Integrative Yoga Teacher Training is a unique opportunity to gain a well-rounded foundation to teaching yoga. We will focus on establishing the yogi in teaching methodologies of asana, pranayama, meditation, and sanskrit chanting. This training is not only for those who aspire to teach, but also for those ready to delve into the many limbs of what yoga has to offer. Throughout this training, there is an emphasis on sadhana (personal practice), and sangha (sacred community).
