    I truly enjoyed the YogaSource Teacher Training Program, Linda's vast knowledge and experience emulated through her teachings. The combination of lecture and practice teaching perfectly prepared us to deliver and articulate a well-rounded final class. I would recommend the YogaSource Teacher Training program to anyone who is interested in deepening their knowledge for personal practice or preparation for a career in Yoga.

    I could not be happier with the teacher training I received at YogaSource. Each of the teachers - Ann, Linda, and Nikki - brings a wonderful blend of passion, intelligence, humanity, commitment, and compassion to class every single day. Not only do they teach cueing and techniques to help you teach a class, but the training also teaches you to create your own themed class. You will walk out of there brimming with confidence and a bit melancholy that it is over.

    YogaSource Teacher Training program is well rounded and absolutely provided me with everything needed to start teaching. I thoroughly enjoyed my course and I am grateful that I completed my training here. Linda is very knowledgeable, thorough, and has a great sense of humor. She trained us to be aware of what is happening to our body in each pose. We learned to teach yoga safely and being respectful to each student's unique body type. Sequencing, cueing- every topic was taught and organized so well, that the end of it everything came together. I enrolled in the program with an intention of deepening my own Yoga practice. But at the end of it, I have learned so much more that I feel confident and inspired to teach other students and helping them in their yoga practice.

    I loved this program because it was scheduled over several weekends, which allowed me to work / study during the week without having to take much time off. My class was a diverse group of men and women, of all backgrounds and demographics and it was awesome to have exposure to such a wide spectrum of experience. The teachers, led by Linda McGrath, provided focused training and care to each of us in the program. The training material we were provided was extensive but easily broken down into building blocks of knowledge. I continue to refer to my manual until today, and we were taught expert tips and tricks for creating memorable classes. Most importantly, this program is one that demonstrates "Show, Not Tell" - meaning the teachers really lived the values of Yoga and it was so evident in the lessons and way we were taught. I'm forever grateful for the transformative experience I had at YogaSource Los Gatos!

    I would highly recommend YogaSource Teacher Training Institute! Linda is a fantastic teacher! I enjoyed her lectures and found her to be quite knowledgeable... and funny, too! Through this 200-hour Teacher Training program, I feel I've been given the basic tools necessary to comfortably begin teaching!

    I was a student that wanted to learn more about myself and expand my practice when I enrolled - and this program gave me that, and so much more I didn't know I needed. I really enjoyed Linda's humor, care, and intelligence as she taught. The space felt very safe, and that everyone's questions were valid and opinions were welcomed. We were lovingly and gently encouraged to work on our craft and become great teachers (or great students!) The information was presented in both a personal and practical manner. I truly have a new admiration for teachers, and the work / effort / depth that goes into creating amazing classes. A lovely and balanced curriculum, I'd highly recommended to any yogi that's curious to learn more about the body and the spirit of practicing <3

    Yoga Source Los Gatos is the perfect place to do your 200 hour YTT. Linda Schlamadinger McGrath is the owner of the beautiful studio. She is a Yoga Goddess and has been teaching YTT for many years. She is super knowledgeable, friendly and has a great sense of humor, making the 200 hours a joy to attend. I know that I have a firm grounding in philosophy, anatomy and methodology to teach flow and yin/restorative yoga classes. Yoga Source offers superior classes for all student levels and has amazing yoga instructors teaching all classes. I hope to see you on the mat soon, either in one of my classes or as a student.
