What our grads are saying….

“CrossRoads YTT covered a variety of topics and has experienced and knowledgeable instructors. The instructors made you feel comfortable to ask all questions, provided feedback for improvements, and was willing to help with any question that arose. They built an online community of classmates during the pandemic and did so gracefully. Upon graduation, I immediately felt confident and ready to be able to teach. I am so thankful for their time, work, and effort to make their program so inclusive.” (-m)

“This was a rich and comprehensive program, covering yogic principles and philosophies, pranayama, ayurveda, 50 asanas, history of yoga, and meditation. Reading materials were relevant and engaging, and teachers were passionate and knowledgeable.” (-t)

“Without a doubt I would highly recommend CrossRoads Yoga Teacher Training to someone who is interested in teaching Yoga as well as learning about Yoga. The instructors are not only extremely knowledgeable about Yoga, but they take the time to ensure that each of the students enrolled in their program are supported and are not left with any questions. With that being said, the overall curriculum is extremely expansive, detailed and taught through multiple ways so that a well rounded understanding of Yoga is delivered. Finally, the instructors did an amazing job adapting and teaching virtually through the pandemic.” (-a)
