Testimonials

Home Yoga in Andover really does feel like “Home” in that I finally found a place that has blended all of my 20 years experience doing different types of yoga into the perfect practice. It combines the principles of proper alignment with a flow that requires mindfulness and core strength. It is this strict attention to mindfulness that brings you deeper into your practice at Home Yoga. All of the teachers at Home Yoga inspire a sense of community and commitment that automatically moves you to keep reaching higher and deeper levels in your practice.

Taking Kristin’s TT is a gift to yourself and to your students. Kristin will nurture your role as teacher, and you will become more confident sharing yourself and your love of yoga with students. You will learn the art of skillful sequencing to help your students progress safely in their asana practice and leave your classes with a sense of clarity and balance. Kristin will encourage your study of the yoga sutras to deepen your own practice and help you impart the subtle aspects of yoga into your teaching.

Teacher training weekends are fun and thought provoking, thanks to Kristin’s passion and talent for clearly communicating and teaching yoga philosopy, anatomy, and sequencing. I am so glad I participated in HOME Yoga’s 300 Hour TT, and I am grateful to Kristin for enriching my practice and my teaching.

There is an Aristotle quote displayed at the studio and on the TT page that summarizes perfectly Kristin’s approach, and inspires me to do the same: “We are all what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”

What a truly wonderful program! Kristin’s Teacher Training at Home Yoga has greatly enriched my knowledge and experience of yoga which will serve me as both a teacher and a student.

Kristin created a supportive and rigorous environment that encouraged us to think deeply, participate actively, ask questions and be unafraid to share our experiences. As we covered the many important aspects of teaching – alignment, sequencing, philosophy, anatomy and assisting – we were immediately given opportunities to integrate the knowledge and apply it. Each training weekend was structured to encourage us to work hard (and we did!), yet we left feeling invigorated. It says so much about Kristin’s gift as a teacher that she is able to deliver a detailed, thoughtful training program, while simultaneously creating a supportive and close-knit community.

I will greatly miss our training weekends together, and am so grateful to have been part of this very special program.

HOME Yoga’s Teacher Training Program was an extremely rewarding and transformative experience. The curriculum was highly engaging and broken down in a way that made it digestible and accessible. We dove deeply into many concepts while building a foundation of safe and proper alignment and intelligent sequencing. Kristin’s instruction is truly unparalleled, and I am grateful I was able to train with her. The program allowed my own practice to blossom, which I believe will make me a more confident instructor. I feel prepared to safely and intelligently educate students in their practice and would highly recommend the training to all students and teachers alike.

I have inconsistently dabbled in Yoga for over 40 years. I wanted to become trained to be a Yoga teacher and I was fortunate enough to become a student of Kristin Olson at Andover Home Yoga. She is a patient, smart, knowledgeable, respectful, challenging, inspiring, human(e), kind, and thorough teacher. She gracefully and directly led students with 20+ years of strong practice, and those of us who were barely at novice level (me), with insights and instruction that educated us all. Her cues in our practice, and her instructions in class, felt like they were directed to inform and direct me personally. Her understanding of the Sutras is awakening, and her practice and leading of Asanas are mindful and present. I continue to be her student, and will start teaching Yoga within the next 6-8 weeks. I am thankful she is my Yoga teacher. She made this training a life changing experience for me.

Kristin is so full of knowledge regarding alignment and asana, the philosophy of yoga and intelligent sequencing. Her passion for all aspects of yoga is apparent in her teaching and as a result it was really fun, easy and interesting to learn from her. I highly recommend this training to anyone looking to sharpen their teaching skills or expand their knowledge of yoga as a whole.

Everything I wanted to get out of this training, I did. This training program will definitely advance and deepen your knowledge. I highly recommend it!

Home Yoga 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training was Excellent. The sequencing, anatomy, injury prevention and yoga sutra’s exceeded my expectations.
