"1 month after completing my 200 Hour Yoga TTC with Jamie Lee, I just want to share a few words about my one-month-intensive exprience... I am so grateful for Jamie Lee's devotion during the training. I knew him to be strict and very knowledgeable about the methods he teaches, sometimes making by impatient beginner mind frustrated as he wanted me to progress surely, one step at the time. This is what makes me feel (now I understood) completely confident regarding his teaching, or as I receive adjustments. Jamie also knew how to wreak havoc in our restricted minds, as we questionned many of our believes, through theory, chakra exercises, meditation... I had chosen Jamie's training following my instinct, as I was looking for a spiritual experience as well as a challenging physical training and a complete teaching course. I am today very grateful for my choice. I wanted an experience that would change my life in some way but at the same time did not really believe in this.
Well, the end of the training coincided with many important changes in my life. For sure, it gave me the energy and consciousness to make important decisions. And I was surprised when some of my colleagues told me after, "You are a different person", "You are stunning", cause I had not realized how bad I had been feeling for the past months, and how bad I looked! :p Thank you sooo much Jamie Lee!"

"I've always admired Jamie's dedication, discipline and passion for Ashtanga yoga. His commitment is the foundation of his very strong practice and amazing teaching skills. He's always seeking, searching and deepening his understanding of the body-mind-soul connection. And his TT is the best moment to grab the opportunity to benefit from his knowledge and curiosity.
He values the effort, the discipline and the devotion necessary to a lifetime of practicing yoga. And you can expect nothing less than his very best during his TT.
I deepened my practice on the mat with him before enrolling in his TT last summer.
Jamie created a sacred space for us to unfold as teacher, using our stories, strengths and knowledge to build our own style of teaching.
No questions were left unanswered, from the physical to the subtle body. The curriculum includes a well-balanced schedule of workshops, practices, meditation and spiritual teachings.
It was a month of deep transformation. Not only have I found friendships that will last a lifetime, but I always now have a connection with a teacher I know will always be there to answer my questions and lead me to a healthy practice. He values the teacher-student relationship, being an eternal student himself.
That's priceless and I'm so grateful for that."

"Jamie’s teacher training was a fantastic experience. He’s created a great environment to gain an in-depth understanding of the Ashtanga practice, and his considerable experience really showed. He was always able and willing to answer any question that came up, and really helped me gain the skills I wanted as a novice instructor. My personal practice also improved, and now I feel like I have the knowledge to continue to grow in a sustainable, balanced way. Even though at times things were physically and mentally challenging, I wouldn’t trade the experience I had for anything. I can’t recommend Jamie’s course enough!"

"I took Jamie's teacher training not knowing what to expect. Conquering fears of the unknown, fulfilling a strong desire to learn more about Yoga and overcoming a fear of public speaking are three things I got in what I can only call an intense life journey. Yes, one month is a very challenging timeframe to engage in on so many levels, but if you can make it work, you will realize how blessed you are to have been able to live it. Through the practice-teaching and Chakra work, I was able to find my own true teaching voice. I felt so comfortable with Jamie as my guide not only in asana, but in meditation, nidra, and even how to bring yoga into the world, that I would not hesitate to recommend his training to anyone. It is refreshing to have a teacher who practices what he preaches, and who does not hesitate to call upon experts in related fields. If you are looking for a complete YTT, this fits the bill. You will not just learn the basics, you will delve much deeper than you could ever expect."

"Jamie Lee’s Ashtanga Teacher Training Program completely changed the way I look at and practice yoga. It made me a more reflective (inner and outer) person. Jamie Lee took the material and made it comprehensive and added his experiences to make the course amazing. The course does not only teach you how to be a great yoga teacher but a more complete person. The program focused on all kinds of aspects of yoga from sequencing and pranayama to anatomy and meditation. I didn’t think I was physically ready to do it at the beginning and was nervous. This program gave me the confidence and was very welcoming. Jamie is an exceptional teacher, he is very observant and gets to know every student. You can see he is very passionate about yoga which translates into this program. I am very happy I made the choice to take the program and would do it again.
Thank you for the life changing experience."
