We are thrilled to announce we’ve just launched a new teacher training course with David Wagner to help yoga teachers include meditation in their yoga classes.
Have you been meditating for years and now feel it’s time to share that knowledge with others? If you are a yoga teacher, this course will help you incorporate meditation into your classes. If you are a longtime practitioner, this course will help you meaningfully share meditation techniques with your friends, loved ones and colleagues.
