Strong on the mat, Strong in Life!

It all starts

Shane Knox provided an incredible, thorough, and meaningful yoga teacher training experience at Sage Studio! Shane is a talented teacher not only as a yoga instructor, but also as a teacher of the eight limbs, physiology, engaging the class in discussion, and providing multiple teaching activities and karma yoga opportunities.


This wasn't an easy program by any means and we had to invest a lot of "out-of-class" time, but I looked forward to each and every class and the hours flew by. My practice improved dramatically and my understanding of the eight limbs led me on my own journey of Svadyaya in addition to the class readings.


If you're passionate about becoming a full fledged yogi/instructor and have the opportunity to be taught by Shane Knox, take it! It's incredibly powerful and rewarding.
