OVERVIEW:

Space is limited to only 20 participants, so we advise pre-registration to hold your space for the upcoming spring program. Whether your intention is to teach or further develop your personal yoga practice, we invite all serious yogis to apply.

The concentrated areas of study include the philosophy of yoga; exploration of ancient texts such as the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads, and the Yoga Sutras of Patañjali; anatomy and physiology, covering extensively both the physical and energetic body; Asanas (yoga postures); meditation; breathwork; mudra; and mantra. Asana will be broken down minutely and examined individually from standing and seated poses, to twists, arm balances, inversions and backbends. Also, different yoga sequences will be taught with a concentration on Sun and Moon Salutations.
