“The Amrit Yoga Institute’s 200-hour Posture of Consciousness training is, without a doubt, the best training and the best value on the market today. I know the yoga and holistic industry very well, and I even teach and consult in other 200-hour training programs. The quality of instruction, the access to the richness of Yogi Desai’s teachings, and the methodology used in the program is superb. This 200-hour training creates a welcoming environment for students on all paths of yoga, and ample opportunities are provided for deeply personal work while gaining this necessary instruction to share one’s yoga practice with the world. The instructors in the program bring spiritual depth and knowledge that is rarely found in other programs combined with a genuine, real-world approach to the the teachings which is vital in carrying the gift of yoga to modern students.”
