"Thank you. I am grateful I find Yoga for Humankind. Thank you to my teacher, Ria for introducing it to me. As mentioned, by far, this is the best school that I've attended. Accommodating, at home, I feel at peace, safe, and happy to be here. Thank you Mei Lai for all the things you do and for sharing your passion and your teaching. I will always look up to you. Thank you for putting in all the hard work, energy into this course and for the 100hrs for us to study especially for those who cant afford it. I am beyond grateful. Thank you, Thank you."


"Big thanks for the information, the practice, the guidance, the support and the community. It was such a wonderful space to learn. I felt seen, heard, held, guided and supported throughout the course. It felt wonderful and it made me want to provide the same kind of environment in my classes. Thank you so much!"


"It was such an interesting, engaging, practical and beautifully put together learning experience. Thank you. I appreciate the opportunity to learn and grow in a diverse, world wide community. I am thankful that I had the opportunity despite not coming from a yoga teacher background, I found the learning profound for my own journey and the work I do in the mental health sector."
