Our training is a primarily an in-person training with some components taking place on online. Because we will be meeting in person, we are strictly limiting the number of attendees for this training to 6*. We feel it is really important for there to be an in-person component of a 200-hour training particularly while learning asanas and functional anatomy of postures. The beauty of a small training is that the knowledge and information you receive will be rich and tailored to your practice. You will not be a 'face in the crowd' and your unique gifts as a yoga practitioner and potential teacher will be cultivated and enriched.
We will wear masks while practicing together in the studio.
Whenever possible, we will move our practice outside.
Online sessions will take place over Zoom.
