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

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!" Molly, Nov. 2016

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 important thing I learned from the program and it changed my life! Anne, Aug. 2016
