The Dance Department of Mason Gross School of the Arts, in cooperation with Rutgers Recreation Services, and the Mason Gross Extension Division, is now offering 200-Hour Vinyasa Yoga Registered Teacher Training and Certification via the OM Factory Yoga Center, NYC.

OM Factory School of Yoga Teacher Training is a 200-hour yoga comprehensive teacher training designed for serious yoga practitioners interested in deepening their practice, as well as for aspiring teachers who want a toolkit to approach teaching with confidence.
