"The yoga teacher training is informative, fun, and a wonderful experience. I learned a lot about yoga as a whole, and my own personal practice."  A. Benacquista,  Apr. 2017

"My experience with Karma Yoga Teacher Training has been very uplifting and made me feel more confident to be able to teach yoga. I learned a lot about asanas and their benefits as well as the history of Yoga...I feel very happy that I chose Karma Yoga for my teacher training and I can't wait to teach more in the future"  L. Alcaraz-Sehn, Dec. 2016

"Karma Yoga is such a loving environment. The studio is warm and cozy and the teachers are great! The yoga teacher training was awesome, I learned so much!" M. McQuaid, Nov. 2016

"The yoga teacher training program was a perfect balance of fun and quality teaching. Just loved the program" R. Scott, Aug. 2016

"Their yoga teacher training program was great; it covered the basics of teaching yoga with the added component of forcing (all the students in the program) us to find our true real reasons of why we wanted to be yoga teachers. I feel that was the most import thing I learned from the program and it changed my life!" A. Boyle,  Aug. 2016

How Is Our Teacher Training Program Different Than Other Teacher Training Program Offered?
One of the biggest complaints about most yoga teacher training programs is that there is not enough practical experience; aside to offering very affordable programs - with added values like included mentorship, scholarships for every program we run - our programs are an equal balance of theory and practice.  To graduate from any of our programs each student must complete a set number of Karma Hours (practical hours) through one of our  community yoga programs.
