I can’t say enough great things about this duo and their teacher training. I’d take it again to further my skills!

Training Participant

Little Buddhas teacher training was incredible! Courtney and Diane made it fun, ignited a spark in those of us attending, and made it personally applicable to our future goals.  I learned invaluable tips and tricks for constructing a class and modifying plans to meet the needs of participants. Their ideas for games, mindfulness training across the ages (preschool too!), and breath work are clear and engaging. Most importantly, they provided such a wealth of material in their amazingly comprehensive written manual…I still rely on that a year later because each time I go through it, I find new ideas and material for teaching children’s yoga classes!
