200 Hour Teacher Training Program
September 2018 - April 2019
 

If not Now, then When? Your journey begins.  

We crave connection. All of us do {even if we don't realize it at first}. We crave connection with each other. We crave connection with nature. But, perhaps most of all, we crave connection with our Self. Huh? Let that sink in for a moment because it's totally true.

Our 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program will take you on a winding and unpredictable road towards uncovering...well...you. Here, big belly laughs coupled with an in-depth study of yoga asana (poses), anatomy, ethics, & philosophy will encourage the way. Immerse yourself in the spiritual, physical, & psychological aspects of yoga to aid in your own mind-body connection, which you can then use to inspire and educate others.
