OmBodies Yoga Teacher Training Testimonials

Sporty young woman doing yoga practice isolated on white background - concept of healthy l

"If you’re serious about teaching yoga, OmBodies is the way to go. I went into my 200-hour teacher training thinking I had a good grip on the practice, but Heather expanded my mind into brand new directions. Her attention to detail is apparent in every aspect of the training - I left with more anatomy knowledge than I ever thought possible and a deeper respect for the history and philosophy of the practice. One of the best parts about her 200-hour program: you leave with several hours of teaching already under your belt. Meaning, you feel more prepared to spread your wings and build classes after graduation! OmBodies doesn’t just teach you the basics, she helps you become a life-long learner. Because of her training, I am able to think critically while researching yoga topics and I am better prepared to analyze asana and modify for different student populations. I’m continuing my yoga education with OmBodies’ advanced teacher training program, and I’m finding the same of level dedication. OmBodies Yoga Teacher Training is

top-notch and geared toward serious yoga teachers and practitioners!"
