Testimonials:

I learned quite a lot about how to describe poses and alignment completely verbally, so that I can watch students while instructing them. We teach much better when we are seeing what’s going on in students’ bodies. I’m grateful for all the suggestions of language to use to get students into poses in a way they will understand.

– David

I think it is an awesome training with a supportive community that’s not too judgemental. I like how there are a lot of different topics (alignment, anatomy, philosophy, pranayama, etc.) It’s a very good “sample” of what’s out there. Another note: I think Siri has excellent classroom managements skills! So many different personalities here and it takes a lot of love and patience and intelligence to keep everyone engaged, encouraged and on track!
