Yoga Teacher Training

“Yoga is the world’s oldest holistic system of self-development, integrating body, mind and spirit. Yoga encompasses a tremendous diversity of teachings and techniques. Yet, all schools of yoga commit to the common task of cultivating health, fostering personal growth and supporting  spiritual transformation. The full expression of yoga is a holistic lifestyle grounded in spiritual principles that expand consciousness and cultivate compassion.” ... a quote from the Kripalu Institute.
Now is the time to become a yoga teacher. A recent poll indicates that 18 million Americans practise yoga on a weekly basis, a number that is growing rapidly and expected to  continue to grow.
