Beginning in July, Firefly Yoga Center will be offering certification level coursework in our Butterfly Studio at 419 Water St. SW, Olympia, WA. 
The coursework will be based on our Yoga Alliance Registered yoga teacher training curriculum and will be broken down into courses that will average an hour to two hours/week and 6-8 weeks in length. At the end, students will earn a certificate of completion. The certification can -- but doesn't have to -- be used for Yoga Alliance Registered continuing education or as credit toward one of our 200-hour registered teacher training programs. All classes will be taught by our advanced 500-hour yoga teachers. Class minimum enrollment is 6 students, maximum 10.
