The teacher training course at Corpo is not only extremely comprehensive, it is also challenging, well thought out, and professionally presented. Twelve women from different backgrounds and ages (20-60) came together with a variety of expectations and goals. During our journey, the bond we formed, the acceptance we discovered and the true meaning of yoga "to yoke" "to unite" was made complete. With open hearts and open minds, these students became my friends and are now my family. The experience we shared was made possible by a knowledgeable and encouraging teaching staff headed up by Kelly Brandon and supported by Beatriz and Joan. Guests teachers also rounded out our training to provide one of the most. comprehensive yoga curriculums provided in South Florida. My passion for yoga enhanced by the experience of my teacher training at Corpo Yoga has ignited within me a desire to share the amazing gift of yoga with everyone.” By Cathy Gabler “It wasn’t just about yoga or learning how to teach yoga. It was a life changing experience for me. CORPO TTC was one of the best things I have ever done for myself.” By Judi Carreño
