      "The yoga teacher training from Living in the Self with Tiffany and Kristof is absolutely unlike any other. It has changed my life, brought fruit to all of my relationships, and helped me grow in ways I didn’t know were possible. It has been one of the most emotionally, mentally, and physically challenging and rewarding things I have ever done."
