Deepen Your Yoga Program
A Yoga Practitioner’s Program
300 HR YTT
- Are you feeling dissatisfied with your Yoga practice, and feeling unsure how to fix it?
- Do you find it difficult to maintain a personal yoga practice?
- Do you feel like you’re constantly exploring topics at surface-level, but not diving deep into the subject matter or really experiencing it?
- Are you feeling burnt out from teaching full time, and not sure how to tend to your own Yoga, not just your student’s practice?
- Have you ever sustained a Yoga-related injury and then felt uncomfortable continuing to teach the same sort of practice that injured you?
- Are you looking for a 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training?
- Did your Yoga practice suffer when the pandemic hit, and studios closed?
- Do you feel your love of Yoga waning?
You are not alone!
The way the Yoga “industry” is set up emphasizes certifications that tend towards short and shallow studies. Many teachers complete them, then start to teach, only to discover how much they don’t know, or that they lack confidence in guiding others.
This begs the question: how do you proceed in your Yoga studies in a deep and meaningful way?
This is why we created the Deepen Your Yoga Program. This 15-month program for Yoga Practitioners is designed to help you develop a firm foundation for your personal practice, and to help you move toward your most authentic and balanced self through Yoga’s tools.
This is a program of substance and depth that will allow you to discover yourself, and make positive changes that will actually last. At least, that’s what our students have been saying for years.
