Max Stroms’ Inner Axis | 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

This 200 Hour training consists of two 15 day segments and both segments will have one day off in the middle. The training will be taught by Max Strom (20 days) and with Jamie Elmer teaching the Applied Anatomy portion of the training (7 days). The course will include some homework, including required reading and some exercises.

The capacity for personal transformation is present in each of us, yet is often hidden beneath the surface, neglected by the demands and routine of our daily life. Max Strom’s Inner Axis training will teach you how to guide ordinary people through the experience of extraordinary transformation. It is designed to prepare you to teach people from all walks of life and levels of fitness, whether or not your student has a stiff body or a rigid schedule.

If you’re in a leadership position, or have the aim to become a teacher, or simply have the desire to enrich your knowledge and practice of Max Strom’s method, you will find this course inspiring and indispensable to your journey.
