200-Hour Teacher Training Inquiry


“The White Lotus Teacher Training Program was life-changing. It was a comprehensive program that covered anatomy, asana, breathing, meditation, history & philosophy, teaching methodology and so much more! I fell even more in love with yoga, but more importantly, I learned to love myself. I graduated feeling confident, inspired, renewed and passionate. The program director, Peggy, is absolute magic. She is the true embodiment of yoga. She has a way of getting people into that space where they can connect with their true selves and access that inner light. I feel so fortunate to have studied under her and look forward to a long career of helping others on their journey of self-love and acceptance through yoga.”

Kim Stansbury

“White Lotus Yoga is a great studio to get trained, Peggy is wonderful in her teaching and training various teaching techniques, her knowledge in Yoga practices is unique and super. She brings a sense of calm and peace and once in her class, we become so immersive that time flies at the speed of light without our awareness. White Lotus training brings awareness how much we are obsessed externally and makes us look who we are inside and focus on our true inner self, self-love and how to make our mind enter into one point focus by dismantling external obsessions. We have made deep dive into theory of Patanjali’s’ Yoga Sutras and how to apply them to self. To state a few, I have loved the various breathing techniques taught by Peggy, and anatomy by Taylor was so revealing and bared how sneaky is stress to our body and mind and how important is active movement and non-passive breathing in our life even if we are not practicing asanas. I do not have enough words to emphasize how much I enjoyed the studio, various teachers’ knowledge and experience. This training is not just limited to become a teacher but makes you superior peace-loving citizen of the world radiating love in all directions.”

-Vijay Gandham

“The training program through White Lotus takes the approach that before we can teach others, we must fully develop our own practice. I walked away from the program knowing everything I needed to begin teaching, but I also walked away from the program with a new sense of self-love and inner guidance. The program is transforming not only on an educational level but also on a personal level. My training took place during COVID, and the studio took every precaution to make sure that we were safe, that everyone could participate, and that we could continue our learning online. Although the pandemic made the training unconventional, I don’t feel like I missed out on anything. I would highly recommend this program.”

– Kirsten Wild

“If you’re trying to let your bright light shine, White Lotus’s YTT is perfect. It is the most amazing experience. You’ll learn more about yourself than you ever thought possible. Peggy doesn’t just teach you how to create a great class, and the principles and science of yoga, she teaches you how to be a great teacher through self-love. This is something you CANNOT pass up. Also Taylor, who does the anatomy portion of the training, is amazing. She makes it fun, interactive, easy to understand, and shows you exactly how to apply it to your classes. She is a wealth of knowledge and beautiful energy. This YTT was such a life-changing experience. I strongly recommend it for anyone looking to deepen their practice or yearning to teach.”

– Kaila Dukicin

“Not only did teacher training with White Lotus transform the way I approach my yoga practice, but it gave me important insight about how to walk through each day with kindness and balance. Peggy really put her heart into creating a program that met each student with their unique backgrounds, and gave us the tools to explore and grow in our practice with the message of ‘self-love’ as the cornerstone of the program. The studio is beautiful, the teachers assisting with the program are extremely knowledgeable and patient, and in my group, the students drawn to the program were committed to helping each other on and off the mat. I am so grateful I found White Lotus for my 200-hour certification, and would highly recommend this program for students of any level ready to commit to the practice of finding peace for themselves and others.”

– Shelby Wilkerson

“The White Lotus Yoga Teacher Training Program was fantastic.  Peggy’s focus on self-love as a cornerstone of being a good yoga teacher was perfect for me and truly made my experience transformative.  She brought her passion for yoga to the class every day, and it was contagious.  By the time the class was over, I had learned all the mechanical aspects of creating and running a wide variety of yoga classes; and throughout the entire process, I grew physically, mentally, and spiritually.  Peggy’s energy and her knowledge of the science and principles of yoga were incredible.  I highly recommend this training for anyone wanting to be an instructor…or even to get a deep understanding of yoga for personal use.” 

– Kat Adams

“A very rewarding experience, I had no idea what this was going to mean to me. Positive teacher Peggy gave me encouragement along the way throughout the training as did all the teachers at White Lotus. Best experience I’ve had in a long time. Thank you with all my heart to all at White Lotus teachers who gave me such a drive. All so magical. I have learned so much on this journey. This practice has taught me to be a better person,balanced, and calmer. I want to share and teach my experiences with others.” – Shari Wilk

“Teacher Training was the most important experience of my life to date. The White Lotus program teaches you asanas, alignment, anatomy and Yoga philosophy, etc. but also awareness of self and of the body. Through this awareness you learn compassion for self, and it is from this place of unconditional love that you can be a guide for others and teach them how to get in touch with their higher-self through the practice of yoga. It is a transformational experience that will bring balance to your world.”  – Megan Motoligin
