Established Yoga Center Now Offers 30-Day Yoga Training in the Blue Ridge Mountains

More than 20 million Americans practice yoga, and for many practitioners it’s more than just a workout; it’s a way of life. This has lead a growing number of students to rethink their stressful jobs and pursue the path of the yoga teacher. “Doing what you love for a living creates a deep sense of fulfillment in your daily actions,” says Val Spies, owner of The Lotus Pond Center for Yoga and Health in Tampa, FL. “It’s not always easy, but it’s always worthwhile. I took a leap of faith when I left the corporate world to open my yoga center, and I encourage everyone to follow their passion.” To meet the increasing demand for yoga teacher training, The Lotus Pond is now offering a 30-day yoga training program at The Art of Living Center in Boone, NC.

Participants can escape the everyday grind in the Blue Ridge Mountains for the yoga training this August. The Art of Living Center, founded by international spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, spans more than 381 acres and offers an opportunity for modern Americans to live the healthy, peaceful path of yoga without the distractions or demands of the routine. The Mayo Clinic reports a number of studies that show yoga reduces stress and anxiety, among a host of other health benefits from relieving chronic pain to preventing risk factors for heart disease ( Feb. 12, 2015). And when the participants finish their month in the mountains, they’ll be Yoga Alliance certified 200hr instructors, ready to share these tremendous benefits with others.
