The thread through all of this learning will be anchored in your own heart.  What is your voice as a teacher?  What are your unique gifts and talents that you are here to share with your students?  Which of the many varied practices of yoga nourish your own heart and light you up when you think about sharing them with others?

Receive the personal instruction and supportive community necessary to super charge your own practice and spiritual development while also gaining the confidence and knowledge needed to intelligently guide others.

The majority of the training will be taught by Matece Skow with an esteemed guest faculty that includes Prajna Vieira, Robyn Capobianco, Greg Burdulis, Beth Lazarus, Suzy Yeagley, Laughing Womyn Ashonosheni, Jamie Jackson, Christine Eartheart, Yulia Azriel, and Ingrid Skoog, among others.
