"Inner Power Yoga empowers us as individuals and perpetuates a yoga movement at large. Deeply rooted in Tantra, myth, anatomy, psychology–it is woven together to magically feel BALANCED. I can say with confidence that anyone who undergoes this training leaves with more steadiness and more ease–in their body, yoga practice and teaching as well as in their heart-mind. That to me is a great place to begin as a teacher! Personally speaking, it is also great place to continue as an experienced teacher. Despite teaching for over a decade, I had no idea the Inner Power I was missing until I went through this training and got my dose of Shakti! Gratefully, my life is forever changed."
–G. Fruchey, Fort Wayne IN.
