Join Bindu Yoga for a comprehensive and empowering journey into a dynamic and integrative approach to learning, living and teaching the diverse elements of Yoga. Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a somatic, transformational and spirit-filled practice that bridges the connection from the ordinary to the sacred through an energetic and intentional exploration of the flow of Prana (life-force) and of fully embodying our highest intentions and greatest potential.
This Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher Training Program is appropriate for both aspiring teachers and committed yogis who seek to delve into the full range of yogic experience and gain a thorough understanding of this evolving, rich body of knowledge and how to transmit it via Prana-focused Vinyasa Flow Yoga.This program will empower teachers with a broad and deep base from which to live and teach the flow of Yoga to all with skill, creativity,intelligence and authenticity.
Upon completion of required contact hours, projects and readings you will have experienced and learned a broad spectrum of yogic subject matter that will empower and inspire you. You will also be eligible for Yoga Alliance Registration at the level you have completed.

Bethany has been a wonderful goddess and teacher in my life. I can talk about her classes and teachings in yoga, where she provides an amazing space for her students to learn, reflect, grow and fully immerse, but there is so much more.
