Testimonials

“I’ve taken a variety of yoga classes for a number of years and at some point, probably in the midst of wobbling in Virabhadrasana III with eagle arms, I thought, ok what now? There’s got to be more behind balancing on one leg than just getting through it… it was then that I decided to fulfill my curiosity and find a deeper understanding by studying yoga. Well, I knew enough to realize I needed teachers. Nurture Soul felt right to me – its mission and foundation are based on traditional principles is for anyone to experience a state of well-being. Nurture Soul’s standards and quality curriculum are unmatched. Our kula got us through, many hugs, high-fives, and we did the work! I feel confident and prepared to share my practice… I’ve changed in a profound and rewarding way. And in case you’re wondering, there really is something behind that Vira III and it’s so much more than just “getting through it!” I am forever grateful and honored to have been a student of such a knowledgeable, seasoned professional faculty of true yogis and part of a very special kula.”
– Emi Johnson

“I believe the main strength of the IYT training was the group of teachers assembled to present the material. From the asana teaching essentials, anatomy, both gross and subtle, to Yogic philosophy and history, to Ayurveda, to the Sutras and the Gita, the teachers were all obviously very experienced, committed, talented and inspiring.”
– Mary Kay

“The faculty (all of them are top notch) were so patient and kind. Their knowledge was mind-blowing and every one of them seem very real and down to earth-they practice what they preach, no ego here! So refreshing in this crazy, commercial yoga world!”
– Mary P

“So THIS is yoga! I knew there was so much more to it, I just couldn’t find the right teachers…found them! This yoga teacher training transformed me and opened up such a beautiful new path for me. The philosophy, Ayurveda, Literature, practical anatomy, the study of the energy body…I was enthralled the whole time-the training just seemed to fly by…The faculty are AMAZING-you guys Rock!”
– Catherin
