This seven month course is designed for Yoga practitioners who wish to deepen their practice by experiencing Yoga as a complete study that incorporates both the physical “asana” practice with yogic lifestyle techniques, (pranayama breath control, yogic diet, ethics and morality) as well as yogic philosophical study and meditation. Major emphasis will also be put on how to actually “teach” or share the practice of yoga including giving adjustments, sequencing, healing, and verbal queuing. The course also includes a mountain retreat which will give students a chance to deepen their practice with the power of nature.
Upon completion of this course and all requirements you will become certified at the 200-hour level of yoga instruction, and eligible to apply for registration with the Yoga Alliance. (course currently pending YA approval)
