Here's what our most recent graduate, Dr. Diane Arnaout, had to say about our training: "I decided to enroll in BHTTS mostly just to expand my knowledge of yoga and to learn the why's of Baptiste sequencing. I also wanted to improve in my own practice.
What I got out of it was all of that and more. I have a busy career and small kids; I wasn’t sure how teacher training was going to fit into the routine, but I soon felt my time at BHTTS was sacred and necessary. I looked forward to every single minute. It was my time for (sometimes brutally) honest self-reflection, education, unwavering support from new friends, and tons of yoga practice and improvements.
I am a physician. This doesn't make my opinion of this school any more or less important than anyone else's. But I would like to express a point: I base my career - my life choices really - on the scientific method and accurate representation of facts.
I was wary going into this - I was worried about drowning in the yoga lore, and getting frustrated while sinking in the differences between western medicine and 'alternative treatment', as yoga has often been labeled.
Brooke Hamblet makes it very clear from the beginning that she's out to teach the facts. The WHY of Baptiste yoga. The symbiotic approach of yoga and western medicine in healing the body and mind. The WHY and HOW of the way our bodies work - sometimes even on a cellular level - and the benefits of yoga.
She dives into anatomy and physiology, stuff I hadn't studied up since medical school - but not too deep. She keeps it real, and understandable, and relatable, but not too much to overwhelm.
Special speakers are brought in to discuss injury, pain, and healing. You’re even taught how to use your voice to successfully communicate and lead others by an acting coach. You are given tons of literature. And you’re expected to do your own self-study. I respected her educative process.” WE'RE SO PROUD OF YOU, DIANE!!! #learningandleading #BHTTS #lionheart #mandala #arrow #pea #hansolo
