My gratitude has compelled me to write a sincere thank you! Having recently graduated from the yoga teacher program in June, your e-mails and resources have been invaluable to me. I am in the midst of working on my website through register.com and I am loving how simple and easy it is. The e-newsletter is inspiring, the forum SO very helpful. I start teaching in two weeks and all the support and resources have been invaluable. I also signed up for the liability insurance, which was fast and easy. I think its true many of us yogis just want to get out there and teach— thank you for all the hard work you do to help make that a reality!
