"The Rising Lotus Teacher
Trainer program was an
enjoyable, and deepening
experience of my heart,
mind, and soul. My life and
practice have become one...
a journey on the yogi path
filled with awareness and
appreciation to Daniel and
Claire who taught with
so much wisdom, integrity,
and great care."
"It's a life-changing
experience! The program is
covering the history,
philosophy, anatomy, and
asanas in such depth it will
so much deepen and expand
your knowledge and
relationship with yoga and
yourself. And through it all,
you will make an incredible
circle of yogi friends. Do it!"
"Teacher Training at Rising
Lotus has been
transformational for my
practice. I joined teacher
training the day before it
started and it was a quick
decision. I had taken Claire's
class for the first time that
morning, and decided to join
right away. It ended up being
one of the best decisions and
most important sources of joy,
community, and grounding I'd
said yes to in 2022. I'm so
grateful to have met all of the
yogis in my class, and to be part
of such a supportive community.
Together we learned everything
from alignment and anatomy
to philosophy and giving dharma
talks. As a philosophy nerd,
this was such a FUN part of
the teacher training process.
There were so many things
to gain in this experience,
whether it was emotional,
physical, spiritual; everyone
had a unique experience that
benefited them. Claire makes
a wonderful teacher and leader.
She gives you the tools and
confidence to take care of your
body and others, while also
preparing you to teach. Couldn't
recommend more, and it's fun!"
