    "This training has been so much more than learning to teach the poses. It's an all encompassing curriculum with the student's best and highest good as the number one priority. Your passions are what makes this training program. You each have so much knowledge and the fact that you are willing to share it with all of us speaks volumes to your yoga. Thank you ladies!"

    "I enjoyed every moment of my teacher training with Sacred Art Yoga. I was in the wise and capable hands of two very masterful teachers, and their love and attention helped shaped me into the teacher I am today. Becky Jordan and Raye Lynn Rath's support continues long after you become certified through the program, and this, in addition to the well-planned curriculum, sets their teacher training program above and beyond the rest."
