The GAP: What is it?
This program is designed to fill in the gap between Teacher Training and actually teaching.

In Teacher Training you received an introduction to poses, language, different styles and so much more.  Now in The Gap we will give you the next step. A chance to go in depth and practice hands-on assists in an actual class, advanced poses, creative sequencing techniques, strategies for landing your first opportunities, and teaching actual classes on the schedule at ZYG. Put your skills to action in a classroom environment, build confidence, and feel prepared to teach an entire class by yourself!
