This is an exceptional program. It's well-rounded and well-balanced covering asana, pranayama, meditation, philosophy and lots of juicy extras like Reiki, Sound Healing and more. And it's a fabulous community of teachers and students. I made friends for life there. Full Review

200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training at Thrive Yoga studio in Rockville was a great learning experience. I spent one full month with the instructors and fellow trainees and it has been one of the best investments I did for myself. Susan's passion for yoga and her knowledge blended with her outgoing personality makes her an amazing teacher. All other teachers who contributed to the training were fantastic,too and prepared us well for our ongoing yoga journey. I made friends, improved my yoga practice and learned a lot. Let's see where this journey takes me next. Full Review
