Read what graduate and teacher Leyette Ross has to say about her
Beyond 200 Hour Hatha YTT program experience…

Why do you love teaching yoga?

Teaching yoga is like sharing a part of myself. It takes a vulnerability to stand in front of the group and open myself up. But it isn’t about me. It’s about each individual person in the class. Each come with their own goals and needs. When I have the feeling of reaching someone through my class theme or sequencing, it really is the best reward.

Why did you enjoy the Beyond 200 Hour Hatha YTT and why would you recommend this YTT?

I did my research and looked around at different teacher trainings. I knew this was the one for me when I met with the instructors. I went to their classes and got to know their styles. Between Carole, Diane and Kimberly, we got varied perspectives and differences in experience and expertise. It brought so much more to our training that we got to learn from all of them.

One of my favourite things about the teacher training at Beyond, was that it brought such a unique group of people together. Each of the students brought our own unique backgrounds, interests, and experiences to YTT. This cross section of people may not have had the chance to come together in another situation, but we learned a lot from each other, including how to look at yoga from different perspectives. From the asanas to the whole body/mind/spirit connection and the benefits: both intrinsic and physical, we learned from each other as well as our teachers. This brought so much more to our training and I believe it helped better prepare me to teach a cross section of students once I completed the course. I’m very thankful for Carole, Diane and Kimberly. They took my interest in yoga and expanded and grew it and now I can’t wait to continue learning and exploring!
