"TYC has been a great help to me both individually and for my patients. I find their approach and knowledge of yoga as a healing modality to be very beneficial. I have enjoyed the classes I have attended very much and have never had a better yoga experience. Several of my patients have also had significant improvements in the quality of their health because of the their participation at TYC. I look forward to many more rewarding experiences with TYC." -- Erik Lundquist, MD Director of Temecula Center for Integrative Medicine
This community has opened my heart in ways I could have never anticipated. The TYC is a place where I feel safe to venture out on the "skinny branches," as I explore and expand my perspectives. The teachers are highly trained, and in their own unique way, validate who I am. Their guidance and inspiration push me to be my best, and provide me with tools to navigate through my every day life, as authentically and openly as I can. Everyone here is interested in growing and expanding past their boundaries, and it is exciting and inspiring to be around people with that kind of energy! After class, I always feel less stressed, more grounded and strong, and a lot more knowledgable about anatomy! Most importantly, TYC honors all the components involved with the organization - the teachers, the students, and the community.
I love being a teacher @ TYC, more than that I thoroughly enjoy being a collective part of the community.
I remember when the TYC was just a seed, not yet planted, rooted, or growing....but a dream, an idea....with a vision of many (community) coming together from different life enhancing fields collectively to support each other, learn from, grow with & strengthen not just as individuals, but reaching beyond that to uplift those near, far, known and unknown. It has been a joy to see this fruition take place as well as be a part of it.
I love knowing that I am supported as a teacher, a student, a friend, whether things are going smooth and graceful or turbulent & challenging.
I love the friendships/ relationships that have been formed in this community and beyond. The sharing of ideas, celebration of successes as well as the subtle/sweet supportive encouragement during struggles. I am ecstatic to see how the students new to the Collective are welcomed with open arms & open hearts, not just by the teachers and owners but by the kula (yoga community), allowing those unknowing or unsure to feel & know that they are safe, they are home and that they too are part of something even bigger.
