YOGA TEACHER TRAINING

Soul EmPowered Yoga 95 hour Kid's Teacher Training

Yoga is such a powerful tool for everyone, especially through the formative years of babies through teens. In this course, we bring together our vast knowledge of our South Asian heritage of yoga (including pranayama, asana, meditation) and our vast experience teaching/leading babies through teen yoga programs in schools, yoga studios, community centers, etc.
