“Milldale Farm Center for Wellness, Vermont Be True Yoga and Grateful Yoga’s collaboration in bringing the 2019 Summer Intensive YTT is the most beautiful and soul shaking training. Being disconnected from media in the sacred lands of Milldale Farm; just down the road from a quiet lake, hiking trails and fields of open space is truly healing to the soul. Not only will you learn about yoga in the renovated barn turned wellness center, but this is the perfect safe space to practice living yoga. These lands truly feel like a big hug! Near the end of the Grateful Yoga Intensive YTT you will also have the opportunity to be apart of a very large mission by being a volunteer karma yogi at the Vermont Be True Yoga Festival right here at Milldale Farm Center for Wellness. VTBT Yoga Fest provides you with the opportunity to attend classes and to find other areas of wellness that speak to your soul , plus you are supporting the mission of making yoga, mental health services and other holistic wellness practices available to all beings; especially those in need and under privileged. This Grateful Yoga Intensive YTT will leave you feeling full, expanded, with deep long lasting friendship, safe, inspired, and empowered to go into the world with a new lens and ready to live your truth. You are worthy! “ -Kyla Suarez, Grateful YTT Graduate and Co-Founder of VTBT Yoga Fest

“I am a 500 hr graduate of Grateful Yoga, and my experience there continues to play an important role in my life every single day.  I am so grateful for this studio, and that I decided to invest this time and money into myself. Joining this yoga teacher training has helped enable me to take care of my body, mind, and spirit so that I can go out and do good work!

I have also participated in both years of the Vermont Be True Yoga Festival, held at the gorgeous Milldale Farm Center for Wellness in Fairlee, VT. This festival, this healing center, and the wonderful folks who make it happen have so much heart! I've already marked my calendar for the 2019 festival, and wouldn't miss it for anything.

To combine Grateful Yoga's teacher training program with the Milldale Farm Center for Wellness is a no-brainer. The two entities will magnify the greatness of one another, and everyone, especially those enrolled in the training, will benefit greatly. This is a very special opportunity, and I highly recommend you register! -Anika Klem, Grateful YTT Graduate
