Graduate Review - Micaela June 2020

This teacher training is incredible. So packed with information, teaching plans, pose breakdowns, practicums and jam packed with everything you will need to feel confident as a new teacher to start as soon as we graduate. Claire is an incredible instructor. This is an investment you will not regret! It is by far the best Hatha training I have seen on the market.

Graduate Review - Trish, August 2020

Ambassador Yoga Teacher Training with Claire Matthews was incredibly inspiring experiential learning! I learned so much about breathing, asanas, mindful movement, body awareness, meditation and relaxation. I also learned yogic principles and reflections strategies and enlightenment that have changed my life. This curriculum stimulated my mind and body and spirit every day of my training and beyond! I am looking forward to taking more yoga training in the future.

Thank you to Claire and Lisa who have given me the confidence to share the wisdom and teachings of yoga. The Ambassador Yoga 200hr program balances yogic philosophy with practical teachings and provides a welcoming, inclusive environment where trainees can discuss, inquire, and practice together. Teacher trainees graduate with the knowledge and skills needed to teach yoga, inspiration to continue exploring the practice, self -reflection and growth, and lifelong friendships. Thank you!

Yog-ahhh! The magic of yoga lies in the connection between the body, the spirit and the mind. Deepen your understanding of this connection through a comprehensive look at our internal energetic system, the Chakras!  Becoming aware of the association between yogic anatomy and physical anatomy, you’ll recognize unbalanced emotional, physical and intellectual states and acquire tools that help restore balance. You’ll start teaching the classical postures in gentle and restorative ways with practical modifications that make them accessible to all your students. You’ll also be able to teach others how to find calm though chanting, meditation, and yoga nidra.

Graduate Review - Sarah, November 2015

My favorite part of the training was the study and dissection of the Bhagavad Gita and connecting its themes to modern life. Claire offers herself wholly to her students, sharing her personal journey as it relates to the subjects at hand. She speaks confidently about yogic philosophy and physical anatomy in language that is entirely understandable to students. As well as being an excellent speaker, Claire is an incredible listener. Each student is encouraged to share their thoughts and have their voice heard. One cannot deny that Claire is fully invested in developing and offering teacher training to utmost of her ability. All of this is seen in the community that has been, and continues to be, created in her studio amongst students and teachers alike.
