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.
