How This Training Works
Embodied Wisdom YTT was a life changing experience. It not only teaches you so much about becoming a teacher, but the growth as an individual is immense. It was an experience that will impact the rest of my life and the learnings both as a yoga teacher and person are invaluable. The teachers were amazing, helpful, wise and always encouraging. The sangha that developed with this group was incredible and developed friendships that will likely last a lifetime. The YTT manual was well planned and the curriculum every weekend was well thought out and it is evident how much time and effort the teaching team puts into planning these days for us. The training was organized, efficient and every task and exercise we did was valuable and carefully planned. The teachers were professional yet empathetic and kind. I always looked forward to each weekend at YTT, getting so much personally from each chakra weekend and the learnings offered. This has truly been the most amazing/wonderful experience of my adult life! - Laura Young
