2020 Level I Graduate
The Therapeutic Yoga Training - Level I Online - gives yoga teachers the skills to work intelligently with students who are living with chronic illness, injury, and age-related challenges. Knowing how to work with these populations will deepen your confidence as a teacher, expand the range of private clients you can work with, and increase the types of classes and one-on-one sessions you can offer, both in-person and virtually.
