"CSOY TT with Evan and Gina was a transformational experience for me because they taught me how yoga can create happier living, provide techniques to unite the body, mind and breath, and connect to the inner core of my being – the spiritual aspect of my life. They taught me through sequencing, planning and becoming a lifelong learner of yoga how I can pass the knowledge to others. Regular practice of yoga poses taught me more clarity, body balance, and improved flexibility which made me more confident to teach others the poses and gave me more confidence on my mat.
What I achieved in the classes, lectures and yoga practices has reflected in my actions and attitudes in my life in general. They taught me to breathe through difficult postures which helped me breathe through difficult times. Evan and Gina have empowered me to share the knowledge they have taught me with others.
They taught me that the practice of yoga and meditation prove to be a powerful combination. When the wobbly body becomes steadier and the disturbed mind becomes calmer, meditation can provide a deep sense of relaxation.
Evan and Gina taught me the importance of serving others by their example. They were generous, passionate and kind in sharing their knowledge and experience of practice of yoga. Their accessibility and availability for questions or just being there to listen exceeded what I ever expected.
I would highly recommend the program."
