YTT 200 at Sama Yoga Center has been the most profound, fulfilling experience of my life. The depth of knowledge Rebekah and Angie possess and are willing to share with others is astounding. From anatomy to philosophy, I gained a thorough understanding of every element of Yoga, which I will always carry with me. I have become more insightful, self-reflective and confident both on and off the mat, and I will be forever grateful for the love and support I’ve received from Sama Yoga Center. Molly W.
