Radiant Hot Yoga’s 2022 Teacher Training Scholarship Winner Josh M.

I love Yoga. I’ve been practicing for over nine years. Prior to my practice. I experienced some challenging obstacles. When I was twelve years old, I was hit by a pick-up truck while riding my mountain bike. I endured a traumatic brain injury that resulted in two brain surgeries, I was in a coma for fourteen days and I basically had to relearn how to walk, talk and practically function all over again. Throughout my teens I had difficulties with my health. I struggled with asthma from birth and poor coordination from my injury. As well as bad headaches. I took an interest in fitness at the age of 15 when I joined the wrestling team. I learned different exercises and began to get in shape. Then life took a turn. I became addicted to alcohol and drugs. For the next six years I became a chronic user. I first discovered the practice of yoga in 2011. I was in a very difficult spot in my life. Physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually I was in pain. I remember my first introduction to Yoga. I did not want to go and partake in any class as I felt completely depleted. However, I forced myself up and I rode my bike to this yoga class I was invited to. The bike ride took an hour. I proceeded forth into this class unaware of what to expect. It was a 90-minute yin class and very difficult because I was not flexible, I had been awake for 4 days and my mind would not stop. I was drowning in a wild pang of negativity. Suffocating in anxiety and saturated with depression. My capacity to feel was lost. My sense of being human was broken. I stuck with the class and administered just about every Asana. At least the ones accessible to me. At the conclusion of class as we descended into savasana a genuine river of tears exuded from my eyes. I thus experienced a sense of peace and knew that if there was any portal to extract me from the heart breaking chaos, I was engulfed in, I knew Yoga was one of them. Life continued and I encountered many more challenges. My substance abuse was at its peak. My life was unmanageable. I fell deeper into depression and I was far from happy.

Asheya’s experience

The teacher training with Radiant Hot Yoga was such a precious and pivotal time in my life. Darlene and her daughters created the most nurturing, encouraging, safe space for me to fully come into myself and my power. I became more in tune with my body and in tune with my soul. I reached deep inside myself and found my voice. I became empowered to live my passion and teach yoga! I truly cherish the community we all built together and the distinct feeling of coming home. This teacher training is a rare and very special one of a kind opportunity to dive into yourself and discover all the beauty and strength that lies within – it has profoundly transformed all areas of my life. I am forever grateful to have been a part of this life-changing experience.

Susan M.’s experience

Hi yogis,

I started practicing various styles of yoga 14 years ago and the minute I tried hot yoga, I was in love! I was on and off the fence about further deepening my practice with teacher training and then finally, one day while I was in class, I decided it was my time to rise. I searched for a yoga teacher training program that would work with my schedule, being a full time employee and new mommy. To my surprise, RHY TT had everything and so much more!

If any of you are thinking about deepening your practice and becoming a yoga teacher, I would highly recommend Radiant! Darlene is such an inspirational, loving, inclusive, mystical and nurturing leader who cares about every individual that comes through her studio along with her beautiful daughters and staff. There is nothing but love and growth here. If there’s one thing I wish I could have done differently, it would have been going to RHY teacher training sooner!

Yoga is a light which, once lit, will never dim. The better your practice, the brighter the flame.” – BKS Iyengar

Thank you so much for your love, Darlene!”

Ka Vang’s experience

Teacher Training at Radiant Hot Yoga is so much more than I’d ever imagined. I am forever grateful for the love and most amazing experiences that I’ve gained from it.

Not only did I feel safe with a loving yoga community; I gained more self-acceptance and learned how to embrace more of my own power within.  The short 8 weeks provides an opportunity for a variety of other Yoga concepts and subjects that are not able to be taught in a hot yoga room during practice to be introduced to us. I certainly connected with the description that our yoga instructors often described of Teacher Training, that you would dive deeper into your practice;  and that it certainly did. I truly felt that I’ve dived deeper into my practice and ultimately into myself.

I highly recommend Radiant Hot Yoga Teacher Training program to anyone who’s interested and that you WILL be able to find the time to make it happen. The sooner you commit, the sooner you will see the joy and love of how Teacher Training will impact your life. Keep in mind that the true beauty of Teacher Training can only be felt and experienced and not read on paper.

