Celebration!

Celebration and Graduation!

“Teach what you practice, practice what you teach.” —Krshnamacharya

It is with much anticipation and celebration that we honor the men and women of our 2016 Yoga Teacher Training Course. This group will be graduating this week at our weekend retreat in Sedona hosted by the core YTT teachers of the training (Heidi Lichte, Debbie Kayatt and me)!

The retreat is always a special time for everyone. It lends to a deep culmination of these teachings which last a lifetime. Honestly we all grow so much during the training. We have such respect for all those before us that have inspired our way. As YTT faculty, we are honored to have witnessed the development, growth and evolution of these incredible teachers over this year. It is such a gift and a blessing to share these teachings.

Please join us in holding them in your hearts as they set off to offer their unique gifts and talents in teaching the practices of Yoga within their communities. We are so proud of them!

With humility and gratitude for this journey.

Mary Beth, Heidi and Debbie

What’s interesting – and liberating – is how individualized freedom is. More
