Testimonials: Online Gentle Yoga Training Course

Julie Poast – Chicago, IL

I thoroughly enjoyed the Gentle Yoga training – especially the focus on conditions and ailments that students may bring, and the poses that may help them feel better. I feel like I am a much better teacher after taking the Yoga Vista Academy training…and that was after already having 500 hours of teacher training! I also appreciate that I have “life long” access to the training materials and videos – I find myself referring back to videos and other information as I prepare my classes for the week. I am also grateful for the in-depth responses to questions I have posed – the answers are friendly, informative, and so helpful.

Patricia Power, Canada

I am a recently retired elementary school teacher who specialized in working with students with additional needs in an inclusive setting. Since starting to teach yoga in 2019 I have strived to follow the same philosophy as I did with my young students by making my classes accessible to all. Over the past year, I have completed the requirements to become certified in gentle yoga, chair yoga and chair yoga dance through Yoga Vista Academy. I found all of these programs to be comprehensive and well organized. I learned a great deal about anatomy as well as a wide variety of ways to create safe and engaging gentle and chair yoga classes. Safety considerations for seniors as well as for people with various conditions were throughly presented. The programs all provided a combination of reading, listening to presentations as well as being able to practice the concepts presented in numerous videos. I feel that working through the certification module is so beneficial for consolidating the concepts taught in the course in a practical way. I would definitely recommend the programs offered through Yoga Vista Academy for those yoga teachers who want to provide accessible and inclusive yoga classes.

I have learned so much in the Gentle Yoga Class. I am teaching a gentle flow class tonight and they will definitely be doing goddess arms in Warrior 1!
What prompted me to register for your gentle yoga program to begin with was I had students with hip, knee and shoulder replacements. My real concern was the woman attending class while getting spinal injections. I was so afraid I was going to break them that I wanted specialized training.

Edith Mildner, Germany

After my success with wheelchair yoga, I immediately booked the Dual Training Chair + Gentle Yoga. (Warning: Yogavista is addictive 😉) Even the subject of “anatomy of aging” is incredibly informative and exciting! Many handouts and videos show how many options there are for gentle yoga or yoga on the chair. In this way, even older or less flexible people can benefit from the health benefits of yoga! Thank you Sherry, you have enriched my yoga life so much!

Maryann O’Brien, West End, North Carolina, USA

Thank you for taking the time to create such a comprehensive program and to share your expertise and experience in such a candid and honest way! The depth of information on the aging body, anatomical issues with each part, combined with yoga poses to help mitigate issues was extremely helpful. Having a manual with diagrams and photos addressing these issues serves as a handy reference guide when preparing classes. I constantly find myself reviewing the manual as students identify their physical limitations. Your program was so extensive that after completing Gentle/Chair Yoga dual certification, I feel like I earned a medical degree! Thank You! Thank You! Keep doing what your are doing! You are making a difference in so many lives!

I just want to thank you so much again for all you have given me. Thanks to you starting with chair yoga certification, I went on to study yoga therapy with breathe deeply program. And nowI am in Florida and teaching gentle and chair yoga to women 60 and over. I also have three private clients. I can’t tell you how great the information is that have given me. The anatomy of aging body is amazing! I watch your videos over and over. Your programs are so thorough there is nothing else out there!! I’m just preparing for my class and looking over some of your videos and I’m so happy to have them as a resource. Thank you again both so much for everything!!. I don’t think people say thank you enough to other people so thank you again for bringing your knowledge to us! I no longer have to go back to nursing and I feel so good that although I’m not a nurse, I’m still helping people.

I am almost done with the course work. I have been really enjoying the quality and thoroughness of the curriculum. I am currently teaching Gentle Yoga to students who are in their 50s- 80s in the community clubhouse here in N.C.. The course information has been so helpful. I have about 25-30 students that faithfully attend my classes and have fallen in love with benefits of Gentle Yoga to keep their aging bodies, minds, and spirits healthy.

