The teacher training experience offered by Mark provides such a well-rounded and thorough approach to truly teaching yoga that I highly recommend it to all who want to learn more about yoga regardless of teaching aspirations. Many teacher training programs turn out sufficient yoga class leaders, but Mark's program crafts you into a true teacher blessed with the knowledge to both begin a new path, and to also blossom down the road. You learn and develop an array of skill sets that you can draw upon to address the needs both physically and energetically of a wide range of yoga students.
Whether you have a special needs student, a student challenged with the mental/emotional side of the practice, or a long-time practitioner, Mark's teacher training offers you an unparalleled opportunity to provide intelligent guidance and challenges with confidence and grace. Of the several teacher training programs I have graduated from, I find myself continually drawing on the experiences and knowledge I gained from Mark Stephens. He continues to be a mentor and inspiration in both my teaching and my personal practice.
