Here's what our YTT Graduates have to say...

"Soul Collective YTT was a life changing experience.  Not only do you learn to teach yoga, you learn from teachers who practice what they preach.  Rose is caring and one of the most
generous people I have ever known.  This was an intense program.  Making it through shows me I can accomplish anything.  Thank you, thank you, thank you Rose for seeing us through the last 7 months.  You are amazing.  (Thanks to Doug too for putting up with all of us ladies and losing his man cave on YTT weekends:)."

"Thank you so much for everything you did for us.  You made the training so special and put so much effort into everything and it showed!  I really enjoyed "finding my path" and can't wait to see what the future holds."

"You all worked so hard to prepare materials, food and workshops and with the added stress of losing a key player, you all handled it with grace, dignity and support for your students.  It didn't go unnoticed and I truly appreciate all your hard work and passion!  You guys are the best!  I am truly grateful that my husband signed me up for this!  I wasn't sure at first, but it ended up being one of the best experiences of my life!"

"There is no better option for YTT than through Soul Stretch!  This was a soul-enriching, life-changing experience.  I wouldn't ever thought that I would graduate as the owner of a yoga studio, yet I feel fully prepared to let go & take the leap!"

"I got a completely new outlook on life.  I became a better person even just after the first weekend.  I recommend it to others because regardless of who is in your group, you are all going to grow and become so emotionally, mentally, and of course, physically strong. THANK YOU ROSE!!!  These have been the best 9 months of my life and I can't wait to leave the nest!  You all have taught me so so so much."

"Soul Stretch teacher training was a wonderful way to strengthen my practice of yoga and dive deeper into the philosophy, anatomy, and health benefits of living a yoga lifestyle.  The teachers go above and beyond to educate and support their students in a nurturing environment.  So grateful for the opportunity and one of the best experiences of my life!"

"Soul Collective YTT is an incredible growth experience of a lifetime.  The course is taught with loving kindness in an environment that is nurturing and safe.  The training deepens your physical practice, gives you a yoga family, challenges you mentally & physically and explores your spirituality as you learn to become a teacher."

"I am so grateful for my Soul Collective training!  I felt timid and unsure in the beginning but left feeling the confidence to teach a great vinyasa class.  This training is like no other!  I would recommend to everyone!   What I learned will impact me forever.  The trainers radiated love and kindness.  I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to learn from Soul Stretch.  And Rose, thank you for doing this training.  I would not be who I am and where I am without you.  Your confidence in me has pushed me to say yes when I wanted to shy away.  I truly believe I had the most amazing YTT experience.  You are love, light, kindness and karma yoga.  I'm so grateful to have you as my teacher."
