To achieve these things, you must have access to the right tools + education.

WHAT PAST PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING

 

“The Yoga Viva Teacher Training was an amazing introduction to so many beneficial practices that have supported my journey of personal development, self love, and connection to spirit. The Yoga Viva gave me the tools, confidence, and experience that I needed to step fully into my role as a teacher. I’m proud to say that I’ve taught nearly 100 asana + meditation classes in the last year, and that I have grown exponentially as a person.”

-Isabella K | Summer 2017 Graduate

During the yoga teacher training, self-care and Sadhana became my top priority. I started eating more nutritious food. I learned a lot about Nutrition and Plants. I started to truly love myself. I loved my experience so much and if anyone asks me - I always recommend The Yoga Viva and Kristen and tell them how extremely life changing it was. My life is truly richer because of it and I am forever grateful.

-Victoria | Spring Graduate 2017

Since The Yoga Viva Yoga Teacher Training, my physical health is improving every day. I have begun this year with less anxiety and a positive attitude. I truly feel the training has provided me the tools to navigate my career, personal life, and healing journey at new levels.
