Body Heat's Yoga Teacher Training was a perfect fit for me. I can't even begin to describe the depth of our discussions, the detailed explanations of postures, and how easy Kelsey made learning muscles, bones, and Sanskrit! My personal practice previously emphasized the physical workout aspect of westernized yoga, but in learning the philosophy and history of this ancient practice, it deepened my own to become a more mindful and meditative one.

After receiving my books, I peeked through them before we began. It felt overwhelming and almost impossible to learn all the information: muscle names, bones, Sanskrit, sequencing, history, etc. Before I knew it, we were just a couple weeks in and I was already reciting sun salutations completely in Sanskrit and explaining in detail which muscles create which movements as well as the different types of joints. If my high school math teachers taught algebra with the ease and confidence Kelsey expresses in teaching about the body, the philosophy, and the postures of yoga, I might actually have remembered something!

So, whether you want to teach or just deepen your practice, the bottom line is if you're looking for a yoga teacher training program that is extremely educational with a fun atmosphere and a great teacher, Body Heat is the one for you. Not only did I learn so much more than I anticipated, I also made some amazing friends along the way. I am so grateful to Kelsey and everyone else at Body Heat for the welcoming environment and the opportunities I received throughout this program.
