Student Testimonials

“In the transformative journey of my recent yoga teacher training, led by the incredible duo of Joleen and Steve, I found more than just a certification – I discovered a profound experience that transcends the realms of conventional learning. Their wealth of knowledge, coupled with unwavering professionalism, created an environment where wisdom flowed endlessly.

What set this training apart was the emphasis on daily teaching, ensuring that each lesson learned was immediately applied, solidifying our understanding. This training not only equipped me with the theoretical foundation essential for teaching yoga but also instilled a newfound confidence in my abilities. The intimacy of the class, limited to just nine students, cultivated a safe space where we could learn, share, and grow together. This unique setting fostered a sense of camaraderie, making the learning process not just informative, but also deeply enriching on a personal level.

I am forever thankful for this opportunity, for it has not only honed my teaching skills but also transformed me holistically. With newfound confidence, I am ready to embark on my teaching journey, inspired by the wisdom and grace of Joleen and Steve. If you seek a yoga teacher training that goes beyond the ordinary, where learning is intimate, and growth is boundless, this training is the beacon guiding your path toward becoming a yoga teacher.”

“This teacher training was more than I could have ever imagined. Steve and Joleen are not only incredibly knowledgable, but extraordinarily kind, caring, and compassionate. You can truly feel the passion they both share of yoga and teaching. Seriously, I cannot imagine being in better hands for any level of teacher training, whether it is your 200hr or 300hr! The discussions and lectures held were not only informative, but stimulating and entertaining. The daily practices were absolutely beautiful as well. I cannot rave about this school enough!”

“My partner and I had talked about doing our yoga teacher training for a long time. We both had done yoga on and off for about 8 years but there was something really drawing us in to learn more and immerse ourselves into a teacher training. A yearning to dedicate ourselves to something deep within us. We started looking to go to India or Bali but couldn’t find anything that fit for us or felt right. Eventually, upon further research, we came upon Asia Pacific Yoga and immediately we were feeling drawn towards their program.

The small class size and one-on-one setting was a huge win to find because that’s exactly what I was looking for. Something intimate, a place I could really learn in depth and not be within a room of 50-100 people. But I wanted to learn more about Steve and Joleen so I looked online at their profiles and watched their info videos to learn more about them. I also asked to see the syllabus of the program and they were the only teachers up to this point that sent a detailed syllabus and discussed it with me in depth! It was really amazing to see that before even signing up they were open to discussing how they structured the program and happily answer my millions of questions. Their humbled and very calm nature was evident and really shined through across the inter webs so I knew this was who I wanted for teachers.

We were travelling in Indonesia when we signed up and New Zealand was coming up soon on our destination list. When we arrived, Steve and Joleen picked us up in Auckland in their car even though the training was in Piha! As we walked towards them, they were waving at us from across the road with huge smiles and open arms for a big hug. It really felt like meeting friends we hadn’t seen in a long time.

Honestly the entire training felt like this. Our friends coming over everyday to teach us new, detailed information and ready to answer every question. Everyday I soaked in just enough information for my brain’s capacity with room for joy and laughter. Their authenticity is apparent and they have a lot of incredible knowledge and experience to share. Steve and Joleen teach and live every moment with their hearts. I had never had teacher’s that taught and honestly lived what they taught. They embody yoga in a way that’s unique from the mainstream. It’s going on a journey to the truth of what yoga is and that leads to learning more about everything - including yourself.
