Power Pack Feedback from last summer’s intensive:

“Loving, safe and secure learning environment with phenomenal instructors!”

“I felt included, heard and respected throughout. The attention spent on incorporating heart values was awesome.”

“Squeezing 4 actual kids classes into 2 weeks-wow!”

“The information about how to include all populations was useful and inspiring-and not only inclusive but finding ways to benefit and help all groups in a sensitive way that empowers and respects.”

“The lesson plans and United States of You curriculum are really cool and I’m way excited about it.”

“Going through this process I have grown as an individual and as a teacher. The training has been filled with very relevant knowledge, and through group activities and discussions, I have become very connected with the other teachers. Thank you for providing a space that’s comfortable to express ideas, thoughts and emotions.”

“You guys have a positive environment to learn in.”

“You guys gave me some things I can use for a lifetime to keep myself grounded.”

“I think the real life experience teaching yoga allowed me to be confident teaching it now on my own at my school.”

“The intensive was very informative and very well planned. The information was presented in a non-threatening format that was relatable and easy to understand.”

I learned so much about yoga, my body, children, and how to teach them. The flow of the training was good and the instructors are very knowledgable and informative. I enjoyed this experience. Thanks for this life gift.”

“Earlier in the summer, if possible! Maybe June”
