Understanding the 300 hour program

Beyond the 100 hour difference of time investment and $1000 difference in financial commitment, is a rigor and reward that matches the increased demand placed upon you. This transformational process requires the whole person to engage. The pressure increases to allow space in time and in your world to facilitate a birthing forth of a stronger, more flexible and more balanced version of you. It is another layer of release that allows you to make way for others to not only share in the gift of yoga, but share in their teaching of yoga.

This road is not for the weak at heart, it will require perseverance when every obstacle is staring you in the face. Innovative techniques will be explored that will develop expansion within you and this heightened challenge will cause you to rise above or dig more deeply to come through this obstacle course and find what you are in search of. There are no booby traps set up for you, other than the realities of life that come and go while you engage in your training and the text will reveal your resilience and readiness to lead others that will lead other that might lead others. You will join the ranks of a long, long road and list of teachers, which is no small feat.
