An advanced teacher training course with Michael James Wong, co-founder of Sunday School Yoga. Join us for this 50 hour post graduate teacher training course that covers the education and approach needed for competent and confident hands on assisting.

For many new teachers, putting your hands on a students body is a scary and unnatural thing. And that’s okay. It means you care. Learning how to assist the room, while teaching and touching is a task that takes time, focus and experience. So we have a whole course dedicated to just this. This course focuses entirely on how to build your knowledge and know-how for hands-on support in class.
