I direct the Carolina Yoga Company’s yoga teacher trainings. We offer our 200-hour (i.e., entry-level) program in an eight-month format that meets the second weekend of each month, September through April. This allows for both locals and visitors to enjoy our programs. We meet at Carrboro Yoga in a custom-designed training room. Carrboro is convenient to Chapel Hill, Hillsborough, Durham, Raleigh, Pittsboro, and Burlington, NC.
Our programs have run since 2011. They reflect our studio’s responsible eclecticism and commitment to the highest professional standards. I would love to talk to you about what we offer! Here are the steps toward applying.
