This Training was developed with an appreciation and desire to honor the wisdom and breadth of the spiritual tradition of Yoga. It is important to carry on tradition and provide an opportunity for yogis to practice and share the extraordinary teachings in a supportive and nurturing environment. This ease and flexibility works for modern lifestyles and bridges some of the gaps between theory and practice, between practicing on the mat and practicing in the world, and between learning and living as a whole.
We will develop a community to share this profound practice of Yoga as a comprehensive and life-affirming tradition.
