Kootenay Yoga School was exactly what I was looking for & honestly needed to receive my 200 hr Yoga Teacher certificate. Everyone associated with Kootenay was absolutely amazing & I felt very looked after during this intensive journey. Michelle made learning all the principals, limbs & postures of yoga relatable & easy to absorb, I never felt completely overwhelmed by the amount of information we had to learn. Not to mention the passion behind what not only Michelle but everyone who is associated with Kootenay is incredible to feel & be a part of everyday. The food absolutely amazing...cough, cough would buy a Kootenay cookbook. My fellow group of students were also amazing & I will forever be grateful for their support, laughs & friendships. I would highly recommend this program to anyone ready to embark on this journey.

This was one of the best experiences of my entire life. From the moment that I landed everything ran smoothly. Lisa is absolutely incredible and is the best at what she does. Michelle was by far the best yoga teacher and I'm forever grateful for this company and all that I've learned. They set you up to Win and to truly understand all this yoga info. I came in thinking about doing yoga teacher training to heal my body but what I got was way more. I got reconnected back to myself, my heart, and my identity. I'm now wanting to make a difference and support others on this path. Everything about this experience was amazing, to the clean rooms, the food was amazing, the little surprises, and the beautiful energy. I'd say YES.... you will thank yourself for coming to Kootenay Yoga Teacher Training. 5 stars plus... I'm excited to continue my yoga education with this school. Thank you again. my heart is full.

Kootenay Yoga school was the best thing that has happened to me on my travels through Mexico. The people there are so incredibly attentive and kind. The quality and care put into the Teacher Training really showed through my 15 days there. I didn’t want it to end. Michelle was such an engaging teacher and made learning the material more interesting and fun than it already was. I will definitely be coming back here to do my future trainings. 1000/10 recommend- if you’re on the fence, JUST DO IT! You won’t regret it

Best program ever!!! Totally transformative experience - everything from the teachers to the location to the curriculum to the food was 10/10. A very well-rounded program that fostered connection, knowledge, exchange, confidence, healing, accountability and more. I feel very prepared to begin teaching my first yoga classes and through the program I now have amazing new friends who I hope will be in my life for years to come. The only (arguable) negatives - or rather just things to potentially prepare for - were the heat/humidity (I didn't mind it but be prepared to SWEAT all day, all night lol - no AC does make quality sleep tough for sensitive sleepers; luckily the program provided ample fans!) and the mosquitoes (bring twice as much bug spray as you think you'll need or purchase it there - they were mostly annoying in the early morning and early evening, and the program helped alleviate that annoyance by having the place professionally sprayed and frequently lighting mosquito coils and incense). Seriously an extraordinary place and program - would do it again in a heartbeat!!!!! Love love loved everyone involved.

I had an amazing two weeks yoga teacher training off-grid in the Kootenays. As it was off-grid, we were told that the food would be basic, but it's not true... Lisa and Brenda were great quality host and the food was fabulous. The accommodation (shared tent) was good and comfortable. Michelle was a great yoga instructor, she is very supportive, and established a good environment for learning where everyone could speak freely and asked questions. She gave us great inside and tips about yoga and I learn and deepened my knowledge so much during this two weeks, thank you! The organiser had no control over this, but the weather was perfect and the group of participants was extraordinary! Overall the quality/price ratio of this training is very good, and I highly recommend it.
