Between Immersion and Certification you will take what you learned and bring it home to start practicing on your own—developing the necessary discipline and independence to make this a lasting part of your skill set. Depending on your course of study you will practice guiding IAM Yoga or Yoga Nidra sessions, and complete other take-home assignments which will be crucial to your success in the certification portion of your training. Learn more
