WHAT OUR GRADUATES ARE SAYING...
"The Lotus Pond Teacher Training experience was truly life-changing. I came into my YTT wanting to deepen my practice, explore yoga philosophy, learn how to teach, and connect with my inner guidance and the wisdom of my body. It was a journey of deep inner transformation that touched on all of these intentions and reached into every aspect of my life. Val and the lead teachers truly live their yoga, and this program is built on a strong foundation of the Eight Limbs, truly honoring yoga's roots. Our study included philosophy, asana, meditation, Ayurveda, pranayama, the koshas, the chakras, the language of yoga, anatomy, alignment, inclusivity + liberation, the sutras, the Bhagavad Gita, creating a class, and strong cueing. It was such a warm space and safe, connected community, especially in the time of the pandemic. The Pond prioritized our safety during in-person gatherings and expertly adapted to the times by creating high-quality online content when we couldn't meet in person. Each of our teachers had unique expertise and beautiful energy, and I am so grateful to have learned from such high caliber teachers who are truly radiant souls. I would highly recommend this YTT to anyone who is wanting to take the next step on their yoga journey." - Jenn Gaudreau
"The Lotus Pond has been a great experience for my 200hr YTT. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is searching for a company that gives a thorough training and makes everyone feel like they are truly getting what they paid for. Even with the challenges of COVID-19 and having to do the majority of my training online, I never felt like I was missing out or that the training was lacking." - Nicole Singleton
"The Lotus Pond Teacher Training Program exceeded my expectations during a national pandemic. I have the confidence to teach others the wonderful gift of yoga. I gained mind and body wellness strategies which continue to improve my quality of life and I look forward to sharing these with the students I am blessed to teach." - Amy Waterman
"I highly recommend the Lotus Pond for any YTT! They are professional, organized, engaging, and creative with their teaching. The pandemic hit halfway through our training and they worked extra hard to make sure each and every one of us felt confident in the material we were learning and teaching back. They are a great example of figuring out creative ways to work through unforseen hurdles. They also continue to support us, even after graduation. I cannot praise them enough as a school and community. Again, I highly recommend!" - Flora Uragallo
"I couldn't have made a better choice for my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training. Val Spies has created a beautiful and sacred space that feels inclusive to all. She has designed a comprehensive training program that includes the philosophy, the history and anatomy of yoga. I gained so much more than what I thought I signed up for! Each of the teachers brings a wealth of knowledge and experience and teaches in a supportive way. Additionally, hours of practice teach-backs are gently woven throughout the training, giving students the opportunity to build their skills and find their teaching voice, so by the end of the program I felt confident to teach my own yoga class!" - Antonia Gravink
