We have had regular training for Kids Yoga teachers throughout the island and there are now many of our teachers in schools and community centers. We also now have three Centers for Applied Neohumanism (CAN), in Southern, Central and Northern Taiwan. The latter place is about 50 acres, and will be operational by September this year. It will be similar to the Prama Center in Asheville, but for Neohumanism activities. We will have regular classes and programs in all three locations.
