As a teacher training teacher: Phil you are one of the most wonderful teachers I've had the pleasure of learning from. Your lessons are very deep yet understandable. You kept them very real and relatable while teaching ancient yoga topics. When anyone had anything to add or questions about what you were teaching, you welcomed their input and had lovely feedback for them. I enjoyed all of the time spent learning from you in teacher training, and actually was left only wanting more. Thank you for being you!

Philippe is a transformational yoga teacher. I can attest that he has challenged me to be a better individual by enriching my yogic journey. His depth of understanding of philosophy, asana, and “off the mat” application of yoga  provides a sincerely authentic, unique, and enriching experience. As someone who has been privileged do my yoga teacher training as a pupil of Phil's, I feel that I have had the opportunity to learn from the best. In my preparation to teach yoga, he has imparted me with the skills and confidence to share the beautiful teachings of yoga. If anyone has a chance to take a class, train with, or simply meet Philippe, I strongly recommend it.

Phil is my favourite yoga teacher. He is able to motivate me to push myself every class; sometimes that means reminding me that I am stronger than I think and pushing myself to work harder. Other times, that means resting and focusing on finding my breath. I first took Phil’s 40 hour yin/yang training which really inspired me to go further with my practice. Based on the experience, I completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training with Phil and other teachers at Pure Yoga. The training was an incredible experience and I feel lucky to have learned so much. Whether Phil is teaching the philosophy behind yoga, or a challenging physical aspect of the practice like handstands, he always shows patience and compassion for all his students. I would unequivocally recommend Phil as a yoga teacher to new and practicing yogis!

Très cher Phil,

Je tenais à t’écrire ces mots à la suite du cours de yin que j’ai suivi avec toi en début de semaine. C'est incroyablement puissant ce que tu nous offres. Cela est venu me chercher au plus profond de moi-même. Ce qui rend ton yin aussi intense, pour moi, c’est la qualité des mots que tu choisis… Ces mots continuent de résonner en moi des heures et des heures après la pratique. La façon dont tu guides la méditation est exceptionnelle! Le partage de tes connaissances est fait de façon si généreuse que cela devient un cadeau précieux que tu nous offres.

Phil... je crois humblement que tu changes des vies. Merci infiniment… Mad love!

Having gone through a difficult trauma and a transition in my life, I was looking for a way to reconnect with myself and to evolve my yoga practice. Phil designed a well-balanced and comprehensive program that covered all aspects of yoga that I value—philosophy, meditation, anatomy—all within the context of a power yoga practice. He created an open and fun environment that soon became like a second home to me. I feel stronger, more knowledgeable, confident, lighter and compassionate after completing his program. Phil’s passion and dedication to supporting his students in their personal practice is inspiring. He poured his heart and soul into his program and I am grateful to practice under his guidance. This journey opened the doors to new beginnings in my life.

I am so blessed to receive the teachings of Philippe Landel. This gorgeous man is a living example of "walk your talk". He moves with the grace of a lion and teaches with wisdom and an open heart .
His humanity reaches some unknown corners of myself that were craving to be seen and experienced.

I am forever grateful and changed !

Thank you Philippe !

I wanted to let you know just how much I enjoyed the 30-hr Power Yoga Teacher Training with Phil Landel and his team at your yoga studio. As an instructor with my 200hrs Yoga Teacher Training, I was looking to supplement my knowledge and increase my confidence in power asana sequencing and teaching. I walked away with more tools than I expected, as we discussed topics such as asana adjustments, efficient cueing, the various systems/paths of yoga (i.e. raja, bhakti, jyana), biomechanics, the nervous systems, pranayama techniques, etc. Phil was able to modify his teachings to suit the varying needs of the students, while providing an open, non-judgement and caring ambience for open discussions. He was able to gage the level of experience of each student and challenge them accordingly, making them step out of their individual comfort zones, all while being supportive and encouraging. I have since incorporated my gained knowledge, skills and confidence into my classes, and now realize that my students will benefit from me being a more complete Power Yoga teacher!!

Sincerely, Thank you, Marc
