“I have more confidence in my abilities to be a mindful and effective teacher. When I first started this journey, I wanted to share my love for yoga. That’s still true today, although that goal has been compounded to mean so much more. Through the practice, I wish to move my students to a more conscious state of peace. Getting to know yourself is where the real shift occurs. I’ve learned that solitary self-reflection and sitting in meditation is the real catalyst for change. My spirit is renewed and I feel a wealth of love I’d like to share and spread. I’ve always been a skeptic so I came into this with some resistance. My blinders are off and I see firsthand the benefits and joys a healthy yogic lifestyle can bring. I’m eager to learn more about Shambhava yoga and to teach!” – Amy, Level 1 August 2017 graduate
“When I came to yoga training I was looking for a change. I had been struggling with the big dynamic changes I’d experienced over the last few years and was feeling overwhelmed. My inner knowing had been nudging me toward the training for over a year. You could call my hesitation resistance, but I didn’t understand how a yoga training could shake me out of my funk. I felt I already had a lot of tools to work with, meditation, etc. I had been feeling like a leaky boat at sea taking on water. I wasn’t sure how much longer I’d stay afloat! All the things I had been trying to plug the holes with weren’t working. What finally started to seal up my leaky boat…it was everything in the training, and for that I’m so grateful. I’m more equipped for life’s challenges, and feel lucky to now have the ability to share my passion for yoga with others.” – Stefanie, Level 1 graduate August 2017
“This training has been a wonderful opportunity for transformation. I have recognized my tendency to resist certain challenges and the ways that I tend to distract myself. I feel more confident in my abilities to stay present and aware to anything that arises in my life. In any moment I have the capacity to feel my breath at my heart center and trust my intuitive “knowing” of what most truly nourishes.” – Esther, Level 1 graduate May 2017
“I chose this training at Eldorado Mountain Yoga Ashram because of their long time tradition and the respect for the mindfulness that naturally and historically goes along with yoga. Being immersed in this community, even just for the days of training, really brings a wave of tranquility that you can learn from and bring back into your daily life. I found my spiritual practice strengthen and develop into a strong daily practice including yoga, meditation, reciting mantras, etc. All of our teachers were amazing, open, and focused on helping us grow and achieve our goals. I know that they will always be there for me to reach back to as friends and mentors. I feel immense gratitude for everything that Eldo has brought into my life.” – Julia, Level 1 graduate January 2016

“The Shambhava School of Yoga Level 2 was a wonderful training. The teacher trainers are extremely knowledgable and give undivided attention to each of their students. I learned level two asanas, pranayamas, and how to teach a multilevel yoga class. I enjoyed the yoga philosophy and having discussions during the teachings. Not only did I learn the above but I also learned how to truly embody being a teacher and teach from a heart space.” – Janis, Level 2 SYTT graduate 2014
