“I really cannot say enough wonderful things about this amazing, sacred space and all of the loving, kind people who work here. I just completed the 200 hour bliss body yoga teacher training this past weekend and it was such a healing, life changing experience. The curriculum was lovingly and mindfully developed, facilitated and shared with us by Jennie and her fellow trainers in such a way that we all felt safe, supported and loved as family. The community that we created in this space during this training will live on forever in my heart and I will be forever grateful that I took this leap of faith and joined this training. Not only do I feel qualified to be a yoga teacher, I have changed for the better as a person and realized my life’s truest purpose. If you are considering this studio for yoga or to complete your 200 hour training I would encourage you to go for it! You will absolutely thrive here!” -Lisa S.

“I am about to complete the current 200 hour training to become a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) through Arcana. I highly recommend this training to anyone whether you are just looking for community, self-care and to deepen your practice or you want to become a full-fledged yoga teacher with a plethora of knowledge, skills and ability. Let me tell you, this was the best self-care decision I have ever made, by far… I’ve learned to tap back into my subtle nature and become attuned to my needs and desires as a result of walking through this process. I cannot say enough about Jennie Joan as a facilitator. Her caring goes beyond the space; she genuinely cares about the lives of each individual in her training. We have all become one big family through the vulnerability, fun-loving nature, endurance and light the training has brought out in each one of us. I am beyond grateful to call Jennie a mentor and a friend. She is compassionate, understanding, generous, bold, lively, funny, raw and REAL. She really listened to our questions and concerns while respecting confidentiality when appropriate. I really appreciated how intuitive she was during the training, when she picked up on the fact that we were becoming sleepy from sitting too long, she would have us all stand up and take any free flowing movements of our choice (dancing to dope music became a regular ). She balanced this out with being considerate of our time and pulling our attention in and refocusing us when necessary. Having been encouraged to take several opportunities to discover different aspects and styles of yoga and being provided an abundance of education including working with special populations and the spiritual side of yoga I can honestly say I feel confident, excited and ready to be a yoga teacher myself. I hope you take this opportunity to dive in, I promise you won’t regret it. .”

“The YTT at Arcana changed me. I am stronger, braver, more capable, and more courageous than I have ever been. I feel powerful and soft, resilient and versatile. This opportunity has been a treasure and a gift; it saved me. I don’t remember who I was before I entered this training, but I am beholden to the fact that I was willing to say yes to it and begin the journey.”
