WHAT RECENT GRADS SAY
Urban Yoga teacher training grad Shawn Bradford, who currently teaches two classes at Urban Yoga, explains below how her training experience prepared her to teach. And other graduates of our program explain how the experience transformed their lives more than they’d ever imagined.
“It’s difficult to put into words what completing my yoga teacher training at Urban Yoga has done for me. I can hardly believe how dramatically my life has changed in the past year since my training ended. It raised some gritty questions, and, in turn, revealed some interesting answers. It wasn’t always easy, but it was so worth it. Not only did my own practice deepen, but I gained useful tools and additional knowledge that has equipped me to further explore all that yoga has to offer and share my love of yoga with others. Amazing opportunities continue to unfold that have brought fun, challenging and richer experiences into my life. It was one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done for myself. I love my Urban Yoga family and can’t imagine life without them!” —Chelle Crandall
“I had read that “teacher training changes your life.” But I had no idea what to expect. I entered the program with an open mind and graduated with a well-rounded understanding of yoga practice, a new-found confidence in myself and some life-long friends. I learned SO much about the different aspects of yoga. The history of yoga and stories of the postures stick with me today. By the end of the program, I had found confidence in myself and my ability to guide others through their yoga practice. I started teaching shortly after graduation. All of the instructors that were a part of my training were extremely supportive as was the entire staff at Urban Yoga. My experience was amazing.” —Clair Alle
“The Urban Yoga teacher training was one of the most memorable experiences in my life. Not only did I feel prepared to teach and was hired immediately, I felt prepared to handle any event with grace and courage. Tara Martell offers knowledge and experience and also helps you find your authentic voice and teach from the heart. Many programs can be overwhelming but Urban Yoga provided me with a comfortable environment and challenged me to find my true purpose in yoga. A great balance between philosophy and physical practice. A life-changing training that left me confident and hungry to learn more.” —Beau Campbell
