FYI Training Class #1, December 2016

It was no coincidence that I completed the Fitness Yoga Instructor Training in Esterhazy. All I can say is that it was like going home…Shirley and Leanne were amazing in facilitating a wonderful learning environment. Their strength is in their ability to teach yoga philosophy, anatomy and deconstruction of the poses in a fun and relaxed manner. There was a lot of time spent practicing yoga poses and sequencing classes. They balanced a level of professionalism with ease and interjected humor, when appropriate. The group dynamic was very supportive and I believe that everyone felt as though we were part of something very special. I would highly recommend this Yoga Teacher Training. Do not let fear keep you from experiencing something so wonderful! Take this next step in your life toward sharing your Light with others…Leanne and Shirley are there to guide you on this life changing journey! ~Michelle H.
