I have tremendous gratitude for being able to attend the YTT at Vasa. Classes dove deeply into the practice, culture, history, and teaching of Yoga. Instruction was dynamic and exciting with a good balance of structure and flexibility. It was impressive how much Chelsea and Lisa were able to teach us and the community of collaboration and empathy they created. This was a profound experience that changed both me and my yoga practice. --Tim Rogers
“ At 52 I started yoga once or twice a week to help with stretching while training for a triathlon. I began to not only feel looser, but the everyday aches and pains of recovery from training began to disappear.
As i kept up with it after my race and with some dietary changes , I started getting stronger, breathing easier and actually enjoying classes, and eventually signed up for Teacher Training to deepen my knowledge and practice.
At 55, I am now a certified teacher through VASA and have begun teaching and assisting classes. I use what Ive learned everyday in my medical massage business, and advocate all my clients to try or come back yoga for better health, lifestyle and peace of mind”

Learning about Yoga from a “Biomechanical” perspective is something I loved about Vasa Teacher Training. Learning about the “biomechanics” of Yoga sets the program apart from others. The teachers are knowledgeable and provide information in a format that is fun and easy to learn. Ive been able to apply the knowledge I gained not only in my personal Yoga practice, but in my job as an Occupational Therapist as well. I was even asked recently to design a Yoga program utilizing “biomechanics” for a local high school football team.

"Yoga teacher training at Vasa is difficult to sum up in just a few sentences, but I'll try. I have practiced yoga all over Southern California and had been considering going through a teacher training program for years. However, I was always held back by fear of the unknown: I didn't want to make such a considerable investment of time and money without certainty that the caliber of teachers and the quality of the overall program would be top-notch and aligned with my personal interests and priorities. Enter Vasa 200-hour YTT. I already knew that Lisa and Chelsea were incredible yoga instructors (and humans!), but they exceeded my expectations in every way during training. I cannot imagine a more balanced, informative, and inquisitive curriculum or more welcoming, nurturing, and inspiring trainers and fellow trainees. I can't recommend Vasa's teacher training program highly enough, to any yogi at any level of practice. Whether you want to teach or simply expand and deepen your personal practice, Vasa YTT is the perfect next step!" --Ashley Heggi

"My teacher training at Vasa was honestly life changing. I expected it would improve/expand my own practice. It was the relationships I gained, and the knowledge & support that Lisa & Chelsea shared with us that truly made the experience special. They lead from the heart in their classes at the studio, and teacher training was no exception. It was a journey dedicated to self-care and development. I highly recommend taking a teacher training at Vasa no matter where you are in your practice!" --Veronica Foster
