Yoga is not about the fancy pose. It is about getting into your head, and your heart. It is about taking what you learn on the mat into your life off the mat. Jim completed RYT200 teacher training at Republic of Yoga in Cary, NC, and is currently enrolled in RYT300 teacher training at Asheville Yoga Center.

Gathering of Teachers and Teachers in Training to study yoga poses, assists, and sequences for Continuing Education.
Some of the folks in the teacher training class have expressed an interest in gathering for practice outside of the class room training. This Meetup intends to facilitate that gathering.
