Testimonials (from the Integrative Hatha Yoga Training 2015 in Dubai, UAE)
“Hosting Kreg Weiss in Dubai for the third time has exceeded my standards yet once again. From our initial smooth-as-always contact via email in proposing the idea of crafting a 100hr Hatha Yoga Training program for our UAE clients to constantly updating me with the construction of his manual and tailoring the program to meticulously meet our trainees level yet challenge them further in rich anatomy, Hatha Yoga sequencing, safety in adjustment, how to smartly use props for support and further, Kreg has taken in feedback and applied it to deliver a stellar training.
Throughout the 100hrs program, he’s sectioned each day to a wide scope of audience from corporates, athletes, injured clients to those craving an invigorating practice but away from the “vinyasa box”. He’s converted several Bikram / Vinyasa / Ashtanga / Hot Yoga devotees at this training to the world of Hatha Yoga – slower paced yet invigorating and delivering the true essence of what Yoga is and should be about. Less stress on the joints, body and mind and more on the powerful healing and slower pace while including excellent breathwork and meditation practices. Kreg’s generosity by offering a 1 year mentorship program for our students has encouraged students to chat with him and even launch their own business with his support and encouragement. As a facilitator running my business for over 5 years now, I always look forward to working with Kreg knowing he would deliver an exceptional program.” – Noura El-Imam, founder of Yogalates Bliss in Dubai www.yogalatesblissindubai.com
“Thank you for sharing your knowledge, for being so inspiring and graceful. I have noticed what an impact your teaching already had on me after I gave a class this evening. One of my students from India came up to me and just patted my shoulders after the class. He said well done and walked away with a big smile. My style has been transformed, that much is sure.” – Mia Mutic
“I would like to express my appreciation. I really, really enjoy your course! It’s a great opportunity to receive knowledge from you as a teacher. Your classes are extremely informative and educative! I would definitely attend your classes very often if you would live in Dubai! Thank you so much for finding the time and visit Dubai! I hope we will be seeing you more often here!” – Elena Shpaltakova
“Thanks so much for today and all the previous days. It really has been extremely enlightening! You are in a class of your own…AWESOMENESS! 🙂 You are truly a Yogi and iving example of your teachings. Very rare!” – Katrina Valente
“First of all I would like to thank you for these amazing breathtaking wow-days and all the knowledge you gave us. I found out about my body anatomy, how the bones, muscles and joints move under my skin and how they influence one another. Now I know how to bend forward safely for my spine and being “Bendy Wendy” is not always good. And not everyone can be as flexible as another. If one side of my body can do more than the other I should stop where the other side stops, without pushing my body. I can now explain how to safely move into Downward Dog, plank, dancing cat and how to specific muscles in these poses. I now know so much more! I love the mudras and pranayama and will integrate them in my daily practice. Your approach to teaching is so unique and beautiful!” – Daria
“I love anatomy and I think it’s fascinating to truly understand how our body works. One of the best things about developing and having a yoga practice is how it connects us with our physical body. I remember when I started practicing yoga, even though I had been active my whole life, I start to discover my body in a whole new way. My muscles were opening up and it was a sort of re-discovering of each muscle, how they supported each other, which ones were working in each pose, etc. I simply loved the way Kreg made all the poses look so simple…thank you from the bottom of my heart” – Nina Dubash
“Thank you again for such a fantastic course. You are a wonderful teacher and your knowledge and passion for your subject truly inspirational. In my next life, should I have one, I will be a yogi-physiotherapist and the anatomy-yoga encyclopedia that you are going to write will be my bible! If only I’d known 35 years ago that this is what I should have done…” – Anne van der Velden
“This was an unforgettable and new experience I have obtained from your training. From my perspective as a beginner, it was absolutely profound and very knowledgeable. You have a talent of teaching and delivering the information in a very comprehensive way that everyone would absorb and definitely apply in their practice.” – Julia
