Immersion into Yogic studies is a profound and beneficial life changing experience.
In this training, you will be taught the traditional teachings of Hatha Yoga, functional anatomy and alignment to safely create vinyasa classes and learn how to create yoga sequences for your own practice, including ways to plan classes and design sequences guided by the Ayurvedic principles.
Immerse yourself for 28 days at our seaside eco-retreat center. Classes, accommodations, organic locally sourced farm to table meals are included; your only responsibility once you arrive is to leave the outside world behind to take in, absorb, and live the teachings of yoga.
