Thousand Petals YOGA IMMERSION PROGRAM 2016-17
What is the Immersion Program?
A six-weekend experience designed for dedicated students of all levels to explore the heart of yoga. This program is not a teacher training, but a pre-requisite for joining the Thousand Petals Yoga Teacher Training Program that will begin in the Fall of 2017. For one weekend a month, we will delve into the many aspects of yoga: asana, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, ayurveda, anatomy, & more. This is an opportunity to connect with like-minded community members while exploring the multifaceted limbs of yoga. Please join us in the profound experience of moving into the gateway of the heart, recognizing its mystery and its power.
