The level of support that each teacher trainee receives is unparalleled... DO IT. You won't regret it. It will change your life!

"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.
