The Bija Yoga School 500 hour TT took my teaching to a whole new level, imparting knowledge with deep context, helping me further understand the ancient practice of yoga and it’s applications in the modern world. I loved the variety of voices and perspectives from the amazing, highly experienced teachers that taught the different modules. I looked forward to each training weekend as a time to learn, to grow, and to connect, and I made lifelong friends in the process. Thank you Kelly, Christopher, Marlyssa, and Tara! Nikki Dean, RYT500
