200-Hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Summer 2019

With Kerry Lundy, and special guest instructors


Our 200-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training program is designed for lovers of yoga and aspiring teachers.  Learn how to teach a safe and efficient class with confidence while empowering your personal practice.

While this course will prepare you to teach classical Hatha Yoga classes, it is not necessary to be a teacher to attend, nor even to have the desire to teach. Many students have attended teacher training programs to enhance their personal practice. Those who wish to teach will find a wealth of invaluable tools to share with their students for years to come.
