Here’s why our students love and trust our programs:  

"I considered many different programs when seeking out my yoga therapy certification. My first impression of Inner Peace was that they were organized and professional, which turned out to be very true! I felt the topics of education addressed the most common conditions for which people seek out therapeutic yoga--heart disease, addiction, chronic pain, etc. The teachers are the absolute best in each of their areas of expertise. Throughout the entire training and beyond, I felt extremely supported by the Inner Peace staff. They were quick to help with any of our needs during the immersion, and provided essential guidance after the program ended to assist everyone with IAYT certification. I cannot speak highly enough about this school. I recommend Inner Peace to all of my yoga colleagues seeking to be yoga therapists because I know they will not be disappointed! - Michelle Fletcher, Asheville NC

"I'm so happy I chose to study with Inner Peace. Their certification program is well-rounded and comprehensive, preparing me to work with numerous populations and medical conditions. The teachings impacted the way I interact with my students as well as myself; it was truly life-changing!" - Whitney Pasch, Chicago IL
