More practice experience than most programs: "As a studio owner, I can't tell you how many times I've interviewed graduates from other programs who simply were not prepared to teach a whole yoga class. In my program, I really deliver on my promise: Graduate with Confidence."

"It's difficult to explain into words how wonderful my experience was during my teacher training with Ella. I first met Ella a year and a half ago and immediately felt a warm welcoming from her, the teachers and Jai! She and the studio exude compassion for their students! If it were not for jai, I would not have felt confident to go through a teacher training. Ella exceeded my expectations as a teacher- she became my mentor!"
"The teacher training program at Jai Yoga Arts is life-changing. The program would have been worth doing even if I had not wanted to teach afterwards because the deepening of my practice and a greater understanding of the yogic philosophy were among the best things I got out of it. However, I did want to teach and was able to start right after graduation fully prepared and very confident. Ella is an amazing, experienced teacher who taught us everything needed to get started: yoga philosophy, anatomy, asanas and adjustments, sequencing and, most importantly, how to infuse classes with learning and fun. I'm so glad I did my teacher training at Jai. It's one of the best decisions I've ever made."
"Feeling a little lost in the New York lifestyle…
Jai’s teacher training with Ella Luckett is perfect for anyone looking find a strong united connection with oneself and the universe. Ella covers all aspects of a full yoga practice and really brings you back in touch with your true spirit in the process. These 200 hours left me feeling strong and confident in teaching a full yoga class as well as leading my own home practice. It has opened me up to share my love and creativity, I can’t even imagine not going through with this program! This will bring you light and clarity in your life you'll be ready to share."
"Jai Yoga has brought so much fun and compassion into my heart. Ella is this awesome, elegant, whack-a-doo lady, and the atmosphere at Jai is really open and loving. And because the program is so small and intimate, I've made some really great friends. I left every class feeling absolutely blissed out. I miss it so much already! I wouldn't trade the experience for anything."
Doing the Jai Teacher Training is one of the best choices I have ever made. I went in wanting to help other people but in turn found that I had truly helped myself. I became centered, unified, and more able to deal with life’s chaos. Jai Yoga Arts and Ella have helped foster immense growth within me, and in turn has given me the best foundation to become a teacher that can hopefully help others do the same with their lives. The training is all encompassing in the wellbeing of your mind, body, and soul. The wisdom and passion exuded by the Jai team and Ella Luckett will both empower and guide you to become a better person and in turn the best teacher you can be.
"Taking my teacher training with Ella was one of the best experiences of my life. I have never experienced a learning opportunity that not only encourages you to learn about the world and people around you, but also to learn about yourself. Throughout training she broke down each component of the yoga class in a clear and precise way and at the end of my training I felt confident and ready to teach. I can't imagine a more well-rounded training program and am forever grateful for those 200 hours." Erika Beaton
