    The Soul of Yoga is MAGICAL. I came looking to start a new career path in yoga and ended up opening the door to a profound path on which I am seeking my true self. It is more than just a yoga teacher training; it's a window into your soul and a first step toward living your dharma.

    Where do I begin? The Soul has some of the best teachers in the industry teaching and supporting you through this momentous step that you’ve decided to take! The curriculum was broken out into 2 modules, allowing for ample time in clinics and practice hours, reflection and self healing, all within a warm, inviting, collaborative space of positive energy. Each faculty member brought their wealth of experience to class - sessions were engaging, thoughtfully scheduled to build on each other and the curricula was so well rounded that I’ve walked away with a stronger foundation in yoga and the various lineages than I ever imagined. Everything from yoga philosophy, theory, practical, modifications, seva/service, mythology, chakra/energy systems, were interwoven across each day. We dove head first into the business of yoga, sequencing and class design - so much of which was eye opening despite having practiced yoga for years. If you’re in search of a school that leads with the heart and believes that yoga is for every-body, look no further. The relationships and community you find at the soul alongside your YTT will last you a lifetime. Thank you, Soul of Yoga! Namaste.

    Soul of Yoga teacher training is a gift, for the self and others who teachers go on to serve. It was professional and well rounded, with exceptional master instructors leading students through a profound experience and education.

    This was the best place to have taken yoga teacher training. It really was a beautiful awakening and a great school with an awesome staff who really knew what they were teaching. The best part is that yoga is a part of who they are.
