Yovana Yoga In Downtown Calhoun!
Yovana Yoga In Downtown Calhoun!
I am thrilled with the Yoga Teacher Training I received at Yovana Yoga (RYS-200)! The instructors, Grace Stephen (E-RYT 500) and Sarah DeFoor (E-RYT 500), are both gifted teachers who pass along their wisdom with ease. I gained a deeper, well rounded knowledge of yoga poses, anatomy, history, humanities, meditation and much more. Guest teachers taught specialized subjects allowing a rich environment to learn and make connections. I was encouraged and supported by my teachers and classmates throughout our time together. Deepening my practice was the goal for this training, but now I have been inspired to share the beauty of yoga with others.
After teaching for 10 years, I decided to take my second 200 hour program to deepen my understanding of all aspects of yoga. I am glad I did, the Yovana Yoga teacher training program was amazing! I have grown so much and my students can already tell the difference; they love it. We are all always students of yoga. Thank you Sarah & Grace!
The instruction I received with the Yovana Yoga Teacher Training program was wonderful! Sarah and Grace were very supportive, giving feedback, imparting knowledge, and answering all of our questions. We were well-schooled not only in the yoga poses, but also the history, anatomy, and limbs of yoga. One of the most helpful aspects of the training was having ample opportunities to teach, which helped build my confidence to become a yoga teacher at the studio. Whether you're wanting to deepen your own knowledge and practice or become a yoga teacher, I highly recommend this teacher training program.
Although we were the "first" class, you would never know it from the quality of teaching we received from Grace's and Sarah. They shared their wealth of knowledge and amazing wisdom with us throughout the months of training. The location and props were absolutely perfect in downtown Calhoun, Sarah and Grace make an amazing team. Grace was a chiropractor before becoming a yoga and Qigong instructor. So, the quality of anatomy training we received was incredible. Sarah wove restorative yoga throughout every weekend for our self care. We received more information in a short amount of time than you can imagine. There is no way that any other school can provide two such amazing instructors to teach and guide you on the best path towards being an amazing yoga teacher!
Having hands on experience teaching and creating sequences. Gaining knowledge from a senior yoga teacher has been invaluable. Rarely do yoga teachers get detailed feedback on their teaching. I think that all teachers should be required to do a mentorship
2020 Restorative Yoga Training:
Sarah is extremely knowledgeable about restorative yoga. The class was fun and engaging and very informative! Just taking restorative into my own practice has been just what I need to take care of me. My students love when I incorporate a restorative pose into a regular class.
Yovana’s Mentorship program was extremely helpful for me to grow as a new yoga teacher. I was extremely nervous during my first couple classes and Sarah has such a loving energy about her that it helped calm my nerves! She gave me great advice on how to set up a proper sequence for a class, I also feel much better about my ability to vocalize the actions in order for my student to get in and out of their poses. This gave me invaluable hands on experience to find my voice and grow while teaching in a safe space. Overall I feel like I am a stronger yoga teacher and have much more confidence in my teaching practice!!! Thank you so much Sarah
