Yoga and the Healing Sciences
A 200-Hour Teacher Training Program
at Loyola Marymount University


Here's what some of last year's students had to say about our LMU TT program...

"I knew the program would be special, but I didn't expect it to be as extraordinarily special as it was – words can't describe it. My Yoga practice has become deeper and more expansive."
– Lisa Durow, Occupational Therapist

"I grew tremendously over the ten weeks of the LMU teacher training. I strongly believe in the power of intention and when I received the flyer about this class in the mail I knew it was the right one. I had been considering taking a Yoga teacher training for four years! My life ten weeks ago was filled with anxiety and doubts and fears. This class has opened not only my eyes to the possibilities of life, but my heart as well. It has truly been a remarkable experience that I wish the entire world could share. The world would be a different place!"
– Barbara Treves, Interior Designer and Green Building Consultant

"I wanted to gain more awareness of Yoga as a philosophy and lifestyle and the LMU Yoga and the Healing Sciences program exceeded my expectations. It encouraged me to dive deeper and also gave me the space and support to learn about myself and grow. It came into my life right at a time of great change and challenge…and it has truly changed my life. I know it will have lasting effects on my day-to-day experience and my path. I am more open to love than I've ever been. I've become so much more aware of how beautiful everyone around me is. I couldn't ask for more! I am so grateful for this wonderful opportunity."
– Jessica Fishburn, Stanford Graduate School Student and Lululemon Employee

"This program helped me get back to what I initially loved about Yoga."
– Alexis Earkman, Social Worker

"The program exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend it. I enjoyed the variety of speakers and my classmates were great, too. I would encourage all of my friends and students interested in expanding their knowledge of Yoga to take this course. It is a catalyst to broaden their knowledge and scope of teaching."
– Nicolle Lincir, Bikram Yoga Studio Owner

"I loved the LMU TT program! The exposure to all our marvelous visiting masters was invaluable. It exceeded my expectations in terms of depth and breadth of material. I thought that teaching Yoga to others might be something that is beyond my reach mainly because of doubting that I could inspire people – since inspiration was something that I was not sure I would be able to transmit. Now I believe that I can get to that place and I feel in my heart that it is within my scope and my grasp to touch people in this way."
– Clea Jones, Psychologist

"My heart and mind have opened up to so many new experiences and pieces of knowledge. My spirituality has deepened. I feel that my faith has been reconfirmed. I'm learning more and more to accept myself and to believe in the love that I have inside and share it with the world. I have LOVED the experiences that both Terra and Eden have shared with us. They have been impactful beyond words."
– Monique DeLoach, Middle School Teacher

"I am so glad that the LMU program wasn't all asana because I feel like it went deeper due to the way things were presented. The end result was so much more than I could have asked for. I'm so happy that I had this experience."
– Anahi Tellez, College Student

"The teacher training program is great at building a strong foundation. My Yoga practice is a lot more focused and spiritual now because of all that I learned. My expectations were to have all the tools to be a great teachers and now I do have them because of LMU, Terra and Eden. Thank You."
– Christian Castano, Musician

"This course has helped me grow in many different areas of my life. I now see the importance of staying on the path of my passion and that it's more than just taking asana classes. Teach what you know. Be an example. Tune into your center and let your inner guide lead you."
– Dorinne Caine, HBO Executive

"The program was perfect. It definitely opened me up to new insightful and magical secrets. I loved every moment of it."
– Karen Liu, Chiropractic/Acupuncture School Student

"I had come to this program with no expectations. However, I was pleasantly surprised of how well all subject areas were covered and new areas of interest were developed for me. My understanding of Yoga and it's real purpose has deepened. Yoga is not only about asanas anymore. It's a lifestyle that is practiced regardless of what physical shape you are in! The end of this course is just the beginning of my studies."
– Robert Ghodooshim, Apparel Industry Business Owner

"I had been looking for a 200-hour Yoga program on weekends for several years. I found the ad in LA Yoga Magazine on the ground outside the YMCA in Newport Beach. Right time AND being taught by instructors who respect safety and therapy – right up my alley. The part where there were 19 guest instructors told me this was not a dictatorship in Yoga. The philosophy, music legends and asanas were so enriching. I had the fitness fear of going into weekend trainings and suffering body burnout. Not the case. Every subject left me wanting more information. Every scholar brought in had so much outstanding background and experience. They were wizards in their fields. Wonderful. Over the top. The richness of the information presented was truly a gift."
– Karen Heersink, Fitness Professional

If someone is considering taking a Yoga teacher training program, what would you tell them about your experiences in our LMU TT?

"Terra and Eden have put together an amazing program that will ultimately impact anyone's life who takes the program in such a wonderful way. You will get a good basic understanding of anatomy, learn a set of postures to teach that make sense and meet an amazing group of people. I really loved the program."
– Monique DeLoach, Middle School Teacher

"The LMU TT was an incredible introduction to the whole of Yoga. It was the most transformational experience I've ever been a part of. The relationships I've made with my classmates/kula and with myself are simply unbelievable. I would highly recommend it!"
– Jessica Fishburn, Stanford Graduate School Student and Lululemon Employee

"A comprehensive and complete program covering all the basic areas with exposure to different styles and their origins. The most important part is that it allows the student to choose their path based on their individual needs and growth."
– Robert Ghodooshim, Apparel Industry Business Owner

"It was AWESOME! The teachers are great. You leave every class motivated. If you want to change your life in a positive way, do it."
– Anahi Tellez, College Student

"It is an incredible experience. A family has been formed. You grow in ways you never expected to grow. The depth and breadth of knowledge was impressive. Well worth the tuition! It's a deal for what was given by the instructors and the guests! So much love was given and created by the students, guest teachers and instructors."
– Lisa Durow, Occupational Therapist

"I learned that Yoga is way more than asanas. Yoga is a philosophy and a way of life. This teacher training program taught me about life and how to live my life based on what's important to me. This program taught me how to be diligent, hard-working and honest to myself and others. It also taught me that I'm not alone and that other people are just as eccentric, emotional and weird as me!"
– Alexis Earkman, Social Worker

"It's da bomb!!"
– Barbara Treves, Interior Designer and Green Building Consultant

"Eden and Terra are lifelong practitioners of Yoga and spirituality and it comes through their teaching by being knowledgeable of many traditions and being humble and respectful."
– Dan Blanchard, Graphic Designer and Computer Expert

"I believe this course has been the best educational thing I could have taken to expand my knowledge base."
– Cheri Dunbar-Legget, NASA physicist

"Excellent teachers. Serious depth. Authentic. Well rounded education. Great for teachers and self improvement."
– Zuade Kaufman, Founder of Truth Dig

"It's the best. I love all the different interests and input of the 20 plus teachers. It helps us make our own choices. When there is a single teacher, you get only one view. Everyone needs the freedom to find their own path. The LMU program allows that. It also makes you smart in a Yoga crowd."
– Karen Heersink, Fitness Professional

"Be ready to be vulnerable and get closer to God."
– Cynthia Rivas, Acupuncturist

"The LMU teacher training was awesome and one of the best educational experiences I have ever had. It was a bargain as a "schooling" experience and way better than law school."
– Marie Stein, Lawyer

"I would highly recommend this program. The teachers are fantastic and share a lot of their combined knowledge."
– Dorinne Caine, HBO Executive
