This program serves to provide additional professional training/practicum beyond the student’s 200hr Teacher Training program. The hope is to continue the valuable feedback and support that students receive in the Yoga Studies Course (or other training) in a small group environment.

Yoga Teaching happens in a variety of different settings. This program is specifically interested in improving the skill of teaching a group class consisting of meditation, breathing and movement exercises.
