Senior yoga teachers Elizabeth Gray and Karen Guzak partnered to bring the ultimate in yoga teacher training to Snohomish.

The 200-hour Yoga Alliance Certified program immerses the student in the teachings and practices of Viniyoga, a style of yoga that adapts the various means and methods of practice to the unique condition, needs, and interests of each individual.

The seven-month training began January 10, 2019, and culminated in a five-day, four-night yoga retreat in July at the North Cascades Institue.
