Uncover New Dimensions of Your Practice

As you uncover new dimensions of practice. You’re not only deepen your physical practice, but you will be able to connect with parts of your life that you hadn’t seen before.

Explore the Richness of Yoga

I’m sure you’ve heard Yoga is more than the physical. But the fact is, that can be discover when you’re only ever in an asana class. We’ll have the time to explore the richness of exactly what yoga can offer.

Build Incredible Friendships

Build incredible friendships around a shared passion. I feel so fortunate for the yoga friends I’ve made through trainings. It’s a unique shared bond and a powerful sense of community.

You’re Ready for Change

You’re ready for change. Odds are you will not be the same person after your graduate. Trainings ignite change and teach you how to listen in a deep, intuitive way.

Make Sense of this World

You’ll become acquainted with some of the oldest, most meaningful philosophical texts. Yoga is so much more about how to live in and make sense of this world than how to touch your toes.

Share Yoga With Others

You want to share yoga with others. And, there’s no better way than to learn how to teach it.

Hold Space & Be Present

You want to learn how to hold space and be present. These life skills are yoga skills, and learning how will make you a better partner, professional, parent, friend, family member, human. I think we can all agree, being truly present in conversation is exactly what the world needs more of.

More is better!

More is better! I have found repeatedly: the more I learn, the more I understand, the more rewarding and exciting my practice continues to be.
