Gentri Watson will be leading this training, and has completed 600 hours of teacher training in 2009 with Inbody Academy. Her style of yoga is a blend of the many teachings from a collection of today’s yoga wisdom keepers in addition to her own insights gained through life, love, loss and years of study and experience. She teaches grounded and creative classes with a focus on breath, strength and harnessing prana. Her desire to deepen her impact as a healer and a teacher inspired her to pursue education in massage therapy in 2015 and become a licensed massage therapist.
