In 2022 we begin our hybrid training model that allows you to attend up to 150 live or in person, or take the entire training virtually on demand. This yoga alliance certified training is dedicated to addressing the under representation of BIPOC yoga instructors in America. All students are welcome as we seek to create diverse access to experts in their field and foster the most soulful instructors on the planet.
