“Life changing, pure and simple. This certification was so much more than just ‘learning how to teach yoga’. Beyond being given an invaluable training experience, I found a loving, supportive and often times hilarious community of lifelong friends. I did the training to become a yoga teacher, but beyond that I found a path to a rich and rewarding personal practice. “
-Joe D.

“I would enthusiastically recommend the now:yoga teacher training to anyone interested in deepening their yoga practice or embarking on a teaching career. I started off unsure if I wanted to teach, but after completing the 200 hour course I felt encouraged and confident to pass on the gift of yoga to others and have been teaching ever since. I liked the one (intense!) weekend per month format because it meant minimal time away from my family plus I had a whole month to process and absorb the material. I was excited to go to every session and amazed at how much information we covered on the physical practice, the philosophical and spiritual roots of yoga, and the nuts and bolts of teaching. My notebook is full and will serve me for many years. Together Edward, Frank and Joe brought abundant experience, sensitivity, humor and warmth to the training while creating a fun, non-judgmental space to explore and experiment. Edward, Frank and Joe have a profoundly serious dedication to the craft of teaching yoga and I am forever grateful for their time with us.”
