    In this training, participants will deepen their personal yoga practice and build solid teaching techniques. This training is grounded in the physical aspect of yoga, enriched with mindfulness and philosophy. The practice of yoga has the potential to take the practitioner closer to health on a physical, mental, and emotional level. We believe in the healing potential of yoga as an incredible tool for personal liberation and a bridge to social liberation. In our training, participants and faculty alike work together to offer a radically inclusive culture of yoga that aims to change the way we know health.
