One common misconception of teacher training is “I don’t (necessarily) want to teach. It’s not for me.” The end goal is to find the tricks, tips, and deeper connection to the practice– to first and foremost enhance your own journey. Then –maybe–teaching others might feel like your path.
Ever wonder if there was more to your yoga practice? There is. Our teacher training allows you to both expand your personal practice and share your passion of yoga with others.
