This past summer I completed yoga teacher training at Jamie Surya Yoga Studio and I'm in my mid 50's!  The journey transformed my life and deepened my joy for yoga. Jamie, with all her good humor, bubbly and open hearted presence, has created a warm inclusive community for yogis at ALL levels. Every time I walk into her cozy studio, I feel I have entered a sacred space; a place where I always meet so many spectacular men and women of all ages looking for the same feeling of bliss. Jamie has created that perfect space for anyone looking for a yoga studio they can call home.

"It was a delight to find Jamie's studio in the sweet town of Sparkill.  Jamie is wise beyond her years and extremely devoted to what she does.  It is obvious that she has deeply immersed herself in the world of yoga and her teaching exemplifies her passion for yoga.  She has an incredible gift for the story telling of ancient yogic texts, which made my Western training all the more worthwhile. She is creative and yet traditional in teaching Asanas, giving me a solid and confident base line, emphasizing energy, form and safety. She and Andres have high expectations of their students but bring a lightness to their teaching akin to a modern Burns and Allen - I often left our weekends smiling."  - Nathalie

"I never really planned to take a yoga teacher training. I just love my practice so much that I wanted to learn more. And now it seems so clear that of course I would want to share my love of yoga with others. I have so much gratitude for Jamie and Andres and all the excellent teachers who contributed to our training and who live and love what they teach. If you are considering pursuing yoga teacher training, definitely go for it! It has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life.”

"I was hesitant about joining a yoga teacher training program.  I was afraid I was taking on too much.  It was one of the best decisions I ever made.  Jamie's program has a very flexible schedule which made it work for me.  Jamie was absolutely fabulous!  She was extremely encouraging, patient and made the entire experience wonderful!  I learned a great deal and physically felt great during my teacher training.  I also made some fabulous new friends that will forever be a part of my yoga family!" - Jen

I could not imagine having found a safer, more secure environment for my teacher training, than at Jamie Surya Yoga Studio. Already having a career of my own, I was hesitant to do the training, even if just to deepen my practice. But with Jamie's encouragement, and the confidence she instills in others, I decided to take the leap, and my life will never be the same.  If you've ever had any desire to do a teacher training, do yourself a favor and check out Jamie Surya Yoga Studio. You will be glad you did!
