Your yoga journey is one of self-discovery, an enlightening expedition into the depths of one's own essence. It is a profound process of introspection and exploration, wherein individuals unravel the layers of their identity, aspirations, and beliefs. As they navigate the intricate labyrinth of emotions, experiences, and aspirations, they forge an intimate connection with their true selves, unearthing hidden passions and unlocking the doors to personal growth. This voyage of self-discovery is both empowering and humbling, a transformative odyssey that empowers individuals to embrace authenticity, harness their potential, and cultivate a profound sense of purpose in the tapestry of existence. To sum it up in one word, yoga.

TESTIMONIALS

Sutra is an incredible studio where you feel like you're family. Their yoga certification program is informative and transformative. I highly recommend Sutra for any reason. - Meagan

The program at Sutra is amazing!! Rebecca is so authentic and passionate about what she does. - Brittany

 

Oh, Sutra Studios... No amount of words could describe my gratitude for this place. From the first moment, it feels like a warm motherly hug. Rebecca and her family have created a beautiful, comfortable, and creative space for all levels. From the first step, greeted with so many smiling faces (all pretty much identical, just in different sizes), to yoga buzz as you walk out, this place is nothing short of magical. Rebecca is a natural teacher, for lessons on the mat and off. It took two of her classes for me to jump into the Yoga Teacher Training, for which helped me unlock the cage I put around myself and move freely with knowledge, love, and compassion. Forever grateful for this studio. Thank you, Matt and Rebecca! Harmony

My YTT experience at this studio gave me spiritual and emotional tools that helped mold me into a better man. I went into the program with no intention of teaching. I just wanted to deepen my practice. Along the way I learned a lot about myself: my emotions, my tendencies, my thought processes and my intentions in everyday life. The program as a whole gave me clarity on not only what was important to me and what steps I needed to take to get there, but also how to maintain focus and consistency to achieve the goals I had for myself. I learned how to manage my emotions in a healthy way but also taught me the importance of tools like therapy and communication to make that process easier. Communicating effectively and learning to listen to my inner self, my body, as well as others: these are the greatest lessons I’ve learned to date and they’ve helped me in both my business ventures as well as in my personal life. If I had the option to do this YTT again I would gladly do so in a heartbeat. Compared to other programs I researched, you get much more than other studios who are usually more focused on the spiritual aspect or on the asanas. This program gives you a health dose of both but also mediation, the history and physiology of yoga, and the art of proper adjustments (which are amazing by the way). After this program I became a teacher because I couldn’t keep all the good lessons I learned to myself. I was too excited to share everything I learned. If nothing else, please look into being a part of this community Rebecca has built. It will change your life. Josh

Sutra Studio YTT 200 hour program changed my life. I had been been teaching and had realized I hadn’t found my voice. When I chose to enroll in this program it was because of the vibe of the studio, students and the owners. The format allowed me to dive in to so many aspects of teaching I didn’t know existed. Rebecca has an amazing inspirational way of guiding a path while shining light individually for personal growth while holding space. I learned how to teach sharing my voice, vision and words. From sequencing to creating playlists I was honored to receive their knowledge. I share this review so others know what an absolute delight the program was, and the studio to teach at. Not only did it change the way I teach, but the way I live my life. I learned to witness and hold space. Blessings to this family business with such a deep history and knowledge of how to become a successful yoga instructor. Andrea 

YTT was everything I thought it would be and more. I cannot say enough good things about the program and instructors! Prior to YTT, I had taken yoga classes at the studio and really enjoyed the style of classes and the community that the studio built. When I signed up for yoga teacher training, I was looking to deepen my practice. I not only did that but the experience helped me push through my anxiety and find my voice. I went from never speaking up to finding my style and my confidence and ultimately teaching class and loving it. If you're looking for a rewarding and life changing experience, this program is for you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Best of luck! Maria 

