Led by Blair Hughes
July 7-27, 2018

Your choice to become a Yoga Teacher will not only hugely enhance your personal yoga practice, but more importantly transform your way of being in the world. This Yoga Teacher Training is not for everyone. If your interest is only on the asanas, then this life changing program is not for you. However, if you are willing to truly see yourself from a new vantage point, allowing that which is not serving you in your life to fall away to then attract and embrace that which will serve you and the world around you, then you must consider this transformational Yoga Teacher Training.

COURSE INTENTIONS

  1. Learn how to deliver a powerful and classical vinyasa sequence, with excellence and precision to inspire and empower your students.
  2. Learn how to access your intuition from day one of training. Teaching from your truth is the most powerful and influential way to transform your yoga students and the yogi within you.
  3. Learn how to keep ourselves accountable through ritual, how our own practice and experiences are the way in which we can be authentic to teach from the heart
