I Found My Confidence + My Calling!
The Most Incredible Thing I Have Done For Myself
“The one thing I know for sure is that the Inspiring Spirit Program is the most incredible thing I have ever done for myself!
Before the program I was confused and at a crossroads in my life. I knew I was not happy but really was not sure how to change that.
Thanks to the Inspiring Spirit Program I learned to be introspective and listen to myself – to move beyond my comfort zone, open my heart and mind and allow myself to connect with the Divine.
I found the confidence to step my true calling and to no longer continue to live in outdated stories. I am now building a career that I am passionate and proud of. I am stronger in my relationships and most of all, I am more aligned and confident in myself!”

Major Shifts in My Life Thanks to This Program
“Whatever journey you are travelling through in life, I encourage you to take the very special Inspiring Spirit Yoga Teacher Training Program at Balanced Life Yoga. This program facilitated major shifts in my life.
Shasta’s teachings and the thousand year old yoga philosophy studied helped me develop the skills that I needed to quiet the mind, live in the present moment and be comfortable with the ‘uncomfortable.’
Before stepping into the Inspiring Spirit Yoga Teacher Training Program + Self Development Program, although I had the life that I always dreamed of, I still felt unhappy and anxious. I spent my days glorifying being ‘busy’ while on the inside was swamped with feelings of self-doubt and anxiety.
Now, not only have I become more confident in myself, I have developed confidence to teach Yoga and look forward to sharing my love for yoga with others.”
From Lost “Super Mom” to Purposeful + Happy Woman
“On the surface I was a supermom with a demanding career, and inside I was lost and miserable.
Overwhelmed, distracted and irritable, I was pushing away the people I cared about most.
The Inspiring Spirit Teacher Training program was a catalyst for change. It helped me quiet my mind and look inside myself. The Balanced Life Yoga teachers generously shared their unique gifts and wisdom as they held the space for me to learn about myself, purpose, body, and spiritual connections.
I now have the clarity to discern what is meaningful to me, and the confidence to release my attachment to things that do not align.
Both my work and personal relationships have improved as I am more authentic, compassionate and present in the moment. I know I am creating a purposeful life having made this investment in myself and starting my journey with Balanced Life Yoga.”

From Pushy to Feeling in the Groove
“Before the Inspiring Spirit Program, I was feeling imbalanced and confused about where I was going and what I wanted to do with my life. Now I feel not only clear with a new vision and the actions needed to make it happen, but I feel much less anxiety or pressure about it all. I can see that even my language has changed.
I use to try to “perfect” or “dominate” things and “make them happen” but now I feel much more fluid and less pushy as I paint the picture and align to what I really want in my life. I feel much more balanced and excited within.”
– Michael, Ajax, ON.
