I’m so grateful I chose to do my teacher training with Full Circle Yoga School. We had amazing teachers, each with their own facets of expertise that meshed beautifully together. After finishing this training I felt completely confident teaching my first classes. The open atmosphere of this training allowed for our group to tune into deep physical, emotional, and spiritual levels - I know every one of us left that training expanded in body, mind, and soul. We definitely tuned into the true core of yoga, while still learning the practicals of applying it as a teacher. If you’re considering a yoga teacher training: these are the people, this is the place, and now is the time to do it. It will enrich your understanding of yourself, deepening your experience in every moment after, while giving you the means to share this open space with others and cultivate real connections.
An unexpected spiritual Yoga Journey, which is absolutely a beautiful experience. You are not forced to feel spirituality but find your own way to take part into the whole group. Choosing to take this training is the best decision I've ever made ~ I feel so honored and so blessed that I got the chance to know each person during this training. I feel so refreshed and being transform into a better, lighter, brighter person, full of energy, not afraid of unknown future, just enjoy being present. LIFE-CHANGING, Truly!
Where to begin?I thought I would leave this training today saying 'that was the hardest thing I have ever done'.I can instead express it was the greatest, most joyous, deepest, challenging, phenomenal exploration. A full breakdown of barriers, coupled with the laying of new foundations.Time sped up and slowed down simultaneously and an intense vortex of learning, loving, and laughter ensued!The diversity accompanying the education is incomparable to any educative experience I have had before and surpassed all expectations. I keep wondering how I can fully communicate the experience to others in 'just' words- if only other people could just feel my emotions!I feel held and supported and believe my journey with these teachers has just awoken and taken its first baby steps. A beautiful feeling of continuity rather than ending.I will be spreading your message and your light and I respect every element of each of you personally, the way in which you interact with the world and the way that you teach.Keep in touch my sister and brother and teachers and friends.
I am so grateful you guys have us teach the free class to the public down there. It gets all the first-time jitters out. I start teaching next week & I'm not so afraid because I've already done it. I appreciate you. With every atom and cell in my body, & fiber of my DNA. You guys changed my life.
To my dear Teachers, THANK YOU! For guiding me through training, creating a safe and loving space for me to transform and opening your life journey to include me. I hope this message conveys my gratitude and love for you. I am journeying forth with a deeper yoga practice, a new skill set, limitless abundance, and unconditional love.
Full Circle Yoga School went way above and beyond expectations in helping me reach my dream of becoming a yoga teacher. I recommend this school to everyone looking to change their lives both in and out of the yoga room. At the age of 48 I decided to follow my dream of becoming a yoga instructor. I figured after having three children who are all out of school now it was time for “Mom”. So I enrolled in the School for the 200-hour YTT. I just wanted to teach yoga poses to students - pretty simple right? Well there was so much more and I had to really dig deep, much deeper than ever before. The facilitators could not have been more amazing through every step of my spiritual journey – yes, spiritual! Not just yoga postures! I had always put myself last at everything, for as long as I could remember. I literally had no love or appreciation for myself. After three of the most OMazing weeks of my life (no exaggeration) I found a new Michelle who could even repeat these three words and mean it: I AM LOVE! I continue to work hard embracing this new life, this new spirituality both in and out of the yoga room. I am still in contact everyday with all of my yoga sisters and if I ever have a question, or a problem I know my teachers are a phone call away. I am grateful beyond words for my yoga family. I embrace each day, each moment, with love, compassion, and gratitude. I look forward to the next 48 years Michelle Smith, Proud Graduate.
My classes are going amazing! I wake up every day feeling so grateful to be doing what I love. And the fact that I have the courage to sing a mantra at the end of all my classes still wows me! Considering in high school I would rather fail a project or class than have to present anything! I'm so happy to be sharing my life practice with others. It's so fulfilling! And that everything that used to hold me back has just fallen away is incredible. I have developed such a trust in the ways of the universe. And I talk all the time about how blessed I am to have received my training at Full Circle. You prepared me sooo much to start teaching right away. And not just teaching, but how to teach from my heart. In a way that is real to me. Of course, I was always passionate about yoga asanas, but I really developed a love for it all during Yoga Teacher Training. The spirituality has become such a central part of my life. I stuck with the vegan, gluten free, mostly organic lifestyle. And meditation. Which has changed my life so much. Being able to watch the way my mind works in difficult situations is amazing! And then being able to control my reactions to things. And having this knowing that whatever is going on outside of me doesn't determine my happiness. I feel so much less anxiety and fear. I could literally go on and on. But really this is my journey right now because of the part that you played in my spiritual and yogic development. And I want you to know that that is the effect you have on students. That's how much you can change someone's life. You forever have my gratitude and love!
There aren't words to fully express my experience and the gratitude I feel for what I learned and am able to share with others now, but here are my comments from the heart. Words that come to mind about my YTT training are wonderful, enlightening, supportive, heartfelt, passionate, engaging, fun, and growth-filled. Our trainers were like none I have ever had in my past, and the ones I’d always longed for. Their support, encouragement, and knowledge far exceeded my expectations for this training, and spread to each of us like a beautiful warm fire that ignited our souls while combining it with the cool calming sounds of their musical talents and voices. They helped me to open doors of growth that had been closed to me in the past, while having fun all along the way, even on the most challenging of days. I not only grew in my physical knowledge about yoga because of the in-depth curriculum they provided about the history and foundations of the practice of yoga through to the modern day understandings of yoga in the western world, but also my emotional and spiritual life has grown through the care and concern they showed throughout the training, and tools they provided to help me to think in new ways about the world, this existence and myself and relations to others. I feel a sense of joy about life that I had not experienced before this training, and love sharing with others, and am so grateful for the opportunity to have shared this experience with so many beautiful souls. Namaste.
