"I was tired of being the only black person or person of color showing up to various yoga classes in the Philadelphia Region - let alone teach a class. So much so, that I decided to finally complete my 200 HR YTT (yoga teacher training). I chose Sanctuary because they made me feel at ease. Once I enrolled in Sanctuary's teacher training and empowerment program, I gained a solid understanding of how to intertwine breath with movement, as well as how to sequence and theme a class by interweaving feelings, thoughts, emotions, seasonal and astrological cues, yogic values and its roots - all to build the framework for each class I teach or am taught. We also broke down the architecture and anatomy of each pose in great detail. I’m still learning and wanted to learn more, which is why I wanted to complete the 500 HR here, as the chemistry was good. Great rapport. Teaching excellence." - Tina Scott-Wynder, student of Sanctuary Yoga & Mindfulness 500 HR Teacher Training 2018
