Our teachers are well-trained and experienced in teaching people of varying ability levels. We believe in non-competitive yoga and support students to approach their practice with loving-kindness while still striving to express the architectural foundation of each pose.
Numerous certified teachers working successfully all over the world, graduated from our month long 200-Hour Yoga Teachers Training Courses which are Yoga Alliance-approved.
