WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"I can’t say thank you enough to express how grateful I am for YogaMcc and The Meditation Teacher Training Program. You have made such a huge impact on my life. During this past 11 months You have walked with me through some of the most turbulent times in my life and for that, I am eternally grateful. When I started this journey I was nervous and self conscious. Now I finish this journey feeling confident and able to stand in my power. You and all of the beautiful instructors helped me with that. My personal growth has been huge. My family has become resilient. Thank you for providing a safe container that I could feel vulnerable in. That I could share my experiences in and a place that I knew I had support and love. Thank you for pushing forward through all of the challenges put in front of you to provide an amazing program over zoom. Incredible job! The Meditation Teacher Training was beautiful. I have gained new friendships and a deep respect for You personally. I thought when I started this journey that it was simply something I wanted to do.. to teach.... But little did I know just how much I NEEDED it... how much my family NEEDED it. I have said it before and I will continue to say it.... You saved our family. I can not wait to share the knowledge I have gained to help others. This entire experience has changed my life and my family's life. I am deeply blessed to have been taught by such wonderful teachers and so grateful that they shared their knowledge and having shared space with such beautiful souls these past 11 months. Attending the retreat in person in August was such a powerful and enriching experience... My soul needed it. I am rich beyond measure. Now I am ready to go do great things!

I have tears running down my face and my heart is so full. Thank you so much for putting this training together. Each module has held so much value and you really found the right combination of teachers to share with us. The wisdom, insight and humour they brought to each lesson is something I will always cherish. The opportunity to connect in person for the retreat and learn from David and Anita prior to David's passing is special to me. The amount of gratitude and heaviness I feel looking back on that opportunity reminds me of how impactful people can be in short glimpses. I know these past two years have held numerous obstacles and challenges for you, and I am so grateful that despite that, you were able to meet us in the space - and more so, create that space for us to meet. I know words cannot capture it all - thank you from the bottom of my heart.

YogaMcc is such a wonderful studio. The MTT was facilitated by knowledgeable, kind and supportive instructors, and the studio owners were very communicative and open, and provided a wonderful container for learning, experiencing and sharing.
