"Review of Yia Yoga teacher training retreat"
The teacher, Katherine Sophia, is amazing. I was surprised that not only did we get through all the yoga teacher training material, but we were also able to discuss self-healing and mindset. The amount of hours spent each day on training was perfect. Because it was a small group, due to Covid, the students were able to teach 3 classes each - which has given me so much confidence to teach classes in Colorado. Katherine Sophia is a great teacher - she laid out how to teach a safe class in simple terms that made sense to me, and then encouraged us to put our own stamp on our classes. I feel truly prepared to move forward teaching on my own.

"Leerzame onddekkingsreis naar jezelf"
We kregen allemaal onwijs veel ruimte om echt onszelf te zijn en onszelf eens goed van binnen te bekijken en op deze manier kunnen groeien tot ons ware, meest pure en authentieke zelf.

The word I want do use for this training in beautiful Bali is transformative. It was more than a yoga teachertraining, it was a life experience. You learn as much about yourself and life as you do about Yoga. I liked that it was a intimate group which made it possible to create a sacred space for learning and sharing. Kaytee is an amazing teacher, knowledgable and has the ability to see what the students needs as individuals and as a group. The food and the rooms at the retreat were excellent. Thank you! <3

"One of a kind soul-body-mind transformative experience"
Kaytee is an incredible teacher and soul. She has built a unique and remarkable way in which to challenge your perception of yoga and bridge self-confidence, sacred circles, meditation, breath work, connected movement and more into a safe and supportive course environment.
It was everything I never even knew I needed.
The bonds that were built during this course reshaped my understanding of the human connection and something I will take into my life. The retreat was absolutely beautiful, nestled into the jungle setting and the food was always full of variety and very accommodating.
I learned so much from this course. I strongly recommend Kaytee to anyone looking to growth their self-acceptance, love, connectedness and consciousness either as a being or yoga teacher.

It was a wonderful month connecting with people. We got to learn so much more than just about physical yoga. Katyee has a lot of experience with being a teacher and made sure everyone had a good time and learned what we wanted to learn. She was very flexible in her schedualing and I appreciated that. If you choose this training you will be met with love and acceptence. And you will leave feeling transformed and ready to teach yoga.
