It never crossed my mind that I would want to be a yoga teacher until I went to One Down Dog. I was working 10+ hour days, miserable in my job when I first heard about teacher training. I realized I needed a change and it was never going to be the “right” time. Before I started teacher training, I felt stuck in my job. In teacher training, we learned about goal setting. Early on in our training, we set lofty goals for ourselves. I wrote down what I wanted to be doing for a living and what I dreamed of. A week before training ended, I landed the job I envisioned. You could say it was a coincidence, but I don’t think so. If it wasn’t for training and my new way of thinking, I never would have scored the interview. Training helped me further my practice, I am stronger than I ever, inside and out. I would recommend teacher training to anyone who is curious, wants a change or wants a challenge. The experience is different for everyone. What will yours be?Hallie A.
I highly recommend the One Down Dog Teacher Training. I have been practicing yoga for years and teacher took my practice and understanding of yoga to the next level. It is an extremely welcoming and supportive community and provides the perfect environment for personal growth. It’s not just about yoga, it’s about life!Maureen C.
When Jessica, the owner of the studio, announced they were doing a teacher training, I jumped at the chance to immerse myself in all things yoga. Over 6 months, I met with the group and learned so much about everything from philosophy to pranayama to ayurveda. I have learned so much and have an even deeper appreciation for both the practice and the teachers at this studio! Anyone who is interested in learning more about yoga and possibly teaching yoga should sign up for their next training!Taylor B.
