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. Full Review

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! Full Review
