I had a million reasons why I shouldn’t do Be Bold Teacher Training. I am so incredibly thankful that I listened to the reasons why I needed to say yes. BBTT gave me the tools I need to be for others, but also to be for myself. I learned so much about myself during this time, and I gained a new perspective that I wasn’t even aware I was lacking. BBTT not only left me feeling empowered to share a strong, physical practice of yoga with others, it also left me inspired to simply be better for others. I cannot thank Melinda enough for leading this experience. She challenged me to dig deeper and be uncomfortable, while at the same time providing support and kindness. Melinda is a powerful role model of what being for others looks like, and we were all so fortunate to have her.

I went into the WVPY Teacher Training thinking I would learn about poses, anatomy and how to teach yoga. Well, I got that and something much more valuable. The training was transformational for me. It awakened me to my purpose which has given me direction. I feel focused and alive as a result. I highly recommend the training to others.

Teacher Training with WVPY was hands-down the highlight of my year, and one of the most powerful and transformational events of my life. It is a difficult, demanding experience—both physically and emotionally—but if you are willing to put in the work, you will come away from the training as a new, better person. This training provided me with a vastly expanded view of what yoga means in my life. It profoundly altered my perspective of how I fit in the world and it instilled a level of self-acceptance and self-compassion that I never believed I could possess in my life. I came away from my experience with 23 of the most sincere, supportive, and genuine friends that I have ever had. They are all people who are dear to me like family. I came into the training feeling weighed down with the burdens of life, and the experience taught me to allow lightness and joy into my life. This training also furnished a thorough understanding of the poses and sequence in Journey into Power and provided a foundation to become an effective yoga instructor.
Yoga Trainings are expensive—there’s no question that it represents a significant investment of money and time—but I consider the cost to be trivial in comparison to the benefits received. Yes, you could use the money instead to fund a trip to a serene, tropical location. Or you could spend that money on Be Bold Teacher Training and bring contentment and serenity home to you. Don’t let cost or time commitment deter you. It is unconditionally, emphatically worth it.
