Yoga Teacher Training
This program provides students with the opportunity to deepen their understanding and experience of the rich tradition of yoga both on and off the mat. The studies involve the various techniques of yoga- the poses, breathing practices, meditation, cleansing techniques and chanting.
Students learn about the history and philosophy of yoga and the lifestyle the practice of yoga encourages. The curriculum covers the basics of anatomy, and because The Marsh is focused on tailoring instruction according to the particular needs of individuals, the teacher training emphasizes the various ways one can adapt one’s teaching for special populations.
