200-Hour Power Vinyasa Teacher Training
Starts January 2020 at Overflow Studios (LBK)
There comes a time in our lives where we decide to strive for more, more life, more connection, more truth. We look at creating change and inspiring others. In 2005 a yoga teacher whispered in my ear, “You should consider teacher training.” Those five words changed my life forever. I was in search for my purpose in life. I was in search for love, happiness and joy. So I took the leap of faith and it was the best decision of my life. Teacher Training gave me the tools to live the life I wanted. It gave me the tools to step beyond fear and go after what I wanted in life: to serve at a bigger level. I left the corporate world, moved back to Austin and opened Breath and Body Yoga in 2006. Lauren Finck experienced the same passion for life and yoga. While living in Austin, she completed this 200-Hour Teacher Training program and her passion for yoga and being of service blossomed. She moved to Lubbock to begin her family and began running classes out of her home over a year ago. Currently, her home classes are at maximum capacity. It's time for her to take the next step and open a studio. That means she needs teachers. Breath and Body Yoga is honored to run our powerful 200-Hour Power Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training with Desirae Pierce in conjunction with Lauren opening a her new space called Overflow Studios. We begin the 200- Hour Breath and Body Yoga Power Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training program in January 2019. Let’s start this conversation now. If you have practiced yoga for six months or more and ready to deepen every aspect of your life, this training is for you. The schedule and details are below. This is your opportunity to step onto a new plateau of your life. Ready to inspire others. Ready to live freely, if so, this training is for you.
