5) Why should you entrust your yoga teacher training to Sumit and his team?

My path from yoga lessons in India to thriving yoga studios in Arizona has spanned every stage of being a yoga student, teacher, mentor, studio owner, and author. I have over 25 years of teaching experience, and since 2005, I have been training instructors all over the world. What interests me the most is seeing how yoga students can improve as practitioners before becoming teachers.

 

I have spent over twenty years carefully creating a curriculum for yoga teacher training that has two main goals: to preserve the true teachings of yoga and to give you the tools you need to be successful in learning and possibly teaching it.

 

Having made my way through the difficulties of becoming a yoga instructor, I've determined the essential components that make yoga practitioners successful. Each training module incorporates these concepts in a streamlined, organized manner. The program focuses on critical thinking, clarity, self-leadership, self-growth, and change, with the aim of improving your profession.

 

Every module includes both in-person and online instruction, along with a comprehensive set of resources such as checklists, milestone targets, custom sequences, roadmaps, and course manuals. You can work wisely and learn quickly because I've carefully thought through every detail.

 

Decades of meticulous curation went into creating this curriculum, which represents my personal relationship to yoga as a fundamental aspect of my life from infancy. Being Indian, I am able to discuss subtleties with my Western colleagues with ease, bringing the ancient wisdom of yoga into the present day.

 

It will greatly enhance the experience and I am excited to welcome you to the training. I am excited to see you succeed in both of your capacities as a committed learner and a blossoming yoga instructor.”

Past Trainees Testiomonials

1)Angie's Testimonial (2006): "When Sumit first suggested I take the plunge into yoga teacher training in 2006, I was hesitant. I didn't think I had the time, but Sumit's encouragement convinced me to commit. Little did I know, it would be a life-changing experience. Teaching for 15 years now, sharing the gift of yoga is the most rewarding part of my life. Sumit's training was a blessing that turned into a lifelong priority."

2) Dave's Testimonial (2009): "Financial struggles made yoga teacher training seem impossible in 2009. I had lost my job, and the thought of affording it was daunting. Against the odds, I borrowed money from my parents and took the training with Sumit. It not only changed my personal life but also led me to a part-time teaching career. Teaching yoga has been the most fulfilling job I've ever had, and I owe it all to Sumit's training and the support of my parents."

3) Amy's Testimonial (2011): "In 2011, I enrolled in Sumit's yoga teacher training with no intention of teaching. My goal was personal growth and deepening my practice. Little did I know, the training would push me out of my comfort zone, helping me find my voice. Sumit's training was the pivotal experience that gave me the confidence I lacked. Now, I lead corporate trainings worldwide, and I credit Sumit for helping me discover a new dimension of myself."

4) Grace's Testimonial (2015) "Sumit's yoga teacher training in 2015 was a turning point for me. I never thought I would have the time or the courage to take it on. However, Sumit's persistent encouragement convinced me to commit. The training became a priority in my life, and now, years later, I find immense joy and fulfillment in sharing the transformative power of yoga with others. Sumit's guidance has been a blessing, shaping not just my teaching journey but my entire life's path."
