    • Review by Marietta Ruckdeschel

      "You have a very important mission of combining spirituality with healthy living and exercise. Father Thomas Francis, Monastery of the Holy Spirit I really like the feeling I get from doing yoga, a combination of looseness and strength, plus peace from additional time invested in growing my relationship with God"

      "I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your teaching and the opportunity to learn more about yoga through New Day Yoga Teacher Training. I have been teaching this year and also taking classes at studios. It has made me realize just how blessed I am to have been exposed to your approach. It truly laid a great foundation in order to pursue teaching as well as exploring yoga personally. Just wanted to let you know how grateful I am."

    • Review by Janni from Sweden

      "Hi dear Dayna, you just have to know what a blessing your teacher training manual is, first I read it like new yoga stuff to learn, now, after some years, I am deeper aware of where I am going in my Christian path and yoga, I really had to struggle the last years about what to do with my teaching and I am in the midst of the process. Anyway, I ask God to lead me, I feel a bit alone in the whole, but it really encourages me to read and study your material."
