kind words by students

Our students love MVP's
approach to learning

Since starting the 200-hour Tantra program, I have learned a lot about Tantra. I had done Tantra couples classes in the past and I thought taking this Tantra Yoga course would help me facilitate these types of classes. What I have come to learn through this program is that the practices I had experienced were a neo tantric approach or even Taoist Tantra practices. I did enjoy learning about the root of Tantra, the Hindu and Buddhist approach, where I can now go and explore more of Tantra with the history and knowledge I have learned here.

Since taking the Tantra Yoga Teacher training with My Vinyasa Practice, I cannot speak to how much has changed for me. My practice has deepened so intently, I can feel the different flows of energy running up and down my body throughout each practice. Over this training, the different modalities and practices that are used for Tantra yoga are so potent.

This course 200-hour Tantra YTT has pushed me to reflect on my thought processes and help improve my internal connection and trust with the universe the ability to feel connected and support as lowered my own worries and has furthered my motivation to share this knowledge by teaching yoga from a connected and open place. I have enjoyed reading about the different styles of tantra also as it has also continued to ignite my passion for living in more of a tantric way.

I absolutely loved taking my 200-hour YTT course through MVP. My Vinyasa practice made it doable for me to obtain my certification while working and going to school full-time. I look forward to teaching yoga in my community and feel like I have a much deeper understanding of the philosophy and history of yoga.

The support of the MVP community truly inspired me to put myself out there & realize my dream of incorporating yoga in my class of teaching children with special educational needs. I will be forever grateful not only for the theoretical and practical knowledge that the 200-hour YTT provided, but also for the true compassion and love all trainers showed towards us in training. I wholeheartedly feel that MVP represents the true essence of what yoga is and I feel ready to start sharing it with the world in my own way. Thank you <3

I enjoyed the 200-hour YTT journey MVP. I learned so much especially in the learning lab and office hours. I appreciate the abundance of knowledge that the lead trainers are eager to impart on students and the encouragement to show up as our authentic self.
