Testimonials from graduates of her 200 Teacher Training Program: 

"You made this teacher training program a life-changing experience for us. It would not have been the same if not for you selflessly giving us your time, your energy, your patience, and your kindness - with no questions asked."

"You not only led by example, but you created a program which held us to a high standard as teachers."

"Thank you for always being authentic! You are the one I trust to be honest & transparent. Your depth of knowledge about all things yoga - not just the asana but the "fascinating parts" are really what helped inspire me to want to do yoga teacher training."

"Thank you for your knowledge, humor, and caring disposition. This experience was made by your generosity of words and your innate ability to teach. Your words have sculpted my new mantra, "Teach what you know, you have a great network for what you don't, give thanks to who taught you, be true to yourself, and keep learning and growing."
