There's nothing you can know that isn't known. Nothing you can see that isn't shown. Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be. It's easy. All you need is love.

-John Lennon

The Purusha Yoga teacher-training program provides a wonderful foundation for the knowledge, skills, and personal qualities necessary to be a successful yoga teacher. More than a school, Purusha is a community built upon trust, respect, and holistic learning that considers its students as whole emotional and spiritual beings with many inherent gifts to offer. Purusha helps its students recognize these gifts and share them with the world. There is a teacher in all of us. I’m so grateful to have had the guidance and support of the masterful teachers at Purusha and would recommend this program to any yogi looking to deepen their relationship with their practice and discover the teacher within.
The teacher training at Purusha is awesome. I always felt like I’d left a weekend yoga retreat when I walked out of there. Joy, the owner and primary YTT teacher, knows so much about yoga, the 8 limbs, the ancient texts, anatomy, and is just someone with a positive attitude who you want to get to know better after the first time you meet her. Going through their YTT has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I always knew there was more to yoga than the physical components, but as a lover of Vinyasa Flow classes, that’s really all I knew. Now I understand that there is SO much more, and it’s deepened my practice so much, and in all aspects of my life from what I eat to how I treat others to how I look at the world. The power of yoga is incredible and I just wish I had known about Purusha and their YTT program sooner.
