Be Bold
P O R T L A N D 

A Teacher Training & Personal Empowerment Program


If you do BBTT, expect to find a power in yourself that you always had but couldn’t access. Oh, and you meet and become best friends with the best people. You’ll finish training and miss every second of it!
— Nicole B | BBTT 2019 at WVPY

Be Bold is an opportunity to transform how you relate to the world. Whether you want to deepen your yoga practice, gain tools to lead a powerful life, become a yoga teacher (or a combo of all three!) this training will take you on a journey of self-discovery using meditation, asana and inquiry. You will learn skills and tools essential to Be Bold in your life and gain insight into what constrains or keeps you from your best possible self.
