~ Back in Sept. 2018 I enrolled in the 200 RYT course at Tammy Z’s Yoga School. I was new to Yoga with only a few classes under my belt prior to enrolling, but Tammy & my daughter Megan (Who took Tammy’s 200RYT class in 2016) both encouraged me & assured me I would be able to complete the training. Tammy is kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, professional & so very good at what she does! I can’t recommend her 200 hr YTT course enough. Taking the class was truly one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I am confident & prepared to go out & help others on this Yoga journey. ~Teri Rickleff
~ I highly recommend Tammy Z’s 200 hour YTT. As a mental health professional & recent graduate, I have been able to successfully apply many of the concepts & skills covered in this course. Tammy is a compassionate, knowledgeable, & dedicated instructor who goes to admirable lengths to ensure her students learn & succeed in achieving their goals. ~Susan
