Presence Not Performance: 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training
It’s estimated that 450,000 people currently practice yoga in the UK and it’s a growing industry. The yoga industry has changed dramatically in recent years; the advent of social media, yoga and body image and the McDonaldisation of an ancient practice.
