This perfect score signifies that every participant who responded would highly recommend our program, highlighting the value and effectiveness of our training.

Transformation Through Yoga

In addition to NPS, we also assessed the transformative impact of our training.

This reflects the significant positive changes our training participants have experienced, affirming the transformative power of our program.
