"I'm so glad that I chose UPY for my Teacher Training"

Within the first hour of UPY teacher training, I knew my life was about to change. I could've never imagined the profound impact that this experience would have on me—from a deeper understanding of the practice and myself, to the bonds formed with the teachers and the other trainees. It is hard to put into words how grateful I am for this training.

-Jessica, 200-Hour Teacher Training Graduate

The UPY Teacher Training really focused on building confident teachers. I feel prepared for anything in my yoga career! Now I'm teaching yoga at multiple studios and I love it! Sharing yoga with others is so rewarding and fulfilling. I am forever grateful for my teacher training experience."
