The only prerequisite for our students is that they have an open mind and an appetite for learning and growth. Our teachers are wonderful at balancing varying skill levels – we have had students with no experience taking the course alongside students with more than a decade of experience.
Each of our yoga students come with unique goals. Some want to get their yoga certificate to teach yoga, others want to answer deep and meaningful questions about their life, and still, others want to live a more meaningful life through yoga. Fully immersing yourself in yoga for during the course allows you to use yoga to ask and answer profound questions and discover what yoga can mean in your life.
