What Our Students Say

The breaking down of asanas, the in-depth discussion on the philosophy of yoga and the sharing on teaching methodology. Every discussion indeed showed Teacher Leona’s training and experience on these things. And I am happy to have chosen to train under Teacher Leona and Bodhi Yoga Center because the approach was holistic, not just focused on the physical practice and the business side of yoga. It was a rewarding, fulfilling and the best 50 days of my life because I came out a better person, I met new friends and I am now a certified yoga teacher.

Dorothy from Misamis Occidental

When I met Leona for my yoga class, I knew I found the right teacher. Yes, she may be young but she is an old yogi soul, someone who lives and breathes Yoga. Finally I am ready to be a teacher. Thank You Leona Buding, My Teacher, my Mentor, My Friend. You have helped me fulfill my dream. Your wisdom, knowledge, understanding, compassion, humanity and love is a Gift.

Melo from Pasig City

I came to learn how to be a Yoga Teacher. After 200 hours of training, I came out a more loving, more compassionate , more empowered human being. Leona is a super teacher, loving, kind, open-minded but very professional. Exactly what I’m looking for in a teacher. Kind-enough to recognize my strength, equally professional-enough to force me to work on my weaknesses. I learned here to have the confidence to design my own sequencing, proper body alignments and to have faith in myself to be able to do the asanas. I made a personal commitment to myself to practice more Yoga asanas, because this time I’m enjoying it.

More of What Our Students Say:

There are things that still intimidate me to move forward but it helps seeing my coach (Teacher Leona) being committed to what she does. The dedication and effort to teach even in the midst of pandemic is motivating. In addition, her way of teaching is not boring at all because of the jokes she makes which make it less tense for us students. When I think about it, I don’t want to doubt myself whether I can do this or not. I rather give my best and if there is anything I am lacking, I know that I can fix it with the help of my coach. The aid she’s given us is what I also want to give back to other people.

Sheila from Arizona, USA

Bodhi Yoga Center’s flexible and accommodating YTT course made it possible for me. I feel indebted to Leona for giving me this rare opportunity to fulfill a dream – a dream that took hard work and dedication. But with Leona’s gentle encouragement, support, understanding and kindness gave me enough motivation to push through. I had to reconnect with my intention and purpose, and my WHY. Being able to re-evaluate why I wanted to be a yoga teacher, strengthened my resolve to keep going.
