"Lorraine- I don't know exactly how or when I went from being a nervous wreck about teaching to feeling totally confident, but I owe it all to you (and our other amazing teachers of course). Somehow you worked your magic all throughout teacher training and I came out feeling so prepared and ready to teach. Although I'm sure you hear it the all the time, I wanted to remind you how awesome you are and thank you for all of your hard work." - 2015 Teacher Training Graduate

“Making the decision to commit to the Teacher Training Program at LPY was one of the best decisions I have ever made. While I entered the program with the sole intention of deepening my own practice, I realized by graduation that I did, in fact, want to share my practice with others, that I did want to teach. Not only did the Teacher Training Program at LPY help me connect to my own practice in a way that I hadn't been able to before, it also prepared me to teach. I am working as a yoga teacher at two studios, teaching 60, 75 and 90 minute Vinyasa classes as well as a 75 minute Relax and Renew. The Teacher Training Program at LPY more than prepared me to take on the exciting opportunities and challenges of teaching yoga, of sharing my practice with a wide variety of students... I am forever grateful for my time in Teacher Training at LPY and can't find the words to adequately express how full my heart is...” - 2014 Teacher Training Graduate
