Testimonial Headshot

Other members of the Yoga community often ask me where I studied to become a Yoga teacher and tell me how lucky I am to have been able to take the 500 hr. training at Naada. I really do feel thankful. My time in the program was intense, fun and challenging throughout, with the varied and educational modules, outstanding teachers at Naada and the added bonus of internationally renowned guest faculty. I continue to explore, discover and learn more from my time spent at Naada and about Yoga itself. Naada opened my eyes and my heart to the vastness of Yoga.
