- Rose M., Yoga Alliance
Perfect course for me! Michelle and Team (Rachel and Sam) are amazing teachers. This experience changed my life and I am grateful to have been given this opportunity. This course will guide you to find the yogi within you. Not all yogis are the same, if you are prepared to find your golden Buddha please consider this teacher training.
- Nicole M., Yoga Alliance
Edge Yoga School provides a truly exceptional teacher training program. My experience was so much more than I expected, I believe, because of their team of teachers. Each of the teachers brought so much knowledge and experience to every class. We covered everything from yoga history and philosophy to the art of teaching, including breathing and meditation techniques, asanas and modifications from beginner to full expression - including modifications for special populations - anatomy and proper alignment. We definitely covered everything listed in the syllabus above and had plenty of hands on and practice teaching opportunities. Edge also offers its students flexibility in scheduling training times, make up classes, and retreats. The studio itself, both locations, is warm and inviting. I have to add that I am a personal trainer and have many years in group-exercise and workshop presentation. This was by far the most comprehensive training I have ever experienced. Yes, each teacher brought the educational material to the table, but, more than that, they brought genuine love and care for every student. Edge Yoga School and their team of teachers definitely walk the path of what it means to practice yoga on and off the mat. I am so grateful for the intellectual, physical and spiritual growth I received here. Namaste
- Kay M., Yoga Alliance
I loved the environment that was created for us students to learn and participate in. We had several interesting discussions that I never would have had in another setting, and I am grateful for the opportunity to have completed my 200 hour training with the Edge Yoga School.
- Rachel R., Yoga Alliance
Edge Yoga School taught so much more than just the "curriculum" and it made for a very rich learning experience.
- Darcy M., Yoga Alliance
It was a life changing experience overall.
- Olivia F., Yoga Alliance
Edge Yoga School provided what I was looking for and more in my YTT; In depth discussions, hands on experience of physical yoga practice, both individually, as a group and with our lead trainers. Assignments regarding the philosophy of yoga and how that reflects in our every day lives I found incredibly life changing! My soul, quite literally has been re-awakened; to my potential, a better understanding of my SELF and of those around me. I also found the diversity of lead trainers both enjoyable and program enhancing, to experience different perspectives yet with the same aim, to give the students a program equipped with all the tools necessary to teach an effective, safe and educated yoga class that enhances an individual or group both physically and mindfully and Edge Yoga School most certainly achieves that.
- Debi T., Yoga Alliance
Edge Yoga School provides a comprehensive yoga teacher education, in a caring, challenging, and fun environment. The curriculum is thorough, ensuring students get the training in key components of teaching they need (e.g. anatomy, asanas, practice teaching, planning classes, business of yoga, etc.), and sharing resources for building upon and maintaining our learning. The flexible schedule that Edge offers, enables it's students to complete their training in their own timing that fits their schedule.

I feel all of the above topics were covered extensively and if I needed the topic to be reviewed, Michelle/Owner would make sure to go over that topic again in an upcoming class or even.

Excellent school, great community environment. So many wonderful teachers to learn from.
- Stephanie E., Yoga Alliance
YTT at Edge yoga school has been an amazing journey for me to gain knowledge about the nuances of teaching yoga and to meet fellow yogis from different walks of life. The entire online experience is also seamless and enhanced the ability to attend classes wherever we may be. Overall, best use of my quarantine days !
- Janani D., Yoga Alliance
Edge Yoga School offers a solid, comprehensive program. I went to Edge Yoga School for my 200 hour YTT and would not have chosen to do my 300 hr any where else. My fellow teachers and students share their knowledge and passion which adds to the learning experience and creates a feeling of community. In this current time of Covid-19, on-line training is not only welcome, but the only way I could continue my education with EDGE. Even with this being an online experience, the feeling of camaraderie and community was strong. Learning our manual was enhanced through ongoing Zoom sessions, teach one another, classes, and group discussion. I hope the Yoga Alliance will continue to support this type of learning in the future. This is an opportunity to provide YTT for those who otherwise might not have the schedule that permits in person training. Established Schools, like Edge Yoga School, are able to provide the same well-rounded education online as in person. Thank you, Michelle Rae Sobi, and Edge Yoga School for holding space for me and this journey!
- Kay M., Yoga Alliance

Edge Yoga School worked for me because of their individualized approach. How I interpret and consume data might not be the same for others and Edge's programming allowed me to learn the material but focus on the points that were more aligned with my own style.
- Steffy S., Yoga Alliance
Such a wonderful school. I felt confident and ready to get out there and make my dreams a reality with the knowledge and experience to teach. I highly recommend Edge Yoga School to anyone looking to make their dreams of turning their passion to their profession.

The YTT from Edge Yoga was excellent! I've wanted to do my 200 hour for quite a while now but could never commit to the multiple weekends involved. The online option gave me the ability to go at my own pace and on my own hours. Michelle did a great job in providing the necessary content, the expectations and also the communication necessary to complete the course. I feel this course prepared me for teaching and also provided valuable information to further my practice...Thank you Michelle!

