Everything about my yoga teacher training was cool.

Karbo - Spain
My yoga teacher training was a transformative experience. I feel confident now in my ability to teach a yoga class, not just the poses but in a centered way that connects the mind and body. I honestly was a yoga skeptic when I arrived at my ytt and left knowing the truth that I am a soul in a body.
