Yoga Teacher Training

Essence is excited to be offering our first ever Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) program, designed to help educate future yoga teachers and instructors in how to best serve their students in a studio setting. It is a long term program that begins this January, highlighting critical elements in understanding both yoga practice and education. Our goal is to train the next generation of Yoga instructors in the techniques and methods they need to be successful, and to help promote understand and awareness of Yoga therapies throughout Toledo.

This is a rare opportunity for you to dive even deeper into your yoga practice and become not only an expert in Yoga practice and techniques, but a learned instructor able to help introduce others to Yoga therapy. If you are interested in learning more about this program, or would like to sign up to take your next step in becoming a certified Yoga instructor contact Essence today at 419-873-6463.
