    A beautiful experience! Deepening my practice, in community with Val and Ship's guidance was a gift. The training was comprehensive, well paced and flexible in delivery. A lovely blend of theory, instruction, workshop, community practice and personal reflection.

    Mothership's training was exactly what I needed to further my own practice, develop as a yoga teacher, and accompany me in my personal life journey. One of Mothership's claims to fame is that they don't produce cookie-cutter instructors, and that is so true! Mothership helped me further develop my own voice and unique style, while also grounding me in the important history, philosophy, breath practices, and physical practices of yoga. I'm absolutely thrilled to now be part of the Mothership Yoga diaspora!

    I could not recommend this program more! Ship and Valerie are incredibly knowledgable, supportive and encouraging. I learned so much and took my understanding of yoga to a new level. A truly wonderful experience.

    I loved the Mothership Yoga course and would recommend them to anyone. They created a warm and welcoming atmosphere while keeping the course material exciting and engaging. I was always eager to come to class and learn something new.

    This is the best school to be trained by! I had the best experience learning from them and have gained so much knowledge and I feel confident teaching in any setting. They are very kind and have a great way of teaching so that the knowledge can be absorbed and practically understood. I am looking forward to seeing them in person and training again with them in the future.

    Both Val and Ship are extremely knowledgeable and experienced at training new Yoga teachers. The depth and breadth of our instruction was indeed inspiring. It was beautiful to observe instruction between 2 teachers who are so in sync that their lessons flowed seamlessly. Being taught by them was an enriching experience.

    Attending Mothership was an incredible experience. Their teachers Val and Michelle have a vast amount of experience, are well educated in all they teach and their guest speakers are phenomenal. They are all truly experts in their fields and provide an exceptional education that covers all facets of yoga. This was an exciting and fun experience and they attract wonderful people to their school. Our class was full of excited and interesting people from all walks of life, all with the same goal of learning from some of the best you can find. The course itself is intensive and you will leave feeling fully prepared for the next step in your journey. This was a fantastic experience with some of the most wonderful people you will ever meet and a top notch education that cannot be beat.

    Michelle and Val are the most supportive and encouraging teachers. I always felt comfortable asking questions or going to them whenever I needed help. The program they have put together is so comprehensive, I felt confident enough to start teaching and applying for jobs right away! They do all they can for their students and truest care about all of us and it shows!