Thank you again, Darlene and Radiant Hot Yoga

Doug D. - Radiant Hot Yoga Teacher

Doug D’s experience

I got started in yoga about 15 years ago taking bikram yoga. After quitting my practice due to addiction issues I did not practice for many years. After being sober for several years I was looking for hobbies and activities to try and stay in shape and hopefully and mental balance and health as well. After trying many different studios and just not finding what I was looking for I found Radiant and really fell in love with practicing, however I never had any thoughts of becoming a teacher.

After serious prodding from several teachers who recognized my passion for yoga I took teacher training in the Fall of 2017 and it was truly one of the best 9 weeks of my life! From making new friends, discovering how incredibly rewarding it is to teach and see and feel that difference you are making in students lives and all the in-depth study of the postures, nutrition and meditation was so educational.

What really sets Radiant teacher training apart is how Darlene and her group of core teachers really share in their lives and get you to open up as well, I felt like I got rid of decades of resentments and fears that were holding me back in so many different areas of my life. I would so highly recommend taking teacher training to any aspiring yogi even if they are not interested in teaching, you will meet people that will make you light up and smile very time you see them as well as be challenged to step outside your comfort zone
physically and mentally.

Analisa A.’s experience

I started going to Radiant Hot Yoga regularly this year. After completing the 30-Day Challenge in June, I decided to deepen my practice and enroll in the Fall 2016 Radiant Hot Yoga Teacher Training.

I cannot express in words how grateful I am to Darlene for inspiring us to be the best versions of ourselves during the intense 8-week training.  I met remarkable human beings and was spiritually inspired and guided by Darlene and her two beautiful daughters.

We learned so much: to breathe, watched inspirational videos, learned to be grateful and vulnerable, we studied the Chakras, Patanjali’s Eight Limbs, Yogananda, Anatomy and the 8 joints, the Doshas, non-verbal communication, Hindu Gods, nutrition and inspiration. I gained wisdom, peace, knowledge, filled my vessel with goodness not material, a new purpose, enlightenment, and I am starting to loose my ego.

But the biggest gift is being open and vulnerable because without vulnerability, you cannot be authentic. I look forward to teaching and both enlightening and empowering others to improve their lives and find happiness. Lastly, I strengthened my body and have improved significantly in all the poses. My body, mind, and spirit are stronger and I am certainly grateful for this gift. I am forever grateful to Darlene for creating Radiant Hot Yoga – a place for growth.

Ashley’s experience

I became a certified yoga instructor and graduated RHY Teacher Training in Spring 2016, it was truly an extraordinary experience, physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. It was an incredible 8-weeks of intense training not only learning so much about yoga and the body but also a deeper understanding of the self.  I am so grateful to have been part of the training and created so many memories with new friends that will last forever.

Juno’s experience

I was scared out of my mind to do the teacher training but I can honestly say it was the best decision I have ever made. It challenged me both mentally and physically and it gave me the confidence I needed to teach and to grow in other areas of my life. TT came at a time when I really needed to be inspired, to be pushed to step forward into growth and away from fear and the community, the program, and the experience did just that. It was so much fun and such an incredible experience. I recommend it with my entire heart even if you just want to do it to deepen your practice. You will leave a fantastic teacher whether it is as a teacher of light and of positivity or a yoga teacher. You will become stronger in yourself and in your abilities, I know I did.

Marjan’s experience

My journey through yoga has been life changing. I have come to know myself in ways I had not explored before. I have experimented with a certain vulnerability of my soul that I had kept concealed for fear of exposing the parts of me I work to keep hidden. Yoga took away that curtain of doubt because it guided me into the light. Whereas before I perfected a façade of invulnerability, yoga has helped me understand that shattering my walls to let in people is one way to open my heart up to all the beauty of the universe. I found teacher training at a very difficult point in my life, where for the first time, I had experienced uncertainty on multiple levels and could not find some peace. There were many aspects of my life that were vague and unsettled, and I felt the challenges beginning to weigh heavy on mind. Teacher training introduced me to a group of strong-minded, caring, beautiful and inspirational women who offered me insight and kindness. I feel blessed to be a part of such a diverse group of women, who have touched my heart in so many ways. I am grateful to Darlene for her leadership and support, and to the teacher training group for their boundless grace and love.

