What Big Rock Yoga Teacher Training Graduates have to say:

"Big Rock Yoga Teacher Training is so much more than just curriculum and yoga instruction. Wendy Cook is masterful in guiding students through a holistic journey of self-exploration and discovery. I particularly enjoyed the writings and discussions, where we regularly evaluated our beliefs and opinions in an objective, non-judgmental format. The yoga practice on our mats mirrored this practice of acceptance for ourselves and others.I am now eager to share my yoga knowledge with my students while being an example of the peaceful life that can be had by truly living in the present." ~ Illene "Gogo" S., Batesville, AR


" I wasn't sure what to expect when I signed up for teacher training, but what I received was far more than I could have ever imagined.  Teacher training allowed me to see the possibilities that life has to offer, that being vulnerable is ok, but most of all it taught me that allowing yourself to feel is a miraculous and healing process.  I am truly grateful and blessed to have this experience." ~Jessica O., Russellville, AR
