I went in with high hopes and expectations…… ALL were exceeded! Comprehensive course on all levels. Life changing!
This is an excellent Yoga Training. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and highly qualified. The course work is diverse, often challenging and very rewarding. I feel fully supported and prepared to begin teaching Gentle Yoga. I am very grateful to have found this Training and these instructors.
The School of Gentle Yoga offers incredible knowledge and experience in teaching and practicing yoga. The school encompasses the many layers of yoga including the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of this ancient wisdom. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a teacher training program with intention and depth. Upon graduation, I felt absolutely prepared, supported and ready to teach!
This training brought together a variety of the most talented, creative and unique yoga instructors in the area. The founder and lead teacher Dannette is exceptional at both teaching yoga and yoga theory. She has a background in communications (writing), so her manual is beautifully crafted…and she has a background as a life coach, so she leads the group dynamic effectively. The group of students became exceptionally close, partly due to the way the space was held. It was a gift to be a part of this training. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in pursuing Gentle Yoga training.
My training with The School of Gentle Yoga exceeded anything I could have imagined. Dannette is such an inspiration! As what I thought was a fairly seasoned yogini, I gained so much more depth of knowledge, expanded my understanding of yoga & left the training program with a sense of inner trust, feeling very confident & so excited about bringing the benefits of yoga to others. My own personal practice has deepened as well, & been infused with renewed joy & inspiration. Dannette was present at all levels throughout the training with such patience & wisdom. With unwavering compassion & support, she consistently encouraged me to face my fears, challenge my beliefs, & assumptions, & to truly go deep, continually stretching & learning at so many levels. Her approach through the subtle bodies, or Koshas, as entry points, allowed for an inter-related exploration of the eight limbs of yoga, with insightful & intuitive guidance in sequencing, teaching methodology & so much more. This was truly a deep personal growth experience that equally created a beautiful, solid foundation & framework from which to develop as a teacher. I looked forward to every minute of this training & am very grateful for the experience! I highly recommend.
The Gentle Yoga teacher training with Dannette was a thorough introduction to the full spectrum of yoga. I feel well prepared to teach asana with knowledge of adaptation/modifications for any practitioner. Perhaps more importantly I have come to understand that it is the integration of the physical body with the landscape of our mind and heart that together with the breath, is the key to the transformative experience of yoga. I came to see the unfolding of our subtle body through the Koshas, the Chakras, along with meditation, and the 8 Limbs of Yoga (and much more) within the philosophy of the Sutras of Patanjali. Add a day of mindfulness at the local Buddhist Monastary and the overall leadership, passion and compassion of Dannette and you have a complete opportunity to find your own path in Yoga both personally and in guiding others. ~Kathy M
