Healing will inevitably occur, positively affecting the lives of those whom you come into contact with, in many ways.

Tuition will include: The Yoga Loft’s 200-Hour training manuals, 40 in studio classes & a 3 day yoga retreat.

Our interest to grow is not learned, it’s inherent, it’s part of the soul. When we quiet the mind, we start to uncover that part of us that inherently wants to expand; that is curious, inspired and motivated. It can step outside any heartache or confusion we’ve experienced in the past. And then spontaneously, we start to come alive. – Rod Stryker
