Over a relatively short time, you’ll emerge with the practical skills and confidence to launch your yoga teaching career.
“I did not expect such a depth of content or practice, which I am finding beneficial from a personal level as well as a potential studio operation level. I am enjoying every piece of reading, homework and personal practice.” T. Butler, Level 1 Graduate.
