Parallel 45’s yoga teacher training was truly a life-changing experience. I now have the confidence and skills to pursue my passion and develop into my best self. Since yoga teacher training, I have been teaching studio classes and building an adventure yoga business that combines my love of hiking, backpacking, and outdoor adventure with the practice of yoga.

Parallel University’s yoga teacher training program is something I would recommend to anyone thinking about becoming a yoga teacher. Kelsey, Kelsey, and Riley are fantastic teachers. They create a safe space to process and learn while simultaneously challenge their students to push themselves. It was so great to become part of a community of yoga teachers and students who are dedicated to and passionate about their practice.

The environment was very inclusive and the program itself was efficient and well rounded. I finished the program feeling completely prepared to teach and with an entirely new understanding of my personal practice. I would recommend this TT to anyone!

I was hesitant at first to do a yoga teacher training course, I told myself for years I was too uncomfortable talking in front of people and I could never teach. After going to yoga classes at Parallel 45 consistently, I knew I was in a safe place to grow as a person. Kelsey D, Kelsey H and Riley provided a comfortable environment to be vulnerable and develop as a yogi. I gained the confidence to step out of my comfort zone, be more open and take chances. I realized my self worth and I found a community!
