    *ROAD TRIP GUEST TEACHER WEEKEND in Minneapolis at Devanadi Yoga
    July 12-14, 2019 make-up option in MPLS also available

    We realize that travel can be tricky, but every single student in our last Fargo TT group overwhelmingly suggested we keep the Road Trip Guest Weekend as they loved the experience, felt a deeper connection to Devanadi, and got a chance to study with expert teachers IN PERSON that are not able to travel to Fargo at this point. We will discuss options and details for this part of your training during weekend 1. We DO have many students in the Twin Cities that are often able to host you, plus it’s FUN!
