Opportunity for 4-week Immersion, Miami-FL

Our 4- Week Immersion is an intense experience of living, breathing, sweating, and dreaming yoga! Lightrail Yoga Teacher Training will prepare you to integrate the practice of yoga into your life. This is a comprehensive, concentrated training which has full days where you will be completely immersed in your yoga training. This dynamic program works well for those who like to focus on one thing at a time or whose schedule allows them to devote four full weeks to the study of yoga (and living in Miami). There is time after the training is finished to complete homework assignments.
