“It was the most profound experience I have had to date and I am forever changed.”
"The training was nothing like I expected as the depth of the content was beyond anything I could have ever hoped for. While Myra had informed me that the training was much deeper than just learning some poses, I was unprepared for how much she had to offer us in this training. It was the most profound experience I have had to date and I am forever changed.”

“This is much more than teacher training,
this is life training.”
"This is much more than teacher training, this is life training. Yes, I learned how to be an effective and knowledgeable Yoga instructor – but more importantly, I learned how to heal myself from many physical, emotional, mental and spiritual ailments.
“Every meal we ate during the training was the best meal I have ever had, and I am now taking what I learned and applying it to the best meals ever in my kitchen at home. The setting of the training is magnificent, Myra and the Hale Pule staff are wise and wonderful and the food is the best you will find anywhere on this planet. The overall experience is life-enriching and soul-nourishing."

“I have no back pain, no cold and I have a greater appreciation for the true meaning of Yoga.”
“Before coming to the 500-hour teacher training I had pink eye, a terrible chest cold, a fallen metatarsal arch in my left foot that I'd had for months and a pulled back. I wasn't sure I should even join but Myra assured me it would be okay. I wanted to do this training to learn more about how I can help injured and sick students, and with Myra's philosophy of ‘talk the talk, walk the walk,’ and ‘be your own science experiment,’ I feel confident in doing that. I've taken all of the information we have been learning and I integrated it into my life. I eat meals with consciousness, I slow down, and I have been working with my subtle healing energy. At the training I learned to practice asana with correct alignment and was able to move beyond old beliefs that my body is ‘bad.’ At the end of the first segment of this training, my arch is 90% healed and I have no back pain, no cold and I have a greater appreciation for the true meaning of Yoga.”

“Every day presented new opportunities
for growth and learning.”
"If you're looking for a transformative life experience with authentic spiritual guidance, then being a student of Myra's is an excellent choice! Every day presented new opportunities for growth and learning. With time for questions, personal reflection and group learning, along with teaching students from the community, the learning environment was disciplined, yet balanced."

“The training far exceeded my expectations, and was truly life changing!”
"I found the teacher training with Myra Lewin invaluable to my growth as a teacher and in the development of my personal Yoga and Ayurveda practice. Myra uses every moment as a teaching opportunity and is able to share her vast wealth of knowledge and experience in these practices. The training far exceeded my expectations, and was truly life changing!"

"I would recommend this course to everyone.”
“The training was about life itself rather than just learning how to be skillful in Yoga poses. Every day was an encounter with a new world. I hope I will never forget those moments for the rest of my life. The greatest findings, for me, were self-love and the sense of connection to my higher self. It’s now easier to be kind to others and nature, not to mention to myself also. I would recommend this course to everyone.”
“The training was the greatest gift
I have ever received.”
"The training was the greatest gift I have ever received. Every moment was an opportunity for exploration and learning, and we were guided beautifully on a journey within. The practice of meditation, pranayama, and asana helped solidify the connection between my mind and body, and gave me space to remember who I am as eternal spirit."

“This Yoga teacher training helped me develop a personal practice based on ahimsa: non-violence.”
“The journey through the 200-hour teacher training was ultimately a journey within. I came away with tools to help me restore calmness to my mind, ease of movement in my body and refreshment of my spirit. I feel changed, as if outer layers have been washed away, making way for fresh new awareness to rise.
“I came to Yoga from an athletic background where overstretching and forcing my limits was habitual. This Yoga teacher training helped me develop a personal practice based on ahimsa: non-violence. I look forward to sharing this practice with others.”

“The training gave me the strength and internal resources I needed to simply be in the world.”
"The training gave me the strength and internal resources I needed to simply be in the world. Before the training I felt victimized by society and blamed externals for my problems. The teacher training at Hale Pule doesn’t only provide the skills needed to lead a Yoga class, it creates teachers who are grounded and confident in their own being, which means a large amount of introspection and self-work during the training."

“My experience and training in the sciences of Yoga and Ayurveda has allowed me to open up in ways I never imagined.”
“I am blessed to be able to learn the ancient art of Yoga and Ayurveda from Myra Lewin, a very wise, experienced and compassionate teacher. My experience and training in the sciences of Yoga and Ayurveda has allowed me to open up in ways I never imagined. Since changing my diet and incorporating specific Yoga and meditation techniques (suited to my personality), I feel that I have completely transformed myself and have taken leaps and bounds in my spiritual practice.”
