    In just the past 8 months I have completed the 200 hour and 300 hour teacher trainings with Living In the Self. I have also just returned from the India pilgrimage with Kristof and Tiffany. These beautiful beings are so deeply committed to sharing Hatha yoga and Advaita Vedanta. Their presence and teachings beautifully guide involution and create a container in which one can rest in Self. Words are not sufficient to describe the gifts I've received from my time with Kristof and Tiffany. My heart wishes you the opportunity to experience these gifts for yourself.

    What do I think of Living in the Self? I think that any program, retreat or workshop you do with Tiffany and Kristoff will only change and transform your life for the better. Their genuineness, compassion and love is felt through their hugs, their words and their comforting presence. If you have any reservation or question about signing up for anything that they create, drop the hesitation and go. Your life will thank you for it. Mine does. 🙂 From Living in Self Facebook Page

    It is so difficult to describe in words events, experiences, teachings and people that so profoundly change your world. How do you rate something so priceless and real? But let's try. Teaching yoga and meditation is a wonderful and valuable skill, but learning who you are and how to BE who you are and walk in a world without judgement is a gift that has a never ending ripple. If your heart has lead you here, you are most definitely in the right place. Tiffany and Kristof will teach you more than just how to teach others how to bend and stretch, they will teach you how to heal..yourself and others through this most amazing gift of Yoga. Learn the profound gift of yoga, through the most loving, caring, authentic and genuine people...then learn how to share this priceless gift with the world... So much gratitude...

    It's difficult to put into words how much Kristoff and Tiffany of Living in the Self-have impacted and changed my life both personally and as a Yoga Teacher. Both Kristoff and Tiffany are true reflection of years steeped in Yoga and a divine expression of the essence of Love. If you are looking for a program that will nourish you, challenge you, educate you, inspire you and motivate while being seated in the heart of Classical Yoga - then look no further then Living in the Self.

    This training was such a beautiful and useful experience . It dove deeply into philosophy and healing benefits of yoga while remaining I I loved their 200 Hr yoga yeacher traini g . It dove deep into the tradition and philosophy of yoga while still remaining accessible to people from so many different backgrounds . I used what I learned in the training and have been practicing and teaching ever since . I hope to get to take another training with them soon . These guys made me feel so welcome! Since my training I also attended a very powerful meditation retreat and a sacred relationships retreat . If you have the chance to take a training or go on a retreat I would definitely recommend it !!! From Living in Self Facebook Page

    What can be said? They have shown me how to transform my life. You will learn physical postures, but much more than that, you will discover that wholeness is not only possible, but it is your birthright. Fragmentation, emptiness and darkness are met with love, compassion and the tools to transform them into light. I've said this many times, but it is true that Tiffany and Kristoff have been my guides on a path that has saved my life. From Living in Self Facebook Page
