Testimonials from past graduates
"I will be forever thankful for this YTT experience and for the teachers I had that have so much knowledge. This is a place you can come and practice and learn and be yourself and has provided St. George with so much community. You know that when you come into this place you are not going to be met with any judgment. It is a place you can enjoy and express who you are. I am proud of myself, and I am proud of my teachers, this training was amazing."
"Yoga Via was the perfect fit for me. I had looked into other training programs but when I found this one I knew it was meant to be. The small class size was a huge plus! I loved our guest teachers and found Jenny to be so encouraging, genuine, and knowledgeable. This training truly went beyond the physical element of yoga and encompassed everything I love about yoga as a whole."
"Three words that I would use to describe the experience are enlightening, empowering, and humbling. This experience challenged me to develop a discipline in my life and also inspired me to create a space where I could honor and recognize my own strengths and potential and invite others to do the same for themselves. In this journey I was able to work with some talented and wonderful teachers with a wealth of knowledge and background in the Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Yin styles of Yoga. I also gained experience and knowledge around meditation, breathwork, cold immersion, and the philosophy of Yoga. The 200 Hour YTT allowed me to deepen my own practice. It also gave me a safe space where I can show up as myself and engage in the process of self discovery while being surrounded by a supportive environment of like minded individuals who are also working on themselves."
"The 200-hour Yoga training program at Yoga Via was transformative for my mind and body. I had been practicing yoga for about a decade and never considered teaching until becoming an active member of their studio. This program allowed me to deepen my own practice and learn about the philosophy of Yoga while making new friends along the way. The teachers are so welcoming and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to become a Yoga Alliance registered teacher or to anyone who wants to deepen their practice."
"Doing yoga here and meeting the teachers drew me in to this training. It was more than I imagined it would have been. I grew so much in my practice, not only physically but mentally and emotionally as well. We all felt like a little family by the end of it. It was so rewarding to see my new friends progress and grow in their practice. The teachers and this studio created a safe place to learn and grow, I am so grateful my yoga journey started here.”
