Beyond certifying you to be able to teach yoga, MeshYoga aims to create a rich and transformative life experience. We provide you with a solid, classical foundation, while encouraging you to grow creatively. MeshYoga Teacher Training takes you beyond simply understanding alignment in postures. We support our students in the experience of a dynamic asana practice that is a portal into a life practice that is truly authentic, graceful, and vibrant.
