“The 200 hr yoga teacher training at 3b yoga gave me invaluable insight into not only the practice of yoga but myself, both as a teacher and a person. I have gone on to teach yoga abroad, host yoga retreats and run my own 200 hr YTT in Illinois, all with the knowledge I learned in this foundational training. Amy Williams is an extraordinary teacher and teacher of teachers. I continue to consider her one of my greatest influences and mentors.”
