I cannot express enough how grateful I am for choosing Himalaya Yoga Valley to equip me with the tools I needed to feel confident as a teacher. The course had the perfect balance between all elements of traditional yoga. The teachers were experienced, supportive, and knowledgeable across the board.

I would highly recommend this teacher training for those wanting to learn from a traditional school that's close to the source of the yoga.
