Testimonials for Yoga Academy International

This yoga training really allowed me to love myself in a way I’ve never done before. This training is truly an amazing practice that digs deep into your emotional, physical, and spiritual self, and in the midst of everything you realize it is all about being okay with everything that you are. I couldn’t have done any of this without Lauren and her amazing team. I highly recommend this training, not because I took it (I loved it), but because Yoga Academy International is determined to raise the bar of yoga teacher training! Thank you! Namaste
