Yin Yoga Teacher Training Testimonials

Sally Gable, Counsellor
Thank you, Bernie and Diana. It exceeded my expectations on every level. I am so grateful to have been part of it. It will be one of the best memories of lockdown for me in years to come. I am not a yoga teacher, I just enjoy yoga, and this course was, nonetheless, off-the-charts great for me. Bernie is one of the most gifted teachers I have ever had the pleasure of learning from: he was able to break down complicated topics succinctly and memorably. The anecdotes and examples he gave throughout made the teachings much more fun and accessible. It is truly a gift to be able to do that and maintain boundaries and keep the training moving with so many people and questions. Thanks again.

Bronwyn Steinberg, Yoga Teacher and Theatre Artist

Thank you so so so much to Bernie, Diana, Nathalie, and the whole team for sharing your knowledge, wisdom, and expertise. I have expended a lot of energy during this pandemic, trying to create and offer opportunities to connect with others both artistically and through yoga online. And I am finding it exhausting. It felt so good to be taken care of for a week, rather than being the one who is doing her best to offer some digital nurturing. I so deeply appreciate the incredible amount of work and energy output our week together must have taken, and I am so grateful to have had a chance to refill my well a bit. And to my fellow students, I have loved hearing your questions, reading your comments in the chat, and seeing your posts in the Facebook group. It’s so powerful to be part of a worldwide sangha.

In terms of teacher knowledge and depth of material, this course was one of the best I have taken. Both Bernie and Diana were very knowledgeable and detailed in their teachings. They broke down the material in ways that made it easy to learn and absorb. I feel my understanding of anatomy has expanded by taking this training. Bernie and Diana also connected the anatomy to the history and philosophy components of the training so that those sections made sense both within and apart from a yogic setting. Taking this training online also contributed to my positive experience. It’s not often possible for me to attend a certification training of this magnitude without having to travel. The online option provided me with an accessible way to further my career path, attain continuing education credits, and study with my teachers from home. And the fact that my teachers were able to make an online training so personable speaks volumes. I am forever grateful for this experience.
