Full Bio & Programs
For students with min. 6 months yoga or meditation experience.
We practice yoga for many reasons, and our practice does not disappoint us. It brings health, vitality, a sense of well-being, strength, and flexibility. In its earliest stages of development, yoga was created as a path to the soul. It was designed to lead to the direct experience of spirit inside us.
In this retreat for experienced practitioners, we look at applications of asana, pranayama, and meditation that have been lost from many traditions—techniques that were once central to yoga practice as a path to the mystery within. We focus on techniques that can easily be taken home and incorporated into a daily practice for everyone aspiring to a more spiritual yoga experience.
This program includes
- Morning practice just for our group
- The study of ancient yoga symbols and stories that hold meaningful secrets
