“The best part about Barefoot YTT is how much the trainers are willing to support and help you grow. I am dyslexic and so grateful that I was able to take the exam by speaking the answers, and not have to sweat about writing them. I was able to devote my time to learning yoga, and what it takes to be a good teacher and not be disadvantaged by being my dyslexic self. It was freeing to learn my way.”
Sarah Kemp, Barefoot YTT graduate.
“Barefoot provided excellent YTT training. All trainers/teachers were experts in their field such as anatomy, asana, history and philosophy, Ayurveda, techniques and business. Their support and belief in all trainees was immense. I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge.” Wendy Salmon, Barefoot YTT graduate.
