This training was enlightening, educational, inspiring and fun. It brought spiritual awareness that changed not only my personal practice but the way I view daily life. The support, encouragement and knowledge from all of the teachers was really incredible and I met some amazing people as well. If you can take advantage of the opportunity to take the MY Advanced Studies & Yoga Teacher Training Program you will not be disappointed. Namaste.

~ Cris Gossett, Makawao, HI

This training has deeply affected my whole life, and especially my relationship with myself. A major factor of this shift was not only the vast amount of information of Yogic Philosophy but re-discovering what my dreams and goals really are. We were able to touch up on a vast amount of information and get a taste of many attractive aspects of Yoga. Maureen, my main teacher, is a shining expression of all love. She was enthusiastic, and this awakened vibration shot right into my core. I enjoyed her whole heart speaking her passion and sharing this practice. Maureen was wonderful at holding space for deepening into any area of yoga, yet her flow in the humongous subject was swift and steady. I always felt accepted, and was able to begin to heal a fear which had built up over the years about being shy and intimidated by the asana (physical postures). Thank you Makawao Yoga and all it’s teachers. I am forever grateful.

Makawao Yoga’s 200-hr Yoga Teacher Training is truly a transformational experience. Maureen’s an amazing teacher who put together an organized program that will teach anyone how to deepen their personal practice. It gave me the self confidence and knowledge it takes to teach yoga!
