 “I highly recommend the teacher training course at Open Space Yoga. It’s both rigorous and fun, and covers a wider range of materials than I could’ve ever imagined. An added plus is that the teachers come from a variety of traditions, giving one a broad view of the yoga world.” Ted Pirsig

"If you choose OSY for a teacher training program, know that you are in safe, comfortable hands, yet you will be pushed and challenged to learn and grow about yoga philosophy, asana, pranayama, meditation, but mostly, about yourself.  You will grow not only as a yoga practitioner, but as a unique person as well, on a path to the very best you, forever changed from your experience."
