While focusing on equipping you to teach Vinyasa yoga, the course will provide a solid foundation from which you can continue to explore other forms of yoga. You will be taught how to create and teach a Vinyasa class based on the principals of alignment and the ancient practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa.
