AYTT Testimonials:

2016-04-03 16.04.52I came into the advanced training itching to go deeper, learn more, and to refine my understanding of the philosophy and practice of yoga. I got all of those things; we were guided deeper into practice, we read more texts, we asked questions and taught each other what we’d learned. We were led by world-class teachers and shared sacred space together. What I could not have predicted was the gentle unfolding I experienced even on the weekends I arrived exhausted, or how my experience of challenge and resistance was held with the kind of genuine compassion that permits and supports tremendous growth. To say I have been deeply transformed is an understatement, but I don’t have any other words to express how this experience has shaped and continues to shape me. If you are considering this or any other training with Allison, know that though you are ultimately the sculptor of your own journey, in my humble opinion you could not choose a more confident, gentle guide, or a sweeter community to learn, grow and practice in. – Ros Schwartz

She eased the tension of separateness, she encouraged me, she supported me, refining my love for sharing Yoga again! If you are ready to learn the blueprint of Yoga, if you are ready to surrender to reality, if you are ready to make a shift, then I highly recommend this life changing experience. ~ Sandy Delgado

Was very fortunate to have been exposed to some great teachers during the training. This training really filled in the blanks for me as it had a strong emphasis on all the classical texts of yoga, assists, Sanskrit, meditation, and chanting. We were given opportunities during training to lead public classes which were helpful. Allison is a great teacher as well as a student of yoga and has created a beautiful space. I have no regrets and am happy that I chose to do her program at Heart of Yoga School. ~ Lauren Blount

Her Veda Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training offers structured insight into the 4 main bodies of texts (Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Yoga Sutras). I now have a much better understanding of the science of yoga and a foundation for further study. In addition Allison offered me a safe and nurturing space to develop my practice as a bhakta. No words can express the meaningfulness of adding devotion and song to my life. My great thanks and love to her for opening her school to me. ~ Bret Batman

My AYTT teacher, Allison Dennis is/was AMAZING! We studied/trained hard, philosophy, physiology, practice intensives, practicum, understanding the classic treatises, kirtan, playing the harmonium, Meditation I have completed other training programs since the early 1990s–but all are paled in comparison. I feel as if I have become a really good teacher–I attribute it all to God and Allison…With Gratitude. ~ Anita LeVeaux

The heart of yoga 300 hour training offers a one on one aspect of working with a teacher, alongside group time, which helps define personal practice and became an excellent chance for me to chant with Allison. ~ Benjamin Parrish
