As a recent graduate of the Long Beach School of Yoga RYT 200hr Teacher Training program, I can confidently say that I am forever changed. Under the professional and loving direction of Ram Bhakt, my yoga practice has deepened in ways that I could never have imagined. I now have a deeper understanding of not only the roots and lineage of this sacred practice, but also of the critical importance of my conscious connection to my breath. Through the beautifully tailored yoga and meditation practices, I was able to seamlessly implement mindfulness into every aspect of my life, not just when on the mat. My self-awareness and ability to be fully present have increased in a way that will surely guide me as I continue to grow and expand in this life. After completing this course, I feel confident and excited to share my knowledge of yoga, meditation and Ayurveda with others as a certified yoga instructor. I hold such gratitude in my heart for Ram and for his guidance on this part of my journey. I am honored to have been a student at the LBSOY and would highly recommend this course to all. If you are seeking a deeper understanding of yoga or, more importantly, a deeper connection to your most sacred self, look no further. Come, find your tribe, find your voice, find yourself.
