Urban Empowerment Training changed my life. My sister encouraged me to sign up for the program. I was working through some really tough circumstances at the time, trying to stay afloat. Our instructors encouraged us to "be a yes" right away; to be open and honest with our community of teacher trainees. And this made all the difference! This experience forced me to stop living life like it was happening TO me, and start living life with presence and intention. The lessons, combined with the application in the physical practice, allowed me to identify and heal some deep wounds and emerge as a stronger and more balanced woman. I learned so much about who I am, what I need to be healthy (both mentally and physically), and that ALL of it is in my power to obtain, if only I say "I am ready now!"

Urban Empowerment Teacher Training is a fantastic program for anyone looking to deepen their yoga practice, make strong connections with others in the community, and develop as a leader. I am very grateful for the commitment I made to do this program. Each session is meticulously thought through, but each person is given the space to grow in their own personal way. In addition to the physical practice and fundamentals of instruction, there is a focus on mindfulness and meditation. I graduated with tools and connections with others that I continue to draw upon for support and guidance. Be a YES!

Wow, I can say so much about Urban Empowerment Teacher Training program! I’m a wife and a mother of five children. My husband and I️ pastor a church and I have a fitness business. So, extra time is not available! The Urban Empowerment Teacher Training Program was exactly what I️ needed. The weekend scheduling of the program complemented my family, work and church commitments. The instructors were amazing, more importantly the training was so much more than learning how to teach Yoga! All the sessions were learning and leadership exercises that were applicable to any and all of life’s experiences. The time and financial investment was well worth it. The Urban Empowerment Teacher Training enhanced my life. If you are looking for more out of yourself, more out of what you enjoy, looking to grow in all areas of your life and how you can serve others better, this program is for you!!
Carly Daley, Yoga Instructor at The Hot Room, Indianapolis
I signed up for training because I wanted to learn about yoga from a new perspective and I was curious about teaching. I also wanted to learn how to communicate with others gracefully and effectively. I ended up learning and growing in ways that I wasn't expecting.
On the first weekend of training, I remember taking my mat to the sanctuary as I typically would do when I arrive for class. I remember hearing others outside talking, socializing, and I sensed excitement and commotion. I wanted to stay away from the excitement, on my mat and in my own head. Because of the work I did through the training, I am not fearful of opening up to others or meeting new people; it does not cause stress or anxiety.
I am interested in others, accepting of myself among others, and what seemed like commotion in the past feels like vitality and connection. I love that feeling. The teacher training helped me break down my barriers, leaving me with a peaceful feeling whether I am taking time to myself or being with others. The training gave me an incredible opportunity for growth.
