“The training was all amazing! I can't wait to go deeper if Ally decides to do more trainings in the future. As someone that's worked in education for decades, I have a deep passion for pedagogy and understanding how curriculum, courses, programs are designed pedagogically. This training far exceeded my expectations in terms of the content of each module and the support provided throughout, to help us deeply engage with the learnings that are as much about personal work as they are about learning how to guide others through a yoga nidra.”
