Full Description

This continuing education course is for 200-hour certified yoga teachers looking to refine and develop their yoga teaching skill sets, deepen their own physical and spiritual practice and get fresh inspiration! Traditionally, we are taught that to develop and deepen, we need Study and Practice — these are the two wings of the bird and we need both to fly! The OM 500 TT is designed to provide a balance of study and practice, creating a clear path to becoming a more skillful, caring, confident and marketable yoga teacher.
