Probably one of the most practical, relevant courses I’ve taken through Yogaville. Dr. Cunningham offers a blend of lecture with experiential learning. We created tools that can be immediately implemented. I personally think that section one and components of section two should be core modules of Yoga Teacher Trainings. — Kathy Kondas

This class was well worth the time and cost. It would be hard to find a more qualified or passionate teacher.—Elissa Levin

I highly recommend Dr. Mala Cunningham’s course. She is a brilliant teacher and imparts the information in the most interesting and useful way! Those who took her course in Gibraltar absolutely loved it. We had amazing, positive comments from all participants. — Nalanie Chellaram
