This school has been a divine experience for me. It has brought me back to my true self – this self I haven’t seen since childhood. I have grown in not only my physical form but also my spiritual and intellectual. I am better off than I was before – living my life with more intention and awareness…This school was exactly what I was looking for in my 200 hour training. You touched on everything I had questions about and you were always open to share knowledge and research things we wanted to know more about. The classes were stimulating and healing. I feel well informed and equipped to be the best yoga teacher I can be.
Attending the Yoga Teacher Training program at the Blue Lotus Yoga Studio was a life changer. The gentle but no nonsense approach of our teacher Shiva allowed us to learn all the academic requirements but more importantly grow as people becoming teachers. She provided an environment that felt safe and loving which allowed each of us as students to push our selves out of our comfort zones. Her accumulated knowledge and experience with her organized teaching style gave us a solid foundation to begin our teaching careers from. July 17, 2013
I looked forward to Shiva’s teacher training every month until those four days came around. She cares deeply about each and every student and their personal growth. She keeps an open mind and equanimity within the contrasting viewpoints of her students. Shiva creates an accepting environment free of dogma.
I loved the open, supportive, and loving environment that you created. The yoga intensives were especially challenging and motivated my personal practice and development. I thought the opportunity toward the end of the training to team-teach was a powerful teaching tool and very beneficial [...] your willingness to adapt the content and arrangement of topics was appreciated. I [now] more thoughtfully navigate my daily life; my daily meditation and yoga practice has drawn a powerful centering awareness inward.
