When you choose the certification track, in addition to receiving lifetime access to all course content, you’ll develop your skills even further by working with Sage’s direct help. In completing homework assignments, writing a final exam, and recording and reviewing a teaching video, you’ll sharpen your understanding of how to teach yoga to athletes, develop a well of sequences and approaches to help you serve any student, and receive direct mentoring from Sage and collaboration from other participants.
