Yoga Teacher Training

 

We do yoga not to be better at yoga, but to be better at life

“Our relationship with yoga is what we share as teachers. This is our gift to the world, and our unique voice is what we offer, and what we share. All good trainings will teach you how to structure a class, how to safely instruct a pose and how to align the body in asana. Our course will cover all of this in an in-depth and complete way embracing and welcoming all learning styles. The benefit of an immersive training in a retreat location like ours is that you have the opportunity to go really deep; into the practice, and into yourself and to find your own unique teaching voice and what YOU have to offer the world”. – Michelle
