Testimonial about AYC VariYoga Teacher Training – The training met me precisely where I was on my journey. As a trainee, I learned to do the same for my potential clients and myself. The length, order, and curated content of the program seemed to flow effortlessly. The extent of information I’ve been able to absorb and implement for my students is more than I could have possibly imagined!  An approach was truly offered for each individual learning style. It’s evident how much Andrea and Bryan absolutely want each student to succeed! If you want a complete foundation for your yoga/teaching journey, the
Arkansas Yoga Center will provide just that. – Jana Leeper, E-RYT500

Andrea Fournet has been bringing evidence based yoga to Arkansas since 1994.
