TNDS 003: Why You Should Do A Yoga Teacher Training and My Rant About Higher Education (Random)

Today I am talking about one of the greatest passions in my life: yoga and yoga teacher training. I wanted to address this topic (and shamelessly plug Yoga Travel Tree's Mexico Teacher Training this May!) because I always get asked the question: why should I do this? How does it benefit me?

So join me as I discuss how a crazy idea that started on a porch in Costa Rica has blossomed into a lucrative passion career, and what yoga (or any passion) could do for your future. To learn more about Yoga Travel Tree, who we are and what we do, please visit the website and check out some of the cool things we've got coming up!
