Year-Long Weekend Program Begins August 2013!
The Foundational Yoga Teacher Training values all yogic traditions and teachings. This program is a 300-hour interdisciplinary yoga course encompassing many aspects of the yoga practice. Every individual in the training will be accepted for where they are in their practice at the present moment. It’s not necessary to achieve every yoga posture in order to be a good teacher; the only requirement is a sincere desire for yoga, which is eternal happiness.
In addition, we have found that many attend teacher training for a myriad of reasons other than becoming a yoga teacher. A spiritual training such as this may acutely deepen or awaken ones own spiritual practice, enhance a chosen career path or inspire to intuitively discover ones passion and purpose in life. The community and bonding of the group can be described as uniquely delicious and infinitely orgasmic. Simply put, "it is a once in a life time experience". Please inquire how this might be for you and talk to others who have gone before you...read more»
