Program

Program

Ready to take the next step into your practice? Kootenay Yoga School has prepared one of the most comprehensive Teacher Training available in the yoga world, a unique fusion of styles bound together by my passion for the practice. The style you will learn is very complete. The training focuses on developing a strong personal practice first, Kootenay Yoga School will implement the Ashtanga Vinyasa Mysore style of practice for this purpose.

Kootenay Yoga School has incorporated the valuable influence of Maty Ezraty’s alignment concepts. You will also learn Universal Yoga’s arm asana, developed by Mahayogui Andrey Lappa, arm asana is missing from all other styles of the practice of yoga. The teaching is complemented with The Dance of Shiva, also from the universal yoga system, a practice to develop neuron connections and IQ. This fusion gives birth to what Kootenay Yoga School calls Infinity Yoga.

What will you learn?
