Course Description

I want to introduce you to two powerful game changers for those traveling a yogic path-whether you are a new student or a skilled teacher.

One is a physical change: how to strengthen and improve your yoga practice by adding inversions and arm balances. I present simple and advanced techniques to help dismantle fear and personal limitations.

Secondly, this course fosters the deep and practical understanding of bhatki--the philosophy and motivation behind our yoga practice. To practice yoga can revolutionize the body, and for deeper understanding we explore the philosophy of bhakti: the yoga of love. As we move, work and play in this world, our devotion and ever-refining intention can revolutionize our lives. Includes incredible, noteworthy guest-speakers who are experts in yoga and yogic philosophy.

What are the requirements?

  • No pre-requisites
  • Show up prepared to move through some fears and listen with an open mind and heart
  • The physical classes are strong but approachable, made accessible for those who practice or are learning vinyasa yoga--from beginners to advanced students and teachers

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Strengthen and improve physical yoga practice
  • Introduce inversions and arm balances
  • Foster understanding of the Bhakti and the philosophy of yoga
  • Revolutionize a yoga practice from a physical, spiritual and philosophical perspective.

Who is the target audience?

  • Yoga students
  • Yoga teachers
