The training will give you the opportunity to learn how to commit to daily meditation and asana practice. With journaling and weekly meetings with a partner, there is space for developing ways of articulating your individual experience.

The Peoples Yoga emphasizes that in order to develop the pedagogical skills needed to teach and empower others we must first “do the work ourselves”. The schedule for the training varies depending on the training format you choose.
