I don’t think I chose this program, I think this program chose me. I have been planning this for your years, and I found myself in a situation where I was very unhappy and it was time to do something about it. I went online and saw Molly and Liz’s website and I thought, yoga teacher training in Hawaii….why not? It’s hard to say what my favorite part of the training was because I’m walking away with so much. I enjoyed the process, at first I was hesitant to “trust the process” that Liz and Molly encouraged us to trust. Especially coming from New York and my learning experience, besides work, being traditional school education, and in school you get a syllabus and you are told this is what we will be doing…Molly and Liz treated this teacher training more organically and left space for accommodation for what we needed and what they thought was appropriate and it really gave us the space to be open and grow through whatever experience came at us. Molly & Liz are incredible, they are both very genuine individual people, teachers, humans and they both come from incredibly nourishing warm place. It’s so wonderful to have that yin and yang, they compliment each other so well, and they gave us everything we needed, we all grew together.
I feel a huge transformation from this yoga teacher training, I came into the training not knowing if I actually wanted to teach yoga or if I just wanted to improve my own practice and now I feel really confident that I want to teach yoga. I also feel like I came back to myself, like I have bloomed again. There was a big part of me that was missing, that I hadn’t come back to in a really long time and through the yoga practice, the meditation, the study of philosophy and just being in this environment I was really to able to connect with myself again and find wonder and gratitude for everything. I also loved the retreat center, Kalani, it is Heaven on Earth, second to burning man, it is my second favorite place in the world. I’ve been looking for a place like this for a really long time, it is so free spirited and I’ve never found a safer, more loving, carefree environment where people are just nourished to be themselves. –Rachel, NY
