Yoga teacher & Co Owner at Breathing Room, Red Deer, Canada
It’s with deep gratitude, admiration and respect when I bow my head to my teachers & Lalit from Himalaya Yoga Valley. I've had the beautiful fortune of training with the Himalaya team in India twice. Upon arriving at my first teacher training, I had a business plan written for a yoga studio. Not only did they whole-heartedly embrace my dream, they encouraged me to turn it into reality and cheered me on along the way. With their continued advice and support, I’m now going into my ninth year of business. Their kindness and generosity has far exceeded my trainings in ways I never expected.
Over the past several years, they’ve helped me brainstorm workshops and class ideas, detangle business situations, and even celebrate the birth of my son. Lalit and the team have challenged me to honor and live my yoga the best way I can, without compromise and with unwavering devotion.
I can say, without the slightest embellishment, that my life has never been the same since crossing paths with my mentors. With their guidance, I feel as though I have a handbook for life. I have a yoga practice that runs through my veins, far deeper and richer than any physical asana.

Himalaya Yoga Valley – Just wanted to say in a word – thanks. You did it! You gave me everything I needed to become a teacher. I’m teaching 6 days a week at two different studios in NYC and I have a growing list of private clients. The best way to make the jump after teacher training – put your feet on the edge and do it. Yes it’s nerve racking when your first students actually show up to take a class that you have to lead. But you CAN do it.
Leaving Goa I was equipped with every single tool needed to lead an informed competent class. The last tool I needed to work on...belief in myself. Once you take that leap of faith it all falls into place. One of the best pieces of the training is the sequence that Lalit put together this is the Holy Grail and I always keep it close by. When and if you get flustered while teaching a class it’s very easy to “take it through a vinyasa” and during adho mukha savasana, peek at the sequence gather your composure and get back to it. I’ve also found that students like adjustments. It doesn’t have to be a “correction” per say, it does have to be your undivided attention on that student. Upon leaving HYVC you will be an alignment specialist and sharing that in your classes will help you quickly become people’s favourite teacher. Again HYVC thanks for letting me be me and helping me find my teaching voice.
P.S. I actually meditate daily and sit in full lotus (something I thought was impossible when I arrived). – Chris
