Full Description

This program offers students in-depth skills to explore Yoga as a vehicle for vibrant health, self-transformation, and personal empowerment. Our curriculum includes a unique blend of alignment based vinyasa flow, a solid foundation in Hatha Yoga and 200 hours of instruction offered within a therapeutic framework. The instruction will cover a wide range of yoga techniques including yoga postures, anatomy, relaxation, breath awareness, pranayama, meditations to calm the mind, contemplations to transform limiting tendencies into life affirming thought patterns, and the instruction of clear principles of alignment to create safety, balance and freedom in yoga poses. Students explore concepts from Ayurveda, the Upanishads, Patanjali and the Chakra System as frameworks for the application of yoga as a journey towards radiant health and wellbeing. The asana emphasis includes both level one/two alignment based vinyasa flow sequencing as well as gentler and restorative variations. Rather than offer standard sequencing or rigid methodologies, students are exposed to frameworks that inspire each trainee to adapt the practices, awaken their creativity and find their own authentic voice as a teacher. Graduates of this program feel empowered to teach a variety of yoga class types, including: all levels vinyasa yoga, alignment-based classes, beginners, senior, gentle, and restorative.

If you have a love and passion for yoga, then you are welcome to participate, whether it is with the desire to deepen your own personal yoga practice or with the intention to teach yoga to others.

Join us and expect to:
• Deepen your practice and transform your life through yoga!
• Bring balance and clarity into your life.
• Fine-tune your asana through a deeper understanding of biomechanical alignment principles.
• Gain insights into your (true) nature through the wisdom of yoga and its philosophy.

• Build self-confidence and tap into your amazing potential in a supportive, nurturing environment.
