I just finished my YTT 200 with NASYS and wow, what an amazing experience it was! Brett, Siri, Shirley and Naresh are knowledgeable teachers and beautiful humans, each offering a unique and valuable perspective. I feel like I’ve been given such a solid foundation as I step into teaching yoga, and there’s been so much love and support each step along the way. I have learned and grown so much through this program and I can’t recommend it highly enough! Angela
“Even if you have no intention of becoming a Meditation Teacher, if you are an experienced meditator, I would suggest taking this training. It has refreshed and renewed my practice. Brett is a knowledgeable meditation practitioner. Also, his ability to create a space of compassionate interconnectedness for learning is one of his greatest gifts. Both he and Siri taught me things beyond what was on the curriculum. Highly recommended.” MW
"An amazing class taught by two of the most beautiful people!!! Thank you Brett and Siri for sharing your compassion with us. And a big thank you to Joy for a wonderful facility."
"When I reflect back on the last fifteen days I have an overwhelming sense of gratitude. I'm grateful for Siri and her gentle, compassionate soul, for Brett and the wealth of anatomical knowledge he has gifted to me, for Shirley and her beautiful spirit, and Naresh for his experience and wisdom that is unmeasured. Together these four have given me the knowledge and confidence to be a successful teacher." Lacey
Hi Siri, Brett, Naresh & Shirley,
Thank you for your guidance. It has been an amazing learning journey for me.
Brett - you have made anatomy so much more interesting for me unlike the previous courses that I have taken and everything just makes sense now. Together with Siri and both of your extensive knowledge in health science and meditation cum mindfulness, this training has exposed me to an area of interest that I would like to explore further. Naresh, on the other hand, has invoked my deeper connection to the yoga philosophy and asanas. I hope to adhere to the Yamas and Niyamas at the best that I could in my life. Of course, it is always so nice to have our ever so gentle Shirley in the class. IL
I procrastinated for some time before finally committing to the intensive training session. It was definitely intense at times with long days and loads of information, but our group bonded very quickly and we were there as support and resources for each other. In the end, we all learned very well from the 4 kind and skilled instructors. I highly recommend this course and the location in Kelowna. BF

"The teachers were all very knowledgeable and kind. They created a warm, safe environment where I was able to learn & grow. It was a truly amazing experience." DJ
"The YTT was exceptional! It far exceeded my expectations. Brett, Siri, Naresh & Shirley all brought their wisdom, knowledge and best of all, a sense of humor to every lesson. I appreciated the detail on alignment to perform yoga safely. I feel I learned an incredible amount of information and was supported throughout it all. M.D.
"YTT Summer Intensive 2017: Such an amazing experience! We were all strangers on Day 1 and by Day 15, so many great friendships had formed. Guiding us all through this life changing journey were four wonderful teachers. I would highly recommend this program. Brett and Siri's expertise in all things anatomy was so helpful and truly remarkable. The journey through yoga philosophy and the asanas with Shirley and Naresh was second to none. Thank you to the four of you for your knowledge, kindness, patience, and compassion. Namaste." Karen S.
"Doing the YTT program at Ekahi was an incredible experience. The instructors (Naresh, Shirley, Brett and Siri) were incredibly supportive and knowledgeable. The way they broke down the poses and linked it with anatomy helped me understand why some many poses look so different for everyone. Even though I come from a strong anatomy and physiology background, the information Brett & Siri provided about the joints was unbelievable. I also cannot say enough good things about Naresh and Shirley. They truly know when to push you and when yo give you space. They embody the true yogic principles at the core, and created an incredibly safe space for all of us to flourish. I wouldn't trade this experience for anything." Dani
"The YTT has been a ride to say the least. It has been intense and challenging, both physically and emotionally but Brett, Siri, Naresh, and Shirley have been supportive, nurturing, and encouraging. They have all ensured that we have been eased when we've been nervous, guided us when we've been unsure and done their utmost to prepare us to engage in the world of teaching yoga." Aurora
