Praise for Devi's Yoga Trainings
Reviews from Devi's Yoga Alliance profile:
"I came into this training having read all major yin yoga publications and views many of the relevant videos by a variety of yin yoga experts.... I traveled almost 300 miles to attend the course and I am really glad I did. Although I am an experienced yin yoga teacher, I learned several new things including Devi's functional approach, meridian theory, and assisted yin. I would highly recommend to all yin yoga teachers and serious practitioners."

"Devi's knowledge of the subject area and her ability to communicate and teach in an effective, clearly organized and accessible manner make this program exceptional. Every hour of instruction and practice was valuable and well-planned. I am so grateful that I gave myself the gift of participating in Devi's classic yin yoga training. I came away from the training feeling inspired and refreshed. What I learned continues to echo through my body, mind and spirit, influencing my personal practice, my teaching, and my outlook on life. I would do the program again in a heartbeat!"

"Ms. Daly understands well the complexities of teaching yoga, in terms of the great variety of expectations and needs of students doing studio yoga, and in terms of current developments in yoga itself. Besides offering high quality face-to-face instruction, Ms Daly has followed up with useful materials for her students to continue working on as they develop their practice using Yin Yoga in their teaching, and in their own practice. This course satisfied the hopes I had when I signed up for it. The history of Yin yoga, how it relates to traditional hatha practices and theory, principles governing Yin yoga, and excellent on-site practice were provided."

"Devi excels at teaching all aspects of Yin Yoga. She is very competent teaching Anatomy and Physiology in a way that is specific to a Yin practice. She is highly organized with a strict schedule she adhere's to, and I really appreciate that in a workshop. Honestly, I met so many motivated Yoga Teachers from all over California and had FUN! The kind of fun that sticks with you long after the event. I would not hesitate to attend again. My classes are getting bigger with offering Yin Yoga, and the demand for privates has increased since my training. My training with Devi certainly gave me more confidence offering a YIn Yoga practice. I learned how to design a balanced safe class with offerings of modification I fell comfortable advising."

"I really enjoyed this training more than I thought I would. Debbie is a very open instructor, explains things clearly and is open to questions. I really enjoyed the structure of the class with a combination of slides, activity and demonstration. It was great weekend and I would recommend it to others!"

"Devi is an excellent teacher, she keeps the class moving at a good pace, kept everyone on task and was incredibly organized. Devi provided us with a wealth of knowledge, expertise and good teacher training skills that we could take with us into our own classrooms and put into action. She shared her wisdom and knowledge with the class and gave us the space to learn new skills. Prior to taking this course I lacked substantial training to teach and understand how to effectively teach a yin class. After completing my training with her I felt much more mentally prepared to teach a complete yin class at the gym where I am employed to teach yoga five days a week. I felt so refreshed as a yoga instructor after our three day training, and I continue to unwrap all the elements that I learned not only of yin yoga but on being a yoga teacher and I hope to share this with my students."

"This was hands down my favorite yoga teacher training I have taken thus far. Even if you don’t teach, this week is transformative."
- Nicole Hall, RYT, Napa, CA
"Devi's yin yoga course was fabulous. She discussed the physical and energetic bodies and described everything in an easy to digest manner. She was funny, humble and very knowledgeable in her course content and teaching ability. I highly recommend this course !
