Some first-hand thoughts from our #followthedetour community...


Just wanted to say a BIG thank you to you both for putting together such an awesome program.  Can't tell you how much I'm enjoying the weekends - the pace, content, practice.  It's just amazing.  It's obvious that you guys have put a lot of time and energy into creating a program that extends beyond traditional teacher training. Just phenomenal. -CY

Best experience of my life, and that's after just two weekends. Cecily and Kathryn have created a curriculum that far exceeds the standards of a typical YTT. - JB

I was grieving a little bit about the fact that I could not plunge into more training and teaching after I took [another] TT in 2012. Now I think it was my luck that I had to take a few years off and restart the whole thing now because I discovered both of your classes and the Yoga Detour. It surely has saved me a number of injuries and is guiding me now into a truly mindful and integrated practice and, down the road, safer teaching and sharing it with other people. Your approach resonates with me on the deepest level and inspires me to keep going. - AB

This course plan is ambitious but every aspect is delivered thoroughly.  Questioning is encouraged and all concerns met with patient and competent response. The magic is in having two teachers at our disposal both with an intuitive and synchronistic understanding of each other’s methods. Their support of each other has an effect on the whole atmosphere. The information we're receiving comes from material they have personally tackled and resolved in their own practice—we're fortunate to get the benefit of their experience. It was witnessing a living science.    - ML

I wanted to thank you for connecting so much of what you teach to how you can live more functionally in your body on a day-to-day basis (not just on a yoga mat). For example, the week after your workshop I realized how unhealthy my movements were when doing things like getting dressed, vacuuming, or emptying the dishwasher - I was tucking my butt and breaking at the waist to do all these things. Now I've turned all these mundane activities into opportunities for squatting, hip hinging, and maintaining a neutral spine, and after a few weeks I've broken a lot of my old habits (and hopefully I'm strengthening my body in the process). In 5 years of yoga practice I've workshopped with a lot of people, but everything I've learned has only applied to yoga (which I only spend a couple of hours doing each week). If I had one piece of feedback for you, it would be to continue to make healthy everyday movement a focus in your teachings because your workshop actually changed the way I move my body on a daily (if not minute-by-minute) basis! - RA
