Testimonials from Trainees

“I never thought that a person like me who is so scared of being in front of an audience and having all eyes on me could ever teach a class, but you made it possible.  You are and you will remain a Yoga Teacher of my life.”  ~Julia

“I would highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to teach yoga.  I feel extremely well trained, even better than some of the other instructors that I’ve taken classes from.  The most valuable part of the training for me was the knowledge of sequencing.  I can modify and create classes to bring some variety to yoga practitioners and to create a great yoga class for anyone for 60 – 90 minutes.” ~Robin

“The most valuable part of the training for me was the immediate practice teaching and constant hands-on assisting along with good feedback and support.  I would highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to learn how to teach from/with love and freedom.” ~ Chris

“I highly recommend this training to anyone.  There’s no fluff at this training… ‘teaching people and not just poses.’  It can’t get any more real than that.  I love that Nikki was the main teacher instead of having a bunch of guest lecturers. Nikki knew how to get us out of our heads when things got confusing or rough.  Nikki is such a great teacher and inspiration.  I am so honored to have been her student.  The transformation and growth I experienced in 6 weeks was so life changing.  The inner journey is a great part of why I did the training. I am a better person, wife, friend, mom and student because of all the truth we learned about ourselves.  She definitely pushes you out of your comfort zone because she sees the goodness in each student especially when we could not see those qualities in ourselves.” ~Joyce

“Thank you Nikki for being in my life.  I am a very grateful student of yours.”  ~Sarah

“The training was so much more than I expected.  What I gained most out of the training is that perfection is not the goal and being present in a class is an art.  I also learned so much about myself that has propelled me to take the first steps towards forgiveness.  I love Nikki’s no bullshit approach.  I can’t believe how steady she was in supporting everyone in our worst and best moments.  I knew I gave her a few stomach aches but there she was, didn’t give up on me. Her interactive teaching style and methodology blows razing lectures and pompous displays right out of the water.”  ~Lilia

“This is the best program ever.  The most valuable part of it was the personal growth I had, the assisting skills and the practice teaching sessions.  I felt confident to teach a safe and effective class right after the training.” ~Alexandra

“This training was more than I could imagine.  I actually didn’t know what to expect.  there was so much knowledge and guidance.  In my opinion, this training was so complete.  Understanding the anatomy was and is so vital to a yoga practice.  The assignments truly went hand-in-hand with the anatomy and understanding yoga beyond asana was so enlightening.  My intent was to develop a home practice and the knowledge and understanding I obtained from this training has more than prepared me to work on a home practice.  The interesting take away is that my commitment to having a home practice allowed me to be more forgiving of myself when I can’t make it to class. This program is a plus whether you decide to teach or not.  The in-depth information and knowledge you receive is applicable IMMEDIATELY and the understanding of the many layers of myself, knowing what makes me tick and maybe not tick is so revealing.” ~Patricia King
