What Others Have to Say…
Here is what some our recent graduates have to say about Tula Teacher Training Programs:
“This has honestly been one of the best experiences of my life. Tula was something I looked forward to and I wouldn’t have missed a class for anything. Jen you are such an amazing teacher and so supportive. I feel so incredibly fortunate to have taken my first training with you. You have given me more confidence and so much encouragement. Tula will always be my Yoga home.” – Andi Rankin
“I loved this whole experience Jennifer! It was so comprehensive and well organized. I learned so much from your style of teaching, tone, and personality. You are an amazing teacher! I loved meeting everyone and bonding together. I have grown and learned so much in this training!” ~ Heather M.
“Jen, your teacher training program is out of this world. It has been such an honor to be a part of this program and to gain all of the confidence and knowledge that I have learned from you. I am so happy that several years ago you decided to quit your job and teach yoga. That is exactly what you were meant to do. The passion you have to teach others to teach is so inspiring and so lovely; you have a wonderful gift. You always give your all and that without your sincerity and genuine happiness and love for all that you do, we can never be where we are today.”~ Stephanie Garafola
“Jennifer is truly a blessing for all aspiring Yoga teachers. Her teaching, knowledge, encouragement and ongoing support made this training an exceptional experience. I am eternally grateful to Jennifer and to Tula for this life changing experience.” – Sonja Ilijas
“Tula’s Teacher Training was a wonderful experience. It helped me deepen my practice and showed me the best way to share my experience and practice with others. The training had extensive material to expand your knowledge about yoga, meditation, and pranayama. Jennifer, along with many other teachers, shared their expertise in there field. The atmosphere was warm and friendly and everyone supported each other to feel comfortable in the process.” -Alexandria R.
