Combining precise, therapeutic alignment with the richness and diversity of life-affirming Tantric philosophy, DIG Yoga offers what I believe to be one of the most comprehensive, practical and inspiring 200-hour yoga teacher trainings in the area. Taking the DDYS 200 training was a life-changing experience for me. It not only deepened my own practice, but also transformed how I relate to and teach my students. With a curriculum full of practice teaching, proper sequencing and a thorough examination of anatomy and physiology, this training prepares prospective or experienced teachers with the knowledge and guidance they need to teach a diversity of students safely and confidently (whether in a group or private setting). The homework and in-class time devoted towards journaling, self-reflection, chanting and meditation greatly infused my life and teaching with compassion, gratitude and joy. Sue and Naime are truly teachers’ teachers, and I am forever grateful for having studied with them.
