An In-Depth Immersion in the Heart of Yoga

For all levels.

Yoga is not a linear process aimed toward a future goal. It is direct intimacy with life, and it is available to everyone. Mark Whitwell offers the advanced practices of yoga in a way that you can integrate and make your own, whether you are just beginning to practice or have years of experience. This program involves an interwoven promise: You promise to practice yoga and in return you receive the promise of yoga’s gifts—health, intimacy, well-being, and joy. In order to experience these benefits, your yoga practice must be adapted to you, not you to yoga.

With skillful and heartfelt guidance, Mark teaches principles of a personal home yoga practice in simple and easy-to-digest sessions. In this program, you

  • Explore the five principles of advanced personal practice
  • Dive into asana, pranayama, and meditation as a seamless process
  • Discover how yoga transforms life into an intimate celebration with everything
  • Experience the nurturing principle as a constant in your life from now on.

This program is a regenerative and joyful event sure to reverberate through your daily life in very practical ways. Return home with an embodied felt sense of your own enjoyable practice.

“You are the power of this cosmos arising as pure intelligence and utter beauty, in perfect intrinsic harmony with the entire cosmos. This is simply a fact. Yoga is your embrace of this fact.”
