I am very glad for choosing The Mindfulness Center for my Yoga Teacher Training program. I instantly fell in love with the program and the instructors. The program has rolling admission which is very convenient and each session is conveniently scheduled. The program gears the students towards gaining a thorough knowledge of the theory and how to apply the learned principles into practice. I received adequate opportunity to practice the principles during every session which has given me the confidence to become a successful instructor. The program focused on Mindfulness practice and holistic approach which is very attractive and something that I have been looking for. My love for yoga has grown multifold ever since I enrolled in the program at TMC. The program included many interesting and important workshops that increased my understanding of Yoga and Mindfulness practice. Huge thanks to Dr. Debbie Norris and Jessie Norris for beautifully formatting this program to make me LOVE and understand yoga even more. Their lectures and trainings were mesmerizing. I am astounded by their knowledge and my respect for them has grown multi-fold. I will very highly recommend this program to anyone out there looking to do a Yoga teacher training.

The Mindfulness Center’s Yoga Teacher Training was an incredible experience for me. The program prepared me to be a confident yoga instructor not just at the technical level, but also at a deeper energetic level. I am more prepared to teach than I could have imagined when I started this program. Both Dr. Norris and Jessie have a wealth of knowledge to share with their students and do so in an engaging and joy-filled manner. This program is a fit for anyone who wants to deepen their personal practice and learn how to actually teach yoga at the energetic level with evidence based techniques. I am so grateful for TMC and staff for the knowledge and wisdom they pass on to their students. Thank you!
