meet the teachers: Personal shares from Teacher Training

Jane Viscolosi is an amazing communicator and motivator. She challenges her yoga teachers-in-training with a firm resolve, but also with sensitivity and compassion. She leaves nothing uncovered -- the physical practice and anatomy, the spiritual connection and a necessary understanding of the history of yoga. Jane is as dedicated as the most eager and devoted student and her work ethic, knowledge, wit, and passion have landed her exactly in the right place to offer her talent and gifts in service to others.    ~Donna

Reflections from 2022 Trainees

Jane and Nikki did a great job connecting with each and every student and customizing the program as we went along to fit all our needs. Going into the training, I didn’t realize how much personal development would be gained during the process. I really thought we would be learning poses and how to not hurt people! The experience with the instructors and the group was more than I could have imagined. I walked away with a sense of community and some new friends! It felt like a very safe and fun environment to learn and grow ❤️ ~Sandy R.

This training exceeded my expectations in both scope and practice. I feel fully prepared to be a Yoga Teacher and I am excited to further my knowledge based on the comprehensive content that was shared in the program. I had no idea how much there was to learn! Jane and Nikki were a great team and they did such a good job at getting me out of my comfort zone and with helping me to gain confidence in my ability to teach. We also had a great group of students that I am proud to have been able to join on this journey. I am grateful for this experience and incredibly happy to have found the Believe You Can 200HR Yoga Teacher Training program. ~Ann L.

It's your  turn, learn how to teach the yoga you love.

The Believe You Can Teacher Training Program was awesome, and it fully exceeded my expectations. Jane Viscolosi is not just an amazing Yoga Instructor, but she is truly a wise, kind, passionate Teacher of Teachers. Her expertly planned curriculum went far beyond the basics.

I learned so much about all aspects of yoga both in theory & in practice and also about myself and my spirit & soul. The excellent Believe You Can Program provided me with the knowledge & confidence to get out into the field and share with the world the beauty, light & love that yoga creates, and for that I will be forever grateful!

Not only does Jane have command of the poses but she has a deep understanding of what it takes to get into the pose. 

Jane's wealth of knowledge can only come from years of practice combined with years of teaching. 

This deep base of experience is why I chose Believe You Can teacher training. Jane has a unique, profound understanding that works very, very well when teaching future teachers. 

The lessons learned in this 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training have been invaluable.

As I thought about it this morning after taking your class last night...I just love your class!  I have since 2004 when you came in to teach in the cafeteria of my corporate office! Last night’s election night class was just what I needed. I really enjoy how your class always allows me the ability to just be a student on my own mat. Not worried about teaching yoga, or work, or family matters, to do lists, or anything.  My experience consistently is that  I literally can just drop out for 90 min and "be". 

Thank you so much for that! Jane, thank you for sharing your joy of yoga, passing that on to me, and inspiring me to pass along to others. It really is a ripple effect.

Your humble 2016 Graduate,

What Yoga Teachers and students are saying about jane

I had the privilege of doing my yoga teacher training with Jane Viscolosi last December 2014. There are too many words to describe Jane in this short testimonial but what immediately comes to mind is her joy, inner and outer beauty, wisdom, her nurturing side and most importantly her love for yoga. Jane's support during and after my training is truly priceless and when she speaks I stop everything to listen to her input. 

She teaches from her heart and is compassionate for those who have embarked on this journey called yoga. Her personality is what draws people to want to know her,  and her continued drive and passion to share the message of yoga is what makes them come back for more. It was an honor to train with Jane and I would highly recommend her training and yoga classes to everyone.

I completed my 200 hour teacher training with Jane in 2012. At the age of 40, I had been practicing yoga only a few short months before enrolling in the program. Jane's guidance and encouragement gave me the confidence I needed to embark on this gratifying and life affirming journey. Throughout the process, and every day since then, I have been grateful for her friendship, her teachings, and her mentoring. 

She shares her zest for yoga and connection to others so freely and generously that it's hard to not be inspired by her energy and full-on approach to life and love. From Jane, I learned to cultivate and refine the skills necessary to build a career as a yoga teacher. Of greater importance however, I learned to embody the practice of yoga on and off the mat. Jane is a true gift to me and so many others.

I was so happy to see you last week and need to make you a regular part of my yoga practice. Your class is so amazing. I have taken a lot of yoga classes in a lot of different states since our old days at Raffa and I have to say that I had forgotten how lovely it is to have an instructor with EXPERIENCE, passion, professionalism. You blew me away!!
