Course Overview

Many teachers “sandwich" themes in at the beginning and end of the class, which is not as powerful as a class that seamlessly interweaves a theme throughout. Learn to share the wisdom of yoga teachings through this workshop with long time teacher and lead Level 2 teacher Jennie Wadsten

Jennie teaches in an accessible and fun way and interactive way, encouraging yoga teachers to find their authentic voice and helping them to spread their yogic knowledge in a comprehensible, intelligent and useful way.
