Understanding to body from the inside out gives you an intimate view of your students and their struggles. You will verbally dissect the human body in relation to western and eastern anatomy. You will explore the body systems and organs as well as chakras, nadis, koshas. and vayus.

Yoga philosophy, lifestyle, and ethics

You will be immersed in yogic living from the moment you meet to begin this journey. As the training progresses, you will discuss philosophy and ethics from the yoga teacher’s perspective focusing on Patanjali's "Eight Limb Path of Yoga".


The best way to become a yoga teacher is to teach yoga. You will begin practice teaching on October 13. With a lot of support and love, each of you will teach from where you are and open yourself to the feedback from your peers who are on this journey with you. Discussions on the business aspects of yoga will come near the end of your immersion.
