Stimulating the PNS helps to lower heart rate, blood pressure; it helps to healthily stimulate the immune system.

Fee = $15. Class size limited to 12 people.

Who are you as a Yoga teacher? Do you want to take your teaching to the next level?
Are you looking for a teacher training program that fosters a collegial learning environment and seeks
to support your unique learning and teaching style, rather than asking you to conform to theirs?

Artful teaching demands a willingness to reach into the depths of your heart to find the words, the trust,
and the courage to offer experiences that move, enrich and transform people’s lives.

Our 300 hour training is heart-centered and non-dogmatic and will have you walk away feeling more confident in your ability to share what you love in your own organic way.

This comprehensive phase of the training offers a more in-depth study and presents a broader view of the yoga tradition. It provides the experience, knowledge and confidence to establish a career as a yoga teacher, expand teaching opportunities and live a life inspired by one's own personal practice.
