200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

Are you interested in becoming a yoga instructor or deepening your personal yoga practice? Join me and Jessie Lipkowitz, E-RYT200 at aUM Yoga Ann Arbor for our 200 Hour yoga teacher training. The depths of knowledge in the yoga pool seem endless, and we acknowledge that a 200 Hour training scratches the surface of all that can be attained from a personal yoga practice and a life-long pursuit of learning and living yogic principles. Regardless, we are very proud of the curriculum we've created for aUM Yoga's Demystify Yoga Teacher Training.
