Previous experience from a student:

"The Yogi Facilitator leadership program has been a very valuable additional training to my yoga teacher trainings. It has given me a better understanding of the mechanisms of emotional and mental wellbeing and how to best facilitate yoga. In this training Kristin combines so beautifully the science of psychology and yoga, which has given me a stronger foundation for facilitating yoga. And I am also very impressed by Kristin’s guidance. Even in an online training, she creates a save and joyful learning environment for every participant!"- José Rog-Zoet
