Testimonials from our most recent Yoga Intensive at The Front with Sarah Jane, Sammy Brown and Rebecka Cooper:

“Thank you for sharing your love for the practice and wisdom with all of us. I think you all created a safe learning environment which allowed us to playfully explore the practice in depth.”

“I liked the intense focus on anatomy, breaking down the poses into counter poses, the history of yoga…clearly you all have a huge depth of knowledge to impart.”

“Happy that I got to do my first teacher training with such a fun, comfortable group. Loved the energy and the sense of playfulness from the teachers and students. I really enjoyed the Ashtanga focus but it was also really nice that we incorporated different styles of yoga as well.”

“This teacher training has surpassed all of my expectations of what training could be…I feel prepared to take the next steps in my yoga journey. I’m super grateful for the entire experience and look forward to building upon the skill sets I’ve developed throughout the program.”

“I loved the variety of things taught. Anatomy, philosophy, history, teaching tips, chanting, etc.”

“I really appreciated the balance between the teachers, their general composure and overall love and care that was there every single day….All teachers’ depth of knowledge brought a lot of confidence in what was being learned.”

“I am so sad this training is over. I have absolutely loved spending every other weekend with everyone….I am happy that I have gained confidence in adjusting and instructing students. I loved the anatomy lab…it made my anatomy knowledge click a little more from reviewing yoga anatomy….You all had many different things to teach and points of view and I feel like I got a well rounded knowledge about philosophy, history and practice. Yoga has made my life such a better place. Thank you so much for being here for me and the rest of the class to share your knowledge. I am so grateful to you all.”
