I couldn't be happier with my decision to receive instruction and training from Jess and the team at Direct Path! The experiences, lessons, and relationships were a beacon as we all navigated unforeseen, unexpected and, sometimes unimaginable changes. Take any opportunity to work with/engage this community- you won't be sorry!
I came to this school looking to find my voice. What I found was an Instructor who skillfully and compassionately guided me into my mind, body and soul. I am confident with my words and movement on my mat, but more importantly in my life.

I am so glad I decided to get my yoga teacher certification with Direct Path Institute. It was the most welcoming environment where I was able to grow tremendously. I gained so much knowledge about myself and about the world in addition to learning to become a yoga teacher. I am forever grateful for this experience and the teachers.

Studying at The Om Center (Direct Path Institute) was such a pleasure! I learned so much about teaching in a way that is safe, responsible, and receptive to others. I also loved connecting the physical practice to other aspects of yoga. 10/10 would recommend!

I could not have asked for more from my training from The Om Center (Direct Path Institute), I left feeling confident and ready to teach in a studio. The material was covered thoroughly to give a deep understanding of what we were learning and what we would need to take with us as we go on to use our certification in the world.

Yoga Teacher Training at The Om Center and Direct Path Institute absolutely exceeded my expectations. I am beyond happy to have spent the hours I have with Jess, Kristina, Sara, and more. I have learned well beyond a series of asanas and philosophical practices... I have developed a foundation for which I can carry happiness and comfort through the rest of my life and hopefully others. I strongly encourage anyone who has the capacity to complete YTT in CT to do so at Om. One of the best decisions I've made in my life!
Director Jessica Proulx went above and beyond to ensure we had a strong foundation in pranayama, asana, and philosophy. She and manager Kristina created a well-rounded, thought-provoking program that allows students to push their boundaries; while cultivating self-love and awareness. We were given a strong foundation in how to create a safe space and a safe practice for our future students. This program changed my life.
Jess was the best teacher I could have asked for. I was looking to dive deeper into yoga and learn about more than just the physical practice. We read the Gita and the Sutras and dove into Ayurveda, vayus, and doshas. I loved yoga before, but I love Yoga even more now and feel it in a way I never would have. Every step of the way she is there to guide you. Along with teaching postures and cues, she taught us ethics, teaching skills, and about physical safety, but most of all she cultivates a loving community that makes you want to strive to grow and learn and spread that love.