My 200-hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training was by far the most self-enlightening, personal transformation I have experienced in my wide range of professional learning endeavors. I have worked with my body from a young age, having received ballet training from principal dancers at New York City Ballet, as well as modern dance instruction from headliners of Momix and Pilobolus, along with Pilates, yoga, and various fitness trainers. Although I know I have benefited from all these other ventures I have embarked on, it is this sole experience that has allowed me to be break free of my own barriers and be confident in sharing my yoga practice as a teacher as well as a forever student.Under the individualized guidance of the instructors at Full Circle Yoga School, I was provided with a program that not only educated me about the history of yoga, how to teach the many styles of yoga such as Hatha, Vinyasa, Kundalini, and Yin, I also learned how to meditate and teach meditation, the importance of nutrition in healing the body within, as well as the role of the physical anatomy of the body in developing and deepening a yoga practice.I personally left this teaching training empowered and uplifted, authentically connected to the practice of yoga and its healing benefits. These three instructors each possess unique gifts that invite teachers in training to go within, find love and healing for themselves, and then emanate that knowledge as yoga teachers.
I think that a person makes the decision to join a Yoga Teacher Training at a point of pivot in their lives. Not everyone can take leave of their families, jobs, and lives to devote such concentrated time to themselves. But from I what I noticed and experienced, this pivot indicates a realization that you have been neglecting to listen to your heart (or gut, or intuition, or whatever you want to call it) and you want to remember how. I came to my yoga teacher training thinking that I wanted to grow physically strong and powerful, learning all the complicated moves I’ve seen people perform in classes and online - a primarily superficial and athletic endeavor. The first week frustrated and shocked me, I was ill prepared to talk about my emotions and spirit. Spirit! This isn’t even a word I ever felt comfortable using before my teacher training. Yes! I’d watched plenty of people in testimonials explain their spiritual growth, but I thought that wasn’t for me, that I could float above and ignore all that. But sitting with yourself and being surrounded by the loving net of those practicing with you will turn anyone honest. I realized that I didn’t come to try to be an acrobat - I came hoping to rebuild myself and personality. And what I found is that I didn’t have to rebuild anything - that I was there, but I was a little dusty. And I found that yoga is, for me, a daily dusting off of myself. Honoring, respecting, and keeping beautiful and clean! And then once I realized that, I found that I was getting pretty strong, pretty flexible, and those complicated postures were starting to happen. Thank you to my guides and instructors. I realized more each day what you have give to me and I love you dearly.
This past April I attended the Yoga Teacher Training with Full Circle Yoga School. I had some training prior, but this specific Teacher Training was the most powerful and transforming experience of my life.Going into this training I was a little nervous because I knew that every insecurity I had would be lifted to the surface and be revealed. Through the guided meditations and other techniques, I was taught how to identify my emotions that did not serve me, to understand where they came from, and to move through them in a positive and productive way. Through it all I found the courage to forgive myself for any negative past thoughts and actions, while realizing that it was an essential part of my personal growth. Due to the intensity of the experience there was a moment in my training when all the toxic energy inside of me from my past was being released; the guilt and negative judgments that I held in my mind and muscle tissues were rising and coming out of my body! The release was profound! Since the training I am so much happier. I make more time for yoga and meditation, which dramatically reduces my anxiety and mental chatter, leaving me with a deeper sense of contentment. The focus on organic, living foods in the meal plan has inspired me to improve my diet at home. My music career is blossoming as I now have the confidence to say, “No” when I need to, and to ask for what I need. This has allowed me to have the schedule I want, leaving more time for family and self-care. Yoga is a constant guide for me to make deep and positive changes within myself.

I attended the Yoga Teacher Training with Full Circle Yoga School. It was a life changing experience. We learned about Yoga and so much more. It was wonderful connecting with a fantastic group of fellow students. The teachers/facilitators are amazing, well informed, mind expanding people to be around. Don't miss the next opportunity to expand your consciousness and learn more about yourself and Yoga. Love and Light.
Full Circle Yoga School participant in the RYS 200 teacher training. The spirit and energy of the teachers and other students is truly amazing. I learnt so much in what seemed a short period of time. In addition to having developed my skills and capabilities to teach - I feel I'm going home a new woman .... mind, body and spirit. My teachers shared freely their knowledge, experience, and expertise. They were skilled knowledgeable and committed. I felt inspired every day. I would recommend this Teacher Training to anyone who wants to develop not only their technical expertise - but also their wider understanding of the spiritual.
I am so grateful I was able to complete my YTT here. It was an eye-opening experience that changed my life for the better. I learned about and developed my teaching skills for multiple types of yoga, grew spiritually, and was able to heal emotionally. We had amazing teachers who all contributed in their own ways to make the experience even more special. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to learn more about yoga for their personal practice, becoming a teacher, or seeking spiritual growth. I am very blessed that I was able to train with such an inspiring group of people who give their continuous support and encouragement.
I was not prepared on how overwhelming my time at YTT would be. I have never experienced something so spiritual and emotional. The instructors at Full Circle Yoga School went above and beyond to make sure that they were there for every student during this metamorphosis. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking for a new challenge or advancing their current status.
