    I had a great experience at the Zen Zone Yoga Teacher Training School. I began my training with a desire to deepen my understanding of yoga and to grow as a person. The program helped me accomplish those goals and much more! I finished the program with a desire to teach and share with others what I have learned! The wealth of experience that the teachers shared was incredible! We studied the eight-limbs, explored the chakras, shared personal stories and journaled, made artwork, studied anatomy, and did lots and lots of asana practice! Most importantly, we spent many hours practicing teaching each other with a focus on safety. Our kula was truly special, as we had to take our training virtually via Zoom when the Covid-19 Pandemic hit our country. Our trainers, Ruthann and Tricia, made it possible to continue the program and made it work. We all had to learn how to teach and practice online, stretching our skills even further. Do not hesitate to sign up for this program! It was excellent!

    The Zen Zone Yoga Teacher Training program was excellent. The instructors were extremely experienced, knowledgeable, and supportive through the program. The program took place over six weekends. The instruction was solid, and the feedback was specific and encouraging. The time for meditation, personal discovery, and spiritual growth was very meaningful. I feel very well prepared and ready to begin teaching.

    The Zen Zone was a fantastic environment to learn how to teach Yoga. Ruthann and Tricia have a special gift of teaching that made the program fun and unique with their complimentary styles. After their instruction, I feel more than capable of teaching a variety of yoga classes with confidence!

    Ruthann and Tricia are two of the best yoga teachers in the Kansas City metropolitan area. They are knowledgeable, creative, and fun and are dedicated to serving their students and teachers-in-training. I couldn’t imagine taking yoga teacher training through anyone else. It was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and was truly a transformational experience.

    Ruthann and Tricia work so well together to teach and train new yoga instructors - their different personalities and teaching styles give encouragment and freedom for new teachers to have their own style! The Zen Zone offers fabulous resources for new yoga teachers to begin their teaching career with community service classes right in the training studio. I am so grateful for them both!
