated this practical application of teaching concepts throughout; she practices what she teaches. If you want to help people to empower themselves through yoga, this is the school to go to.

    My experience with Namaskar Yoga Teacher Training was very positive. The instructor (s) were present for the entire training. The amount of information learned in each module was substantial with clear obejctives and the emphasis of safety in each and every aspect of the modules. What I most appreciated about Namaskar Yoga Teacher Training is its incorporation and emphasis of ethical values and principles that make a solid foundation for learning and as such with confidence I would recommend this Yoga School for anyone interested in teaching yoga or deepening their own practice.

    Namaskar Yoga 200 Hour RYT Program 2013 held on Feb 01, 2013

    Namaskar Yoga provides high quality training with attention to detail in terms of knowledge required for safety, teaching practices, anatomy, and adjustments, while also being mindful of including philosophy and meditation aspects. Teachers are respectful, develop a welcoming environment, and are completely supportive of all RYT students. They teach with love, while also encouraging everyone to strive for excellence, and providing the necessary tools to be a yoga instructor. Students are encouraged to discuss topics, think critically, and take initiative in directing their learning goals. If you are seeking a reputable studio, with a flexible training schedule, and supportive environment that allows you to develop your skills without pressure, I would highly recommend completing RYT training at this studio.

      The owners of Namaskar Yoga are continuously conscious of providing the highest quality of yoga training standards to align with both the requirements of the RYT program, while also making sure to meet the needs and questions of the students in the program. There are transparent discussions regarding the reasons why topics are taught, with a focus on safety and inclusiveness. Attention is paid to make sure students understand content and are able to apply knowledge in practical, hands-on ways that will benefit their students in the future.

    Namaskar Yoga 200 Hour RYT Program 2013 held on Feb 01, 2013

    I felt Namaskar's 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program was absolutely exceptional! The program has a big emphasis on safety and on teaching the foundations and proper technique, with a good balance of practice instruction and theory. Through Kathleen's facilitation, the classroom environment was one of inclusiveness and authenticity. Her program provided a rich experience of the many facets of yoga including the history, philosophies, basic to advanced asanas, meditation, anatomy, specialties areas of yoga and pranayamas. I would recommend this program to anyone. I am happy to have such a positive and inspirational mentor such as Kathleen, who continues to shine her bright light in the Saskatchewan yoga community.

When I decided to take the RYT instruction, I wanted to be in an environment that was safe to learn, knowledgeable and encouraging. What I found in Namaskar Yoga school was all that and so much more. Kathleen and Doug became such an inspiring part of my journey and learning. Their natural ability to instruct with such heart, soul and commitment to their students and our future students showed in every module.This was the best 200 hours spent with strangers that became friends. Thank you Kathleen and Doug for selflessly sharing your knowledge and tools, breathing confidence in me and inspiring me to become a knowledgeable and confident instructor! Full Review
