Reviews and Testimonials

Have you heard?

With 30 years experience training and certifying teachers, we have a history of success here at The American Yoga Academy. And our students think so, too!

We’ve packaged all our expertise and wisdom (did we mention Claire spent years traveling and teaching with Deepak Chopra?) into bite-sized, understandable chunks that are easy to access and navigate anytime, anywhere. 

But don’t take it from us, read what our students and graduates have to say.

Students and Graduates Say:

Claire’s wisdom and nurturing style inspired me. She is so inspirational and fun to learn from. Her warmth and experience make her a wonderful teacher. She is full of love and light and makes the world a better place. ~Karin K., Boston, MA, USA

I really love the way The American Yoga Academy encourages us to make both our yoga practice and our yoga teaching a unique expression of ourselves– not “one way fits all.” ~Carly Y., Colts Neck, NJ, USA 

It is so refreshing that Claire sees yoga from so many different perspectives while she teaches, rather than only speaking about what works for her. She also conveys all the information in a positive light. Paying attention to the benefits and good feelings, rather than the ‘lack of’ makes all the difference…where attention goes, energy flows! ~Liv L., Fairfield, CT, USA

Claire is a marvelous instructor and is so passionate that it is contagious.  The lectures have been informative and I feel like this decision to become a yoga teacher has saved my life in many ways. ~ Vernetta W., Chicago, IL, USA

The work on asanas, benefits, and alignment is all there, the guidance on how to be an outstanding instructor and a good yogi is what I treasured. The attention to detail and feedback are incredible. ~Ginny D., Ontario, Canada

I have been thinking about this course. It has most certainly been more fulfilling than I had imagined! I feel more peace than any other time in my life and it is due to what I am learning in this course and applying to my life as a whole. ~Jessica P., Joseph, OR, USA
I am so happy and so thankful to have done my 200 hours with The American Yoga Academy. I will continue to educate myself and make my Yoga Journey more and more beautiful while also inspiring others. Thank you for all the support! ~Hannah M., Weehawken, NJ, USA

I am so glad that I made this decision to start my yoga teacher training journey with you. After just the first module I realized that yoga is for everyone. It’s joy and feeling good, being yourself, learning, improving without any judgment. ~Basak S., Franklin, TN, USA

I can actually feel the levity in my aura. I am learning and embracing this so much. This is exactly what I need in my life! ~Christine M., Toms River, NJ, USA  

I just got off the phone with Claire covering my practical evaluation and I wanted to reach out and thank you all so much for making this possible. You’ve created a really beautiful online space and I just appreciate every bit of it. I’m so lucky I found you. ~Olivia L., Connecticut, USA
