"The number one reason I chose this program was how I felt at the info session. Everyone was very welcoming and I felt that it was a group I wanted to be a part of. I liked that Carrie has such a diverse background. The schedule was also a factor because it was spread out and not weekend heavy like so many programs are. The flexibility is appealing in case life happens, which it always does!"

"I waited a year to take Yoga Teacher Training with Barre & Soul because I feel connected to the studio and supported here. I always appreciate the amazing teachers and expert instruction I receive. I wanted a quality education from a studio that embodies the qualities I aspire to as a teacher. The schedule accommodated my wild, crazy life, the payment plan made it affordable and the presenters were amazing!!!"

"Choosing Barre & Soul’s Yoga Teacher Training is the best decision I've ever made for my personal growth. The program is a challenging and supportive environment, and the highly knowledgeable teachers are varied in personality and style, which supports learning and self-discovery on a number of levels.

High regard for alignment and safety is the cornerstone of their program. Being exposed to a wide spectrum of yoga teachings and interest areas during the Sunday workshops adds a fun element to the program’s weekly lessons. I highly recommend the Barre & Soul program!"
