I am so grateful for the NESTA certification programs. I completed the Sport Yoga program and started my own business two weeks later. The program is extremely well designed. It effectively combines written text along with a series of videos, which enable the student to thoroughly grasp each concept. I truly appreciated the accessibility to Dr. John Spencer Ellis and his staff. They are available to answer all questions, and encourage you to achieve your goals. There is absolutely no other certification program like it.
After completing the program, I felt 100% confident in my ability to pass along my knowledge to my students. As I mentioned earlier, I now have my own business in South Orange County, and I absolutely love what I do. Helping people attain their fitness goals and making a living doing it is a dream come true. I would encourage any fitness enthusiast to complete this program! Thanks so much NESTA!
