Praxis Yoga recognises the importance for Yoga Teachers to continue their professional learning for three reasons:
- to keep knowledge and skills up to date
- to specialize in an area of developing interest
- to give importance to self-care – to establish, sustain and maintain a healthy approach in the role as Yoga teacher, and so to avoid burn-out
