What makes our training different?

"By focusing so intensely on my practice for three months, the teacher training brought my physical practice to a different level; helping to focus on alignment, increase stamina and efficiency, and move with the breath. This base that I've developed has continued to carry over allowing me to get more from my current classes. Also, teacher training allowed me to deepen my practice by developing its nonphysical aspects, the ability to focus and move through my practice in a meditative state, and to take those abilities out of the studio and into the world. I now find myself using techniques such as focusing on an intention, clearing the mind, and deep breathing throughout the day. The training also introduced me to the history and philosophy of yoga which provided structure and depth to many ideas alluded to in various classes, websites, and blogs. In these ways, as a result of my teacher training, yoga has become less a workout routine and more a way of life."
