A wonderful month of TriYoga programs with John and Stephanie in Kiev, Ukraine completed on March 10. Beginning with the inauguration of the first TriYoga Center in Ukraine, the full schedule featured 125 hours total of Basics and Level 1 Teacher Training, four TriYogathons, and workshops for Pre-Natal and Level 2.
There is great enthusiasm and excitement among the Kiev TriYoga family! The TriYoga center is bringing this wonderful community even closer, with over 500 total in attendance for the month. John and Stephanie were extremely impressed with the dedication, integrity, and sincerity of the teachers and students and with the quality of their Flow.
