This unique YTT program was created by Kim Saunders, ERYT500, Yoga Therapist, Psychotherapist, a 20-year educator, and Founder of Lift Yoga.   Our YTT Collective allows students the widest variety of advanced education with seasoned faculty by partnering with a number of studios in North Atlanta.

With over 150 graduates, YTT Collective with Kim Saunders is the premier YTT program in the North Atlanta market. (From 2014-2017, Kim hosted at Lift Yoga and co-led YTT with her mentor Sue Hopkins, Founder of Etowah Valley Yoga, and reviews from those years are shown on that school's profile.) 

While Kim is the Founder of Lift Yoga, she has sold the studio.  All reviews you see are for Kim as the Lead Trainer for her individually accredited program from 2014 to 2021.

Our teacher trainers are given a well-rounded education in philosophy, anatomy, alignment, sequencing, assists, asanas, pranayama, chakras, meditation, and so much more.  The "so much more" is THE differentiator for this program. The "heart and art of yoga" taught here takes this program from the minimum Yoga-Alliance-required standards, which you can find everywhere, to the life-changing, transformational experiece that you will find nowhere else.

You will be taught a variety of styles so when you graduate, you can teach many formats.  Over the years, many students also attend who are not drawn to teach, but who, nonetheless, have a strong desire to deepen their personal practice and knowledge of yoga.  All are welcome!

With Kim's combination of Psychotherapy and Yoga Therapy, this training truly is an integration of mind and body.  Students will gain a full perspective on the 8 limbs of yoga and how yoga is far greater than simply a physical practice.  Upon graduation, students who wish to teach will skillfully be able to teach Vinyasa style, Power Yoga, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga and more.  If you are interested in personal growth and empowerment, this YTT Collective program is for you.  Join us in The Collective!

I am so honored to be among the graduates of the inaugural YTT Collective. This program has changed my life, literally in 3 months. The opportunity to learn from a collective of top teachers and studios is unprecedented and gave me such a thorough overview of yoga. My heart opened to so much in the way of opportunity to help others and the connections I made during the program will last for the rest of my life. I can always see the Divine working in my life, and this program was definitely brought to me by the Divine for divine purposes, and I am forever grateful! I highly recommend YTT Collective by Kim Saunders to anyone interested in a deep dive into yoga. Be ready to crack open! Becoming a teacher is just a bonus! Full Review
