"Your training has given me the strong knowledge-base, self-confidence and comfort level that I need to teach yoga and I am very excited to start my journey down the yoga teaching path. I believe your knowledge base, creativity, and embracing teaching style is very unique and extremely successful. I can say successful because I've looked into the other students you've taught and your spirit shines through each of them.
