What our Graduates Say
If you are thinking about taking an advanced yoga training, I highly recommend the Soul of Yoga’s Sundara 300 hour program!  This training takes the yoga experience and training experience to a whole new level. It is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to study intimately with some of the most highly acclaimed Master Yoga teachers in the world today. I am often in awe of the many decades of study, practice and discipline that these teachers have gone through to gain the knowledge they have, and how they so generously share it with us. It is a priceless and precious gift. 
Leana Levinsohn,
The Sundara 300 Yoga Teacher Training changed my life.  Studying with Master Teachers and understanding the richness of the various yoga traditions helped me better understand my students and myself.  It gave be the skills and confidence to become a yoga studio owner, create a yoga school, and to teach anyone that walks into my class.  Sundara College not only provides the training necessary to evolve as a yoga teacher, it also nourishes the Soul.  One is immersed in an environment of Love and finds deep peace and awareness within Self.  It is from this loving Self that my Soul teaches yoga.  
Malisa Bobbitt,
When I signed up for the training, I had no idea that it was going to change everything in my life. On the personal level, the most important part is that I learned about LOVE like I didn’t know existed! This changed everything else in my life, the way I see myself and others, the way I interact with everyone that crosses my path, and it showed me why I’m here right now, I found the purpose of this lifetime!
Now I have tools to deal with daily situations and circumstances that before it would take over my mind and my heart, and lived with all that building inside me, making my life stressful and many times sad.
I now live with joy, I find peace in simple things.
Life is a challenge, every day…but I now i know how to surrender and find the way out.
As a yoga teacher, oh my, I have so much to teach, that I have to contain myself! The change in my life is clear in my teachings, the confidence, knowledge, that the sundarian training gave me, it’s a true gift.
I really don’t know how to express the gratitude to, Tom, trisha, Monique, Flossie and all the staff at the soul. Their dedication,the work, support, the LOVE that they give to put the program together and how they listen to us when we go through all the changes that happen while we process all the teachings.
I went to the soul of yoga to get my 300 hour yoga certification and came out with a beautiful way of life that I didn’t know it could be possible!
Elena Tate,
Upon enrolling myself in the Sundara 300 advanced teacher training at Soul of Yoga, I had completed my 200-hour certification at another yoga studio  - one where they mostly practiced vinyasa flow/power yoga in a 90-degree room. It was a great training… but since yoga is an ancient science with a variety of lineages/traditions to explore,  it wasn’t surprising to me that 200 hours felt like I had barely scratched the surface.  Living in the San Diego area there’s a ton of great yoga studios…but the Soul of Yoga is filled with students, teachers, and other staff who are all so welcoming and just oozing with love. If it was just the in-house teacher who led the training, I still would’ve signed up- no question… but then I saw their all-star guest teacher lineup for the 300-hr program and I was sold. I was sold again and almost felt like I was robbing them when I realized that this training includes continuing education for life! Maybe there are other programs who allow you to keep attending the workshops that would normally cost $100+ for a lifetime after graduating, included in price of the tuition when you enroll,  but in my initial search I didn’t find any that also offered this enormous value.  When I showed up for my first day, I did not have a regular meditation practice – I had an uncontrollable monkey mind and a bit of a ‘tude. For others like me, I can’t imagine two better teachers to help you fall in love with meditation than Tom & Trisha Kelly…beyond that, they are two deeply experienced teachers who really truly live what they teach. I could go on and on, but I will conclude with one of my favorite favorites – from the first day of attending this training, I was instantly a member of a diverse, loving community of yogis and I made many awesome life-long friends who have formed an amazing support system for my soul and my teaching career.  For these and other reasons, I consider the Sundara 300 training to be SO much more than just a teacher training I attended… it was a life-changing experience that I will continue to re-visit for the rest of my life. Thank you Soul of Yoga!
