Dear Prospective Student,
My name is Bonnie Fiore, owner and operator of Fit To Be Tied Yoga studios.
I have been certifying teachers through Yoga Alliance for 15 years. I teach more than the required information; I teach to the feeling of the class. I teach the student in training to be aware of the student's mind set when entering the yoga studio. For that reason, I offer Reiki 1 certification as part of your training, which reinforces the first rule of teaching a class... always take care of yourself first.
You will learn how to apply gentle assists during class, which stem from the ancient style of body work called Thai massage....
If you have any questions please give me a call.
