Training Testimonial – More than the Mat

The Yoga Teacher Training is more than learning to teach yoga in your full light.  It is more than taking everything on the mat to a new level.  It is also about taking the feeling you get from your mat and expanding that into infinite areas of your life.  Here is a testimonial I just received….

I enrolled in Teacher Training with the intention of deepening my personal yoga practice. With each module my personal practice is intensifying and my understanding of how to properly engage and align has brought every pose to an entirely new level.  Even mountain pose can now be an exploration of my body’s connectivity, strength and brightness. I was pleased to find that many lessons we learn on the mat are incredibly helpful to every day life and work – a cultivation of skills that often do not receive much formal attention – such as intuition and presence. Even more surprising, now that I am half way through, my intention of this training has expanded to include bringing the love of practice to others through teaching!

Training Testimonial

I already instruct yoga classes, but have chosen to continue my studies with Alex Pfeiffer, and find most of the information in his training to be new, advanced, and extremely beneficial in refining my teaching skills.

Alex has an incredible ability to create a safe space and trust among the students in his teacher training.  I look forward to seeing the people I train with, as we have become a close and loving community. Sometimes I wish every weekend was yoga teacher training weekend!  I am an active person, and Alex offers an education that I can incorporate into all of my movements, whether it is yoga, soccer, swimming, or biking.  His approach to alignment is one that helps the student find their brightest expression of the pose, and I have never felt as alive as where Alex guides me in my yoga practice. If you have hit a wall in your practice, or just want to take things deeper, this training takes you there.  And if you are seriously considering teaching yoga, you will leave this training feeling well equipped with knowledge of the human body and well practiced in guiding your students through some amazing yoga classes.
