An opportunity to join a special group of both aspiring and experienced yoga teachers and serious students who are ready to deepen their practice and transform themselves into more effective and creative yoga therapy teachers.
Bhakti means devotion to something higher than just ourselves. Whether it be toward a relationship, a family, a community, future generations or all beings, bhakti is essentially the development of compassion, love, gratitude and equanimity.
Vinyasa Krama means to move skillfully with the breath. It is a set of principles that can help us accept where we are now so that we can move with integrity, from one posture to the next in a Vinaysa flowing sequence, toward optimal well-being.
These intensive yoga teacher trainings will inspire or re-inspire the fundamentals of vinyasa flow yoga with a devotional aspect that will awaken the heart to love and peace. Students looking to become teachers, students who are currently teachers with or without previous training, or students simply having the desire to deepen their practice, will find this course inspiring and practical.
