500 Hour
Yoga Immersion and Teacher Training

Take your practice further and your knowledge deeper! Erin is delighted to offer an in-depth teacher training program at Yoga on the Hill. She will be running an 18 month long, 500 hour teaching training immersion, beginning in January, 2015. This course will dive deeply into the tradition of yoga, further your yoga practice, and bond you more wholly to a lifelong commitment to yoga. During these 18 months, you will be immersed in your practice and you will find more in your yoga than you thought possible.
