We are thrilled to announce the launch of the first Hoop Vinyasa Teacher Training with the mission of providing you with the tools to develop Hoop Vinyasa classes and workshops in your own area. Recently featured in the Yoga Journal and the New York Times, Hoop Vinyasa is an innovative fusion of hoop dance and vinyasa yoga.

Hoop Vinyasa Teacher Training will offer skills and insights to further develop your own practice both as a hooper and a yogi/yogini. The techniques are geared to empower you to cultivate students and to gain insight into your teachings in the traditional yoga or Vinyasa yoga setting.
