Yoga Bloom Training is an educational and practical study for someone who wants to develop a deeper understanding of the practice beyond the basic asana class.

Yoga Bloom Training is designed to help direct each individual toward developing their own practice, and facilitating growth on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Becoming an authentic teacher is a process that relies on experience, maturity, self-exploration, and reflection. It is the purpose of Yoga Bloom Training explores a variety of ways of thinking about authenticity in teaching, from the perspective of scholar and practitioner.

Yoga Bloom is an in-depth training based on anatomy and biomechanics,  alignment principles from the Iyengar tradition, and Classical Chinese Medicine texts. Classes will include asana, pranayama, meditation, chanting, and personal inquiry for an engaging, challenging and transformative process.

Yoga Bloom is an intense and intimate training, limited to small groups, so in traditional style, each student is encouraged to develop in the way most appropriate to them. All are required to develop a personal practice incorporating the various tools of yoga.  This training is registered with the Yoga Alliance at the 200 and 300 hour level.

The courses will include a rigorous examination of asana through the lens of functional anatomy, breath, sequencing principles, adaptation and adjustment. Through this deeper inquiry, one develops the skills to adapt asana practice for a wide-range of populations and to meet the needs of individual students within a group context. YBT is beneficial for yoga students who want to intensify their practice and develop a deeper understanding of yoga and themselves.

Deep learning is a long, leisurely drink from a deep well of knowledge, rather than quick sips from many different wells. Deep learning suggests students will follow a stream of inquiry to the headwaters, rather than sampling sips from all directions. Embracing the Role of the Teacher is challenging beyond all expectation, shaking one to the root of body and soul, yet will transform one to become smoother and stronger.
