In the first Masterclass, I experienced a little release by Chanting “RAM” & “OM”- I had tears in my eyes and cried. I honestly can’t remember, If I’ve ever had this during my practice. I think it was the feeling of pure gratitude to enter this training.

I am a yoga teacher and embarked on this journey with Travis and Lauren using the beginners mind. For me it is absolutely inspirational, informative, exciting and magical… I am honored to have come across Inner Dimension. It has changed my yoga teaching. Thank you!


I feel immensely honored to be part of this program. It has an incredibly authentic energy – looking forward to 200 hours of inspiration. Warm greetings to all those who share this transformative journey.

What a comprehensive program! I have been a member of IDM TV for the past 15 months…but wanted to deepen my practice and get a better understanding of the work. This is the best program to do that. I don’t intend to teach but to grow…Thank you Lauren and Travis for your generosity.


This has been a true blessing on all levels…I never thought getting certified online could be that emotional. The experience is so real, honest and genuine. There is so much effort put behind curating the content from setup, to sequence to music… it is just flawless.
