Student Reviews from 2017 Advanced Teacher’s Intensive:

“The advanced teachers intensive was a totally worthwhile experience, so much so that I would consider doing it again. So much to learn! Sara thoughtfully planned an ambitious curriculum, with generous space for practice, questions, tangents. I feel fortunate to have access to a teacher of her caliber.”

“I am grateful to have access to a teacher who is passionate and knowledgeable, who inspires me to grow as a student and as a teacher. The training helped me step away from my regular schedule, take a closer look at my teaching, and both refine and refresh how I approach the practice. If time and resources were unlimited, I would do this yearly and get a ton out of it.”

“Sara discussed the many facets and complexity of yoga and the need for professionalism among yoga teachers. Her presentations reaffirmed that continued education and expansion of skills and knowledge are essential to being a successful yoga teacher. Also, lots of information, resources, the variety of subjects discussed—all of these will help me with my own continued study of yoga and going deeper into the yoga practice. "
