Giving a Student an Ah-Ha Moment is like touching the Brass Ring of being a Yoga Teacher. Because it is only when a student understands and acknowledges the mind and body (yes, and spirit!) connection … that they empower themselves to make the changes that need to be made. It happened to me yesterday! A […]
A Special Message from Justine…… On the night of January 31st my 32 year old son had a 3 story fall in Los Angeles at his apartment. When I received the news, we were not sure if Mike was going to make it. In that one moment, my life changed. Drastically. I was able to […]

and Gentle Yoga for Low Back Care Teacher
I wish you had more courses. I have now taken all of them. Except for gentle yoga because there is alot of overlap. I think you guys are awesome. You have changed my path in my life. I am not going back to my nursing job because of you. I have been trying to figure out what i love for so long. I am m, and always will be a nurse and I am finding that people love that I am a nurse and have gotten a few classes because of it!! So, a million thanks again. I know you are sick of me praising you, but you and Sherry have really changed my life! ! Thank you again!!!

THANK YOU so much for your excellent program. It has been a life changer for me and many of my students. I hope to continue growing and helping those in this community.
Janet Rosoff, Florida, USA
I completed my 200 hour Yoga Alliance Training in 2009. Since then I completed trainings at Duke for Integrated Yoga for Seniors and with Yoga Vista Academy for both Chair and Gentle Yoga. The Low Back Care training has taken me to a whole different level of knowledge and teaching skills providing me with a solid understanding of low back conditions, the poses that empower and help my students improve their back conditions, the associated risks, as well as an ability to use that knowledge and teaching skills for creating a safe and effective yoga practice for my students.
Jacob Fuller, Dallas, Texas, USA
I use a lot of your suggestions and really love your training. I am happy to be apart of the Yoga Academy community, and thanks for you all and your hard work with the training, it sure helps my teaching!!!

I enjoyed the course very much and learned a lot. My students have enjoyed all the new material I have been able to introduce.

Thanks for these very helpful tips. Thanks also for your nice comments. I really appreciate how much thought you have put into my teach back.

and Gentle Yoga Teacher
I have completed the studying and testing of the low back course now preparing to video sequences and send them in. I am excited to say that I was asked to teach a gentle yoga class with an emphasis on low back care to physical therapists and have now been asked to teach a class at their facility for their clients. This physical therapy facility is who I treated with following my accident (it will be 3 years in April). I am so grateful for their treatment and care and the opportunity provided by Yoga Vista to study online to receive my Chair Yoga, Gentle Yoga and now Back Care Certification. What a Journey it has been! Thank you Sherry and Justine.
I am LOVING the program!
It’s always a challenge living in a remote location – being unable to access many ‘live’ training programs.
This one truly is amazing!
I loved the anatomy module, I learned so much it took me awhile to get through it but truly is was time well spent. I believe you and this program came at exactly the right time in my life. A BIG THANK YOU!
Jasmine M., Queensland, Australia
I really enjoyed it. Learnt a lot and feel much freer in my body already. I am very keen to do the full 100 hr course so please let me know when it is released, as I am in Australia so will have to be online. I am a yoga teacher and yoga therapist and have already started to use little snippets in my classes with great response. After about a week and a half of practicing GSY every other day, I did my regular personal home practice this morning and am feeling like I have a lot more space in my body. This work is amazing!
Lanny Carlson, Estherville, Iowa, USA
I completed the Chair Yoga course several months ago, and it has been such a blessing. I am now teaching Chair Yoga twice a week at our local Regional Wellness Center, and twice a month at the Good Samaritan Nursing Home, and I continually refer to the course materials for insight and inspiration. Communication and support throughout the training and beyond has been great, and I highly recommend Yoga Vista Academy and its course offerings.
Amanda B., Australia
I’d like to say how much I appreciate your commitment and sharing of your knowledge to enable newer yoga teachers like myself to learn and benefit from your wisdom so we may spread the love and benefits a little further into our own communities.
I feel truly blessed to be teaching yoga and so grateful to have found you and the Yoga Vista Academy.

I think just helping people realize that their posture unconsciously becomes their real physical body is my imperative take away from the Posture Project and what I try to relay to people in my class. I have not tried to just tell my fellow man or woman at the grocery store that their hip leaning is creating an imbalance in their body and it shows, however I do think telepathy is a growing trend, and people are picking up on the unified field of thought. So, maybe if I just starting projecting posture corrections onto people they will begin to find new breath in the unconscious faults that become crystallized in their physical vessel.
Sharon Cavanaugh, Calgary, CANADA
Thank you so much for putting together this wonder program, which has brought so much to my chair yoga teaching.
Carol Daly, New York, USA
Thank you for referring me to Bruce who hired me to work with his mother. I appreciate it!

“Hundreds of people walk outside our doors throughout the year, and we pay no attention them. We only pay our attention to those that knock on our doors.” I think of our minds like that with energy and intuition. Intuition brought me to your online class. I am grateful for the intuitive knock.
Donna Wazneski, Texas, USA
I now have four gentles a week! We started a Friday 310 PM class that had 18 participants last week!! Who knew?
Julie Hamilton, Edwardsville, Illinois, USA
I am happy to say that because of your course I am able to teach people with confidence on at nursing home, offices, yoga studios and memory care facilities.
Really enjoying the Chair and Gentle online program.. This has made such a difference in my teaching! My students love the work I have shared with them and feel its made such a difference in their lives. I have a student who has had surgery for breast cancer and she feels the poses and stretches we do have made more difference in her life than the PT she had after her surgery which was a couple years ago.
Diana Brockman, Ballwin, Missouri, USA
I have only positive things to say about Yoga Vista Academy’s Online Chair Yoga Teacher Training course! I found the course to be well organized and thoughtfully constructed down to the last detail. Sherry is very knowledgeable with the aging body and yoga, and energetically shares that knowledge in her writing and videos. She was so responsive, offering assistance and feedback throughout the entire process. Her positive energy and attitude shine through in this online course.