Morgan’s experience

My experience with the RHY 200 hour teacher training was an absolute gift to me in my life. I almost didn’t sign up to do it because I was not sure that I had it in me to actually teach. But with loving encouragement from some beautiful teachers that were already teaching at this studio and Darlene, I took a leap of faith and signed up. The experience challenged me, pushed me to the limit in the best way possible, and gave me beautiful growth as a person in so many ways. I feel so fortunate to have found this particular teacher trading program at Radiant Hot Yoga. Darlene, (the owner of RHY) put her heart and soul into our training and helping us become the very best that we can. She has a true love and concern for her teachers in Training. We had so many unique and different teachers come to our training to teach us so many different aspects of yoga. It took my practice to a much deeper level. It really opened my eyes to all of the amazing areas of yoga that can be explored. From Kundalini, Ashtanga, Gongs, Chanting and meditation, deepening my knowledge of the asanas (postures) that are practiced in yoga, as well as learning about Chinese medicine, health through food, and the Study of the bones and muscles of the body. I loved soaking in all of the new things I was learning! Some of my favorite moments in training were when we would first arrive in the morning, sit in a circle, and Darlene would show us a very uplifting video or we would do breathing exercises to start the day. I would feel overwhelmed with gratitude in those moments for the experiences I was having there! All of these things were wonderful, but most of all for me, I had the desire to teach. And I didn’t have the confidence to do it at first. When training was over, and after I had taken my first class from Childs pose all the way through to savasana, tears filled my eyes. I have come so far, and I did it! I am so thankful to have had Darlene as a mentor in learning to teach. She is an amazing woman! And I would never be where I am if I didn’t sign up for the teacher training! Thank you so much Darlene for helping put me on this beautiful path to teaching through your amazing teacher training program! It is an experience I will never forget!

    I came into Teacher Training to solely learn the mechanics of yoga postures and how to run a yoga class, in order to teach yoga and its physical benefits. But, what I did not know was that I was about to go on the biggest self help journey I have taken in my life.

    I came to Radiant Hot Yoga Teacher Training physically weakened from treatment of a life changing medical diagnosis. I felt that the teacher training would be a great way to build myself back up physically, it did. The Yoga training gave me tremendous physical strength and when completed I had felt stronger, physically, than I ever did before. However, due to my medical diagnosis I came to Radiant Teacher Training mentally fragile, scared, and confused on what I wanted to due next with my life post diagnosis.

    The spiritual, meditational, and motivational exercises gave me emotional strength. I was no longer scared and confused; I came away from the teacher-training program with mental and emotional strength, clarity and sight with a clear vision on what I wanted to do the rest of my life, both professionally and in my personal life. I had always had these visions, however, I had kept them inside hiding. The lessons learned in Teacher Training brought those visions out and helped me become the person I always wanted to be deep down inside. The Teacher Training experience is truly priceless and there is no amount of gold I can ever repay Radiant Hot Yoga and the Dearen family, my treasure to them is my respect and love.

    Teacher Training has completely changed my life! I completed my 9-week Training in the Spring of 2017. From week one, we embarked on a such a beautiful journey, spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. Darlene, Skyler and Savanna fully dedicate themselves to these 9-weeks, always providing unconditional love, support, and guidance.

    Not only will you become more connected with your yoga practice, but more connected with yourself and everything around you. This has truly been the best gift I have ever received, I am so grateful!

    The 9-weeks go by so fast and at the end, you will definitely be wanting 9 more! I would do Teacher Training over and over again and highly recommend it to everyone! The connections I have made, the growth I have experienced, and the peace and love that has filled my heart and body from inside, out has been magical and life changing! Thank you to all my fellow TT’s and the beautiful Dearen’s for walking this beautiful path with me!
