"The purpose of life is a life of purpose. A life of purpose is a life of service, you get to choose how, what and who you serve."
Heart Core Yoga School is an internationally accredited Teacher Training Program of Anusara Yoga as a Yoga Alliance 200 RYS Yoga Teacher Training school.
Heart Core Yoga teacher training program is fun and empowering! The program is taught in sequential order from the very basics, so if you’ve never taught anyone anything you will learn the skills to guide people into their heart through their yoga postures in an hour and half class based in Anusara yoga. If you are already teaching another style of hatha yoga, you will gain more tools and skills for your teaching. Even if you never want to teach yoga, you will learn tools and communication skills that will serve in your daily life. The Heart Core Yoga Teacher Training program is taught as an intensive, broken into six sections: Immersions 1, 2, 3, Teacher Training 1, 2, 3.

- All six must be completed with Benita to qualify for the YA RYT 200 hr teaching certificate from Heart Core Yoga. HCY (Benita Galvan) has been an RYT school since 2009.
