This unique program offers a highly individualized and experiential approach to our exploration of asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra, anatomy & the subtle body and much, much more. For those who are seeking to teach or are interested in delving deeper into all aspects of yoga this program will lead you on a powerful and transformative journey thru the winter and into the spring. We seek to cultivate the learning and experience that informs skilled and intuitive teachers who recognize the worth and importance of their own voice and are confident in its message.

We will practice every weekend together, some Fridays and Sundays, and all Saturdays beginning with pranayama and ending with meditation. Our long weekend days will begin in the late morning with practice and will then lead to the study of history and lineages, philosophy, mantra, chanting, meditation, kriyas, subtle and gross anatomy, and concepts of the universe and the self. We will break for a few hours in the afternoon and then return until the evening so that we can maintain our attention and focus.

We will practice Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative along with various forms of meditation. As we learn our focus is continually to incorporate yoga into our daily lives in its various forms. Each student who desires to receive the certification will lead us in asana, pranayama, and meditation.

Informed and inspired by traditional lineages our emphasis is on realizing, cultivating, and refining each participant’s own innate teaching style. We will instruct on verbal cues and language, class construction and sequencing, hands on adjustments, modifications, therapeutic essentials, and applied Ayurveda. Our graduates are prepared to teach authentic, creative, highly individualized, and well-rounded Vinyasa classes to all levels of students. Their certificates are recognized and sealed by the Yoga Alliance.

All levels of practitioners welcome.
