Come prepared to be heavily engaged over the course of one year. The training includes individual and group coaching in real-time, four in-person gatherings, group video conference calls, and intensive training in the practices and methods of transformation used in Baptiste Yoga.

There is an emphasis on freeing up the constraints which thwart one’s ability to express themselves freely and clearly, with a focus on effectively leading large groups.
