Many Yoga teacher’s programs fall short in covering business entrepreneurship and how to equip graduates with the basics to make a profitable yoga career.  As a result, new yoga teachers get frustrated and quit what they once believed it was their Dharma (purpose).

In this weekend intensive we will provide useful tools for both new and established yoga professionals to set the foundation for not only a spiritually but also a financially rewarding yoga career

This module fulfills Yoga Alliance requirements for 20 CEU’s. It is also a core component of our 200 HR YTT.
