    “I’m grateful and amazed at how my personal yoga practice has incrementally and steadily improved through the RDYT200 training in the past year. The technical and theoretical instruction is very accessible no matter where an individual is on his/her yogic journey. Kavita and Alex are world-class teachers who demonstrate deep knowledge, caring and brilliant senses of humour. It is a privilege and a joy to participate in this learning.”
  • ★★★★★
    “The RDYT200 yoga teacher training was a transformative, valuable experience. The care and attention taken in developing and delivering both the written materials and classroom content is evident and valuable. The attention to alignment, biomechanics and safety is well balanced with rich history and cultural content in a welcoming environment. This is an opportunity to deepen your connection with your own mind and body as well as learning how to best serve your students. The time and space between classes is helpful for absorption of the content and I would highly recommend this program for anyone with a yoga practice whether they plan to teach or not.”

    What a wealth of knowledge Kavita brings to the RDY200 and YFL training. She presents the information in a very understandable way, relating yogic science to similarities with western science. From the community of fellow teachers in training to all the things I have learnt so far, it was an amazing, enjoyable and educational experience for me. It has moved me so far along in my personal growth. Thinking teacher training is only to become a yoga teacher couldn’t be further from the truth. While it is the goal for many taking this training, it is also a tremendous opportunity for self development and growing your personal practice. And who knows, you might change your mind and become a teacher!

    “My teacher training experience through Red Door Yoga far exceeded my expectations and was truly one of the most rewarding decisions of my life. Kavita possesses an incredible depth of knowledge and it’s clear from her training materials and course delivery that she is meant to be a teacher. The YFL and RDYT200 programs provided me with the theoretical knowledge and practical experience to feel confident as a new teacher, and have inspired me to remain on the yogic path. I look forward to my continued studies with Kavita and the Red Door Yoga faculty.”

    “After falling in love with Kavita’s teachings and leadership, I was inspired to begin my journey to ultimately become a certified 500 Level Yoga Instructor through the instruction program offered at Red Door Yoga. This seemed like a natural next step in my evolution as a yogi. However, I am naturally an introverted person with a busy family life and my own business to run – so it was with I had some trepidation about my ability to pull this off. Once I got started taking the courses offered by Kavita and her team I was immediately captivated. Kavita’s depth of knowledge and teaching methodology and the support she and my fellow students offered me gave me the confidence to keep evolving as a person and ultimately a teacher. The quality of instruction, professionalism, commitment to yogic philosophy and excellent course materials (that I regularly refer back to years later) left me feeling confident and capable in front of my own class – and I am grateful for the many blessings of the teacher training program at Red Door Yoga.“
