My friends Ken and Lina are starting their amazing Miami-based teacher training program in June. They incorporate very cool elements of Mayan tradition and other spiritual practices into a very unique and authentic program. Expect to be challenged. Expect to stretch. Expect to grow. This is the real deal.
The Skanda Yoga Teacher Training program is a 200-hour course certified by Yoga Alliance. The course is designed for those who wish to pursue teaching, or refine their teaching skills, but is also open to students that simply want to learn more about yoga. Those who complete the course will be eligible for Skanda Yoga E-RYT 200 certification and Yoga Alliance registration.
Teacher training dates are on Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 PM – 6:00 PM.
