The aim of this program is to turn you into an exceptional teacher. At Down Dog we believe that the teacher who truly connects with their students has the ability to be impactful and effective in the classroom by speaking authentically from personal experience. Through hard work, open communication and self-inquiry, you will learn how to speak from the heart no matter who is standing in front of you.
You will be working side by side with Master teachers with more than 15+ years of classroom experience, work from a proven and effective methodology and learn the fundamental principles of teaching that go beyond yoga postures and transform lives. You will walk away understanding that classroom teaching is an art.
