I took the RYT 200 class in the Spring of 2020, during COVID-19. Emily’s organization and comfort with an online platform made her program seem like it was always an online school. I say this as a compliment because I had access to material, lectures, and Emily without feeling like I was in fact 1,600 miles away from Puyallup, WA. I was mentored, my questions were answered, and I was in part of a new yogi community. In no way did I experience less of an education or a watered-down version of an RYT 200 training. Her professionalism is above par. Emily is passionate about yoga, but her course empowered me to create a lifestyle where yoga fits in and thrives within my own life and practice. I learned that yoga goes beyond the mat at the HOT26 School of Yoga. I am stronger; I have a better sense of my yoga journey and most importantly, I can graciously accept with the challenge of bringing yoga to others with the same care and compassion I learned at Hot26 School of Yoga. I’m walking away with a tool that will continue to shape and grow with me for life; that is invaluable.

"Hot26 School of Yoga’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program was a great experience. It was a friendly environment where I was supported, challenged, and encouraged to find my inner voice. It was no judgement and accepting no matter my yoga skill level and experience. It gave me a new perspective and insight into myself. It has taught me things about myself that I never acknowledged before. I was already on a healing journey before I came this training. Truly It was the perfect time for me to heal from my past. Words can not express the lightness that I feel. This training ignite a life long passion for practice, study, and teaching Yoga. Thanks Emily!"

I believe the practice of yoga and what it includes is Emily.  The environment she creates and builds around her proves this.  She walks, lives, and breathes within this philosophy.  Thru this students engage them selves and learn new perspectives.  The program gives an excellent foundation for yoga.

This training beyond exceeded my expectations!  It has been one of the hardest, challenging, emotional, and rewarding times of my life.  There may have been times where it didn't feel like it, but it turns out it was exactly what I needed in my life.  Emily's patience and compassion is so encouraging.  Her deep knowledge and passion really shines through.  I'm so happy I did it and encourage anyone who wants to know more about yoga and life in general to sign up.

Yoga has always been an interest to me.  I would practice it every now and then but it was never a constant.  Since taking my Yoga Teacher Training I have been able to practice yoga daily and it has truly changed my life.  I have been able to stay more present in everything that I do, recognize my emotions, and be more in tune with my mind and body at every single part of my day.  I notice when I miss a few days of Yoga now.  I love how I have gained more strength, flexibility, and awareness of my limits.  This training goes so much deeper than just the 26 postures and two breaths.  I thought that Hot26 was so boring when I first started doing it, but since coming to school at Hot26, it is my favorite yoga.  You can truly see the improvements in your body with practicing regularly.  This Hot26 Yoga Teacher Training has been such a blessing and I'm so excited to keep on practicing and improving my mind and body.  Thank you to everyone in the Hot26 Program that has helped me and my teacher training skills.  Thank you to my classmates for making this such a memorable experience and thank you especially to Emily for all your time and life lessons you have taught to our class.  It's been such an amazing journey watching everyone grow into even more amazing human beings than they already were.  You have been the greatest life coach I could ask for.  Thank you Hot26 for everything!

I came into my training expecting to learn postures and Sanskrit, but what I got was so much more.  I received the tools to begin looking inward, to heal myself of wounds long since passed that simply lived in the back of my mind.  I made new friendships that I will never forget and I found myself open to more giving relationships after my own selfishness and competitiveness was revealed to me.  I am working on becoming more humble and a better version of myself using the 8 limbs as a guide down the correct path.  Thank you so very very much!

This has been an incredible journey, and I know it has only just begun for me.  The training has provided me the foundation I was looking for, from improving my postures, to self-reflection, from understanding my skeletal limitations, to listening to my body, from self-discipline in learning my dialogue, to perseverance.  I have appreciated everything this training has to offer.  It wasn't easy, but it has been very rewarding.  From the bottom of my heart...thank you!

Best training available. I was able to teach a 90 minute Hot 26 class on the day of my graduation. I was also given enough business guidance and information to open my first yoga studio just 6 1/2 months after graduation. Take this class!!!!
