“I wanted to write and let you know how much I thoroughly enjoyed taking the online course YOGAMAZÉ 101: Teaching Beginners. I live in the Caribbean and have been teaching yoga full time for five years. It is hard to attend trainings due to my location, so when I found this course online I was excited! Over the past three years I have taught several Fundamental Workshops and always felt like I was on the right track however I still felt like I wanted/needed something more. The tools that you presented have given me complete confidence in my teaching. I came to the realization that I was giving WAY to much information, too many details. Once I simplified, it was like I was speaking another language. I just wanted to say thank you from my heart and know what you do is appreciated! I look forward to more trainings with you in the future.” – Danielle GentilcoreRead More Testimonials
