HEY Testimonials

Here is what our graduates are saying about the Healing Emphasis Yoga Therapy* Teacher Training program.

The HEY yoga therapy program is outstanding and amazing! I would like to thank you and Jeff for your kind words and also for your support and encouragement throughout the entire HEY training…  I believe that the two of you are amazing master teachers and I am honored that I had the opportunity to work with both of you…  I knew after attending my first weekend workshop that I needed more of this training. I liked that the 300 hour program is presented in weekend workshops, which makes scheduling and paying for the program easier. – B.T.

(T)his well-rounded program… is invaluable in guiding clients to see themselves in the highest light… The environment in class, the materials presented, the knowledge of the instructors, and the completeness of the topics discussed is exceptional.  It is a journey worth taking.  HEY Therapy Training is a top notch program that brings forth the philosophy that health is not only absence of disease, rather health is a vibration of positive energy that is emitted in all aspects of your life. – T.T.

When I was thinking about doing a MASTER LEVEL Program I looked everywhere and was SO THRILLED to find HEY. As a 200 hour graduate of IVY, I KNEW I would receive AMAZING, TOP NOTCH training from the Staff (besides the studio environment is not at all intimidating!). Jeff told me this would be transformational –  I had NO idea how right he was or what that meant! HEY training came at a time in my life that taught me to open up to the possibilities of change and to move through the discomforts of my life (and my thinking). It educated, guided and supported me to a new level of knowing myself. I made some life changing decisions because of it — and survived! LOL. This training helped me to become a better version of myself, so I can help my clients to do the same… It was a perfect follow up. NO DOUBT,  was A LOT of HARD work.. but worth every tear (and dollar) I spent. I am so grateful for HEY. I’m honored and blessed to be a graduate of the program. – R.Z.

The HEY Program is the most powerful and transformational training program I have ever experienced. The training you receive is top notch, and fully prepares you to be a practicing yoga therapist. That said, it is a very personal journey as well that will transform and heal you from the inside out on every level – physical, mental, emotional, energetic, and spiritual. I feel so incredibly blessed to have received this training. Most importably, my clients feel safe and that they are in capable hands with “projects” that are so sensitive and deeply personal. THANK YOU!  -D.R.

This program is amazing, I love that everything we are taught we experience ourselves first. When I started the program the teachers said it will change your life. I didn’t believe them at first. Not only did it change my life, it saved it, I really don’t know what I would have done if I didn’t have the program in my life. There is so much self reflection and healing therapy work that you really understand the power of what you are being taught and how you can pass that on to others! I’m more confident, positive, and powerful in the way I lead my life and my classes and clients, I highly recommend this program and the wonderful teachers! – A.F.

I enjoyed every minute of the HEY teacher training program.  There was so much useful information that I will be able to use in my instruction, practice, and personal life – on and off the mat. – C.D.

This program provides so much practical, hands-on knowledge of how to assist our students. Right from the beginning, I felt more confident in leading a group class and answering questions from individuals.  I have grown personally, as well as a teacher in so many ways that I feel like I came out the other end completely changed! – C.L.

Your program is so abundant in information, experience, and quality, that I feel I have a wealth of new-to-me tips, insights, approaches, etc. to draw upon and share with my students. Being in HEY has reignited my love of teaching, and what you provide is feeding me in such a way that I am now able to feed others more along the lines of how I’ve always wanted to. – E.B.

This is a unique training about your own capacity for personal transformation as well as how to teach yoga to others as a path for personal growth and acceptance. HEY TT is deeply exploratory with time, tools and readings provided to take your sensitivity and skills to more subtle levels. You will be able to create safety and inspire courage to simply open and try, to be in our bodies even when they are challenged. It will help you to reach those in psychic or physical distress and pain and do no harm. These healing modalities allow everybody to experience the richness of the eight fold path. – A.J. (PhD, M.D.)

This program brings a wonderful world of healing on all levels – physically, emotionally, mentally. We explore from the wide universal level down to the smallest level of quarks and thoughts – all pointing to the beautiful mind/body relationship. The teachers lead with passion, skill and dedication. – W.J.

This program is highly recommended for those who want to transform their lives from the inside out. Jeff and Donna compassionately lead and guide us through an evolutionary approach to healing in which we peel away the habitual holding patterns and discover the deeper Truths of our Highest Nature. It is a journey of depth and self discovery. – C.R.

The program asks for so much (time, energy, heart…), and what it gives makes it absolutely worth it. Not only did this program create ways for me to grow as a teacher, it also helped me grow as a person. – A.M.

The HEY teacher training was a very comprehensive program that exceeded my expectations. The program provided an in-depth study of various techniques not only in terms of healing the physical body but also on a mental and spiritual level requiring significant self-study and introspection. – L.T.

This program is far beyond amazing. Learning so much about myself has made me realize that I am perfect as I am. I have brought a new confidence to my teaching along with a wide variety of knowledge that was provided in the program. I highly recommend the HEY program as it is truly transformational on so many levels. – Anon

The Healing Emphasis Yoga Therapy has been enlightening and I love the focus on healing from the inside out through the many yogic tools (breath, meditation, consciousness, physical practice, and alignment) to challenge habits and ailments.  The teachers are masters in their knowledge of the healing process. I would highly recommend this program.
