Techniques, Training and Practice: You will study in-depth the asanas (poses), subtle aspects of breath (pranayama) and body awareness. You will gain a deeper understanding of the vital energy centers of the body (chakras), layers of the body (koshas). You will establish your own personal practices of Asana, Pranayama, Mediation, and Living the Wisdom. This is the beginning of deepening your relationship to Yoga on and off the mat.

Yoga Anatomy & Physiology: You will learn anatomy and physiology relevant to Yoga and Ayurveda; nervous, immune, lymphatic, respiratory, circulatory, digestive, muscular and skeletal systems, how the body functions and begin to dig deeper into the layers of your own being with a focus on exploring your personal Dharma through yoga. All of which will strengthen your ability to skillfully teach students.

Our focus is on the essence of holistic living. You will explore what kind of yoga teacher you want to be, learn how to hold space and communicate effectively.
