The training is diverse. It’s all-encompassing and leaves you with a taste of the many different forms that yoga can take while inviting you to find your own version to share.” –Kristina Sandi

“The time I spent with Inbody Academy was invaluable. In addition to establishing the skills required to lead a yoga class, I developed tools to incorporate into my everyday life to help me live from a place of balance, love, and compassion. I was given a platform to speak vulnerably, to fall and get back up, and to dig through the inner shells of who I am. I went into the program stressed out and emotionally drained and left with a shifted perspective on life.“
