    Knowledgeable and compassionate trainers and the month-long session was intense -- in a very good way! I was glad to have met and spent time with our particular set of trainers, my fellow trainees and to become part of the Evolation Yoga family.

    I know I made the right decision to attend this training (4 week immersion) with Evolation. The staff and trainers are so easy to work with, really make it a point to connect with trainees on an individual and authentic level and they are competent. The registration process is seamless and they stay connected to you even after graduation and beyond. I learned yoga philosophy, anatomy, biomechanics, posture mechanics, and we had teaching clinics each day. I feel as though my teaching has transformed through the experience of teacher training. The days did not seem long; in fact, the training went by in a flash because it was certainly enjoyable. I will be pursuing the 500 hr. path with Evolation!

    I feel blessed to have Evolation in my life. The instructors are conscientious and encouraging, the hot yoga is rigorous, and the rooms are magical. My favorite instructors so far are Martyntje Kyle, Torrey Trover, and Kelley Jane Paradise, and there are plenty of instructors with whom I haven't yet had the pleasure of practicing A great place to practice Hot yoga (although flow and Yin are also available); if you're not sure if you'll like Hot yoga, I recommend that you try it here, in the big room, overlooking the ocean. Enjoy.

    Never thought I would like yoga. Now me and my husband are addicted. Great studio overlooking ocean and great teachers. I love it all.

    Evolation Yoga is new to our community and is a great addition. This is one of the nicest yoga studios I have had the pleasure to experience, equally matched with outstanding teachers. If you haven't had a chance to experience this outstanding place, please treat yourself. The ocean view is nice.

    Evolation is a sleek, modern yoga studio that offers Hot, flow, Yin, and even kids classes. The view of the ocean from the two studio rooms is amazing. My friends and I have taken many classes here. The instructors are top-notch and very helpful during and after classes. I heard that there will be a health-conscious Italian restaurant opening one floor below the studio soon. Another great benefit! Lots of parking in the front and around the block. The owners are great people. Check it out for yourself!

    Amazing yoga space! Both studios have huge windows that let in natural light and the far wall looks out into the ocean - -allowing a really calm, bright, and inviting atmosphere. They offer a great variety of classes, both Bikram and Vinyasa, and the teachers are all so dedicated and supportive. The studio also has showers which is a huge plus when trying to fit a yoga class into a busy schedule. I highly recommend this studio!

    I was so excited a new yoga studio was opening close to my home and with classes that actually fit into my (a mom's) schedule. As a yoga teacher myself, I've been sad that the majority of studios in town all have classes at the same times - too early in the morning (before the kids are at school) or at the time when the kids need to be picked up from school. Before they opened, Evolation posted their schedule and I saw that classes would fit well into my schedule and (this is amazing), they offer kids yoga classes that coincide with some of the grown-up yoga classes. I was sold, and signed up for the pre-opening special sight unseen. Usually, things like this don't go my way. Either they're too good to be true, or there is some unseen catch that I missed in my eagerness to support a new business. Let me just say, my luck has changed! Although my practice started with Bikram / Hot yoga many years ago, it has been a long time since I practiced that style of yoga. I'm more of a Vinyasa (flow) girl. But I decided to try out all of the classes, and I've been nothing but thrilled. The Hot 90 class is a Bikram class (with a few minor alterations - a few poses are only done once and the sit-up is different), and it reminds me of all the things I used to like about Bikram (the amazing workout, the detoxification, the ritual of it all), without all the things I never liked about Bikram (teachers who don't offer modifications, smelly carpeted rooms).If I am going to sweat and, well, yes, suffer for 90 minutes, I'm happy to get to do it in a light, airy room with beautiful floors and a view of the ocean across the street. And the teachers are fantastic and supportive and very clear. I feel amazing after every class! Same goes for the warm 60, a watered down Bikram class in a less boiling hot room, where most poses are done once, one is skipped, and a few are done twice. That's the one I go to while my kids have the best time in the kids class in the next room! Seriously, babysitting but so much more and at a great price (20 USD for five classes). My husband even comes with me on Sundays and loves it. A great family activity - who knew? I've also been going to some of the flow classes. Both the regular teachers and the subs have all been really good. The other day, the sub gave one of the best classes I've ever taken. Of course, she was just in from out of town, but I learned that she was in town because she trains Evolation's flow teachers. That means this place can only get better and better. A beautiful addition to our town!

    At 66 years old and after 36 years of nursing practice, and 13 years of hot yoga practice, I decided to attend TheHotTT's first 500 hour, 2 month residential, yoga teacher training. The experience was transformative in so many ways. The food and lodgings were wonderful. Living and training with a relatively small group of dedicated yogis was very stimulating and enlivening. The curriculum was detailed, well thought out, engaging and delivered by an incredible array of highly skilled and experienced teacher trainers. There was a lot of memorization for the hot yoga dialogues; and, there was so much more. We studied the Patanjali Yoga Sutras, the Bhagavad Gita. We had weekend seminars in partner yoga, Kriya yoga, yoga for children. We had extensive posture mechanics trainings and anatomy. I now teach yoga in my home town.

    I left the Evolation training, confident in my teaching. I learned so much, not only about the 90 minute Hot yoga class, and what words you have to say, but also anatomy, philosophy, meditation, and the most of all, I learned about was myself.
