Yoga Teacher Training Reviews
Below are Yoga Teacher Training reviews from our graduates of the GoalYoga School™.
I knew from from the beginning when I signed up that this was going to be a crazy ride of physical and mental commitment out of me and my family, that yoga teacher training would be an emotional experience.
I had the wonderful good luck to obtain my yoga certification from Ken Heptig. I could not have asked for anyone better. His training allowed me to learn the poses, how to design a practice, and the opportunity to show the practice to the other students, thus receiving positive/negative feedback. It was always in a supportive atmosphere, which I needed.
The other wonderful thing I got was the opportunity to meditate. It’s like his logo says: Flow through the world with ease. Yes, definitely..Ken’s Goal Yoga is something not to be missed.
Ken’s YTT has given me a deeper understanding not only of yoga poses and the way my body works but best of all allowed me to deepen my relationship with myself and the Divine within. Ken is always positive, knowledgeable, compassionate, supportive and engaging. His training is well balanced and the spiritual component made it complete. I gained more confidence and trust in myself and i now go through life with a “lighter” attitude. His training is for anyone that is interested in evolving physically and spiritually and gain knowledge for teaching yoga.
Ken’s YTT yoga training has been an inspiration with his knowledge, guidance & wonderful enthusiastic personality. He is always ready to answer any questions we have. His positive approach to yoga really makes a difference in growth as a yoga teacher and or life experience.
I’ve always enjoyed movement but when faced with a lengthy recouperation where I had lost my strength, I decided to go to a hot yoga class at Dowd YMCA late December of 2013. I did not realize it was an advanced class and was not sure I could participate at all. I don’t know how he did it but Ken Heptig lead the class of varying levels, I felt comfortable and at the end of class I felt successful.
The physical and spiritual is what I desire to give to my future yoga students so I am learning from Ken at GoalYoga, a great experience on my path.
” I have really enjoyed Ken’s yoga teacher training. With one weekend left, I can honestly say I am significantly more confident in my own abilities and I am ready to teach (in fact, I have!). He is great at working with different personalities, melding us together as a group and keeping the group on task and moving forward.
Ken is especially good at showing us his style of teaching which is very open minded and encompasses a variety of his past experiences. The training is a good blend of hands on teaching, our own practice and learning by being taught by others in the process of learning, as well as discussion and reflections on thought-provoking readings. I would recommend his training to anyone looking to teach at the Y!”
Obtaining your 200 hour yoga teaching certification is a very intimidating goal. I was very nervous at first but as the weekends flew by and my knowledge for yoga deepened. I became more confident in my practice and in my ability to share my practice, love, and appreciation for yoga with others through the knowledge I gained from Ken’s training. I recommend entering any training with an open heart and mind to yourself, other students, and the teacher.
Goal Yoga has given me the confidence to teach yoga in a class setting. The practice sessions during YTT has helped me tailor a class with ease despite the varying level of students in a class.
