 What other Yogini’s say:

The HERIZEN Tm Level 1: 200 Hr. YTT was an amazing experience and far exceeded my expectations! It was a journey involving physical, mental, spiritual and emotional growth. Not only did i develop my yoga asana practice and grow the confidence in myself to be a safe and knowledgeable yoga teacher, but I also had a chance to grow my meditation practice, puja or daily practice of devotion, come to know a greater understanding of the Yogini way of life and philosophy alongside amazing women. The bond and  connection with these amazing women grew as we learned, practiced and supported and nurturing one another as we developed our own style and understanding of Yoga path. Valma’s thorough and well thought-out program was delivered with love and compassion. Wonderful meals prepared with love and nutritional excellence to meet the needs of every individual and hours of asana, pranayama, mediation, devotion and evening discussions filled our time together. I am so grateful for this wonderful experience and recommend it to anyone serious about developing their understanding of the Yoga Path and becoming an excellent teacher. Blessings to you Valma.  Namaste     Wendee Byrne, BC, Canada
