 Some Testimonials (more here): 

The YTT was exceptional!  It far exceeded my expectations.  Brett, Siri, Naresh & Shirley all brought their wisdom, knowledge and best of all, a sense of humor to every lesson.  I appreciated the detail on alignment to perform yoga safely.  I feel I learned an incredible amount of information and was supported throughout it all.”  M.D.

“The YTT at Ekahi caught my eye because of the emphasis on science and anatomy as well as the affordable price and ideal scheduling. When I went to go check out the center, I can honestly say that I have never felt more welcomed into a space in my entire life. The moment that you walk into the Ekahi center, you feel a sense of family or oneness.

Prior to teacher training, I had practiced yoga at a different studio in Kelowna for 6 years – once I started training at the Ekahi Centre I was astonished about how little I actually knew about yoga. The YTT at the Ekahi center not only transformed my yoga practice but also transformed my life. I was fearful about teaching my own class but the knowledge and encouragement I received provided me with the confidence I needed to lead a class. Siri, Brett, Naresh, and Shirley are so loving, knowledgeable and passionate about teaching and the practice of yoga; I feel so privileged and grateful that I was able to learn from them.

I highly recommend this program to anyone who is considering YTT – be ready for lots of love, laughter, learning and enlightenment.” KF

“I wasn’t sure what to expect when I signed up for the 200 hour yoga teacher training at Ekahi studio. I researched the teachers and they came from very different backgrounds and had a lot of experience, so I was optimistic from that aspect.
What I wasn’t sure about was I hadn’t done any serious studying for 35 years! I quickly came to realize that the vast age difference of the students in the class gave us a good variety of backgrounds and what we each had to offer.
The physical mental and emotional training was intense and completely worthwhile. It felt to me that each of the four teachers poured their heart and soul into training each and everyone of us.
This has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. I come away from the training with a renewed sense of purpose, confidence and optimism.
I feel well prepared to begin teaching yoga.
Thank you wonderful Ekahi teacher training Yogis”
From the heart,

“I’m in gratitude every day for Ekahi. 2 years ago this month I walked through the doors. Looking for a safe place to deepen my yoga practice. I wanted to learn more,understand the mind chatter and understand what being in the moment really meant. Over the last 2 years I have changed a lot internally. Not only with my relationship with myself but also with all other relationships in my life. I have had many amazing teachers and fellow students next to me breathing and in stillness, sharing this journey with me. Kinda like silent cheerleaders! Never would I imagine 2 years ago I would be in front of the class guiding. This has been a huge life changing few months at the studio. Going back to school mid life with 7 other extraordinary woman from the valley. The YTT at ekahi really changes everything in your life.. And for this I Thank SIRI,BRETT,SHIRLEY and NARESH…. You have all taught me so much and HELPED deepen my practice. I can’t express how much graditude I have for all the Love and support and knowledge you all have shown me.. I will continue everyday to wake up and Yes to my health and ekahi my home studio.. May we all fumble with GRACE AND CONTINUE TO SHARE OUR LOVE OF YOGA.”
