"Apprenticing with Abby is a unique yoga teacher training opportunity because of the emphasis upon genuine connection between mentor and student. The process of learning is a conversation, never stagnant, always dynamic and engaging. Abby constantly inspires exploration of body, mind and spirit - not merely through Asana (physical practice), but through hands-on assists, mantra, pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation. The introspection and exploration doesn’t end on the mat; through dharma talks and supplementary readings the student is encouraged to take their learnings to support the challenges of everyday life and find balance and “magic in the moments.” I was personally able to develop and strengthen my sadhana (daily spiritual ritual) through borrowing various books from the studio and incorporating bits and pieces from different classes.

Abby often refers to the training as an unfolding, which I believe is apt. Mentees are encouraged to participate in or assist as many classes at the studio, and check in with Abby before and after each session to ask questions. Understanding gradually emerges of effective ways to lead a balanced class with gentleness, reverence and clarity. Mentees are given many opportunities to try their hand at stepping into the hot seat and leading sun salutations and other traditional sequences.

If you are looking for a training experience that will be fulfilling, loving, personal, intense and supportive, I strongly encourage you to consider Hamptons Yoga Healing Arts. The connections I have made with Abby, Skip and Chai I will hold close to my heart forever. ~Ginger Vogel

“This training was informative and provided a plethora of information on the foundation of yoga history, lineage, asana practice, body and mind. I feel as if my practice, understanding and love for yoga has grown tremendously.” “This training helped my practice personally and gave me a much deeper understanding of yoga that I can communicate to my students. I felt motivated and really prepared and excited to teach my first class!"
