Practice sessions offered during the training, helped me to hone skills that I have since been able to weave into group and individual sessions.”

"For beginners and experienced yoga practitioners alike, the workshop is great for everyone! Both Dr. Shafer and Dr. Tebb are extremely passionate presenters, and they clearly care a lot about bringing yoga practices into mental health. And they have an abundance of knowledge and experience! I learned a great deal from their hands-on approach, and I have already incorporated these yoga experiences into my personal and professional practice. I would highly recommend attending their workshops!"
