Life is stressful enough and going through a teacher training program puts additional demands on your time. Yoga should not be stressful and studying locally allows you to better keep to your existing schedule while gaining the knowledge you need to become a good teacher.
Breath Centered's training is truly geared toward yoga through the life span--from pre-natal to adults with a variety of needs and interests. You will learn not only how to intelligently put together a course that includes appropriate postures, breathing, and meditation practices for a group but also how to work with individuals.
Deborah has been teaching yoga for 13 years and has been practicing for more than 20. Yoga has been part of her own process of healing from njuries and dealing with stress. She works with students from all walks of life, from pregnant women to active military to senior citizens.
