From our reviews on Facebook:
Great program that fit my schedule (training on the weekends)! Amazing and informative teachers that truly care about students and teach safe/informative yoga! This school is also a part of MyCAA, which is wonderful military spouses. Love the small class sizes too — able to bond with other students and have the time and attention from the teachers! Can’t say enough good things!
If you are passionate about your yoga practice and want to take it to the next level then Yoga Legacy has the training program for you. They have a flexible program hosted on the weekends In the Raleigh NC area. The facilitators are very friendly, personable, knowledgeable, and honest about their teaching and guiding you in your journey to deepen your practice and pursue your yogi career as a 200RYT. I am so thankful for this school and everyone associated with them and look forward to receiving further training from them as I pursue my 500RYT.
Yoga Legacy was the perfect RYT program for me to learn and grow in my practice. They helped transform me from a yoga practitioner to a certified yoga teacher. The facilitators are helpful, knowledgable, honest, and caring. They continue to guide me even after training and feel like family that I can come to should I need help with my practice in the future. I could go on and on… I just absolutely loved my RYT200 training with Yoga Legacy.
What our trainees said about us when they registered with Yoga Alliance:
Yoga Alliance is the best yoga training program out there. I am truly blessed to have been a part of their program. Pat and Kaye care about every student, guiding them throughout the program to ensure they learn and grow as an instructor. Their program is thorough and complete. Emphasis on safety and providing the best class for a participant. They are positive and inviting people, always encouraging students. Their experience and knowledge shows throughout the training process. They go above and beyond when it comes to their students. Yoga Legacy is a program which truly cares for their students and their learning. Training under Yoga Legacy is the BEST thing I have ever done. I have gained so much more than knowledge on yoga poses. I have become a better person through the process. I would highly recommend everyone take yoga training with Yoga Legacy.(Karly P.)
Yoga Legacy is first and foremost, an incredible organization. Kaye and Pat are always there to guide you along your journey with their never ending patience, support and endless knowledge. I love that they let you find your own path throughout the training as opposed to having everyone to be the same. This was very important to me, and from that, I learned so much from my peers and instructors. I absolutely love every single instructor/facilitator at Yoga Legacy. While they each bring something different to the table, their love and passion for yoga and teaching really shines through and inspires you each day. Yoga Legacy is an excellent school. I am so thankful for our intense training and studies of proper alignment – Every teacher should have Yoga Legacy’s training on proper alignment and injury prevention! I am immensely thankful for being able to teach throughout our training to my peers to better ourselves and work out all of those nervous jitters before teaching outside of school. Yoga Legacy has truly changed my life. I could never thank Kaye or Pat enough for all of the love, encouragement and knowledge they have given me. Thank you to each and every member of the Yoga Legacy Family for making my journey so beautifully amazing! (Jenn H.)
Pat and Kaye were present at each training, but they also extended their expertise and availability beyond the classroom. They are always available through email and text, which makes their trainees feel respected and supported. They are incredibly knowledgable and amazing mentors. If anyone is looking to become a yoga instructor or further develop their own practice, I would HIGHLY recommend Yoga Legacy. The instructors are knowledgeable, supportive, and model yogic principles in a noncompetitive atmosphere. As leaders, Pat and Kaye are very “real”. They understand how challenging it can be to lead busy lives balancing work, family, personal and professional development, and LIFE! They make their training accessible, meaningful, and inspirational, and work with you on a very personal level. They have each trainee’s best interest at heart, and work diligently to develop their talent, self confidence, and humbleness that teaching yoga requires. I am incredibly blessed to have gone through this training, and feel I have received a well rounded yoga education. I will always be thankful for Yoga Legacy’s guidance and can’t wait to learn more! (Alison V.)
I can’t thank Pat, Kaye, & all of the teachers in Yoga Legacy enough for guiding and showing me my path in yoga practice. The convenience and flexibility of weekend classes was very helpful especially for some of us who worked the weekdays or traveled outside the area. I particular appreciate how the teachers are not only driven to teach safety, alignment, & the science of yoga but also their dedication to educate us on the traditions and deeper meaning of yoga. (Elsa B.)
Yoga Legacy has a great program for anyone who can only complete training on the weekends, twice a month. The schedule is flexible if you need it to be but starting with Module 1 and completing the training in order aligns the information presented to be easily related to other modules. The instructors are professional yet down to earth, encouraging, and pour their heart and soul into making sure you have the knowledge and ability to feel confident in every class you teach. In the program alone I had more than 10 teaching hours in a group setting which helped build my confidence for interviewing at studios in my local area. I highly recommend this school and plan to go through them for some of my future training now that I hold my 200 RYT. (Elyse R.)
Yoga teacher training was an excellent experience for me. (Carrie M.)
Teacher training at Yoga Legacy has been an absolute delight. I thoroughly enjoyed each weekend session and the training far exceeded my expectations- not only with the curriculum and amount of knowledge I’ve gained, but also with the support and encouragement I received along the way. Working full time outside of training, I was initially worried about my scheduling. However, Pat and Kaye were extremely understanding and flexible with me. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to grow and learn from this training. The transformation that has taken place in me over the past year is largely attributed to this training and the people I’ve been blessed to meet along the way. There is no doubt that this training has prepared me for my yoga journey ahead. (Kristin C.)
Yoga Legacy has such amazing and passionate teachers. Such a wide variety of styles and knowledge of the teachers. There was great communication and willingness to help work with the students. (X. Waters)
Teacher Training with Yoga Legacy was a great experience. They were always very helpful and responsive throughout the entire process. They have a great focus on safety of the student. I have learned so much and truly appreciate the YL program. (Marissa S.)
I cannot share enough how Yoga Legacy’s program helped me achieve my goals as a Yoga Teacher. It was something I always wanted to do! After meeting Pat and hearing of her Yoga Legacy teacher-training program with Kaye, I decided the stars had aligned and my timing was right! Not only was my timing right, but my intuition was spot on. The program Pat and Kaye have cultivated is challenging at times but definitely pushed me to my potential. We began teaching on our very first module so I walked away from this program prepared to take on any yoga class. Pat and Kaye taught with true knowledge and integrated a deeper meaning to Yoga as a whole to their program and I thank them immensely for my experience. I have taken away so much from this journey. I have found my inner peace and I look forward to continuing my growth and sharing what I’ve learned with others. Thank you again Yoga Legacy! (Jenny T.)
