Maria Toso is a fantastic teacher. Her balanced viewpoint ensures that any student of any background will feel welcome and appreciated for who they are and what they bring to the world. Maria is an incredibly accomplished yogi as well, and has a way of breaking down poses and helping students find their own cues that allows them to find their own inner instructor. - Meghan Hatalla, Teacher Training graduate, 2016
I chose to complete my training at SPC as I was already enrolled as a student in the personal training program. I had heard from a couple of fellow classmates who had gone through the training that the instructor was not effective in preparing students for real-world teaching. I decided to stick with my registration despite this, determined to make the most of my experience. Luckily for me, the school hired a new instructor for my term (she will continue on as the lead instructor going forward). I cannot say enough good things about Maria Toso. She had us up in front of the class on our very first day and every day going forward, and truly prepared us for being in front of people and teaching a class. Our final was teaching a one-hour public class, so we have experience going forward of teaching people in a class setting other than our classmates. She helped me experience and understand yoga on a very deep level, and left me with no doubt I was on the correct path. I feel she taught me not only how to be a good teacher, but also to be a better person in my own life. As long as Maria remains in charge, I would highly recommend her teacher training at SPC to anyone looking to complete a sound, fulfilling training.  - Jenna Staloch, Teacher Training Graduate, 2015
Maria is a wonderful teacher. Her in depth knowledge in teaching asana is great, but I really benefitted from her knowledge in meditation and somatics. I believe her teaching far exceeds what is offered in those areas at the 200 hour level, elsewhere.   - Lisa Ophoven, Teacher Training Graduate, 2017
