Join Selena Garefino ERYT and team in beautiful Whitefish Montana this summer. Connect with nature, connect with your heart, and learn to share your love of yoga with the world. Training will be held in a stunning home in Whitefish Montana. On the 19th participants will celebrate the conclusion of training with a trip to Glacier National Park.
