The training takes place 1 day a week for 23 weeks between October and April. This will allow you lean at a comfortable pace, and allow for more time to assimilate the theory, put it into personal practice and come prepared for the next day of training with your questions and observations.
The program format will be presentations on theory, history, anatomy, and include guided practices, hands-on teaching and partner work. Participants are expected to review the material and practice at home in the time between training days, so that questions and observations can be discussed in the following training day.
Enjoy free, ample parking, access to yoga props, complimentary tea, and lunch will be provided with a cooking demo of foods that support the yoga lifestyle and philosophy.
