A good use of time and money

by Jay Hiller
I got a lot of information and ideas from this course. I loved the books, especially What We Say Matters. This course was easy to engage with and offered many concepts to think about.

Inspiration, knowledge and wisdom

by Sussie Jensen
This course is built up in a way that inspires me to go deeper in every subject. I have been using Judith Hanson Lasater's books for years, but now I have been able to integrate the knowledge and wisdom from the books in my own practise as well as my teaching in a much more profound manner. I love the different teaching styles: videos, audios, reading and practising. It works!

Amazing!

I absolutely LOVED this class!

by Dena Jensen
Being able to study with Judith Hanson Lasater at my own pace and at my own convenience was a delight. I really enjoyed the varied format of the Q & A, audio, and especially loved the demonstrations. I have implemented many things from this class in my teaching, including allowing the top hip in triangle (and warrior 2) to come a bit forward -- thank you! I really liked the blanket support of under the head in svasana and showed my students how to do this. They love it when I do it for them, but have a harder time getting the blanket adjusted on their own. Overall this was an outstanding course! I will be taking others and am so grateful for Lizzie and Judith!! Namaste, Dena

Beyond Expectations

by loran white
I live in a remote area and sometimes feel very distant from my teachers. This training was so very helpful for me. I intentionally took a lot of time to complete it. In fact, it is now September and I started in April!. I approached the lessons like this: Listen to the lesson and take time to make notes, reflect on the messages and really breathe them in. Then go teach a few classes with one focus from the lesson. If the lesson was particularly rich, I might take a different focus in for a few weeks. After feeling that I had become the new teacher, I would move on. I have the great fortune of studying with Judith in person occasionally, but having her come into my home and speak to me through this medium was very powerful for me. I hardily suggest this program to other teachers no matter where you are on the path.

Great course and must-have for any new yoga teacher

by Christine Jaureguiberry
This is the first online course that I have taken and I really enjoyed it. The material is useful and clear and the best part is that I can refer back to it whenever I want! I like the question and answer style of it and getting to know Judith's style of teaching which I only know through my own teachers as I have never had the chance to attend one of her classes.
