"A+! Outstanding! Your language is exceptional and adds so much richness, depth and learning to our experience so students and practitioners. Your wisdom is impressive and your knowledge and competence are deep and broad. You totally 'get' yin, which is refreshing and in my experience, somewhat rare. This training is exactly what I've been looking for for years! You do a masterful job creating and holding safe space for learning and experience. Your authority is gentle and warm. Yous aw the best in every practitioner and encouraged that in each of us. Thank you, Kali. "- Practitioner of Kali Durga Yoga’s Yin & Restorative YTT Sedona with 2018

"I found the definition of Equanimity and the Yin Philosophy to be in perfect alignment. As I have learned Yin asks the body to gently hold in a pose for an elongated amount of time so that there is a path carved for the mind and body to find equanimity; therefore bringing deeper awareness, unlocking the body's meridians and thus igniting the mind, body, spirit connection for a transformational and empowered healing process!" - Practitioner of Kali Durga Yoga’s Yin & Restorative YTT Peru 2017
