“Count me in!”

Hear from some of our students

Out of my experience during this wonderful training, I have grown in all ways. I am better prepared to offer my love and skill, in all areas of life, as a service and contribution. I now have the confidence and skill to support others in the practice of yoga, which is a huge privilege. Maybe more importantly, I have grounded and shaped my personal commitment to the practice of yoga. I found community, guidance, challenge and growth in my training. The difference this training made in my life is unforgettable, so dear and worth every bit of effort. Thank you,Thank you!!

Axis yoga brought me back into myself again. The teaching program not only strengthen my awareness of the global reach of yoga but also honored my gifts as a teacher and scholar of contemplative practice and African healing traditions. The training helped to revitalize my spirit! The teaching program helped me align my spiritual values with a mind and body connection and invited me to live more fully into my purpose, and find new meaning in life. The value of the Axis Yoga is incredible. If you are looking for a boost in life a new way to revitalize your practice, and clarity on your purpose and meaning in life, you’ve found it!

I decided to enroll in Axis Yoga’s program because I have been teaching yoga for three years and wanted a registered 200 hour yoga alliance training. The program was more than I could have ever hoped for! I wanted something that was true classical yoga. Beyond just asana. This program delivered! My own personal practice grew immensely as well as my technique as a teacher. The classical hatha yoga teachings were just what I needed.

Participating in Axis Yoga’s training was one of the most enriching and rewarding experiences for me. My knowledge of yoga has expanded so much and this program has helped build a foundation upon which my practice will continue to evolve. Each teacher was so caring and committed and their dedication alone was quite inspiring. Yoga, because of this training, has become so much more spiritual to me and more profound in my life. I don’t believe you can partake in this program without experiencing a sense of self-evolution – physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

First off, thank you so much for the intensive: the knowledge and experience you have given me was the foundation I needed to actively pursue my spiritual journey. The program was an opportunity to deepen my experiential knowledge of Yoga, from the introspective work of meditation and pranayama to the physical reformation of asana. The community that was born from the intensive was the quintessence of the program and through the support of the teachers and student I was able to develop my personal, integrated practice of yoga. Without the guidance of Derik, Brenna, Susan and friends from the program, none of this would have been possible. Thank you my dearest mentors.

I have evolved personally by becoming more aware of yoga practices aside from just asana.  I have cultivated a daily meditation practice.  I have been exposed to (and loved!) chanting.  I have challenged many of my previously held ideas and beliefs about yoga and life. Any yogi with a desire to deepen their own practice or become a teacher would benefit from this program.  The instructors are amazing!
