11. Student Testimonials
The Tribe yoga teacher training was an immensely powerful tool to self-study, healing, and understanding the mechanics of the body and the mind. I came to India wanting to deepen my knowledge of the roots of yoga, and was deeply inspired by the wealth of knowledge that I was given that extended far past any other studies that I had ever been of part of. Truthfully I did not know what to expect at all and am incredibly moved by the powerful support and generosity the teachers offered about their own life journeys in yoga and its counterparts. The program was the most dynamic because of the encouragement each person was given to find their own voice within yoga, their own unique voice and style, and the groundwork was set from the first day to transcend any rigid dogma and create an individual path. It was a wonderful wonderful experience and I am forever touched…Thank you!…love and namaste!!!- Leah, U.S.
My time with Tribe marked the beginning of my freedom. I had been slowly self-exploring for years, however this full immersion surfaced a clear parallel between my inward and outer worlds.
The synergy that I have cultivated since this training, has opened me as a fuller person and an honest yoga teacher.
Yoga has become more than an internal practice that unfolds on my mat. Yoga has become my way of life. Namaste Tribe, Love -Alanna, Austrailia
