“My 300 hour YTT experience was like nothing I expected. I was focused on learning about the asana practice, the “teachings” of yoga and meeting new people, finding a sense of community during my 200 hour YTT. Little did I know that signing up for the 300-hour would forever change my perspective and me. This year has led me to accept who I am and be happy with about that, reach for who I want to be and not feel ashamed and better yet surround myself with those who love and respect me. This experience has brought acknowledgement of my behavior and actions to surface with a better understanding of why I am the way I am. I have found comfort in myself and am at ease with the outside world that surrounds me because of where I have been guided throughout this training. Yoga is not just about asana, teaching the most profound class and wearing the cutest yoga leggings. It’s about the mind, the body and the internal force that connects us to each other. We’re all just humans, making our pathway through this life. I am forever grateful for Ashley, the Yoga Loft and my fellow peers for leading me that much closer to mine.”

“I am so extremely grateful to have been able to take part in this 300 hour training program at the Yoga Loft. Over the past year, I feel as though my thought patterns and perceptions of the world have changed drastically for the better along with the skillful and detailed instruction in yoga philosophy, asana, meditation, pranayama, and communication skills comprising this program. A variety of highly skilled and specialized instructors were included across the year giving us very detailed and advanced skills in each of these areas deepening our personal practice and enriching our teaching skills. When I finally began to teach yoga regularly toward the end of this year-long training, I found myself bursting with ideas for yoga sequences every week and equally able to modify a class on the spot to meet my students’ needs. I continue to feel excited to address the challenge of making yoga asana accessible to all types of bodies because I have the training and knowledge to do so successfully!”
