    The 300-hour yoga teacher training offered by the Yoga Space at Menla has been an exceptional more-like-1000-hour course in yoga and Buddhist philosophy and practices. Michele Loew and Tenzin Robert Thurman embodied compassion and mastery as they led students through deep and authentic knowledge, skills, and techniques covering a broad spectrum, from traditional yoga to esoteric Tibetan traditions. This course took my yoga to another level and opened new venues to learn and teach, yoga paths that will take lifetimes to deepen. I highly recommend this school and these teachers!

    I highly encourage anyone considering participating in Michele & Bob's 300 hour Vajra Yoga Teacher Training to do so. It was an honor to be a part of something so special. Bob's knowledge of Buddhist philosophy and practice is unparalleled by any Western academic and Michele's ability to share her wisdom and practice is truly magical. Their individual commitment to the Vajrayana path is obvious and is clearly demonstrated through their ability to teach on the subject. My life has become more meaningful through participation in this program.

    I'm so grateful for this opportunity to have had grown my yoga teaching and practice with some of the top teachers in Ashtanga, Yoga Nidra, Anatomy, and Meditation. The course was well balanced with a variety of styles and perspectives, allowing space to lean into discomfort, and remain curious about the breadth and depth of yoga. I had the opportunity to learn from my fellow students/instructors, and to ask endless questions about Ashtanga. I developed a surprisingly deeper and much more personal Yoga Nidra practice, along with the confidence to share it through teaching. The anatomy classes blew me away in terms of organization, pedagogy, accessibility, and translation into practice. Thank you.

    Michele Loew has over thirty years of experience as a yoga instructor, has studied with world-renowned teachers (Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor, Adil Palkavala, and Robert Thurman (in the Tibetan Yogas)). She is a treasure of information and coveys her teachings in a way that is comprehensive, synthesizing, and inspiring. I would recommend this teacher training to anyone/everyone who wants to become more knowledgeable about yoga--not just asana, but philosophy, practices, and history.

    I am immensely grateful to train at The Yoga Space. It's an amazing community of teachers and students who care deeply about the power of yoga to make the world a more compassionate place. I've witnessed so much external and internal growth in myself through this training and feel more empowered to go out and share yoga with others.

    Michele Loew is extremely kind and knowledgeable in her teaching and sharing of yoga. She is attuned to her students' needs, and their capabilities. It was a nurturing and educational environment, and there is such a strong sense of community between teachers and students alike.
