Our student experience speaks for itself


Connection, growth, strength and confidence are only a few words that come to mind when I reminisce on the time spent during my yoga teacher training. Becoming a yoga teacher was always something I envisioned for myself but pursuing this dream was something I had set on the back burner of my multi-burner stove. When the opportunity arose to take this training with Lissa and Carol, I knew my time had come. Not only are both of these facilitators excellent yoga teachers, they are also incredible people. They have a passion for life and this work that is contagious and they so graciously share with their students. They have a fair approach at working with all learning styles, this course is made for anyone wanting to  deepen their relationship with themselves and the practice of yoga.


I had some profound moments during this training where I felt sudden shifts in my perspective, my body and my why. I have a newfound respect and love for myself and that is a direct result of this experience. I would recommend 10/10 to the person looking to find themselves on a deeper level, explore the incredible art of movement and stillness that is yoga, and to connect with incredible like minded people. 

Yoga Teacher Training Graduate, Adrianne

I had an incredibly life-enhancing experience with the training through the Colorado Springs School of Yoga. Not only did this program prepare me with a confident teaching foundation, but it brought about amazing growth and confidence in my personal life as well. Lissa and Carol are incredibly knowledgeable, engaging, experienced, connective facilitators, and they both went above and beyond to focus on me as an individual throughout the entire process. I was pushed to my limits at times and I was also encouraged to be content with where I was at. They facilitated a group dynamic that left me with the most wonderful, supportive friendships. Lissa and Carol consistently brought out the best in each of us and helped me come to a much deeper understanding of what yoga really means and can be. 


My name is Jenna and after spending 8 weekends in YTT with Lissa and Carol, I am almost at a loss for words but here we go. I cannot compliment the two enough. Their levels of knowledge and expertise were exceptional. I don’t think a single one of us was ready for it to end. From start to finish, the whole training was conducted beautifully and I am grateful for the experience.
