“The YTT program at Mesa Rim helped me realize how capable I am not only of teaching with confidence but also of learning more about myself and how yoga improves my climbing and my capabilities in other activities I enjoy. Growing from this program within the large, supportive community of Mesa Rim made the experience even richer for me.”
“The Mesa Rim Yoga Teacher Training has been such an adventure! There were moments of bliss, moments of frustration, and moments of life altering knowledge that were indescribable. I feel honored to have learned so much from such a diverse group of humans who are all unique and extraordinary in their own way. I am so grateful for every experience that I had during this training and will do my best to remember these lessons forever.”
“I decided to take part in this training solely to learn more about yoga and the philosophy behind it. The training was a life-changing and one-of-a-kind experience that brought me so much more! It allowed me to create lifelong friendships in a place that I was new to and form everlasting bonds with the teachers and trainees. It sparked my interest not only in learning more about yoga but also teaching it. Mesa Rim’s approach of bringing in multiple teachers really gave me a well rounded, all inclusive training.”
“Mesa Rim’s YTT program moves you through the stages of learning by discussing what yoga really is, how to anatomically align your body, the philosophy of yoga as it applies to how you live, as well as how to further develop yourself to lead and teach. Would recommend for anyone who wants to learn more about yoga and yourself.”
