From one of our Graduates > I was amazed at both Jules and Michelle's in-depth knowledge of the body. The passion for both the body and Yoga was palpable. This course was amazing and truly life altering. I feel like I was rebuilt from the ground up and am so grateful for the time reserved for introspection. I feel like the growth that occurred is not only going to reflect on the mat in my own practice but also off the mat. The changes in my perception of both my practice and myself are profound and I will eternally be grateful. You are both amazing, Thank you so much for your guidance, your love, and sharing your passion.
---------Spring 2012 300 Hour Graduate Lara Scriba
