I had a wonderful training experience at Thrive Yoga and I look forward to completing my 300 hour training next year. I secured a job teaching prior to graduating from the program due to the reputation Susan and Thrive carry in my community. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to teach or deepen their practice. Full Review
