Teaching teachers requires more than good experience teaching yoga. The journey to transition from being a studio yoga teacher to someone who guides and educates other teachers is one that takes a lot of consideration, mentorship, and continued study.

In this one-of-a-kind course, begin your journey as an educator and learn the essential skills needed to become a faculty trainer or continuing education provider. Learn the fundamentals of lesson planning, presentation, and classroom management. Study how to teach to different learning styles, guided by modern psychology and the wisdom of Ayurveda. This course is indispensable for anyone wanting to shift their path to guide new teachers in their study of yoga.
