"I just completed my RYT-500 hrs teaching training/yoga therapy back in January this year  in Hamilton and this training is great. I did a lot of research prior signing up for this program and I am so glad I did this training and not others. I highly recommend this program to you all." - Cecilia Lau, Registered Nurse, Yoga Teacher, Vancouver BC
"I just want to thank you for offering everything you do...I think you are doing a superb job at helping create authentic, informed and strong yoga therapists!! So far the yoga therapy trainings have opened myself and my career into areas that I thought were only possible through university schooling... so I'm really thankful to have found a path that allows me to help people in a holistic way and again thank you for continuing to offer and develop your yoga therapy training(s)." Natalie Rocheleau, 2013
"I must say firstly Karen, Thank-you for being a memorable mentor & teacher. By spreading my learning adventure over an extended period of time allowed me to digest the knowledge acquired each session & discover where it fits into my teachings. For me this has proven to be the best, most effective learning tool. I honestly use the knowledge gained each session within days of returning home because I am so curious to see the impact." Heather Clarke, Rehabilitation Therapist, 2013.
"Dear Karen, First, I'd like to say that it has taken me most of this year to realize just how much I learned and grew from the training last summer. Thank you for that most awesome experience. One of the surprising things that has resulted is that I now have a flourishing small Yoga Therapy business. I was really doing the course for personal reasons. But when I did the practicum [3 clients] that I sent to you as part of my homework, one person recommended another. And so on. I have been involved with different clients on a continuous basis ever since, and I find it incredibly rewarding. Thank you. Namaste, Ella" - Ella Ferland 2011
