Develop deep, intimate connections with your fellow TT’s
Some yoga experience and a basic knowledge of yoga is required. What is most required is a deep commitment to one self, a desire to learn and what’s most important is an open heart to make the first giant leap onto the path of being a yoga teacher.
To get the most out of your Teacher Training Program, it is imperative that you attend 100% of the training.
If you miss a few hours of the program you can review the few hours missed with a fellow TT or schedule a private lesson with Marni. If you miss 1-2 days: You may still complete the program with your class, provided that you schedule either a private session (or group session) with Marni (1 hour private session equals 2 hours missed TT) or you can take a comparable workshop with other teachers.
