You will learn and explore:
- How to safely execute postures with clear, detailed principles of alignment
- A deeper understanding of the physical and subtle body
- The fundamentals of meditation and pranayama

It is our belief that the two part aspect of our teacher training program allows you the time to develop your own experiences which enables you to find your own authentic voice if you choose to pursue teaching yoga.
