Yoga Teacher Training
The decision to become a yoga teacher comes from a love of yoga and the desire to share its life-changing rewards with others. If you have reached the point where you feel you are ready to share your passion and knowledge with others, or you simply want to deepen your own practice of yoga and yourself, then consider one of Santosha’s Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) Certification programs.
