The Next Step: Yoga Deep Immersion Program and Schedule


Program 1

Module 1: About Asana - the 8 limb system

Whether you want to become a teacher or not it is important to become a focused student. Yoga takes a degree of discipline of practice and a desire to delve deeper into the workings of the body, mind, spirit and heart. This module will prepare you for Module 2 or you can take the "Going Deeper" - Transpersonal Yoga Program.

Saturday January 29, 2011 - Sunday November 20, 2011

This program can be done as a personal journey or you can use it to work towards becoming a teacher. You can involve yourself in parts of the program or do it all whether you want to be a teacher or not. Please see below for details or call..
