2019-2020 YMYTT200 Graduates Feedback:
- Our Yogi, Loretta Jo, went several extra “miles” to take us on this journey during 2020. She made it happen and we are all so appreciative and grateful. So much more than a Yoga Teacher Training. ❤
- I will definitely recommend Yoga-Mojo/Loretta Jo Schlatzer to anyone seeking a deeper experience in Yoga. Her kind and compassionate professionalism is spot on. The instruction and material she provides is probably the best out there. I compared schools before I signed up for training and Yoga-Mojo outranked any of the other providers. She also came highly recommended by a trusted friend. Not only am I able to teach now but I also have a mentor I trust.
- Beyond her vast knowledge of yoga, Loretta Jo shares her gifts, including the playing the harmonium, her style of story telling, her personal experiences and the methodology of sharing her practice.
Yoga-Mojo is an authentic Vinyasa practice that is a blend of various styles and methods incorporating breath work (pranayama), asana (poses), meditation (dhyana), concentration (dharana) and more. A practice that is designed to let students explore their bodies & their minds and to move effortlessly with grace, pose-to-pose and breath-by-breath. Join me for practice on the mat with mantras, mudras and mythology~
