You will also learn safe transition postures, and how to effectively bring them into your asana classes; and learn how to creatively incorporate yoga philosophy, personal development pranayama, mudras & meditation into your classes, providing your students with an empowering & life enhancing experience.

You will study teaching methodology anchored in Western Psychology’s Effective Communication Skills, and complete Hali Love’s curated personal development program where you will learn tools to connect to your authentic voice and to the most powerful expression of yourself.
