Project Description

300-HOUR HATHA & YIN YOGA TEACHER TRAINING

OVERVIEW

Our 300-hour Hatha and Yin Yoga Teacher Training is a four-week intensive course that allows you to become a 300-hour certified Yoga Teacher, while studying two yoga courses in one. The first three weeks of this yoga teacher training program are based on Hatha Yoga while the last week is based on Yin Yoga.
