200- Hour Intensive and Teacher Training

Join Marsha and Kathy in 2020 for the Balance Yoga 200-Hour Intensive and Teacher Training. These teachers are infectiously passionate about the ashtanga yoga practice as they have witnessed the life changing effect it has had not only in their lives but the lives of their students. They have decades of teaching and practicing experience between them and they want to share their knowledge with other enthusiastic and sincere practitioners.
