Teacher training does not mean the same thing to every yogi.

For some it may mean learning their body, for some it may be the next step toward leading professional classes and being a 'yoga teacher', and for some it may mean they have no idea what they are doing but need to figure it out. We want to help nurture EACH of those journeys--they are all important.


While we expect a lot from our training students--we give as much as we can to support those expectations and encourage their each of them to thrive and realize their true potential!

It is a commitment to yourself--and we commit as a studio and training team to taking this journey with you!

---Mary Ruth Smith, 200 ERYT and Lead B+Y Trainer
