    “The Curvy Yoga certification has deepened my teaching by giving me concrete tools to ensure that my classes are body-affirming and my cues are appropriate to the actual bodies in the room. As a result, I see my students opening to challenges, trusting their capabilities, listening to their instincts, and connecting to their bodies again. I hear about their renewed dedication to self-care and a lessening of negative self-talk. I have witnessed a strong sense of community in my Curvy Yoga classes, and I have gained confidence in my presence and voice as a teacher." -Susan Weiner

    "Everything changed after completing Curvy Yoga Teacher Training. In my own practice yoga shifted from perfecting the poses to paying attention to my body and accepting where I am today. I am inspired and excited to teach yoga. My hope is to give each student space to have their own experience, not mine." -Lorriana Lee-Knapp

  • krissie

    "In Curvy Yoga Teacher Training I gained the knowledge of how to work with my body to create shapes that are both energizing and restful. I then learned how to teach and cue while encouraging self-reflection and self-adjustments so that my students create the same connections with their bodies. My CYTT experience did not end with my certificate. Anna, Liz, and my CYTT cohort continue to be a source of encouragement and feedback in my teaching practice. Curvy Yoga Teacher Training gave me both the skills and the passion to bring yoga to people that think yoga isn't for them." -Krissie Bentley
