"Yoga Teacher Training with Angelica was an amazing experience! Her enthusiasm and joy for yoga has been inspiring. Her generosity with her knowledge, experience and time have been invaluable throughout the training. Angelica's guidance on this part of my yoga journey has given me not only the knowledge, but also the confidence that I can pass on what I've learned to others." -Heather Fairman (Henderson, NV) Spring 2012
"I have been practicing yoga for a couple of years now and I have found Angelica to be one of the most authentic people I know. I have also been enrolled/registered and participating in the teacher training class she offers at her studio. I have participated in many training and development programs and I love going to Angelica's class. If you are considering taking teacher training take her class. If you are considering yoga or love yoga, take her class. I believe you will love the authentic, generous, committed and compassionate way about Angelica and benefit from being with her." -Paul Kotler (Henderson, NV) Summer 2012
"There are great balances and comprehensive invaluable lessons learned through the 200 hour Teacher Training course at Sin City Yoga. It has completely changed my awareness & consciousness of my body. It taught me a lot about my own resistance in my daily practice, to learn to work with it instead of against it. It has given me an opportunity to experience & focus on something I love. Bringing continuous health & happiness to me and the people around me. With a deeper understanding on asana and anatomy, this course has driven and inspired me to expand myself and share with others, at a more confident level, which I can grow from - a starting point as a yogi. Angelica's teaching in a round robin setting was an eye opener. Doing it in a circle, sharing with and learning from the beautiful teacher, and supportive classmates, had created a very good vibe and synergy among us students. I felt very much supported in the general energy throughout this course." -Angie Buck (Parump, NV) Summer 2012
"I first came to Teacher Training at Sin City Yoga so I could further my practice of yoga; what I learned was truly more than that. My practice has undeniably improved 10 fold, but my heart has mended. I was lost and Angelica, as well as everyone else at the studio, guided me to find my true self. I came looking for knowledge and what I found was a home. They say home is where your heart is. The friendships I've made, and the love I now have, I will take with me forever. Sin City Yoga is heart, love, passion, and transcendence. I haven't found a more perfect place to practice YOGA." -Kayla Duncan (Las Vegas, NV) Spring 2013
"I came to Sin City Yoga for teacher training with Angelica without ever attending any classes at her studio. I know it was a leap of faith, but after viewing her website I felt confident in the choice I made. After meeting Angelica and taking classes with her and her other teachers I never looked back. Sin City Studio studio embodies everything that is needed to keep yoga true to it's core. The studio has the tight knit family feel that most studios are missing. All of the teachers at the studio teach yoga with physical and spiritual aspects that challenge you and take you to a place you have never been before. Take the leap of faith and try at least one class. After you do, you'll never look back! You'll be changed forever!" -Ala Sciacca (Summerlin, NV) Spring 2013
"I took Angelica Govaert's 200 teacher training in May 2013. Upon completion I cannot tell you how happy I am to have had this experience. Truly life changing. I love this studio and it has my full support. I am very grateful to have met and learned from so many beautiful people. Definitely a downtown gem! Come for the love of yoga!" -Juliana Mayor (Las Vegas, NV) Spring 2013
"If you are thinking about participating in a yoga teacher training, I would highly recommend the Sin City Teacher Training with Angelica. For me, teacher training had been something I wanted to do for a really long time. I researched all programs in Las Vegas and finally decided on Sin City, which turned out to be the best choice I could have ever made. I have been practicing yoga on and off for years, but this experience helped immerse me far deeper into my practice than I imagined. Not only does Angelica have an outstanding love and knowledge of yoga, she is so much fun to be around. Throughout our journey I learned everything that is needed to become a well rounded yoga teacher, plus much more. I expected the physical part, but was pleasantly surprised by the spiritual growth and lifelong friendships that I gained. Thank you Angelica and Sin City Yoga, I feel so blessed! Namaste." -Jada Hunt (Las Vegas, NV) Spring 2013
