It is important that you are sincere in your commitment and that you are healthy physically, mentally and emotionally.

Yoga can be practiced by all and we do not want to discourage anyone who has the right intention however the training will be challenging physically and mentally and it is important that you are able to allow these changes to unfold.

During this exploration one may experience feelings of comfort, discomfort, happiness, sadness, joy and fear all of which are equally important in our growth.

We do recommend a minimum of 1 year of  Yoga Practice before attending our Yoga Teacher Training Program.
