Our Vision

handstand (adho muhka vrksasana) yoga teacher trainingTeaching yoga requires sensitivity, compassion and understanding, as well as lots of practice and technical and therapeutic knowledge. This program is designed for your own essence to radiate through, to communicate your own voice and expression of yoga naturally and with ease. To that intent, one must become free of the ego’s attachment of “am I good enough to teach?” Yes, you are! If you truly care to give, to serve, to inspire yourself and others, you are indeed a strong candidate for teacher’s training. It’s about joy of learning, not intimidation. Our program is carefully designed to inspire you and allow you to open to your full potential.

Our graduates work in their communities with great success. Many have intitaited their own business. They graduate the program with the skill to help common concerns for backs, hips, necks/shoulders, knees, spine, as well as increasing strength and stamina.
