Yoga teacher training is more than just the poses. It’s about community. It’s about self discovery. It’s about YOU. The 2019 #BDY 200-hour Teacher Training is happening in conjunction with our sister spaces, Yoga Vibe Los Feliz and Yoga Vibe WeHo in West Hollywood ☀️
It’s a unique opportunity to learn from the owners of three independent yoga studios: Sigrid Matthews and Amy and Larry Santiago.

Actually, no props :) as it was a yin weekend!

It was a weekend of YINtensive care at #BDY 🐾
Thanks to an awesome group of #yogis who turned out for this past weekend’s #YinYoga training.
