Janice Mousseau, Owner, Yoga by Janice

All the advanced training teachers complimented me on the manual material.

I was overwhelmed in producing my first teacher training manual and couldn’t believe the training information I found on Yoga Teacher Central.

It made my first 200Hr Teacher Training so much easier as I was looking to align with Yoga Alliance for a 200hr Registered Yoga School.

I have also used the Advanced 300hr material and just completed my first 300Hr Teacher Training. All the teachers complimented me on the material for the manuals.

One of my teachers is from India and she can’t believe the advanced material Yoga Teacher Central provides. She says it is excellent.

Thank you so much Shelly/Yoga Teacher Central for your excellent material for Teacher Trainings. I couldn’t have done it without you!

I've Been Teaching 7 Years. Everyday I Learn Something New.

While my original intention was to access resources to prepare for a YTT, I have been using your site daily for self study and to level up my own knowledge/teaching. I’ve (only) been teaching for 7 years and even though it’s something I do everyday, the more I learn, the more I realize just how little I know.

Everyday, I learn something new and it makes me feel more confident teaching my classes safely. I just keep going further and further down the rabbit hole! I really appreciate you and the invaluable resources you’ve made accessible to me and the yoga community at large.  I am already a better teacher for it.  Thank you.

What You Offer is Brilliant!

I am so happy to advise that today we completed our first Yoga Teachers Training and believe that some of our students will certainly be joining you soon.  After putting this together with your lessons, I feel so proud of the outcomes of our students. What you offer is brilliant and I hope your numbers just keep growing not only for the tremendous outcomes of teachers at the other end but for all your efforts and ongoing updates. Thank you.

Wide Range of Content, Knowledge and Inspiration

I just wanted to express how fabulous all of your resources are! There’s such a wide range of content, knowledge and inspiration – I really find it so helpful and if I need to know something you are my ‘go-to’ resource.

I really love the self assessments – great in helping identify gaps and inspire the direction for my development, and the anatomy course you’ve referred to is a really well structured resource. Thanks for all that you do – it’s very much appreciated.

Appreciate the Value of the Training Manual

I have a manual for my 200hr YTT and wanted to add more information and structure it differently, but I was getting overwhelmed with the project. I found your website and was so surprised at the amount of information and knowledge that it made me smile so hard and it is absolutely worth what I paid. The amount of work and research your team has put into this base is amazing and needed so THANK YOU for making my life easier. What would’ve taken me so long to put together, now I feel confident I can put together in a week. What also makes it so good is that you have also allowed me to edit, reprint and distribute without the hassle of copyright issues. This to me is priceless! So sincerely thank you and I am glad I invested in your products!

Thorough Content, Easy Usability

I absolutely love your site; there is so much information. We are working on our student guide for our 200 hour teacher training program and I have suggested our students sign up for your membership to get amazing sequences, alignment or variations, videos, materials for workshops and much much more. I started using the site for the Ayurveda content. It is so amazing and thorough. The usability is so easy and perfect.

My Go-To for Class Planning

I’ve been teaching for 5 years and found YTC when I began teaching.  It helped me so much in varying my classes and in finding resources.  Today, it remains my go-to for class planning; I especially like the seasonal and moon themes and use them often throughout the year.  YTC is absolutely invaluable for yoga teachers.

Invaluable for Teachers and Trainers

Yoga Teacher Central is an invaluable wealth of information for yoga teachers and trainers. Here in France, we are using your Training Manual lessons for our teacher training manuals. The pictures of asanas are helpful for our slide presentations and the students love them. I appreciate working with such a good website. This is a tremendous help. Many thanks to the dedicated team of Yoga Teacher Central.

Saves Me Valuable Time in Writing Lessons & Sequencing

I just became a RYT200 and am finding that writing my lessons and trying to sequence properly is my biggest challenge. That is why your website has been so amazing. I find it so helpful! It seemed like we just touched upon sequencing and class planning right before graduation, but it just scratched the surface. I truly am grateful for this tool. It has so much information that I can use to create lessons and learn more about my practice… while saving me valuable time trying to find it on my own, like I was doing before I discovered your site! Thanks again.

Have Been Using YTC Everyday

Just wanted to thank you for this incredible resource. I really appreciate all the information. I love the theming / holidays, description links, and weekly yoga plans. I am very excited to use this. Thanks for your service. I had a great interview with a studio owner and she just offered me two classes on Saturday! I have been researching YTC everyday and it has been more than helpful.  Now, I’m really excited to put it to good use since I will be teaching regularly on the weekends. Thanks! It’s such a great resource.

Clarity and Depth is Amazing

I feel so blessed to have stumbled upon your site. I’ve gained a lot of confidence and had so much inspiration from these pages. I found talking points for lectures on topics such as teaching language, ethics, and yamas and niyamas, and beautiful insights sprinkled across the web pages. The amount of information and the clarity and depth is amazing. What a beautiful thing you’ve offered! The yoga teacher trainings I led in Bali were seamless and flowed brilliantly, and I have you to thank for creating this site, helping me brush up on some topics and discover new ideas to incorporate into the 2.5 hour morning flows.
