Yoga Teacher Training
LEVEL 2: YTT
Yoga Teacher Training (YTT): 50 hours
Prerequisite: Immersion (Part 1).
For students who wish to share their newfound knowledge of yoga with others in their communities. The yoga teacher's primary objective is to help others to become more aware on multiple levels, including the inner workings of their bodies, minds, and breath. Few "jobs" offer you the opportunity to impact people so profoundly. New yoga teachers have many opportunities to teach. You will be able to lead classes for schools, community centers, churches, yoga studios, health clubs, neighborhood rec. centers, coworkers, organizations, or for family and friends.
The focus of the yoga teacher training section will be to learn how to teach yoga to others safely and sensitively
