More about Principle Based Partner Yoga:

Principle-Based Partner Yoga™ is a visionary healing art that combines ancient Yogic wisdom with modern mind/body understanding. The training is designed not just for Yoga teachers, but for everyone (minimum one year Yoga practice) interested in an in depth exploration of Partner Yoga.

Currently the only in-depth Partner Yoga course available, this 25hr training is an opportunity to develop skills in this unique healing art –an art that expands the traditional practice of Yoga into the realm of relationship and authentic connection with others.

Partner Yoga is not a substitute for individual Yoga practice– it is an accelerated path to experience directly the root principle of Yoga – union. It deepens and sensitizes our individual practice while awakening our direct experience of how we are all intimately connected. This training will deeply inspire your practice and your life while providing tools to expand personally and professionally.

The purpose of this course is to empower individuals with the skills and confidence needed to share Partner Yoga with others while accelerating their own understanding of Yoga.

A comprehensive training Manual is provided at the training.
