Customized Continuing Education for Individuals & Groups


After offering annual Yoga Training/In-Depth Study Courses at Breathing Room Center with Cheryl Paulson and Paula Tepedino for many years, we have now decided to offer more customized course study programs! These programs can now be offered almost exclusively online to fit into your busy lives, and you can pick them up at any time – no need to wait for a particular start date. Now that’s convenient! 

Contact us today to discuss what you’re passionate about learning, and we’ll help you make it happen! Learning may be individualized or take place in groups, depending on interest/timing. We use a high-tech video/audio webinar service that allows a classroom of people to interact with one another, have turns speaking, seeing Power Point visuals, observe facilitators and material and have access to recorded sessions. Upon completion of all requirements of your particular program, you can teach and help others, or just choose to learn the information.
