    The Lotus Pond offers a highly academic teacher training with a focus on classical sequencing, alignment awareness, and historical accuracy. They provide an inclusive environment to train extremely competent and compassionate yoga teachers. I hope to continue my education often at The Lotus Pond.

    It was the most memorable time in my life, true moments of Samadhi. The Lotus Pond united my Body, mind and spirit into oneness and now I live my life purpose as a Yoga Teacher.

    The Lotus Pond Teacher Training has been outstanding. I completed both my 200 & 300 hour YTT with Val and Katie and their team. Bringing in master teacher Karin Stephan and others including Larissa Hall Carlson and Anne Curtis really gives the training program an advantage over all others in the area. I am more than prepared to share my passion for teaching several styles of yoga. 🙏��

    YTT changed my life - I am in a very different place now, than i was 6 months ago. I can't imagine going down this path without having the support and love from the teachers of The Lotus Pond. The attention they pay to EVERY little detail, ensuring we learned so many facets of the Hatha yoga principles was amazingly valuable. Reinforcing and practicing teachbacks has given me the confidence to start teaching -- whether it's 1 or 20 students. I have no idea where the 300 hour program (at Lotus Pond) will take me next, but i sure am excited about the next phase in this journey!!

    The program is very comprehensive, covering the history of yoga, the philosophy, modern versions, Hawtha foundational yoga practice. The teachers are phenomenal, so much knowledge, patience and guidance. The course materials, self study, weekly practice and teach backs are the best!
