What others say ...

"I just loved it. I love the energy among the group, the wonderful teachers. I noticed the progression of confidence that we all had day by day, thanks to the positive feedback. I am fascinated with all of the things I learned. I feel full of joy and gratitude. Thank you, thank you, thank you."

"The intensive program was both a spiritual and character building experience - from the beginning to the end, like an asana sequence. It is a wonderfully planned unfolding of the self."
~ Mayu, El Paso, TX

I wanted to share with you guys that I have had an amazing change since the Intensive.  I have been carrying around a lot of anger, kind of an internal fury/rage for about 9 years.  I have done my best to hide, mask, 'sweeten' my past and just lock it down...but it always crawls out every few months or so.  It is horrible to try so hard to be the best person you know how to be and then see the worst person come out.  I fought it every day as a Mom and Wife especially.  I don't know what happened in the training.  I don't remember one specific moment of change but after 9 long years my fire is just ...gone.  My husband noticed a difference right away and made a comment about a week later and again this morning about my calm and how different I seem.  My Mom said 'it's great you found a tool/way to deal with your 'fire' and I said 'no Mom I didn't.... it's just not there.'  Now this isn't to say I don't feel my normal feelings.  Not to say I don't or won't get upset, hurt, pissed at times.  But the temper I'm talking about isn't normal display of emotion…  I know that I am not fighting this devil daily.  I am just different and I didn't think it was possible!  I have been working on this problem for YEARS!!! 9 YEARS!!!  
So whatever happened, whatever was said...I am eternally thankful for my new perspective, my new understanding, my new heart. My husband gave me a hug and said 'I am so happy for you.' and I said 'no, I am happy for you and the children.'  But I am happy for all of us.  It's huge.

"I cannot recommend this program highly enough. Yoga has already been a nurturing process for me. This program embraces this belief. I took time out of my busy class schedule to come and learn some invaluable life lessons. I learned a lot about yoga and myself, and I truly cherish that."
~ K. Moore
