This program is absolutely incredible. It truly changed my life. Daniela, Christopher and Jeannie are the trifecta of excellent teaching. They not only show you how inclusive yoga is and make you feel so welcome but they pack a TON of information into the program. Things that truly changed my outlook on my ability to be a yoga teacher myself.
Awesome! Incredible! Life changing! I promise I'm not exaggerating! What an amazing gift Yoga Farm has been for me. I thought I was going to learn how to be a yoga teacher. Yes, I learned how to be a yoga teacher but I've also learned that there is so much more to yoga than Asana. And my journey is just beginning. I am so excited to continue on this journey with Yoga Farm and take more classes!! Amazing. Love, love, love Yoga Farm and all the fabulous teachers!!
Yoga Farm Ithaca offered a unique opportunity to complete my yoga teacher training program online. I felt very supported during the process and learned a lot of useful information for both my yoga practice and personal life. Thank you so much!
Skillful, knowledgeable, enlightening. Walking their talk. Nothing but appreciation for the space the YFI teachers and supporting staff are able to create for anyone to feel connected and learn in a way that suits the student best. Grounded and empowering. Feeling grateful for this inspiring bunch and looking forward to continuing my journey with them.
Having a dream put into the Universe is the start. Yoga Farm Ithaca fulfilled the dream. The classes were enlightening , healing and set up to complete with ease. The school staff was available anytime and their overall encouragement /support makes this school one that comes with highest recommendation. You can pace you courses to your needs/schedules. Such a great way experience. It is never too late to answer your calling.
I felt Yoga Farm did an incredible job making their program comprehensive and accessible for learners. I greatly benefited from the flexibility of format and the variety of teachers that participated in my session. I am extraordinarily grateful to the Yoga Farm staff and community for inviting me in and welcoming me so deeply. You will get out of this program what you put in so I encourage anyone with a strong desire to learn more about the practice of yoga to join. The Yoga Farm community is broad reaching, filled with wisdom, and incredibly warm and welcoming!
