Who is This Training For?

IYI 500 is designed for It’s Yoga International 200 Hr.  and It’s Yoga International 50/100 Hr. Rocket Graduates who have a deep connection to the Rocket Routines, and are committed to sharing the love of the practice at the highest level.
Up until 501 I thought I had started the 300hr It’s Yoga training because I wanted to certify as 500hr yoga teacher, train other teachers, stand on my hands strongly and deepen my knowledge of Ashtanga Yoga and the Rocket. I did, and I continue to, get all of those but more than all of that I am growing into myself, breaking through internal barriers so that I can fly, free of burdening thoughts, on and off the mat.”
