    At the Lotus Pond Center for Yoga & Health, I had the most wonderful & informative time there. I was very comfortable with the teachers, even was able to go at my own pace when needed too. Overall was able to grow confident in my Yoga practice, and once graduation came around I had no fear to be out in this world to be called a Yoga teacher. Thank you truly to the Lotus Pond Center for everything & all the teachers and their teachings you have given me in the YTT 200 hr program & more to come from YTT 300 hr program. Much Love & Light

    It has been an honor, joy, & privilege to complete my Advanced Yoga Teacher Training (300hr) at the Lotus Pond. The studio is owned by 2 of the most beautiful souls you could meet and its YTT programs have been meticulously cultivated to ensure a well-rounded introduction to, and progression of, your Yoga studies. From the required Ayurvedic and Advanced Asana & Pranayama courses to a much deeper dive into its rich history and study of the Yoga Sutras the content is rich with knowledge & wisdom. The program's teachers truly are amazing and approachable and want you to succeed as much as you want to succeed. The workshops become like mini-reunions and when you come back together it feels like family (a highly functional one, that is :). I'm exceedingly grateful to the Lotus Pond for the tremendous impact it has, and continues to have, on my life. Namaste!

    I am so grateful that I experienced the Lotus Pond 200 YTT program. It changed my life. The education we received in only 6 months was paramount! This program prepares you to teach with confidence. There was so much time dedicated to teach backs and sequencing. Time spent on philosophy, history, Ayurveda, meditation techniques, pranayama, the list goes on. Everything is broken down incrementally so that you can fully integrate it. The people here are patient, kind and radiate wisdom and understanding. Each teacher brings their own unique experience and it’s wonderful to get to witness multiple teaching styles. They bring a sense of fun and play into learning that cultivates an imaginative space for the class. I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about this program.
