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.
