Attendees hone leadership abilities and indoctrinate themselves in the secrets of yogic business acumen. Besides nitty-gritty practicalities, the course covers less-tangible content, including elucidating yin yang philosophies. Graduates who complete all training requirements will be certified to teach yoga level 1, level 2, and open-level classes.
