"I have been practicing yoga on and off for the past 17 yrs. experiencing the rich benefits yoga has to offer. Taking classes at Monroe Yoga, I really liked the organic feel of Ronen's approach and practice. When I saw he was offering a certification program to become a yoga instructor, I was very interested. Ronen is very knowledgeable in his vast cultural experience, including spiritually, physically and intellectually. His school was a perfect fit for me. Ronen has been a mentor to me and an excellent teacher. He helped me push through some physical and mental challenges during this course. It is a very big commitment for 8 months but the benefits are priceless!! Thank you Ronen for making this course an amazing experience for me."

-- Rachel O., Graduate YTT 2014.

"I have been practicing yoga for approximately 10 years when a friend suggested I consider taking the yoga instructors course at Monroe Yoga. Though initially intimidated by the thought of it, I accepted the invitation, and joined the 8 months long training. Obtaining my certification as a yoga instructor is probably one of the greatest accomplishments of my life to date. Ronen's wisdom and humility enables him to be a teacher that builds your confidence as you enhance your knowledge of the practice. He has allowed me to grow not only as a yoga instructor but also as a person. The course itself had not been a walk in the park – effort and commitment were required; but I am so happy I accepted this challenge in my life and saw it through to the end. I believe it will open new opportunities for me in my life."

-- Jeannie C., Graduate YTT 2014.

"If you want an honest and down-to-earth yoga teaching style, cut right through all the smoke and mirrors of all those other YTT programs and come to Monroe Yoga and Tai Chi. As a prospective student, I had been debating entering a YTT program for over three years, because I felt no other program was right for me. I hesitated to apply to other YTT schools in the NY metro area because of high program fees, difficult locations, and the apparent pretension and superficiality of many yoga instructors. Monroe Yoga and Tai Chi offered me a solution, with an affordable fee and flexible payment plan, as well as practical methodology to getting started in this booming profession. Also, Ronen helped me get through many of my fears with his practical, step by step approach and sound business acumen. Ronen is man who walks his talk not only in his business but in his spiritual practices as well. You'll never get anybody more real than Ronen nor any better deal in the NY metro than Monroe Yoga and Tai Chi."

-- Nancy D., Graduate YTT 2014.

"Ronen’s Yoga Instructors Training course at Monroe Yoga is a good fit for anyone who is looking for an intimate studio environment where the focus is on the well-being and benefit of the students of the future instructors."

-- Dennis, R., Graduate YTT 2012.
