The Bindu 200 RYT Teacher Transformation Course
with Mark Shveima

2016 June-2017 February



“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” ~ Gandhi



Be the transformation you wish to see in the world and in your students.







Next year at studio BiNDU Mark will present a five-part 200 hr. RYT training for teachers that is going to shift the "teacher training" paradigm. Instead of simply giving technical knowledge to learn and practice, the vision is for a more cohesive approach to the presentation of the material so that the different aspects of a typical training: asana, pranayama, meditation, anatomy, philosophy, etc. actually interweave in a way that you will clearly understand the connectivity that runs through the entire Yoga universe/practice as a whole. You will also receive methods and teachings that will allow you to transform that knowledge into an authentic living expression of your daily life. By doing this you will truly begin to teach as a teacher and not an instructor.
