An inspiring note from Carly Daley regarding Training. 

I signed up for training because I wanted to learn about yoga from a new perspective and I was curious about teaching.  I also wanted to learn how to communicate with others gracefully and effectively.  I ended up learning and growing in ways that I wasn't expecting.

On the first weekend of training, I remember taking my mat to the sanctuary as I typically would do when I arrive for class.  I remember hearing others outside talking, socializing, and I sensed excitement and commotion.  I wanted to stay away from the excitement, on my mat and in my own head.  Because of the work I did through the training, I am not fearful of opening up to others or meeting new people; it does not cause stress or anxiety.  

I am interested in others, accepting of myself among others, and what seemed like commotion in the past feels like vitality and connection.  I love that feeling.  The teacher training helped me break down my barriers, leaving me with a peaceful feeling whether I am taking time to myself or being with others.  The training gave me an incredible opportunity for growth.   


An inspiring note from Sarah Evans regarding Training.

The Teacher Training Program is an experience that I will forever be grateful for. It not only gave me a deeper insight into my practice, but it also woke me up to myself and my life. It has brought positive change to my relationships, my career, and view of myself and my place in this world. The relationships created and strong yoga community that develops is an added bonus.   

An inspiring note from Katie Thompson regarding Training

“Yoga takes you into the present moment, the only place where life exists.”  Anonymous  

Yoga training with Jennifer Wright at Urban Body Yoga has forever changed my life.  Through the 200 hour teacher training I discovered and conquered the fears that have held me back from being the best I can be.  I learned that anything is possible and breath by breath I can make change happen.  As a working mother, I was always in a constant rush, often distracted and sometimes even in a panic.  

Through the Baptiste-inspired training with Jennifer I was able to become aware and focused.  I discovered how to stay calm and to respond, instead of react.  This knowledge has deeply impacted my life and my loved ones.  Our family is more connected because of my awareness from yoga training.  Training with Jennifer has made me a better leader, a braver adventurer, a better friend, a happier wife and forgiving mother.  I know for sure that anything I wish for, I can make happen.  

Thank you Jen, you are a rare and special gift; thank you for this amazing experience.


An Inspiring note from Jamey Banowetz regarding Training

...Teacher training gave me the ability to recognize what I wanted out of life. I was able to identify what was important to me, and given the tools to effectively communicate with others. By dropping the "need to be perfect," and developing confidence to be myself, I have discovered that I have become a more effective leader. It is much easier for me to create connections with others because they see the "real me," and not some unrealistic "ideal."
