2015 Harmony RYT300 Yoga Therapy Teacher Training Testimonials “The program is very well organized with an enormous amount of incredible information so generously shared; years of hard work and knowledge, which was poured out from the heart kindly and passionately for the benefit of others. Thank you, Helen! You touched me deeply”…Elena Bendel
“The course was very thorough, covering or touching on, maybe all aspects of yoga. I think Helen offers something that is quite absent in the popular North American sense of yoga, that is the holistic aspects. For that I believe she is valuable and I appreciate her contributions to the world of yoga. Helen also pays attention to the prevention of injury which is very important. Thank you Helen!”…Jenny Luong
“The program is complete and in depth. Thank you for all the work you do for us to learn and evolve”… Namaste, Mirta Romberg
2014 Harmony RYT300 Yoga Therapy Teacher Training Testimonials “This is an amazing program with such a wealth of information for how we can heal with yoga. I have attended other programs in the past that focus heavily on asana. Harmony’s Yoga Therapy Teacher Training Program includes all aspects of yoga and is truly a holistic approach to well-being. I’m coming away feeling confident in my abilities to assist others in their healing”…Shauna Prouten.
“I loved Harmony’s Yoga Therapy Teacher Training Program because I was looking to connect with the spiritual side of me! Helen made that very easy to do. The knowledge you gain is priceless. The program was not only about learning about health and wellness for your students but also to understand how to use the power within you to help yourself and others. I gained so much from these teachings and I look forward to taking the knowledge I gained from this chapter of my life to the new one I am about to begin. Love & Light”…Sophia Surage.
“The manuals are mind-blowing. Seriously Helen. The amount of love, care, knowledge and attention to detail that you poured into these manuals was incredible. They will be a constant resource I will use to help others and myself. Thank you. I loved how immensely organized you are – our days were planned minute-to-minute. I especially loved how you would send us late-night emails with specific and very detailed answers to our questions-you never forgot! I loved the yoga nidra and the passages you would read to us everyday from the book, “Passages to Joy”; heart-warming. I am so glad I found you. You are an excellent teacher Helen. I’m very demanding of my teachers and you exceeded my expectations. Your studio is a beautiful sanctuary. I experienced some spiritual trauma and release while in your program. I think you felt it and you let me be, but you made me feel cared for and loved. I am looking forward to continuing to learn from you. I hope you don’t mind, but I consider you a Spiritual Mother to me. Bless your heart, and your soul. I hope to meet you in all the lifetimes I am here. Namaste”…Jenna Stone.
“Wonderful space held all the time. I feel very blessed to have studied with you. Loved how well-rounded the program is – yoga therapy is not just asana – it’s mantra, mudra, marma, meditation (wow – 4 “m”s) and ayurveda!”…Nicole Schulz.
“I enjoyed the depth of knowledge given and presented in a very systematic method. The explanation regarding every aspect of yoga through the manuals and books have given me a deeper understanding of Ayurveda, Chakras, Koshas, Granthis, Bandhas and many more topics. Helen used a variety of tools to help us understand the concept of the inner world. We studied anatomy and physiology in detail, learned to use many props and modifications to help our students. Helen’s personal experiences have given me a greater insight of different techniques to help me learn”…Kapila Chugh.
