Yoga Teacher Trainings
new 200hr & 300HR Advanced training both locally & abroad
Center for Natural Living teaches and guides you to understand yoga - to practice, to share and teach. We meditate, explore and learn how the inner healing affects the outer. Through the discourse of the Philosophy, of the Yamas and the Niyamas, we learn how to find our own "center" even amidst the outer challenges.
Our small groups give you the chance to get individualized feedback from our instructors who embody yoga. With a strong focus on the techniques of structural and energetic anatomy of asanas our training will leave you feeling empowered and ready to share your practice.
