Tranquil Space’s ATT program constantly inspired and challenged me. I left each intensive weekend excited to teach the next day, full of fresh perspectives, tools, and knowledge. The wide range of teachers, my supportive peers, and the diverse topics of study fulfilled exactly what I was craving more of in my quest to continue this path of learning so that I may be a more well-rounded teacher. I felt I owed that to the students who attend my classes, and to myself. I gained confidence and have been able to tap in deeper to my authentic voice and teaching style. I liked that the program includes different points of view, so that, ultimately, it is up to us as teachers (and students!) to decide what resonates within and teach from that place. I am deeply grateful to all of my teachers and peers for making this experience so fulfilling. — Alice, 2012 ATT graduate

The TS ATT program was an incredible experience for me – truly life changing, and for the better! Thank you 🙂 — Becky Pfordresher, ATT graduate

I truly appreciated the diversity of expert teachers, the focus on non-asana areas of yoga in addition to the asana deep-dive. I REALLY appreciated the flexibility of the program to take over two years, which allowed me to actually complete a 500 hour offering. Rave reviews. — Wendy Maines, ATT graduate

Integrative Work

Throughout the year there will be special assignments to integrate the work of the learning. These assignments will include several writing projects, regular practice, observed teaching, and culminate in a yoga thesis. The yoga thesis is an opportunity to deeply research, write-about and express your passion for a topic near to your heart. All of this special work is an opportunity to integrate the learnings and a chance for feedback and support from your teachers.
