"The teachers at the Lotus gifted me their full wisdom and shared their hearts. It wasn't long for me to feel like family at the Lotus.The teacher raining program provided me with a such a deep connection with myself. Through the yoga practice, I've developed a greater connection with the Divine, a connection I never thought possible. I also felt like I was allowed to explore, create and practice how I felt was best for me, my spirit and my body. The training introduced me to new parts of inner myself and allowed my asana practice to strengthen, deepen and grow. It was a transformative experience that continues to evolve as I continue to practice and teach. The most valuable thing I've learned was how to speak from the heart. Not only do I continue to develop a heart language when I teach but it has also helped me in my every day life. The Lotus yoga sequence is amazing and just makes sense. I mainly teach at wellness centers and fitness gyms but I teach the Lotus flow everywhere I go. It's easy to adapt and simply looks and feels beautiful. The Lotus teacher training program is one of the best gifts I've received. I am grateful for the experience and humbled by it."-- Eric Subido
"Yoga school for me was the perfect stay close to home Yoga Teacher Training/Retreat/Journey that I was looking for. I chose LL because it was very important for me to be amongst a community where I felt energized and inspired. A space to devote myself, with the intention for transformation and growth. There is nothing like learning the yogic philosophy with extraordinary people while practicing the magic behind the Lotus Flow sequencing. I am grateful to know how to teach Lotus Flow." -- Kristina Welzien
"I came all the way from Switzerland for Summer School 2011 and it was one of my most intensive experiences ever. After San Francisco I went to Buenos Aires to start teaching right away. I discovered, people liked the flow and joy I learned at Laughing Lotus. Now I'm back in San Francisco and this Yoga School and these great people are definitely one of thereasons I came back. Many thanks to Jasmine & Keith and all the other great teachers for this very inspiring time of learning." -- Jana Buschel
"The Laughing Lotus Summer School Intensive Program was a very special experience for me. It allowed me to deepen my knowledge and practice of yoga, and provided a path in self-discovery. However, best of all, I was able to cultivate new friends & enduring inspiration from all the great teachers and teachings! Be ready to work hard though, the 3 week format is a powerful experience of learning, practicing & teaching all day, definitely an intensive, not a retreat... but worth every bit of it!"
"I was so happy to finally be able to do the Laughing Lotus Teacher Training with the 3-wk intensive format! Yoga School is a place to heal, get to know
yourself, to see your truth, listen & free yourself. It taught me that although we all came from different walks, traditions and look different we are all humans learning, living surviving, day by day, learning the lessons from obstacles that come on our path and how to live life through the great universal wisdom and Yoga teachings and practices. It taught me the elements earth, wind, fire, air, the universe that Every cultural can relate too that and the medicine in the movement and mantras that takes all the negativity out. Now I have tools to live by and teach children and adults in my community to heal."

"Summer intensive yoga teacher training will be an unforgettable experience for me. I learned to be really present at the moment and engage everything I do with full appreciation and devotion. I am amazed by how well the course was designed, We started by working on the first chakra, the root, and made our way up to the crown chakra within these 3 weeks. Connecting everything with spiritual thoughts we shared, opening ourselves to one another and removing the wall, the blockage, the ego. Mythology, literature, singing, dancing, discussing, celebrating and breathing was our common ground. Fears came up and we let them go. Tears came up and we washed ourselves in them. Laughing Lotus taught me to handle the mind, search for my true self by keeping this sacred practice of Yoga. As I am now a graduate for almost a year and I really enjoy teaching yoga, I see it as a gift and not a job or a chores, and so is the rest of the things I do in life." -- Bonnie Nahmias
"When I first heard of the Summer Intensive, I thought, how can you learn something so deep and comprehensive in only 3 weeks?! I signed up despite my concern and what a good decision that was! The intensive was the cosmic-kick-in-the-butt that I needed! In three weeks we learned so much, transformed and transcended. The teachings of yoga, the myths and the ancient scriptures really came to life and opened our minds, bodies and souls. We were all so inspired, we left our fears and doubts behind and blossomed into Lotuses! Jasmine & Keith were so generous, knowledgeable and purely wonderful! It truly was an amazing experience. Now, not even a year later, I teach yoga with confidence and great respect and am so grateful to have something so fantastic to give to the people around me!" -- Inbal Meron
