"Experiencing the altr Yin Yoga training weekend was everything I could have hoped for and so much more. Leah and Megan created a space where I was able to share, learn and grow both as an instructor and as a person. They were both extremely knowledgeable, passionate and really took the time to get to know all of us. I initially went into this weekend with the intention of being able to teach spin & yin combo classes at Hotshop, and I walked out with a level of knowledge I will take with me to each part of my life. From theory, principles & history to knowledge of poses and creating sequences, I have the confidence to practice at home and to teach others. This workshop gave me a whole new level of appreciation for Yin Yoga, and I can’t wait to discover and learn more as I practice. Thank you altr!"



"I don’t usually write reviews online but this is an exception. I couldn’t help but share the incredible experience I had when I took 200hr Yoga Teacher Training offered by Altr. I took the course Spring 2020 during the pandemic where all classes were offered online. At first, I didn’t know what to expect and what the quality of the course will be given it was moved 100% online. I am SO glad that I signed up for the course. I had the pleasure of learning so much from the incredible teachers Lauren Cowley and Leah Graw. The quality of the material was excellent and Lauren & Leah consistently went above and beyond to make this experience exceptional. Teachers were extremely knowledgeable and they truly cared about developing and mentoring their students. Meg Merriam was the Lead Trainer and she has made the online experience very smooth and user friendly. The atmosphere was nurturing, respectful and very encouraging. When I signed up for this course my goal was to deepen my knowledge, but Leah and Lauren helped me uncover the teaching potential that I never thought I had! All students in the class were absolutely amazing, supportive and such beautiful souls. If I had to do this all over again I would sign up with Altr in a heartbeat. It is definitely worth the investment and you will get nothing less than excellent quality! I finished the course last week and have already started teaching family and friends which I am enjoying a lot. I have Altr to thank for this! Big THANK YOU to Altr YTT for this wonderful experience!


"Teacher training was one of the most powerful, and life changing experiences I have ever done...  Whether you want to improve your yoga practice, develop teaching skills, bring balance back to your life, or just make new friends, this training has it all!   

Rachel and Megan were outstanding teachers and brought just the right balance to the training... The training has strength/compassion, power/ease and wisdom/learning.  I learned so much about my practice, my self and my community.  

Since the training my practice has significantly improved, I feel more at peace and energized in my life and I am even auditioning to teach which was something I never thought I would do!  I am so grateful for the experience I had!  

Namaste yogis!"


"I signed up for the altr YTT program to learn how to teach yoga, but it ended up absolutely changing my life. Our incredible trainers opened my eyes to what yoga really is and how I can implement yoga into my everyday life outside of my mat. It has gotten me to fall in love with my practice more than I thought I could, and inspired me to become a better teacher, yogi, and human. The connections I made throughout the training has given me genuine friendships and a community that is full of love and support. I am so grateful for my new yoga family and HotShop for becoming my second home!”



"Not to be dramatic or anything, but altr yoga changed my life. I was not sure what to expect going into my 200hr YTT, but I was welcomed like an old friend coming home! This team is supportive, kind, informative, and they will be your teachers for life. They help each student grow into themselves and foster community in a way I had not experienced before. If you have ever considered becoming a Yoga Teacher, please consider altr yoga - you will NOT regret it!"
