Equipping You for Practice On and Off the Mat

SVADHYAYA (Sanskrit, n. “study of the self”)

Tuesdays and Thursdays


September 3, 2019 to February 13, 2020

Shri Yoga Center is offering a 4 month Yoga Alliance Certified 200 hour Teacher Training Intensive in the Fall of 2019. Led by Studio Owner, 20 year Teacher, and Living Your Yoga Practitioner, Marcia Bort Tazioli, this is a highly unique opportunity. Shri will be offering the only Teacher Training Program with a holistic and integrated focus on Living Your Yoga. This is in the process of being trademarked and is available only at Shri. The Training is as much about the yogi’s personal growth as it is about teaching per se. You will find svadhyaya (Sanskrit. n. study of the self) to be life changing for both your own practice and that of those you will have the privilege of guiding as teachers… on and off the mat. We would love to speak with you about your goals.
