“The Ihana Yoga Post Graduate teacher training has been a truly worthwhile investment. An amazing opportunity to learn from passionate and inspired teachers, experts and game-changers in their fields, who've added a next level of understanding to the practice and teachings of yoga. Just as a "next level" training should be, it's been an opportunity to re-visit and reflect on past experiences and learnings, sharing with other like-minded yogis, breaking down, deconstructing, re- assessing, being challenged in our beliefs and understanding, and then applying to practice - even if it involved going against the grain. I definitely feel like my understanding of Yoga, personal practice, as well as what and how I teach have grown immensely because of this training. I highly recommend it for all yoga teachers.”
