Dear HappyTree Community,

In true Spring style, we had an exciting time of new beginnings and growth last semester, with our first Yoga for Children Teacher Training and bilingual Yin Yoga Teacher Training, as well as our expanded Prenatal Series, Mom (or Dad!) & Baby Yoga, Family Yoga and Birthing Workshops.

Don’t forget that throughout the summer, our popular Prenatal Series and Mom (or Dad!) & Baby Series will continue and we are offering a summer Yoga Birthing Workshop on Sunday, July 17th for our expectant moms & dads! To follow our new Summer Schedule, click here.

It’s hard to believe that we are wrapping up our 2016 Hatha Teacher Training…
“I can proudly say that taking the 200-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training at HappyTree was the best decision I’ve ever made. It changed my life, introduced me to some amazing people and reconnected me with my yoga practice.”
– Mitzi Perez, HYTT student class of 2016
