New Teacher Training Program

The first Yoga Center of Chico Yoga Teacher Training/Advanced Study course is coming this autumn. The program will be taught by Dr. Paula Barros, Tom Hess and Rex Stromness and will take place one or two  weekends per month starting September 26.

This will be a comprehensive course that will help you to learn to teach yoga. You will gain a deeper understanding of the many layers of yoga -- you will greatly advance your own practice -- and you will  begin to find your voice as a teacher and perhaps make teaching yoga a new career. The cost of the course is $2750.00 with a discount of $250.00 if paid by Sept. 15.

Visit the Yoga Center of Chico website for more info.
