The three-pronged approach of lecture, experiential learning and practicum teaching is ideal for yoga teachers to truly hone the art of teaching.

This training includes anatomy of the fascia, exploration of Yin qualities of a yoga practice and sequencing to balance the energies associated with Traditional Chinese Medicine Meridian Lines.
