Yoga South Offers Teacher Training with a Community Twist

Yoga Certification at Boca Raton Yoga South Includes Community Outreach

Boca Raton, FL - September 18, 2009 - Yoga South announced it will include a lesson in the value of giving with its yoga certification program by encouraging graduates to teach free community yoga classes, according to Yoga South's Owner James Kigar and Director of Teacher Training Judy Weaver.

Rooted in the Vinyasa Yoga System and designed to give students a comprehensive understanding of Hatha yoga, the intensive training course taught at Yoga South, Boca Raton's premier Vinyasa yoga studio, is a 200-hour certification course. Students will graduate from the program with the skills they need to design and teach Vinyasa flow yoga.

"The Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training at Yoga South gives students a deep understanding of the body, mind and spirit, and shows how the yoga postures work with each of them," says Kigar, who has been teaching and practicing yoga since 1989.

Yoga South's training program infuses instructors with the process to create an improvisational flow and also recommends each graduate offers a free community class at the studio upon completion.
