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!
