200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Starts February 2019! Advance your practice & Cultivate Equanimity!

Workshop | posted on Dec 22, 2018
YogaSource Palo Alto is proud to announce its first Yoga Teacher Training in downtown Palo Alto! Join us for 11 weekends from February to June 2019 to advance your practice, cultivate equanimity, and journey into teaching!

This foundational 200-Hour training, accredited by Yoga Alliance, is designed to give students a deeper understanding of the 8 limbs of yoga, including the philosophy, pranayama, meditation, and asana — as well as provide students with tools to develop their own equanimity, sense of self, and authentic voice. On that foundation, students will begin to explore the vast pedagogy of yoga, build skills think critically about the practices of yoga, and teach others using a simple, methodical approach. Students will practice advanced alignment-based asana each morning and dive into discussions, lectures, and hands-on skills labs each afternoon.
