Testimonials About This Yoga Teacher Training
— Amy Wolff, 500-Hour Yoga Medicine Teacher —
“After recovering from a hip surgery I had at the age of 36, I was afraid that my days of practicing yoga might be over. This training saved my practice and changed my entire perspective on how I teach hip stability and safety in my yoga classes. This training should be a requirement for all yoga teachers! Amazing content and quality.”
