Anatomy and Asana Immersion
Cultivate a strong and informed asana practice by studying the asanas in detail, along with anatomy of the musculoskeletal system. Learn functional movement principles, build strength, and dive deep into your physical practice. We will also study Sanskrit and learn how to develop a home practice.

Craft your skills and fill your classes. Become a professional yoga teacher. In this immersion, in addition to practicing teaching, we will learn skills such as class sequencing, effective cueing, how to offer modifications for most bodies, and hands-on adjustments.
