what students are saying

My yoga teacher training with evolation was absolutely incredible. I trained with an amazing group of people and the synergy of everyone together studying, teaching, practicing yoga created this really beautiful vibe that inspired growth and self- exploration/ The training seemed expensive to me at first but during and after training I recognized what an amazing deal it was – I feel I received so much more than I paid for!

It prepared me to become not just a great yoga instructor, but also a more awake, alive, aware person. It’s been a year since training and I am happier, more serene, and more enthusiastic about life than ever. All the changes within me that have brought about this joy began during training..

Training with evolation was a transformative experience for me – I underwent this profound shift in the way I view myself, the world, living, yoga, everything. No aspect of my experience has been the same since!

If you feel called to yoga teacher training, I highly recommend evolation. I cannot sing their praises enough!!!! I cannot imagine a yoga teacher training experience more valuable. It’s hard to describe in words how significant the experience was to me and it feels strange to even try. Just give them a call and you’ll understand. :)


I was fortunate enough to be able to take the extended Teacher Training offered by Evolation. I was unable to take 4 weeks off of my full time job for the immersion program (though I wish I could have!), so the extended training option was the only way I would be able to become a teacher. This format presented its own challenges for me such as more effort to feel a part of the group and more emphasis on setting personal deadlines to complete parts of the training.

I struggled with both, but in the end was able to learn so much from those unique challenges. To me, the most valuable parts of the training were practice teaching sessions and yoga philosophy lectures. Practice teaching was uncomfortable, nerve racking, and ultimately exceptionally rewarding. It was an excellent way to move out of my comfort zone and to prepare for “real life” teaching situations. Yoga lectures opened my eyes to the history and philosophies of yoga and suddenly my practice, my desire to teach, and the inherent ideas I had been having since beginning to practice all clicked. It was clear through this deeper learning that I was right where I was supposed to be. Every aspect of training provided so much valuable information for an aspiring teacher, those were just my highlights. As I teach now, I continue to learn with each class. I often reference my training notes and readings to keep my teaching fresh and on track. I look forward to attending future trainings when I can to continue my education and yoga experiences!


I completed my 200-hr training in Tampa in 2013 and it was an awesome, life-changing experience. Evolation’s training meets the definition of inclusive and comprehensive.- Teachers don’t just lecture they include students in the training sessions. Furthermore, posture mechanics and anatomy lessons are led by some of the most experienced hot yoga practitioners.

Plus, the philosophy and meditation sessions inspire and provide insight to life’s big questions by opening your mind and exposing you to new ideas, all without offending or excluding religious beliefs. In short, they know their stuff and love teaching others about this thing we call yoga. Students become uplifted and form a tight bond and because the groups are so small you will become an instant family and learn more about your self than you ever thought possible. I highly suggest this training even to those who don’t want to teach.

I am a certified yoga instructor!!! This has been one of the most incredible journeys of my life and I thank everyone who has been a part of it in any way. It's a dream come true!!– Kahley Cuff, Santa Barbara 2013

I left the Evolation Training confident in my teaching. I learned so much, not only about the 90 minute hot yoga class, and what words you have to say, but also anatomy, philosophy, meditation, and the most I learned about was myself – Hadley Carr, Costa Rica 2014

I was very impressed with Evolation Hot Yoga as the class size was small and intimate. The Teachers were very much hands on and stayed true to the teachings of yoga. Not just asana's, pranayama and anatomy but stayed true to the teachings of yoga with spirituality of the Yoga Sutra's and the Bhagavad Gita.– Dick Winn, Santa Barbara 2013
