Chris, you are an amazing teacher and inspiration! I’m glad I made the time to just be a part of this training.The knowledge I’ve gained is incredible. Thank you for starting such an awesome and affordable teacher training class in Hamilton. Parth, Sept 2017

 Chris  is a wonderful, down to earth yogi, full of passion with distinct style. This journey has allowed me to explore a deeper sense of self I’ve never touched before. Thanks to Karma Yoga and training in nature I have come closer to the unique blessings Yoga has to offer. It has improved my Yoga practice physically and mentally and brought my inner voice closer to a spiritual path. The group was amazing and the energy was truly supportive and nurturing. I can’t wait to share and explore more avenues of Yoga and keep the energy alive as I take it further into my life and teachings. Namaste  Cynthia, Sept. 2017
 
'I thoroughly enjoyed my training with Karma Yoga in Dundas, Ontario!  We had a really great class size that was very conducive to interactive and practical learning.  We got to enjoy almost all of our classes outside, either in a nearby park, or a short drive away to one of several beautiful nature reserves. I had no idea Dundas was so beautiful! Chris was a great, passionate instructor that I hope to meet again for YTT500! ' Alli, Sept 2017
 
"I had a great time during my YTT training with Karma yoga this past August. I loved learning and practice my skills in a fun and relaxed environment. I met amazing people in my class. I really enjoyed learning and working with Chris!! I look forward to continuing  and growing on my yoga journey." Mel, Sept, 2017
 

'Karma Yoga Teacher Training was the most affordable studio in town and fit it well with my schedule, so I chose to do the teacher training as a self-development project. I did the intensive 4 week program which just flew
by!...The group class was small and personalized and Chris was always available for individual attention if you needed any. I loved learning all the philosophy behind yoga and days went by very quickly as there was a lot of information to be taught. Thanks Chris and Karma' Yoga for this wonderful experience! Val,  June 2017

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