The Eudora Yoga Center Institute for Yogic Studies will offer a new 200-hour teacher training certification course*, to take place over two weeks in Cortona, Italy. In addition to training students in the teaching of asana (including methods of adjustment, alignment, and anatomy), this course will provide a deep study of yogic philosophy, yoga history, sanskrit, and meditation. The certification course will be taught by Mary Kirkendoll, RYT200 and Geetanjali Tiwari, Ph.D. Those who complete the training will receive a certificate indicating they have received the Institute for Yogic Studies 200 Hour Certification (IYS200).

In addition, we are offering a YOGA RETREAT option. Retreat participants can attend any/all portions of the training course, and participate in any/all aspects of the training, but will not receive official certification. Retreat participants will also have additional opportunities to explore Tuscany and the surrounding areas. Special wine tours will be available at an extra cost, led by Michael Kirkendoll.

*The teacher training certification is closed, but we are still accepting reservations for the yoga retreat option.
