You will develop a full toolbox of fundamentals—postures, breathwork, meditation, anatomy, sequencing, philosophy, history, adjustments, and the business of yoga.
Once you have received the minimum requirement of 200 hr according to Yoga Alliance standards – that is just the beginning, and I do mean the beginning. There will be years of practice and much more education. Most studios don’t tell you that, but I do.
