Are You Ready to Stretch Yourself?
2014 YTT Grads

“Yoga is about stretching yourself beyond your comfort zone—beyond the fears and the doubts that keep you small and hold you back. The highest form of yoga is to have the courage to take a leap of faith and follow the call of your heart, even when it defies reason. Exuberance and freedom are unlocked. You are expanded. Everyone and everything rises in a groundswell to support you. The seas part and the impossible becomes possible. You become who you were meant to be!”
— Laurel Hodory, Director of Yoga Teacher Training, MS, E-RYT 500, Author, Studio Owner & Certified Coach

“Be who you were meant to be and you will set the world on fire.”
– Katherine of Sienna

“I just did a handstand with Laurel’s help. I feel so strong and powerful. I haven’t felt this powerful in years!”
—Nicole Bundy, MD

“As a student that went through a metamorphosis physically and personally, I can say Laurel’s ability to see the tightness in my body and my life changed me profoundly! Her support does not stop after training or off the mat. Laurel offers a community (Kula) that supports, instructs, and lends a shoulder or ear!”
—Bonnie Finneran

“After teaching a few years, this program was an incredible way for me to advance my teaching skills and grow professionally. Do it!”
