Michelle Young and Ana Pilar Cruz are excited to bring a unique offering to the My Vinyasa Practice community. On January 15th, our Hybrid 200 Hour Tantra Yoga Teacher Training will begin. We'll be meeting twice a week, Saturday and Sunday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. central time through July. Sessions will be recorded and supplemented with prerecorded content. The training will take students through the history and philosophy of Tantra Yoga, including rituals, practices, and tantric techniques. Can't make the live meetings? It's perfectly fine; we'll be recording them and inserting them into the training for anyone who cannot attend live.
Whether this is your first yoga teacher training or your twentieth, you'll be exposed to traditional techniques that elevate conscious connection to yourself, others, and your experience. At the end of your training you'll be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance if you are not currently certified or you can use this training as continuing education credits if you're already a 200 hour RYT with Yoga Alliance.
