• are seeking the certification, skills, and knowledge of the yogic sciences and arts in order to teach to others as a path supporting a balanced life and whole living

• are seeking a professional and well rounded training program for her or his own personal growth and self discovery

• are seeking to refresh knowledge and skills, enriching a past certification in yoga that may have already been obtained in any of the traditions of Yoga

• are seeking spiritual-mind-body empowerment through the in depth exploration and study of the tradition of Vinyasa Yoga
