This training is designed to equip new and experienced teachers with tools and strategies to teach brand-new students with confidence and skill, both online and in-person.

Introducing the power and potency of yoga to new students can be one of the most rewarding types of teaching there is. Yet, many teachers find that this type of teaching comes with its own set of unique challenges.

This training is intended for teachers who have completed a 200-hour level training. Participants can expect to participate in group discussions and simple asana practices in each session and complete short written assignments between sessions.
