Genevieve

200-HR GRADUATE

“Bri is an amazing teacher. I was unsure at first if I would be learning much at all through an online teachers' training. After the first 'day', I knew I made the right decision to take up this 200hr-YTT. Her content is clear, concise and so easy to understand. Her style of practice is what I love most. I have gained so much more knowledge on yoga and lots more strength and flexibility in the 2 months I've taken to finish the YTT. At the moment, I am definitely doing what I love and loving what I do!”

Sylvia

200-HR GRADUATE

“I learnt so much from this school and not only that, I can easily say it is probably one of the best investments I have ever acquired. It not only helped me become a yoga teacher, it also helped me grow stronger in many ways (physically, mentally, spiritually, morally).”

Cassie

200-HR GRADUATE

“Such a good time with this training! It was really nice to have our private group to share questions and get answers. The live classes were a great way to connect. It’s nice to be able to review even after completion for a short while longer to take notes and relearn what I may have forgotten.”

Terra

200-HR GRADUATE

“I am so glad I found this training! I am not completely new to teaching but I didn’t have a 200hour so I researched for months to find the right one and this was perfect! I learned far more than I ever expected and I was able to make it work with my busy schedule. I also am thankful I have access to all of the information and live classes for a year. I don’t think I ever could’ve learned or retained so much information in a 2-3 week training.”

Seulki

200-HR GRADUATE

“I am so glad that I chose to take my RYT200 at Aligned Yoga with Bri. Before this course, I have been self-learning for nearly 2 years and had minor injuries with bad habits without noticing what was wrong. I've learned so many things throughout the course including how to practice safely.”

Jennifer

200-HR GRADUATE

"Absolutely loved my program with Aligned Yoga. The content was extremely thorough and everything was organized in a manner that was easy to follow. Bri was a joy to learn from every day and the opportunity to join live classes and conversations was excellent. I saw my practice evolve in more ways than I ever could have imagined and I loved everything about the experience."

Stephanie

200-HR GRADUATE

"The Aligned Yoga School has made the YTT training absolutely more accessible, the work they put in and how much the whole community encouraged and inspired me during the training is indescribable. The content is rich and teachers are available for questions and discussion and much more. I didn’t want to make this review all about Bri but she’s the reason why this was all possible and I’m very grateful that I am now also part of the community!"

Laura

200-HR GRADUATE

“I found this training to be so much more than I expected. I learnt so much and continue to learn with the online content. It was easy to navigate through and learn at my own pace. Briohny Smyth is an amazing, caring teacher and the training is so well put together. I highly recommend it and am very grateful for the experience.”

Marika

200-HR GRADUATE

“The online training with Aligned Yoga School was great. It really exceeded my expectations in the way the information was disseminated through the online platform and through the live sessions. I feel grateful to have had the opportunity to train with Bri and her team. The course really covered so much ground, but in a digestible way. I feel as though I have deepened my practice, learned so much and begun my teaching journey thanks to this training. Thank you!”

Jonathan

200-HR GRADUATE

“Aligned Yoga School was an excellent training, especially for an online YTT. It was self-paced and in an easy to absorb format that felt personal. The content and quality was excellent and the timing was appropriate. I would highly recommend it for any new teacher or even students just looking to deepen your practice.”

Kristen

200-HR GRADUATE

“Aligned's self-paced online program worked perfectly for my busy schedule as a full time lawyer. I could do classes any time and proceed through the program at my own pace. The quality of the instruction videos and classes was excellent. I was a practitioner for more than 10 years before doing a teacher training, and I learned so much! In addition to the teacher training curriculum, there is an active Facebook group (and Bri actually comments on posts all the time!) and (optional) live yoga classes and Q&As on a monthly basis. The live sessions are posted for every one who couldn't attend live to view on their own time. Now that I am done, I really miss it!”

Body

200-HR GRADUATE

"Briohny's online training is incredible! Her depth of teaching, knowledge and support made the program really invaluable to me. The curriculum is complete with so many different ways to learn, review and retain the information. I love that I can go back at any point to go deeper, and have access to Alo Moves for a year. The Live Q&As brought a global community of students and teachers together and I was thrilled to be learning live with her. I am so grateful to her and her program and the personal growth I experienced over the past 2 months. A personal and professional journey that is truly life changing."

Dominique

200-HR GRADUATE

“After completing my teacher training coursework, I just have to say how grateful I am for the experience of learning from a teacher that inspires my own yoga practice. The training was exceptionally helpful in learning proper alignment and technique for asana practice. I wasn’t expecting being taught different pranayama practices and kriyas, which was an added bonus to my studies. This training not only helped me grow as an instructor but as a practitioner I feel as though I have transformed.”

Selena

200-HR GRADUATE

“This course was thorough and well-balanced between the different aspects of yoga. The core theme of 'Aligned' ran through the entire course and has given me so many tools to apply to my teaching and help my students be empowered and safe in their yoga practice!”

Irene

200-HR GRADUATE

“Highly recommend Aligned Yoga to any aspiring yoga teacher. I researched many YTTs before choosing Aligned, and chose this one mainly because I love Bri’s teaching style and find her practice so inspiring. It was intense at times but learned so much and now feel ready to go out and teach!”

Mika

200-HR GRADUATE

“This is my first ever online school and it has been fantastic. I was so afraid of doing it online because I am Japanese, Mom of 4, and English is a second language to me. But the Online training is so detailed that it was very easy to understand for me and I was able to take it even though I was busy. This school was my best decision.Thank you for all your help.”

Claire

200-HR GRADUATE

“The 200HR TT I took this year online was brilliant. I thought not having an actual teacher there with me would make it harder to understand the asanas and how to teach them but it didn't! The videos Bri and Mathieu created were easy to follow and understand. They challenged my thinking and depth of knowledge. Comments I sent and read from other students were always replied to, live classes and Q&A's via Zoom made me feel I wasn't just doing this by myself, I was sharing this experience with so many others.”

