"Yoga : to yoke or union, to bring together, from the sanskrit word Yuj. This is the first thing I wrote in my notebook on the first day of my Yoga teacher training. What I didn’t realize is that it was not just the definition to the practice of the asanas (poses) but also a link to learning breath work (pranayama), sequencing , sanskrit, history, and the philosophy of yoga. Sharon J. Hong is a wealth of knowledge, her way of teaching is interesting and fun with the right amount of balance so you don’t feel overwhelmed. She’s encouraging to everybody she teaches on and off the mat. The bringing together of a class of 10 students is not an easy task, but Sharon took the time to get to know each and everyone. The union that was created during our training turned out to be another unexpected definition to the word Yoga.   Thank you Ro and Bonnie for honoring your own light and sharing it with the entire community. Sakula Yoga studio is a peaceful place to practice, the atmosphere, teachers and students all blend together to create and sense of family.  I’m so happy to have walked through their doors over a year ago , not knowing that first step would lead me through Yoga Teacher Training".  Namaste Darlene - 2015

"YTT at Sakula was a beautiful experience. The curriculum offered a well-rounded education in the most important aspects of yoga, and throughout our studies we were encouraged to apply a yogic mentality to our whole lives. The program was well-paced to instill confidence in the teacher trainees and allowed us to attain the necessary knowledge to help share the healing practice of yoga with others. I loved being taught by a variety of teachers each bringing something special and personal to the class. The sincere care for our progress shown by Sharon, Ro and Bonnie, our mentors, and the guest teachers was remarkable and so appreciated.  Sakula feels like home thanks to the love and support of those running the program, as well as the truly wonderful students who shared the experience and grew together as a team. Thank you deeply for this experience". Love, Nettie - 2015

“The Yoga teacher training at Sakula Yoga Studio was a beautiful experience. Sharon is a dedicated teacher who graciously passed along her knowledge to us. She made class informative, spiritual, but also FUN! Throughout this program I felt completely supported by everyone from Sharon and my fellow classmates to the owners Ro & Bonnie, and all of the studio’s guest teachers. Not only has this training helped me to become more disciplined in my asana practice it has also enabled me to create a much deeper connection to Yoga as a way of life.

Testimonials from our Teacher Trainees 2014

"The program has been fun and I have learned a lot of things, both from a spiritual perspective and hands on asana knowledge. The studio is very supportive and friendly. Sharon is very easy to approach and my classmates were easy to get along with. 
I love all of the guest teachers and I wish that we could have had more guest teachers. It helped a lot in opening different perspective for us and learning different opinions and teaching styles. 
Sakula teachers and students have been really supportive, too! They were all very kind and generous accepting us into the classroom to help us to learn from them. Love this friendly atmosphere! :)"

"My teacher training experience at Sakula was so much more than I ever imagined it would be.  Each class was one I looked forward to.....from the topics covered; to the guest instructors, each with their own area of expertise; and the joy of learning with my fellow students.  Sharon J.H. was a very genuine, accepting and supportive instructor.  The warmth and support of the Sakula family provided a wonderful opportunity to grow spiritually, expand my knowledge in my personal practice, and find my own way to share yoga with others."
