    If given the opportunity, I would love to be an assistant in this summer’s 200h Yoga Teacher Training. It is my deepest desire to help create a profoundly nourishing environment where future Yoga teachers can take their first steps onto a path of inspiration and knowledge.
    Much love,
    Diana Buxban

      Namaste Thuy, thank you for your comment. For the Teaching Assistant program you do need to be a 200 Hour trained Yoga Teacher and located an easy commute distance to our location.

    I would be interested but I’m not available one of the weekends. Is there any flexibility on this?

      Thank you Catherine for your interest. We require the Teaching Team Lead and the Teaching Assistants to be present for all of the training weekends. It provides consistency to the students for the best possible training experience. Be well, Devinder
