"I loved the experience and signed up for the 300 hour program even before I finished. Aside from just being able to focus on yoga for 8 hours a day, a week at a time, with incredible instructors, I enjoyed working with my classmates and watching us all grow as yoga practitioners and instructors.” - Jeff Swanson

“ I would highly recommend the The Mazé Method 200 hour teacher training because it’s not just about learning to teach yoga poses. It’s learning about yourself. It’s about individual growth. That’s why I chose to study with The Mazé Method. Through this training I’ve become much more observant and gained awareness and understanding of what the poses do for our bodies. I joined the program to deepen my knowledge, but it has also been about evolvement in my own being. It’s been scary, exciting, very emotional and wonderful for me.”—Laura Wang
