Each student will leave this 200 hour intensive with practical knowledge of 45 traditional poses, embodied practice designing sequences, and the confidence to inspire students to love their bodies through the practice of yoga. Our time during the intensive training will be grounded in meditation and applying the philosophy and practice of yoga to our daily lives. Each student will have the opportunity to practice teaching small groups. This transformative 15-day intensive will open doors of perception and catalyze shifts in the way we relate to ourselves, each other and our yoga practice.
This course will include daily yoga and meditation practice, asana and pranayama labs, and a variety of workshops designed to help you gain the knowledge and confidence to lead students in asana classes and workshops of your own.

The most important thing you can do to prepare for this intensive is cultivate your personal yoga practice. Spend time on your mat. Try on-line pre-recorded classes, join a live on-line course (I can send my schedule of Zoom classes), or just spread our your mat and explore what feels good in your body. Set aside 15 minutes every day for the practice of yoga. We will also send links to pre-recorded video content that we want you to watch before you join us in the end of July. After you watch each video we will ask you to devote 10 minutes to a writing exercise that will deepen your knowledge of what was covered.
