The mediocre teacher tells.
The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires.

– William Arthur Ward


We are delighted to launch our very frst 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Program


The program will cover and break down into detail the various elements that create the WOOM
Yoga Experience. Primarily, a deep dive into the physical and esoteric aspects of yoga and
sound, and how to integrate them into one cohesive transformative practice.
The program will be led by WOOM Yoga Director Francesca Bove and co-founders Elian and
David Zach-Shemesh. Together with the studio’s brilliant faculty (aka, The Dream Team), a
panel of visiting lecturers (aka, The Guest Stars), and our group of devoted mentors (aka, The
Spirit Guides), participants will acquire skills and tools to efectively hold space and share yoga
and sound in meaningful ways, both in private and collective settings.
