This program and its teachers have gone above and beyond & I feel that all of my expectations of the program have been overwhelmingly met and more. Within this training a family has been built, and needless to say it has become one of the most comfortable and safest places to share feelings, insights, and opinions amongst a group. 

Anyone who is interested in furthering his or her yoga, health, and fitness knowledge, looking for an opportunity to explore the self, or wanting to be a part of a life changing program, I highly recommend Tantra Power Yoga’s teacher training because of its many outstanding instructors, the incredible information that is learned, and the personal growth that I have observed in myself and all the other participants...I am thrilled to have committed my time and efforts to this teacher training and I cannot wait to share this powerful knowledge with others.

I went on my first Big Creek Yoga retreat with Jodie Lea 2 years ago.  What an experience!  Such an incredible and moving journey over those 5 days in the woods.  I knew I would never be the same.  I also had no idea at the time what that retreat was preparing me for over the next two years.  

About a month after this retreat, I found out about my dad’s cancer diagnosis.  I was completely unaware the impact that diagnosis was going to have on me over the next 18 months.  There were countless moments of sadness, anger, tears, and struggles.  It was through my husband’s and family’s love and support, Jodie’s words and guidance, and my yoga and meditation practice that I was finally able to find some clarity, strength and peace. 

I had dabbled in yoga over the years and always loved it.  The problem was, I would go regularly for about 6-9 months and then stop for long gaps.  I would just begin to glimpse the effects a regular practice has on you, then life would get in the way and yoga would slip away.  

I have many friends who had gone through yoga teacher trainings and had talked about how it had changed their lives for the better.  It had always intrigued me for the personal growth and development, but I really didn’t want to teach yoga, so I figured it wasn’t for me.  After lots of contemplation, I finally decided I needed to step up and continue the work I had started over the previous 18 months.  I knew I wasn’t finished on that path of discovery and decided this would be a safe place to further my journey.

During that first module in March I felt a change within me.  I knew immediately that this wasn’t going to be an easy journey, but one that was going to be worth taking.  Since that time, I feel I have grown as a teacher, a friend, a wife, but most of all, as a human being.  In July we finished up our Big Creek Retreat as part of our Teacher Training.  At the closing of the retreat, feeling like I had come full circle from two years ago, all I could say was, “My Heart is Full”.  

I can’t say enough about this program and these people I got to share it with.  There are a lot of amazing and talented people in this town to learn from, but I was lucky enough to have Jodie open the doors and set out the welcome mat for me.  To support me when I needed the help and to nudge me when I was afraid to leap.  I feel truly blessed and am so excited to see what’s in store for my next chapter.  Namaste.

My name is Sydney and I graduated from the 200 Hour Teacher Training program in February, 2017. This journey gave me a solid community of people to come back to and some of the most insightful discussions I’ve gotten to take part of. Having each module go in order of the chakras really helped me feel complete by the end of the program. I was able to refine the asanas I’ve become accustomed to and expand my expertise with each pose. I was also able to make it to so many more yoga classes in the week because students receive free classes while in the program. I’ve learned so much from the teachers and students at Tantra and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to dive deeper into the self, become more confident & connected and also feel like they belong somewhere.
