My YTT experience with Hali Love was transformational. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience that is awe-inspiring. She leads by example and brings her truest self forward in every moment. In this course, I discovered the importance of self-love and healing through emotional expression and communication. With Hali’s close guidance, I explored yoga beyond just the physical practice and learned how to realign my mind, body, and soul." Josie
"I went to teacher training not wanting to be a teacher, but to further my practice. I had no idea what to expect. I was expecting asana practice. A lot of it. And with two hours of practice every day, I definitely got it. But there was SO much more. One thing Hali said that resonated with me the most was "Anyone can memorize a sequence. It's who you become along the way that people are going to be attracted to. It's your most authentic self that will draw people to you. Not only filling your classes, but filling your life". And that is where the journey began. What I learned about myself during my 200 hour teacher training completely turned my world around. I began to live outside my little bubble and started to see the bigger picture." Stef
"There was a measurable shift in my life ~ my practice ~ my yoga offering after Hali's 200 Hour Teacher Training with Multi Style Yoga! Each style of yoga has a different impact in our bodies and on our mats. Hali shares her immense knowledge freely and empowers you to make authentic choices. There is something very special about MSYI!" Laurel
"I was guided from love and truth during my 200 Hour YTT. Since my program, I have learned so much about myself and how my way of being was radiating into my world! I'm leaving my pattern of procrastination behind and have moved into action! I have gratitude for MSYI." Danna
"My experience at yoga teacher training with Multi Style Yoga and Hali Love was simply incredible. By day 2 it was clear that this was something EVERYONE should experience. By day 16 my body, mind and spirit were so open, connected and so ready to keep learning. Hali created spaced for dialogue, new thoughts and change. I am a carpenter and never having the thought that I would teach yoga, I originally went to yoga teacher training for personal development. I had been witness to my wife’s transformation with Hali. So I had some idea of what to expect but my expectations were blown out of the water." John
