Christa Clarke, Mexico
I love how yoga has helped me through thick and thin, my mat and breath are always there. I’ve had a personal yoga practice for over 11 years and a desire to become a teacher for many of those years. I became a structural integrator along the way and opened a new academy with my husband. In that process I fell in love with online teaching and learning. When I found Yoga Renew it felt like the perfect opportunity to take the dive and become a certified teacher. I loved that I could fit it into my schedule and do it from home. I learned a lot and am already offering classes. Thanks YogaRenew for turning a dream into reality!

Gulmira Delatorra, Minnesota
My name is Gulmira, recent Minnesota State University graduate in Mathematics and Statistics. I moved to the USA 4 years ago to pursue my education. Luckily, I not only completed my degree here but also met my loving and supporting husband, Benjamin. I am also a proud mother of 11-year old ambition sweetheart, Parvina who has been actively practicing gymnastics since she is 3. My beautiful family is a result of a hard work, perseverance and encouragement of the kindest people I met throughout my life. I can not wait to experience the blissful future ahead of us.
I started practicing yoga 2 years ago. Minnesota State University, Mankato offers yoga classes to its students as a path to well-being and I was interested because yoga was a completely new practice for me. It seemed easy but once I started my yogic path, I realized that yoga is not about “asanas” but had deep, multiple layers comprising all aspects of life. Nowadays, I work on improving my asanas, breath, meditation etc. every day to eventually be one in body-breath-mind to achieve complete joy of my life.
Considering how much yoga empowered me, it feels egoistic not to share this great feeling with the world. I am working on receiving my teacher training certification from YogaRenew Teacher Training so that I can share my knowledge of this ancient practice with people. Yoga is like an unlimited gift of love, compassion and personal peace.
There is no need to mention the abundance of yoga teacher training programs, however during my search YogaRenew Teacher Training had a lot of positive reviews. The beauty of the program is its convenience and affordability. It is an online program that offers variety of quality material for not only those who would like to teach yoga but also deepen their personal connection to the practice.
After completing the program, I plan to share more of my experience as I walk along my yogic path towards a blissful existence.

Joshua Dipietro, Rhode Island
My name is Joshua DiPietro. I’m entering my first year of graduate school this September in hopes to become a professor to continually learn and help others learn for the rest of my life. I grew an interest in Yoga at the same time I started surfing. Yoga is a part of surf culture which made me curious about its teachings. I went to a studio near me and felt differences in my mood and grew cravings to attending class as it brought me mental clarity and physical comfort. For instance, I grind my teeth at night and I noticed that had stopped. This upcoming year I want to teach classes for free to help spread Yoga’s positive effects and help others as Yoga has helped me. I chose YogaRenew because I loved the concept of an online class along with the helpful videos and lifetime access. Lifetime access is crucial for development in my opinion because I can go back to any instructional video, as many times as I want and take the tests/quizzes over and over again. Online convenience is amazing because I can learn around my own schedule as opposed to cramming in 10 hour days for several weekends participating in a Yoga training class. I look forward to completing this course to help me persevere through graduate school and life’s hardships.
Rebecca Butler, Canberry Australia
My name is Rebecca Butler from Australia. My interest in yoga was sparked by a need to start doing more stretching and mobility exercises. As a group fitness instructor and trainer doing a lot of heavy weight training I was starting to really feel my body tightening up.
Priscilla Bell, San Diego CA
I started my yoga journey about 4 years ago when I was trying to find some much needed relief for the anxiety that was overwhelming me. Shortly before I started practicing yoga, my husband, a Police Officer at the time, was shot multiple times by a suspect while on duty. As you can imagine, that was a traumatic experience for our entire family.
It was a long road to recovery and I'm still working on getting better every day. My faith has sustained me spiritually, and yoga has helped my physically, and emotionally.
Kashan Passmore, Auckland New Zealand
House wife and mother, to two darling children, husband and Sophia the bengal who thinks she is a dog or human ( we still cannot figure out which of the two?!) I look forward to nothing more than pizza and movie nights at home with my family fridays. I also believe I was an Italian in my past life. Hence I cried when I left Florence during my OE when i was younger. MY journey to come to love Yoga started with a mixed class at my local Les Mills Gym that is a mixture of Tai chi for Warm up, Yoga and Pilates for the core content followed by Savasana with my lovely Teacher June. Yoga found me through my personal “journey within” a few years ago where i was determined to heal myself after a diagnosis of an Autoimmune disease “Hashimotos”. I am here today to say that I am clear of the “DIS - EASE” AND I fell in love with YOGA during the process of my recovery. For these reasons, I wanted to learn more about my practice that will allow me to go deeper within understanding the foundations and principles of my practice and really grow a relationship with my breath. I am early into my studies but can say that the video tutorials are so VERY CLEAR and inviting. I Choose to study online with YOGARENEW because i have small children and it could fit in with my lifestyle, i read a lot of the testimonials provided finding them very authentic, which helped with my decision to study with Yogarenew.
Kelly Andrews, Louisville, KY
My name is Kelly Andrews and for most of my professional life, I have been a Licensed Esthetician and a Massage practitioner. I recently received my certification in Health Coaching and am now an Integrative Health Coach. I am a single Mom of a wonderfully beautiful autistic son.
My passion for yoga began when I was a child. My Aunt Carolyn gave me a childrens yoga book and we use to do yoga together. We watched Lilas Folan on PBS. That is how it started for me. I eventually grew with my practice finding other types of yoga throughout the years. I had endless amounts of videos and books. I started going to classes while living in Bloomington, Indiana in the 90’s and even took Yoga 101 at Indiana University. Eventually, I ended up in Louisville KY and got into the Bikram movement and Vinyasa styles of yoga.
I have always wanted to teach. I have decades of experience. But, it’s rather difficult for me to take the time away to do a traditional training. That is when I found Yoga Renew. Being able to study online is fabulous and the cost was significantly lower. I feel I will be prepared to teach when I am finished.
Sarah Crowder, USA
I started yoga to help with my physical limitations ( fibromyalgia) and choose to become a teacher for the purpose of helping others with limitations be able to live fuller lives with less pain. Medicine only took away the pain and never helped my mobility. Through yoga I have not only been able to do more on my own then I ever thought but it has opened my mind mentally and emotionally to things I would have never thought possible.

How: I’d love to share the gift of yoga to others by finishing this program and becoming a yoga
instructor. I’d love to teach a class. I chose yoga renew for training was because I was researching the best online training to

What I like about the online program is that you can do it at your own pace and on
your own time.
