Testimonial From One Of Our Graduates 

Here is one testimonial from one of our teacher training graduates who is now teaching yoga all over the Globe.

Follow her on Instagram @lapetiteyogini

" My experience at Shanti Yoga Training School is very difficult to put into words because it literally changed my life.  First of all, the way the opportunity to come train at the Shala was the perfect way to start what would be a beautiful journey.
I was looking for teacher trainings in the New Orleans area and I happened to come across a Vinyasa Teacher Training. which was exactly what I was looking for. At the moment I was in Panama (where I am from) and I immediately called Nathalie to book a spot and the training happened to be full. Luckily for me we had an immediate connection (over the phone!!) and she promised that if someone cancelled she would call me right away and because the Universe works in wonderful ways that is exactly what happened next. 
The day she called to let me know someone had cancelled was probably the happiest day of 2014!!
After that things just got better.
In a short period of 5 months my life changed. I had turned around the way I practiced, I had learned more than in the past 3 years of college, I was able to begin teaching in the beautiful space, and I became part of an amazing family , the Shanti Yoga Love Warriors. 
Nathalie and the whole Shanti Yoga Family are definitely a blessing and they were put in my way to help me grow and blossom.
The Shala became my second home while I was in New Orleans and I miss it every single day.
I recommend coming to practice here and I definitely recommend taking the Teacher Training if you wish to deepen your practice and/or teach.
As I said before, my experience at Shanti changed my life and I am infinitely grateful <3
