    Emily and Christy are excellent teacher, or I call them true Guru. We learnt a lot under their guidance. Given COVID situation, the enabled us to grow and we all grew together.

    I practiced at Darling Yoga for years before I completed YTT there. Even knowing about other 200-hr training options, there was no where else I'd rather start my training experience. Emily Darling and Christy Burnette brought their unique styles and knowledge that complemented each other and gave us a well-rounded introductory study of yoga philosophy, anatomy, sequencing, etc. And when COVID quarantine hit, Darling Yoga quickly adjusted to continue our training online in a way that kept us students feeling confident going in to our final weekend. Love Darling Yoga and highly recommend their teachers' training!

    The Darling Yoga Teacher Program was excellent! Everyone was so enthusiastic and helpful. I learned so much, and want to mention that the program there enriched my life!

    Emily and Christy were absolutely amazing; I couldn't recommend this YTT more! They truly instilled confidence in all of us to get up in front of a room and lead a safe and inspiring class. Even if you're not interested in teaching, this is the next step if you're looking to build upon your practice and take it to the next level. Between how they delivered the curriculum to the sense of community they instilled, Darling Yoga truly made this a memorable experience. 2020 was a challenging year, that didn't stop these ladies from powering through and getting creative during YTT. So honored to be a part of this family.

    They did an incredible job of adapting when we had to go virtual & give us options when we were able to come back in person so that all were safe & comfortable. The teachers were supportive & always available to answer questions. The program had a clear, progressive structure so that we felt prepared by the time of our practicum.

    Darling yoga teacher training program provided a broad base of knowledge and support. The program has well developed resources. I enjoyed the camaraderie of the other student teachers as well as the warm approach of the staff. The program follows the classical eight limbs of yoga. I appreciated the focus on learning Sanskrit. After completing this program I feel prepared to present myself as a beginning yoga teacher.

    A great experience through & through. When I found Darling Yoga 3 years ago, right away it felt like I was at home. For me It was so much more than a great place to practice yoga. There was a deeper spiritual connection as well. Mind. Body. & Spirit. Four years ago I would never have imagined this incredible journey I find myself on today. When I started practicing yoga, it was all about the Asanas. As my practice deepened so to did my interest in yogic philosophy. The spiritual side of yoga was something that I found myself identifying with. My desire to learn more increased and I felt called to teach. To share with others the transformative power of Yoga. In 2019 I passed on the opportunity to sign up for YTT. I used multiple excuses to hide the underlying fears I had. So, when the opportunity to sign up for 2020 YTT arose, I did not hesitate. I spoke to Emily at length about my challenges & fears surrounding learning & studying, all stemming from a head injury many years ago. The support offered from her, the staff and the other students made this journey a success. 2020 was the year intended for me to dig a little deeper, to stretch my limits and discover new potential. I was not alone in my challenges. COVID 19 provided us all with a unique challenge. Emily & Christy had to shift from teaching hands on & in person to completely virtual. While Sarah worked tirelessly behind the scenes to get the technology in place not just for those of us in YTT but for the entire studio so they could still provide classes to the yoga community. If you are looking for a studio for you mind, body & spirit, look no further. Darling Yoga offers the Yoga Trifecta. I am filled with gratitude for their presence in my life and for the significant roll they have played in my Yoga journey. As I continue to evolve on this journey I know the ultimate is to share and offer to others what I have gained. I look forward to the impact through the magic of teaching. Peace. Love. & Light to all Namaste 🙏��
