Yoga Elements Teacher Training and Certification
LEARNING. TRANSFORMATION. SHARING.
This year as we re-designed our respected 260 hour yoga teacher training, we kept asked ourselves the following question:
“What has to happen in order to transform students into the highest skilled yoga teachers?”
This is a unique training experience that will produce transformation of your body, your life, and your abilities in teaching. We focus on getting knowledge in to your muscle through sequenced learning experiences. Whether you decide to take this four month program to develop your yoga practice or for becoming an extraordinary teacher (or both?), this is the way to go!
