  • YTT not only provided the education needed to be a powerful dynamic teacher, but a welcoming environment for me to learn and grow. By covering the "surface" of Power Vinyasa - poses, form, cues, assists - I was able to solidify my practice and understand how to structure a class. By incorporating discussion, team-building, and written reflection (in the form of journal entries), I was able to take a deeper look at my own personal growth, both as a person and yoga teacher. YTT was a life-changing event that was brought on by connecting with Eliza and the yoga community. I had no idea that its POWER (ha!) would effect me both on and off of the mat. ~ Jess D.
  • I enrolled in Fly Dog Yoga's first session of teacher training on a whim.  Yoga has been a central part of my life for a long time and I was interested in studying it in depth.  Fly Dog's training program exceeded my expectations.  The information was presented in an incredibly thoughtful and organized way.  Although the training had a power vinyasa yoga focus, we learned about all types of yoga traditions and philosophies.  I love sharing yoga with others now as a teacher! ~ Bridget B.
  • Eliza's 200 hour TT taught me to step outside my comfort zone. She is thorough, knowledgable, organized, and most of all, she wants you to succeed. It has been the most rewarding training I've ever completed. ~ Vanessa S.
  • FlyDog's Yoga Teacher Training was the most formative experience I've ever had. Not only did I gain the confidence and independence to lead a yoga class, but I gained a whole community of on-going support and opportunities for further development. Eliza Whiteman thoroughly designed a teacher training experience that challenged me to move past the limits I put on myself, to step out of my comfort zone, all the while being surrounded by a tight-knit network of inspirational yogis. ~ Carly N.
  • The FlyDog yoga 200-hour teacher training program was a revolutionary experience. A deeply knowledgeable staff and outstanding guest speakers combined to build a comprehensive training program which allowed me to broaden my personal practice in many meaningful ways, and prepared me to help others do the same. At FlyDog you will find a great enthusiasm for the love of yoga, a rigorous, physically challenging program, but also a nurturing environment that allows space and provides support for the emotional and mental aspects of this transformative process. I am thankful for the experience and I couldn't be happier to have joined the FlyDog family. ~ Patrick G.
  • FDY’s YTT is an amazing program that will inspire & prepare you to “wow” students on the mat. If you are looking for a comprehensive certification that combines the technique of teaching & assists with the tools to incorporate unique and creative flows—this is your spot. ~ Ashleigh O.
