Love Notes

The Downward Dog teacher-training program helped me to take my yoga to a new and higher level of understanding. Not only did I come out of the program feeling physically stronger but emotionally and spiritually stronger too. I have been able to apply what I learned in the classroom to create a wonderful business at my cottage teaching yoga to neighbors, friends and family. Thank you to all the wonderful Downward Dog teachers for their enthusiasm, dedication and knowledge and for inspiring me to make yoga a core part of my life.

The teacher training program at Downward Dog Yoga Centre was truly eye opening. It allowed me to understand the human body on a whole new level and it challenged me to step out of my comfort zone as a ballet dancer and into the body of a yoga student/teacher. The information I learned during the program has been invaluable to me, and it has allowed me to sustain my dance career with a sense of ease and effortlessness.

There are no words to express how GRATEFUL I am for the TT training. Ron and Marla are such incredible translators of the tradition.



To Ron: I learn and continue to learn from such a great Master...the importance of stability and balance, of creating length in the spine, of helping students reach their maximum potential and feeling
empowered as they progress in their practice. Thank you.

Namaste, Luzita

Dear Marla,

thank you for an enriching 8 days of training. In most environments of training. You constantly pushed us to be rational and have foresight, but always in service of an experience. I am fascinated by your manner of teaching, and I look forward to see how things will evolve in the weeks to come.

My Best,
