My YTT experience with Melanie and Denise has no doubt changed my life for the better. Melanie and Denise are a kismet partnership, a ying and a yang, and together they unveil a phenomenal depth of information, years of practice and teaching, while also allowing each individual student to be themselves. The one month intensive training was perfectly laid out, where foundational skills were built as a base and additional layers were added throughout the four weeks.
They brought in other individuals from the local yoga community to instruct us when they felt there was a "best fit" person for that particular portion of the training. It is that aspect of the overall experience that I believe provided a well-rounded YTT.
We built a great deal of stamina, strength, and flexibility, while also finding our own unique voices and teaching styles. Melanie and Denise created a syllabus that properly reflected what was taught during the training. Each student definitely met the learning objective in his or her own learning style. Practicums were taught in small groups or pairs, which alleviated a great deal of first time "teacher" stress.
As someone who battles an auto-immune disease and its constant challenges, I still felt supported, heard, and nourished, and that was my main concern when deciding to embark upon this new adventure. I highly recommend the Blissful Spirits Yoga Teacher Training program.
I honestly had no idea how much taking the YTT with Melanie and Denise would change my life. I went into it thinking all I wanted was to expand my yoga practice, and came out with a new perspective on many facets of life. I couldn't imagine going through such a beautiful—and intense—transformation with better guides. I'm so grateful to Blissful for facilitating a better understanding of my yoga practice, with the icing on the cake of coming out the other side a teacher!
I had been wanting to complete a 200 hour teacher training for about two years before I was finally able to enroll and take the teacher training Blissful Spirits was offering.
I was ecstatic when I found out Blissful Spirits would be hosting their own teacher training. I love Denise and I always took her classes. I also took Melanie’s classes, so I was thrilled to know I would be receiving training from these two lovely ladies. Both of these women are excellent teachers and practitioners.
Although I had been practicing yoga for approximately 6 years, the training was much more than I expected. The training was definitely intense, and I personally experienced a roller-coaster of emotions throughout the training. I was able to truly self reflect and grow as an individual and as a student. The transformation changed my life. The training was amazing and I would go through the training again without question. Even though I learned so much, there is still so much more to learn.
I loved everything about the training. The highs and the lows. I loved working with and learning from Melanie and Denise, and the other great yoga instructors. I enjoyed learning more about my fellow teacher trainees and I definitely love teaching.
I am hungry to know more and I look forward to the lessons I learn in the hot room on my mat. I can say that the teacher training has definitely set me on a new, healthier and happy path in life.
I took the 200 Hour Hot Yoga Teacher Training at Blissful Spirits in the fall of this past year, and as I was handed my certificate of completion, I realized that my teachers were right in saying that I would be left with more questions than answers. Contrary to what your first thought might be, this was nothing but a reflection of how successful the training really was. It provided me with the knowledge I needed in order to begin my long journey of teaching while at the same time exposing me to the vastness that is Yoga. This duality of knowing and of not knowing is what I cherish most from my training. While I was able to enter the teaching world with confidence and ease, I know that I have just barely scratched the surface of a practice that is thousands of years old; I am going to be studying Yoga for the rest of my life. The training itself was well rounded, covering everything from the philosophies behind Yoga to detailed descriptions of different asanas to Sanskrit to the business side of Yoga and more. Beyond that, I was surrounded by peers and teachers who were, and still are, fully invested in my progress and success; I found a second home in Blissful Spirits. Yoga has transformed my life in more ways than I could have ever imagined, and I owe it greatly to the Blissful community for this transformation. Now, as I venture into the world, I am striving to share my knowledge with those around me in the hopes of instilling people with the same feelings and benefits that Yoga has given me. If I can help guide even one person in their own transformation or betterment through Yoga, I call that a success, and it all started here. I recommend the 200 Hour Hot Yoga Teacher Training at Blissful Spirits to anyone who wants to deepen their own practice as well as give back to the community.
Yoga has always come into my life exactly when I needed it. The Yoga Teacher Training was not an exception to this rule. While going through a tough transition at work I decided to take a leap of faith and finally go to the teacher training. I had been planing to take a training for years but was always to busy to go. When Blissful Spirits posted a night and weekend training I knew I had to finally commit. I am so thankful that I took the Blissful Spirits Yoga Teacher Training with Melanie and Denise. Just like their classes, the training was challenging but they both were there to guide us through to help us grow as yogis and people. While every hour is packed full of knowledge, tips of the trade, and adding meaning to our practice they did not just rely on their own knowledge but brought in the best instructors in Albuquerque to guide us through their respective specialties. They broke yoga down into each individual pose, gave us the tools to be the best teachers we could be, showed the big picture and deeper purpose of our practice. Just like in the studio we became a little family. Denise will tell you on your first day that your 200 hour YTT is only scratching the surface; you should walk away asking more questions and continuing to seek out knowledge. I am excited to continue to grow my knowledge and skills at the best studio in town. Every time I step on my mat I get to share my practice with others. I remember my training and feel so lucky and grateful. I know you would truly feel this way too.
