Nothing has gotten me more committed to my practice than yoga training! It was a unique experience, unlike any learning I had ever done before! It challenged me physically, mentally, and spiritually. I started by taking the course just to improve my own practice. I thought if I ever taught yoga that’d be icing on the cake. Boy was I right! I have grown to love teaching just as much as I love practicing. Everything I learned from yoga teacher training stays with me from overcoming fears, to being in inquiry about the way I live my life, to proper alignment in chutarunga. I am so grateful for MaryRose, Dr. Mike, and Julia for a holding the space for me to transform and providing me with the tools I needed to be where I am today.

The teacher training program at Firefly Yoga was life changing and transformative. It led to a greater sense of awareness and connection to myself and others. My practice and understanding of yoga deepened significantly. I’m grateful for the opportunity and growth that accompanied it.
Community, connection, and transformation; this is what I gained at the end of a 200 hour yoga teacher training. Firefly’s program focuses on Baptiste methodology. I learned Baron Baptiste’s empowering sequence of asana, nurtured a meditation practice, and embarked on a spiritual awakening. The themes of Baptiste yoga have radiated into all areas of my life, allowing me to cultivate meaningful connection with others and bring grace, gratitude, and understanding to my own place of being. Though the 200 hours was an intensive study of anatomy, inquiry, yoga history, and leadership skills, the love and support of MaryRose and the team was encouraging and motivating. I built lasting relationships with my fellow yogis and became part of the warm and welcoming family at Firefly. The yoga teacher training opened me up to the courage to be up to something big!
200 hour yoga teacher training with Mary Rose at Firefly was a transformative experience. This unique experience left me with so much more than the ability to teach a yoga class. This program brought awareness to my mind and body. The themes of Baptiste yoga encourage me to be my fully expressed self in all areas of my life. In addition to this journey of self discovery, I gained a whole family of yogis. We were fortunate enough to have Mary Rose gracefully and powerfully lead us in becoming confident yoga teachers.
