Full Description

Elements and Principles that guide basic alignment, Pranayama (breath work) and anatomy of the body. September 9th-11th.

We are opening the first weekend of the yoga teacher training up for those who want to personally improve their practice. This weekend immersion will empower any yoga practitioner to bring their practice to the next level. Learning the foundational principles of breath, movement, and anatomy will empower an individual to self correct any posture, move with fluid power and lightness and connect to the energy of a pose. Yoga is more then just a posture or fitness of the body, it is one's ability to utilize the correct tools to harness inner strength and structural integration, and access awareness of the self.

This is the first weekend of our teacher training program that we open up to everyone as it sets the empowering foundation that we move and transform from.
