Every participant has at least a 200-hour teacher training certificate and is actively working with students and clients in a yoga setting.
We believe that an experienced yoga teacher is a key component in our healthcare network and with our credentials, people know they have a teacher who is knowledgeable and experienced. The 500hr advanced training focuses on a deeper understanding of Western anatomy and physiology and its application to the traditional yoga philosophy. We train our teachers to understand the body and the practice so that they can understand how to apply the practice to the individual with any style or level of practice to create personalized therapeutic yoga sessions.