I wanted to tell you that I am thoroughly enjoying your Gentle Yoga teacher certification. I have been chipping away at it slowly. Rather than speeding through it, I chose to read one chapter or module at a time and teach it in my style to my class. This morning, I did your class called “gentle yoga class: extra umpf of ujaii and sun salutation”. I absolutely loved it. At one point in the class, you asked a question to your students and I caught myself answering your question…haha..online…real-time.. what’s the difference?

Many thanks to Justine, your students and yourself for the continued support that I received throughout the learning process. It is easy to become overwhelmed with all that there is to know, but you kept the information so well organized and consistent throughout the process. It was also easy to see the relationship between the chair yoga and gentle yoga materials which helped to make the dual-certification process even more rewarding for my students and myself. I highly recommend both for anyone who may be on the fence.

I’m so very glad that I decided to take both the Chair Yoga and the Gentle Yoga teacher training courses! I can honestly say that I use something that I learned from these courses in every Chair Yoga class that I teach (and I teach 3-4 every week)! Both courses were so very full of information and ideas! Even though I’ve been teaching chair yoga (and occasionally subbing gentle yoga) for a few years, I learned so much from taking these courses! Thank you, Sherry (and Justine!) for all you’ve given me!

Taking this class has been an amazing experience for me. I am impressed with the amount of past and ongoing research you have put into it. This is obviously a labor of love for you and you must know how many lives you have touched. The lessons are well constructed and easy to follow. Your positive attitude is infectious. I LOVE all the videos and watch at least one a day, whether it’s chair yoga, gentle yoga, somatics, or one of the educational clips. One of the things I most appreciate is the time you take to make the class personal. You responded immediately to every email I sent, answering my questions an offering encouragement. I also appreciated the time you took to thoroughly review my teachback and provide specific, helpful comments. Where do you find the time and energy for all this?!? I am amazed. Thank you so much for the work you do. You have personally blessed many lives, and your love and compassion is radiated to the world through all those you teach. You are a gem.

Yoga Vista Academy‘s Chair Yoga Certification Program provided a written PDF to accompany the video presentation which I found beneficial to the student to read and follow as well as a great reference source to keep. I have already referred back to the PDF notes several times. The library of postures is also a good reference source for poses and their unique names. I found the videos to be very helpful especially to see the students go through the asanas to the best of their ability with modifications provided to accommodate each body and level of ability.

Yoga Vista Academy has a way about making you feel like you are a part of the yoga family. I couldn’t get enough of the videos and information. I am a visual person so having the videos were essential to my learning. Not only are they informational, they are enjoyable to watch and see the different personalities of each teacher. One day I called Yoga Vista to ask a question and I was thinking I would get an answering machine or something like that. Low and behold Sherry picked up!! I was so impressed and a little shocked. I can not say enough about the Academy. Well done from start to finish!!

I thank you for your wonderful instruction. Love it. Love it. The information you provide would make anyone a better teacher. My students love the information and knowledge they gain. They tell me that their doctors asked them what they were doing differently as their lung capacity has improved (some had very little lung capacity). They proudly told me that they informed their doctor the only new thing they were doing was Anna’s Yoga. Their doctors told them to keep coming. Same results for different students and different parts of their bodies. I can’t take the credit. We do a lot of your “While you are at it.” I am following your game plan and it is amazing. I must admit I knew nothing about the human body before I took your classes. Both me and my students thank you for a job well done.

Last November I begun the Dual Certificate in Chair Yoga and Gentle Senior Yoga.

I would like to take this opportunity to say how much I am LOVING this course the delivery and presentation of it all you really have ticked all the boxes. With your videos I feel I know you more as your personality shines out in each clip. The amount of work you have put into your courses is phenomenal, but you have made it so accessible for a student to learn and you set us up for success.

Your course for Gentle Yoga is exactly what I was looking for past couple of months and thank you for offering us who like to learn, share and spread the love to others!
