What Graduates of VY&F Are Saying

“I knew that I wanted to deepen my yoga practice, but my experience in yoga teacher training at Vida was so much more! Not only was I able to learn more about the physical poses, but I also broadened my knowledge of yoga philosophy and anatomy. This teacher training has transformed my life. As a teacher, I hope I can encourage and inspire others to take the training. Why not expand knowledge on something you are passionate about? I know, I sure did, and it has been one of my greatest accomplishments.”
– Gina Grills, RYT-200, Spring Class of 2021

“The. Best. Experience…Teacher Training takes hard work, sacrifice and vulnerability….Learning sequencing, history of yoga, practicing Ashtanga and power yoga, meditating & journaling, Sanskrit, anatomy (oh anatomy!!!) all lead to building relationships with other yogis, falling deeper in love with yoga, receiving tools and confidence to teach, but best of all it was heart opening. It ignited the fire within. I want to share my love for yoga and what it has done for my life with anyone who’s willing to join me on the mat.”
– Sabra Simpson, RYT-200, Spring Class of 2021
“I went into yoga teacher training hoping to come out with a better knowledge of yoga and an expanded practice. I actually earned much more than that. Lifelong friends, a passion to teach and a deeper understanding of the body and history of yoga are just a few things I took away from this training. I would recommend it to anyone that has a heart for yoga, you will find something that touches you.”
– Mandy Whetsell, RYT-200, Spring Class of 2021

“Going through VIDYA’s 200-hour yoga teacher training is one of the best things I’ve done for myself. I’ve been practicing at VIDYA for 4 years and teaching for over a year. When I took my first class at VIDYA it was for the physical workout, but I kept showing up on my mat for the mental health benefits and the amazing community. If you are looking to learn more about yoga and/or looking to learn more about yourself, I highly recommend VIDYA’s 200-hour training. You are given all the knowledge and tools you need to teach a yoga class while connecting to yourself on a deeper level. You will not regret it!”
– Alyson Argabrite, RYT-200, Class of 2020

“….The experience is life changing! The knowledge you receive through the program is thorough and prepares you to teach not only power yoga but foundational and restorative yoga. The lead instructors are a real asset to this program bringing years of fitness training and medical knowledge into an all-inclusive process….To all those considering the program all I can do is DO IT… whether your goal is to teacher or not there is so much to learn and further your own practice.”
– Toni Hobbs, RYT-200, Class of 2020
“I would highly recommend Vidya’s YTT program. During my experience, I gained a deeper knowledge of yoga, learned so much about myself, and furthered by own yoga practice. They provided a welcoming atmosphere and a great learning environment with top notch teachers. They set you up with everything you need to know to start as a RYT and I would tell anyone looking to take that journey to sign up! It was worth it!”
-Amanda McKee, RYT-200, Spring Class of 2021
