What You'll Experience

Level 4 includes skill-building in advanced cueing, theming, marketing, and business development, and also takes a dive into the philosophy of the Bhagavad Gita. In addition to building their skills in teaching presence, assists, and demonstrations, students will receive the hands-on feedback for their own practice that is only possible in-person.