- Eve F., Yoga Alliance
Edge offers a great program with flexibility.
- Lauren C., Yoga Alliance
This was a great school , I loved the instructors and felt that they really prepared me for teaching.
- Brooke W., Yoga Alliance
The little gem in the heart of a large suburb provided me with a wonderful path during my 200 YTT. Although primarily under the tutelage of one primary instructor, each of the teachers I had an opportunity to work with, shared from their personal gifts and taught from their hearts. The way the training has been designed allows for a unique support system with exposure to many different approaches to the yogic philosophy. This approach allows you to take what you need, and grow from there. For me, it was a wonderful next step on my lifelong wellness journey.
- Mary Beth N., Yoga Alliance
I had an amazing and life changing journey during YTT at Edge!
- Kelsey B., Yoga Alliance
I think that Edge Yoga Schools intention to bring yoga to everyone and make it palpable was enacted and evident throughout my training. I was grateful for all the opportunity I was afforded directly through the school, but also in connection to the wider community. The yogic philosophy and books were and still are the most impactful piece to my training and what I’m most grateful to have had formalized classes on. I am slightly nervous about my eye for catching potential students in the body work/posture, but continue to consult my handy yoga anatomy book and believe this lack of confidence comes from COVID related setbacks to training, not at all the school itself.
- Muryem Q., Yoga Alliance
Michelle Rae Sobi embodies the yogic mindset and is a fantastic educator. The programming offered by Edge Yoga School is immersive and flexible. I couldn't have asked for a better experience training to become a yoga teacher. - Dana F., Yoga Alliance
Edge Yoga School offers a unique teacher training experience. The community at Edge is one that I hope to be a part of for time to come. I am so glad I stumbled upon this studio. - Haley S., Yoga Alliance
Teacher training at Edge Yoga School is a wonderful experience. Everyone is so welcoming and we all collaborate throughout to help each other grow and to teach one another. The owner, Michelle, is always there to answer any questions and is so helpful and supportive. She offers a judgement free zone to learn and to really help each yogi become the yoga teacher they were meant to be. There are also many additional courses that you can take to keep your education going and/or to help you move into a speciality. I can't say enough good things about Edge, the community, and what it offers to students. I have also been able to build my confidence at Edge throughout my journey so far and into my continuing studies there.
- Anna T., Yoga Alliance

I am currently in Edge Yoga School's well-rounded YTT program, strengthening my own personal practice and learning so much about how to share its healing benefits with others. I recommend this program for its incredible value, more flexibility than other programs, and high quality content.
- Anne S., Yelp
This may sound over-the-top, but I am serious when I say that Edge Yoga School changed my life! Michelle is such a loving, accepting soul and her generosity allowed me to pursue a dream that I didn't even know I had. I went through her YTT (Yoga Teacher Training) last year after my mom passed away, and the knowledge, teachings, weekly classes and the people (ohmygod the people!) transformed me into an entirely different person. I'm so grateful for Michelle and her YTT programs. Super-knowledgeable staff, beautiful teachers, diverse curriculum and an endless amount of support and acceptance. Since graduation, I have decided to pursue my 500-hour and Edge Yoga School will be the only place I go for this!
- Darcy M., Yelp
During the yoga teaching certificate program, I was able to connect with my teacher, Michelle, frequently, as I trained for Yoga Mat, Pilates Mat and Yoga/Pilates Fusion certifications. I was grateful for her input and enthusiasm. She is a great teacher with a strong yoga and pilates background, who continues to challenge herself, which I appreciate as a teacher and a student. Michelle teaches you to be open to continually challenging yourself. She respected my situation as mother of a toddler and being pregnant during the last part of my training. Her input on my filmed class segments was very helpful and I was able to apply it to my classes.
This program was great for studying at your own pace. And it was really affordable. As a pregnant mother with a toddler, I was able to successfully receive my certificates in an extended program that fit my busy schedule. With Michelle's encouragement and guidance, I am now prepared for the next step, teaching my own classes.
- Ashley O., Yelp
I have been going to Power Edge Yoga for 3 years and just began yoga teacher training. I LOVE it! It started off as something I needed for my personal practice/growth and it evolved quickly into something I want to share with everyone.
Edge Yoga School has a variety of teachers to guide you on your journey. You dig deep, it's a wonderful eye opening experience in getting to know yourself. There is a sense of community and family whether you are in a group class or in training. Wonderful quaint studio where you can make new friends, yoga and have fun.
- Nicole M., Yelp
I liked the opportunities to learn from both the instructors and my classmates. It was a safe space to provide feedback about our practice and teaching style. It also helped me find my style and brand, and helped me learn new things about myself and what I wanted to share with others in my practice.

Michelle and Kristyn have provided space for a dynamic yoga teacher training that encompasses the perfect balance between modern and traditional philosophies while safely transitioning students from an authentic learner and into a authentic teacher. - Raya F., Yoga Alliance
The community was so welcoming and knowledgeable. I loved the flexible hours and the opportunities for intensive training.
- Lisa L., Yoga Alliance
I had my first ever yoga teacher training class and loved the relaxing yet professional approach Michelle brings to her class. I am a total begginer to yoga and with my lack of experience I felt all of the information was taught in a way anyone with any experience level could comprehend and digest very easily. I highly recommend power edge yoga to anyone simply because of the deep knowledge and passion of yoga that is brought to the table for an incredible experience!
- Mike V., Google
The studio and it's owner Michelle embody the warm and encouraging environment that is needed to become a great fitness instructor. With flexible hours and great resources, taking any fitness instructor training program here will set you up for success.
- Rachel R., Google
I have always loved yoga and practiced for many years I knew I wanted to become an instructor but having a full time job I was always very discouraged to find a studio that could be flexible and understanding to my long work hours. When I started going to Power edge I fell in love with the studio, atmosphere, teachers, etc. I knew this studio was where I belonged. When Michelle said she was doing a teacher training I was so excited but worried I would run into the same problem I had in previous years. Michelle explained I could pick the hours we train and worked completely around my work hours. I cannot even begin to explain how much I learned in this process as well having an insturctor that is understanding to outside committments meant the world. She explains everything so well in an interactive and fun way. I highly recommend the teacher training if you have ever considered wanting to teach. I am so happy with my choice!
