You will build confidence, find your yoga voice, and be ready and prepared to teach.

Lynda …”Those of you who know my background and have taken classes from me know that I am very passionate about yoga and how it can benefit the quality of our lives. As you embark on this yoga teacher training it is about giving you the best training and understanding of this lifestyle of Yoga. We have developed the curriculum from our experience and training over the years and those topics we felt were good and those we felt were lacking.
