Online Embodied wisdom 200 hour graduate

"I feel like this training was a game-changer in my life. It nudged me in the right direction and realigned me with my purpose. I came to this training a bit lost, trying to find my place in this world, and I'm graduating from it, knowing exactly where to go and what I want to achieve in this life. Through this training I also learned how to trust the flow of life and came to understand that life will bring to me exactly what I need at the time that I need it. It is also a safe space for me to turn to, when I was going through some hard times in my personal life. And having said that it also helped cope with challenges more effectively."

Sue Johnston


"That I love teaching intuitively and from my heart. I can take the discipline of my previous training, soften it for myself, my participants, my body, mind and soul. I now have the confidence to incorporate the wisdom of yoga more authentically into my personal practice and into my offerings as a yoga teacher."

"The timing of this online training was perfect. I needed it more than I knew this year. Before this training, I would have called myself agnostic. After this training, I no longer identify with being agnostic. I feel a deep spiritual connection with the earth, plants, water, and my ancestors. I now get strength and support from my spiritual practice. This helps me navigate the struggles and challenges in life. The spiritual practices that I have developed in this training has helped me foster a safe container to hold and process my grief and trauma. This training also helped me connect with my ancestors during Yoga Nidra and that is the greatest gift I could ever receive."

Nicole Buckle


"This training has supported me in so many ways. It's been some much needed "me time" where I have had the pleasure of diving deep into truly what yoga is and how to teach it. Now I feel confident in myself that I can teach in a way that truly resonates with me and in my own way, which is such a lovely feeling. Though I've taken other YTT's. This YTT has helped me to really take my yoga practice off the mat and into my daily life."

"This training brought about a huge transformation within me. It's not an exaggeration if I say that it impacted every single aspect of my personality. I learned discipline and persistence through completing the tasks provided for us. I learned to be compassionate with myself and others, to hold space and to follow my heart. I realized how important it is to always speak the truth and to stay true to myself. I gained more trust in life and my anxiety level reduced substantially. I unveiled a part of myself that is creative, imaginative and full of new ideas. And lastly, I started to believe in myself and my own capabilities and that my ideas, my authentic self is worthy of being heard."

Leslie Campbell


"This training was perfect for me. Everything you taught me felt so intuitive and right. The training just kept getting better and better. I sometimes wonder, was I your ideal client avatar? Because this training felt like it was designed exactly for me. Maybe, because it's embodied wisdom, everyone who takes your course will feel like it was designed perfectly for them."

Real Reflections

Embodied Wisdom YTT was a life changing experience. It not only teaches you so much about becoming a teacher, but the growth as an individual is immense. It was an experience that will impact the rest of my life and the learnings both as a yoga teacher and person are invaluable. The teachers were amazing, helpful, wise and always encouraging. The sangha that developed with this group was incredible and developed friendships that will likely last a lifetime. The YTT manual was well planned and the curriculum every weekend was well thought out and it is evident how much time and effort the teaching team puts into planning these days for us. The training was organized, efficient and every task and exercise we did was valuable and carefully planned. The teachers were professional yet empathetic and kind. I always looked forward to each weekend at YTT, getting so much personally from each chakra weekend and the learnings offered. This has truly been the most amazing/wonderful experience of my adult life!  - Laura Young

Real reflections of the training

I find it hard to put into the words the best way to describe my experience.  I guess if I had to give a short answer I would say 'life changing'.  This teaching taught me so much, not just about what yoga is, but about myself and especially about others.  This course opened my eyes to a new light and I am able to witness life through a different lens.  It has also awakened a part of me that had been asleep for a while.  I have been thinking back to when I was a child.  People would say 'what do you want to be when you grow up?'  I would answer "I am not sure, but I know I want to help people".  I know now that this is the way I am going to help people!

Amanda Reed


It was the most beautiful experience, with wonderful luminous teachers, and classmates, all feeling connected and safe, a wonderful place to grow into my own skin after so many years of not being my authentic self.  It's almost indescribable. I would recommend that if you can do this, do it for yourself. You won't believe what you'll learn about yourself, or the friends you'll meet. I can not express how much this YTT has meant to me. I feel in better control of my life, and it changed me in a way I never expected. I feel Tiina and Ally are changing the world - one yoga teacher at a time. When Ally spoke of us being lit lamps - truer words were never spoken - we are all going out into the world and changing lives and perceptions with this fully lit lamp - filled with love, kindness and compassion.

Kathy Lewis 


The experience was life-changing for me. Working with such an inspiring group of people was amazing. One of the biggest challenges for me was working through my fear of not being “good enough”. The positive reinforcement we received helped me to believe in myself. The program was more involved and more challenging than I expected and this, again, was good for me and allowed me no room for complacency. The faculty was highly skilled and varied. Although I am only beginning my journey as a yoga teacher, I am amazed at how prepared I feel to develop my teaching skills compared to how I felt at the beginning.
