    Teacher Testimonial

    “As a recent graduate I wanted to take a moment to share about my Teacher Training experience at Drishti Power Yoga. My Teacher Training journey began with the goal of deepening my individual physical practice and learning more about Yoga beyond the Asana poses. To my pleasant surprise over the months of training it evolved into a journey not only of self-discovery but strongly wanting to share the multiple gifts of the practice with others as a teacher. The training was transformative on many levels. Each training weekend we were challenged to journey deeply into our own power. The lead teachers gave selflessly of their time, experiences, and vast knowledge to provide a thorough and well rounded training. They motivated, encouraged, and supported us every step of the way. The support of my fellow trainees during this process was priceless. Valuable friendships grew and we looked forward to watching each other grow as individuals and teachers throughout the months. Reflecting now, I am so grateful I jumped out of my comfort zone and took this leap. I could not have imagined doing my first training anywhere else. I am always reminding myself one of the very first things we learned in training, to trust the process each step of the way. Many thanks to the Drishti Power Yoga Teacher training team of 2014-2015!”
