Last year's conference attendees reported 100% satisfaction from the experience. Participants have found the Yoga Conference/Full YTT to be as much of a personal retreat as it is a professional development course. 

Research has shown that yoga enhances students lives at every level, physically, mentally, socially and emotionally, helping them to make healthier lifestyle choices, become more skillful in relationships, gain control over their impulses, while supporting their learning. Are you ready to bring this transformational tool into your school and see the positive benefits that it brings to your students?
