      To what extent do you feel this program met the following learning objective; The student will become confident with human anatomy within the context of teaching yoga


      My experience at Namaskar was exceptional. The program was so flexible. For my financial situation and time, it allowed me learn ... and continue and apply my teaching abilities a little at a time. It took me a few years, but the experience was so worth it! This past November I finally completed the 200RYT program. This was a journey in the making and I wouldn't do it any different. I Thank the super lead teachers, Kathleen and Doug. I give Namaskar Teacher School a 10 out 10!!!

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
