“Rocky really wowed me. He is a rock star and I feel so privileged to have observed and taken in information from him. Rocky is a distinctly colorful individual who happens to embody a similar level of excellence to Noah. I fell in love with Rocky in this program and would highly recommend him to everyone as a teacher and a guide”  – Carol King

“ I would highly recommend the YOGAMAZÉ 200 hour teacher training because it’s not just about learning to teach yoga poses. It’s learning about yourself. It’s about individual growth. That’s why I chose to study with YOGAMAZÉ. Through this training I’ve become much more observant and gained awareness and understanding of what the poses do for our bodies. I joined the program to deepen my knowledge, but it has also been about evolvement in my own being. It’s been scary, exciting, very emotional and wonderful for me.” – Laura Wang

“ I came into this program knowing very little and as we progressed through the modules and online discussions, I noticed that I developed good and strong habits that are effecting more than just my teaching yoga. This training has deepend my own practice and my understanding of the poses as well as of the history and discipline surrounding yoga. The program has introduced me to a new community of people and I have made friends and family as we struggle, learn and prevail together. ” – Nicholas Trubachick
