Teacher Training Classes
Teaching yoga is an honor and a privilege, a chance to share what you’ve learned, and a reflection of your practice. It is an opportunity to carry on a tradition thousands of years old, and be a part of a brother/sisterhood of individuals who choose to share their knowledge with others in the hope that it will bring about a positive change. It is an art form, and this artistry is reflected in a yoga teacher’s knowledge, personality, style, and even the aspect of teaching that they are most drawn to share. In this transformative program, we will offer an opportunity for you to deepen your personal practice and your understanding of yoga. We will offer a comprehensive road map through the history and philosophy of the yoga tradition. This will help to lay the foundation necessary for graduates of this program to continue on a path of growth and learning, allowing them to develop their own artistry as yoga teachers.
