This training is a Self-development course that will also give you the necessary tools to make Yoga teaching a new career direction for you. It is for those who desire to deepen their own knowledge and practice of yoga as well as for those who seriously wish to make Yoga teaching a personal profession. Don’t feel you must need to want to become a teacher to join the course; an urge to grow and awaken to life’s richness without the desire to teach is enough. It is recommended that you have a minimum of 2 years Yoga practice before applying, or be studying regularly with Laura already.
