Working in the fitness industry for over 40 years, I have taught and taken many courses. I can honestly say that this course was extremely comprehensive yet easy to follow.

Susan Manning

I am so happy with the TKYM program. I’ve learned so much, not only about yoga but about myself in the process. The mentors are very helpful and I found the course easy to follow.

Cynthia Florence

This program is truly AWESOME. Everything about it was perfect for me. The assignments, readings, tests, and the asana demonstrations were extremely comprehensive. I learned so much.”

Toni Ruscio

I signed up for The Kaivalya Yoga Method® because it was self-paced. I loved that the training is broken down into short concise teaching, that is informative and profound, and easily digestible.

Jamella Stroud

Training with TKYM was the best decision and experience of my life. The mentors were all incredibly helpful and kind, and Alanna is an incredible and inspirational teacher.

Melanie Mclaren

I found this course extremely
informative from an inclusive anatomy course to learning about the myths related to yoga. I do recommend this for anyone looking to teach yoga.
