What are the benefits of taking a Teacher Training?

At the end of the Teacher Training, you will be recognized as a 200 hour Yoga Alliance certified yoga teacher. You can begin teaching public or private classes. Even if you don’t want to teach yoga, you will deepen your yoga practice and get a greater understanding of what the science and art of yoga is. Teacher training is a deeply satisfying experience; you grow and you learn a lot about YOURSELF. It is a gift that you not only give to yourself but also share with other people. The study of yoga is a lifelong journey; it doesn’t expire.
