Teacher Training Testimonials:

"I signed up for Azitala’s Teacher Training program hoping to improve my practice due to injuries and so I could become an instructor someday, but I left with vastly more. I learned that yoga is more than a practice in calisthenics. It is a whole mind, body and soul experience that you live by, not for one hour, but for life. Yoga philosophy has given me tangible tools for life and has bolstered my Catholic faith. I learned how to perform postures correctly; their benefits, precautions and modifications. I was taught about sequencing, preparing and countering a pose based on the category and the level of the pose. I learned how to regulate my breath to calm my body and mind using different forms of breaths for my asana practice and for mediation. The training has been worth its weight in gold for my life, physically, mentally and most importantly, spiritually. I am now an instructor and it is my hope to bring yoga to those who seek it. My life is forever changed for the better thanks to Azitala’s Teacher Training Program. Thank you so much, Tanya Rice."-Kyron Christopherson

"Teacher training at Azitala studio, guided by Tanya, is conducive to busy schedules, builds upon an excellent base of yoga history, and hands on practice of poses. With the aid of diverse literature including Patanjali, Azitala teacher training opens the student's eyes to a variety of theory encouraging the student to form his/her own personal practice with amazing structural guidance. Tanya encourages the student to be an active participant in learning the background of poses, developing verbal cues for safety and instruction, as well as following a flow of yogic understanding.  I would highly recommend Tanya as a teacher trainer as well as Azitala studio to invest in diving deeper into your yoga practice, Namaste."-Wendy Gutknecht

"Tanya, with Azitala, is offering a 200/hour yoga teacher training beginning this fall.  If you're considering or have an interest in it, I would highly recommend taking the class.  Maybe you're looking to expand your personal practice and have no intention of becoming an instructor, that's okay.  You will increase your knowledge, have a better understanding of yoga, the asanas (poses), anatomy, philosophy, benefits and an overall deeper, more dedicated yoga experience.  You will not regret it.  My yoga journey began 5 years ago, I have grown in countless ways, mind, body and spirit, Namaste."-Sandie Goettl