Yoga teacher training at Sutra Studios was an incredible experience. This is not a cookie cutter 200 hour course, it is a well prepared immersive and transformational training curriculum that will allow you to become a confident teacher and lead your own classes upon graduation. Rebecca is a phenomenal instructor and well versed guide to discovering the true meaning behind yoga and how you too can inspire others down this enlightening path. I am grateful I had the opportunity to learn from this program and highly recommend it without reservation to anyone interested in teaching or even deepening their yoga practice. Goddess Circle Testimonial Goddess Circle is an inspirational and supportive community focused on women empowerment and self reflection in a safe and encouraging environment. Sessions guided by Rebecca Fritz present original material and the stepping stones to find your own sense of self love, potential, and fearlessness. I greatly enjoy these sessions and I have learned so much about myself and others in the process. You will walk away from the Goddess Circle with a new perspective on whatever challenges are present in your life. Laura

I completed my Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) at Sutra Studios and I’m glad I did. It was a life-changing experience. It was more than I expected and better than therapy. I felt ready to start teaching after the program alongside the mentorship of the owner, Rebecca. If you are ready for a deep-dive Sutra is worth checking out. Kristen

I believe I gravitated towards yoga because it was like the modern dance I did growing up. I've found yoga to be a beautiful form of self expression that deepens personal awareness, reenforces the mind-body connection, and prepares us for challenges off the mat. Sutra's vinyasa style is my first love and foremost informant for practicing yoga, a foundation I'm excited to expand upon. - Amanda 

I attended Sutra's YTT nearly 7yrs ago now and it still holds up as one of the best, most transformative experiences of my life! I was surrounded by such good people. Not only did i learn the ins and outs of asana, breathwork, meditation, I felt a part of a family who encouraged and supported me in my dreams. I look back and see this time as a sort of foundational spring board for the rest of my life. I was 18 at the time and after graduating spent the next several years backpacking, traveling, putting all the training of mind body spirit awareness and growth into practice. I really do attribute these life changes to that program and all it opened up and activated within me! I cant recommend this studio or this program enough!! Maddie

I signed up thinking I was just going to learn the anatomy and physiology of the body, how to properly do the poses, and how to structure a class. What I got was all of that plus SO MUCH MORE. I learned how to be more connected with myself, listen and follow my own dreams, and how to live and lead a happier, healthier life. Not a day goes by where I don't integrate the lessons shared both on and off the mat. This studio and the teacher training is a very special one and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a complete transformative experience. - Harm

Sutra’s YTT taught not only the physical, and spiritual fundamentals of yoga, but taught how to apply these principals to teaching. The ability to practice these fundamentals in the supportive training environment made this program worth the time, money, and effort. It also has a fun community atmosphere. - Renee

This was the most rewarding experience I’ve ever been through. Not only do I feel more than capable holding space with a class, but I also learned more about myself. - Lindsey

I received my yoga teaching certification with Sutra completing 200 hours and I must say this was a journey I will never forget. Whether you're looking to become a teacher or just to deepen your practice, Sutra Studios in my opinion was a great school. The teachers were knowledgeable, warm, and always held space for each of us students. I was able to take my time with my studies and purchase classes as I go. After receiving my certification I felt truly grateful for what I experienced and the knowledge I gained. - Dave

Sutra Studio's YTT program is life changing. - Kristen

Wonderful, well organized, and inspiring. This program is excellent in preparing students to be ready to teach after graduation. Incredible experience! - Laura

Sutra has exceeded my expectation for Yoga Teacher Training. I had searched for about 3 years and when I leaned Sutra had a Teacher Training to offer, everything clicked perfectly. The right place, the right time and the perfect instructors. Not only has Sutra created one of the best studios the Phoenix area has to offer, they have created the best community. Where other studios come off "corporate" or impersonal, Sutra is a warm and inviting group of people, both on and off the mat. While I know everyone is proud of their 'yoga' home, I have been to most studios in the Phoenix area, and Sutra humbly tops the list. - Dan

My Teacher Training at Sutra was a magical experience, and I have, and will continue, to recommend it to anyone looking to teach or deepen their practice. Love you guys XOXO - Shelly
