Sequoia’s yogic journey began with the very disciplined practice of the Iyengar tradition. After years of practicing the Iyengar lineage, she cultivated her own personal practice and discipline, which organically transformed her asana practice into a mixture of the Ashtanga and Hatha schools. Now, she teaches the traditional practice of Hatha yoga incorporating space for inner awareness and witnessing, which allows one to deepen inner connection beyond the physical body.

"Learned more than I expected"
I booked this training because of it's description. It seemed to me getting more out of it as of other teacher trainings. And it was a great decision! I learned so much more than just asanas. I learned for life! Sequoia and her team are great teachers and also great supporter all the time. The food was good and the staff of the hotel did everything to make our stay perfect. The place near Ubud is a perfect place to do a Yoga Teacher Training! All in all I would do it again. I highly recommend to learn with Sequoia and her team!

"The best yoga teacher training around!"
Sequoia is an amazing woman and teacher. Her two assistant teachers were also terrific! I couldn't have had a better education. The live music was a big bonus but everything was very well planned and we learned so much more than I had thought possible! I'm truly grateful and feel very confident as I am going out there being a teacher!

I am Feeling Soul Good! Looking back at the month I spent here I had no clue what I was in for. I was just hoping to be certified to teach yoga. Sequoia is a Goddess, she and the team was extremely loving, supportive and knowledgeable. I have learnt so much not only about Yoga but also about myself then I have ever learnt in my entire life. I would definitely recommend this course too everyone as a once in a lifetime opportunity for change. I can not wait for the next one.

Feeling Soul Good was an amazing experience! Way over my expectations. I had no idea I was going to learn so much about no only yoga and the fundamentals but also about myself. I am truly grateful for sequoia and her team, Pablo and Shir, they all were very committed, knowledgeable and supportive. Thank you for the bottom of my heart.

Student of Feeling Soul Good teacher training, Bali, Indonesia 2016. As I approach the one year anniversary of when I completed my yoga teacher training with Feeling Soul Good, I am thinking a lot about all of the ways it has positively impacted my life both daily and also on a very deep level. Feeling Soul Good provided me with a well-rounded understanding of yogic principles, and how we can apply these in our daily lives. Prior to completing this training, I was looking for a “quick fix” to happiness. I thought to myself if I could just do “x, y, and z,” then I can be happy and coast through the rest of my life in blissful unawareness. But that’s not how life works. “Sthira-sukham asanam,” roughly translated as finding the balance of “effortless effort in our postures,” is one of the yoga sutras by Patanjali that our teacher, Stephan, often quoted in training. Life is a balance: a balance of discipline and letting go, a balance of day and night, of darkness and light, of feminine and masculine. Yoga means “union,” and teaches us to bring balance into all areas of our lives, through the practices of the asanas (yoga postures) but also through the other yogic principles. Yoga has transformed my relationship with myself, with my friends and family, and with nature. I have learned to integrate myself more in my physical environment, to connect with nature in order to connect to my true self. My relationship with food has transformed, and I am now able to eat more with mindfulness and appreciation of food, rather than being disconnected from the substance that provides me with life and energy. I could go on and on, but the bottom line is this: yoga has transformed my life for the better in every way. Even if you are not planning on teaching yoga yourself, Feeling Soul Good will provide you with the tools you need to live a happier, more fulfilling life. Sequoia spent most of her adult life studying yoga in India, and truly lives what she teaches. She is passionate and very knowledgeable, and passes her teachings on in ways that are easy to digest. The teachers that Sequoia had co-teaching with us at our training in Bali were equally knowledgeable and passionate, and the three teachers’ styles and backgrounds complemented and balanced each other out very well. I would absolutely train with Feeling Soul Good again, and I would highly recommend this teacher training for anyone who is looking to connect deeper with him - or herself and with the world around us.
