Step 2: Teaching Yoga in Schools

The curriculum that Cheryl wrote has really impacted me personally and professionally.  I look forward to growing with students and the curriculum.   I have attended a lot of professional trainings and this has been by far the BEST and the only PL that has truly transformed my teaching for the better.    I learned a lot from everyone and myself this past weekend and I look forward to the journey that is ahead.