Mariana

200-HR GRADUATE

“Bri has been an idol to me for a couple years now. Her teaching style and skills have always captivated me. When I got the opportunity to do my yoga training with her, I cried out of joy. I never thought I would be able to work with her. The training pushed and challenged me in the ways I needed. I have never been this aware of my body and my practice. The school was very informational and also very supportive, striving to have their students succeed. I honestly don’t think I could have gotten a better yoga education anywhere else. I am extremely happy with my education and I definitely look forward to taking other trainings with Aligned Yoga School.”

Justen

200-HR GRADUATE

“I had a great educational experience with Aligned Yoga School. The classes were easy to comprehend while providing challenging and immersive teacher training that motivated me to get up early every morning excited to do and learn more yoga. Briohny and Matthieu are extremely personable and knowledgeable and the online setup makes it easy to navigate and sponge up the information and talking points.”

Beibei

200-HR GRADUATE

“Aligned Yoga School was designed to be completely online, with a user-friendly platform, extremely educational content, and amazing and knowledgeable educators who created this school with the yoga teacher trainee in mind. I was pleasantly surprised with this yoga teacher training course and would definitely recommend it to anyone.”

Chiara

200-HR GRADUATE

“I highly recommend this teacher training to anyone willing to deepen their knowledge of the anatomy and mechanics of yoga. It's so well done, with very explanatory videos, the live sessions and live Q&As; it really left me with no further doubts or questions. It's been a transformative journey within myself: Bri gave very simple yet profound insights that helped to unlock new ways of self discovery. Last but not least, I really enjoyed the classes with Mathieu that deepened my practice of pranayama and mantra chanting, I really loved his enthusiasm!”

Shannon

200-HR GRADUATE

"I really loved my experience with Aligned Yoga School. Briohny and Matthieu were incredible, and I learned so much in the past few months of my yoga training. The online training was also perfect for my schedule as I am also a professional musician, and wouldn't normally have the time to go to a yoga teacher training in a different country for a month. Really loved my training, thank you!"

Jill

200-HR GRADUATE

“The course structure is excellent and easy to navigate. The teaching style is excellent, thorough and distinct. I really enjoyed the training and I feel so relieved and grateful that I chose the right course for me. I cannot wait to participate in further trainings (hopefully in person) with both Briohny and Matthieu”

Jelena

200-HR GRADUATE

“Bri, Mathieu and the whole Aligned Yoga Team did an outstanding job and created a fantastic platform and school where not only was there a handful of information regarding physical exercise and learning but also a place where everyone grows as a person and a soul. Even though it was all online, I felt like I was somewhere else. They managed to convey virtually in a special and realistic way. Another fantastic side of this school is that they gave us access to everything for the whole year so that we have the opportunity to go back and repeat what we may have missed or to establish knowledge. Thank you all again! Namaste”

Karen

200-HR GRADUATE

“Choosing Aligned Yoga School was the best decision I made. Extremely knowledgeable and always there when I had a question. Explained the process, poses, breathing, asanas perfect for all to understand.”

Elise

300-HR GRADUATE

“The training is extremely complete and I would recommend it to anybody! The fact that you can take it at your own pace and that you can also participate in all the amazing and informative live zoom calls is an outstanding opportunity. Briohny, Mathieu and the Aligned yoga team are so knowledgeable, amazing teachers. The content, the video and the sound are of a very professional and excellent quality. It was a pleasure and an honour to be able to train with such talented yogipreneurs and teachers. I feel I've learned so much from this training and got to understand better my asanas and how important good cueing is. I am very grateful for these teachers, the team and the opportunity of being able to learn more via Online training.”

Josephine

300-HR GRADUATE

“Bri and the team at Yoga Aligned have really transformed me both as a teacher and a student. From the philosophy of yoga, to the precision cueing and anatomy studies of the asanas to the business of yoga in this digital world that we live in, the depth of knowledge that I gained was worth every investment into this training. I particularly enjoyed the fact that, at the time I did the training, it was completely online and it gave me the flexibility to do it when I could. This was one of the reasons for me being able to complete the training, which I otherwise wouldn't have been able to because I'm a migraine sufferer and a mum - meaning it's very challenging for me to show up to set times for an intensive training. The content was structured in a way that could make self-paced study and training very easy. The team was always helpful and ready to respond, not to mention you get to be a part of an amazing community to learn from and support each other. Grateful for this opportunity to graduate from this school and highly recommend it to everyone. May Aligned Yoga continue to spread love and light.”

Barbara

300-HR GRADUATE

“It has been an amazing journey to be on the 300 hours TT with Aligned Yoga School. Bri and all the teachers in this training have so much knowledge and incredible skills in making all the teachings clear and digestible for all levels of students. The online material is super well structured and I plan to revisit this over and over for the next months. This training proves that online training can be even better than in person training, I have been definitely grown beyond my expectations as a teacher with this Training and I'll be forever thankful for choosing and completing it”

Bayli

300-HR GRADUATE

“The 300 hour training took my knowledge to the next level anatomically and spiritually. I found each video useful and full of relevant information. My personal practice grew a tremendous amount and my understanding of how to engage different parts of the body to keep poses safe and strong.”

Clemence

300-HR GRADUATE

“I've grown so much during this training! I'm so grateful I had the opportunity to learn from Briohny Smyth, her ability and generosity to share her knowledge is inspiring. I also loved following Mathieu Boldron's teaching on philosophy and mind practices. I was able to broaden my knowledge and practice and feel my teaching has been brought up to a higher level.”
