Who should take this course? Anyone interested in taking their yoga practice to the next level whether it be for your own self-inquiry and discovery or your desire to share the art and science of yoga as a teacher.

Why take this course? With the uncertainties of today it seems sincere yoga teachers are needed now more than ever. Yoga can empower people to find their inner strength. One can find through yoga the confidence to fall is the readiness to walk. Yoga in a sense pulls away the curtain and lets your true light shine through. We are at a juncture in healthcare where it is time to reconnect with our bodies. If you take the time to bless the body, the body will bless you back. We are on an invigorating path of scientific discovery as Integrative Medicine is showing us there has never truly been a division of western and eastern thought. We are reaching beyond the mysticism to ever evolving science, which in turn is leading us back to ancient healing philosophies. As a yoga teacher you can open a door for someone to embark on a path to self-discovery, self-healing and a state of wellbeing.
