I would highly recommend Kramas YTT. I signed up for the training without knowing very much about Al and Jessica but after the first session knew I had made the right choice! They are so knowledgeable, approachable and thorough in their approach. They truly care about each and every student and made the process feel safe and manageable while still challenging us along the way. They helped create a sacred space among the trainees that led to a close knit community being formed. I felt fully prepared to lead and sequence a vinyasa style class after completing the training. In addition, they continue to provide support and guidance after the training is complete. Jessica and Al are truly amazing yogis and lead their YTT with passion, humor and love.”

“I decided on Kramas Yoga for my teacher training because I had been a student of Al's and knew how much I would learn on queuing, sequencing, and, of course, music. While that brought me to Kramas, I left with so much more. Jessica and Al really brought to life the essence of yoga from it's historical roots, emotional and physical benefits, and the community that it unites. I still learned plenty about sequencing and music, but found so much more than I anticipated. I became part of a beautiful and supportive community. I left the program feeling both confident that I can hold a safe and supportive space for my students and more connected with my physical and emotional personal practice.”

“I love my choice in teacher training program. I am a lawyer and wanted something intellectual, not just physical. And that is what I got. I was thrilled with the amount of philosophy, meditation, and anatomy on the syllabus. There is plenty of the physical, too (and then some), which deepened my physical practice more than I ever could have imagined. Jessica and Al both care deeply about their students and respect the ancient roots of Yoga. I loved that! I felt so treasured as their student. And still do.”
~Emily Dudak Leiter (YTT Graduate February 2019)
“I decided to do the 200 hour yoga teacher training with Jess and Al sort of on a whim. Today, I can say without hesitation that it was one of the best and most meaningful experiences I've ever had. First and foremost, Jess and Al are lovely people. They are knowledgeable and supportive instructors and very passionate about what they do and what they're trying to create through Kramas Yoga. They fostered a supportive, challenging, and very fun learning environment, which brought the entire group closer together. My personal yoga practice has improved so much and while I realize there's still so much more learn, I feel confident about being able to go out into the world of yoga and start sharing what I know. I highly recommend Kramas Yoga to anyone who is interested in learning more about yoga, deepening their own practice, connecting with others who share your passion, and/or who would like to develop the knowledge and skill set required to begin teaching.”
~Ashley Redjinski (YTT Graduate February 2019)
“Kramas Yoga was just an incredibly rewarding experience. Al and Jessica are knowledgeable, warm-hearted instructors who have a wealth of experience in the practice of yoga. My partner and I both went through Kramas Yoga (in two different cohorts) and we both came to the same conclusion: Al and Jess are nearly an ideal match for teacher trainings. These two seamlessly transition between serious instruction and one-on-one conversations. Beyond that, I think the primary reason I would recommend Kramas is that Al and Jess bring an authenticity to instruction. Bite the bullet and take the training! You will not regret it.”
~Quincy Guerrero (YTT Graduate February 2019)
“I am so happy I chose Al and Jessica to complete my 200RYT! Their combined knowledge and experience married with relentless compassion and support made this journey as smooth as possible. Kramas helped tailor every step of my training to fit my needs. Having the opportunity to hear from different yoga specialists from the Madison area was amazing. Thank you for holding space for me!”
~Melissa Moll (YTT Graduate February 2019)
"Al and Jessica Noche have made my teacher training experience so much more than I could have imagined. They have cultivate a wonderfully loving space for me and my peers to share, learn, and grow together. If you have ever thought about doing your 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training, I would strongly encourage you to consider this one!"
~Caitlin Warlick-Short (YTT graduate June 2018)
"Kramas had it all (for me). They had a substantial and well rounded course curriculum; their expert presenters were well qualified in their fields and enriched our experience. I learned more about yoga anatomy than I thought I could because of their offering of an online course that gave the materials in a variety of learning styles. They started you with asana intensives right off the bat, allowing the students to teach each other. Most importantly, this experience with Kramas was spiritually rewarding, teaching me how to bring my future students further down their path; body, mind and spirit. Thank you Kramas for some of the best 200 (+) hours of my life! Namaste"
~Bridgette Loving-Tarpey (YTT graduate June 2018)
"I've learned so much, not only about yoga, but about myself. I found who I am, who I want to be, and what path I want to take as I continue my journey through life. I've found a whole new community of friends that I carry in my heart every day. 200 hours is crazy short when you're surrounded with such great vibes and knowledge."
~Wendy Alighieri (YTT graduate June 2018)
"Kramas Yoga School has given so much to my personal practice and life. Just thinking on it right now makes me smile with joy inside. It has given me insight into the depth of what Yoga is, and why it can be so beneficial. Jessica and Al provide such a warm and loving environment to grow and learn. I would highly recommend Kramas Yoga School to just deepen your practice and/or to become an amazing Yoga Teacher some day."
~Jennifer Bradley (YTT graduate June 2018)
I just finished a 200-hour Teacher Training with Jess and Al of Kramas Yoga and still can't believe it's over. The wealth of knowledge and insight that Jess and Al shared with us during the training was invaluable. They are two passionate and caring individuals who worked so hard to make sure that we had a solid foundation on which we could then build our own practice. They encouraged us to explore the paths that spoke to us and supported us throughout our journey. Their training is perfect for anyone who wants to deepen their knowledge of yoga, whether or not they intend on teaching.
~Kelly Messori (YTT graduate June 2018)
"I completed my 200 hour teacher training with Kramas Yoga School in June 2018. Throughout the six months we worked together, Jessica and Al were consistently warm, encouraging, and knowledgeable as they guided us through the process of becoming yoga teachers. Not only did my practice and teaching skills improve over the course of the training, but I felt like I gained a very comprehensive view of yoga, from anatomy and sequencing to philosophy and beyond. The community they fostered was lovely as well--everyone was incredibly supportive and open."
