Progressive Modular Design for Deep Learning

We understand a yoga practice grows through studying and applying the techniques of yoga over an extended period of time. We have learned through our committed personal practice and our experience as full-time teachers that the practice evolves more easily in a safe environment that facilitates growing at a steady pace. We have seen this first hand in ourselves and in the students who have participated in our teacher training programs. Because we would like to provide opportunities for all students to enjoy the benefits of a deeper practice, we have created a program that helps you grow your practice at a safe pace.

Our program includes all aspects of yoga, so you will enjoy learning and applying yoga philosophy, chanting, mudras, pranayama and meditation techniques from teachers who have been practicing these techniques steadily over time. Of course, you will also gain a detailed understanding of a wide range of postures as well as how to practice and sequence them safely. Because you have time to practice in-between our advanced study sessions you can really notice the effects that the different practices have on your system. You also have plenty of opportunities to ask questions to clarify your practice.

Our Program is Unique

  • You deepen your practice at a safe pace over time
  • You learn a consistent and principled approach to yoga
  • You explore intelligent ways of practicing
  • You receive individual feedback on your practice
  • You practice the complete spectrum of yoga, not only postures or a specific series

How Does It Work?

The seeds of learning are planted during our sessions together. For those seeds to sprout, take root and grow they need your attention through home study and daily practice. As it is explained in the yoga philosophy, yoga works gradually through dedication, detachment from goals and according to our level of commitment. We suggest around 1 hour of daily practice combined with 2 to 3 hours of exploration and reflection of philosophy in between sessions.

  • Each session offers you a manageable amount of information, instruction, exploration and practice.
  • Each Deep Study session is balanced and includes all aspects of yoga to facilitate deep learning.
  • You receive our comprehensive manual including all techniques covered.
  • We suggest an appropriate home practice that you tailor according to your needs and time availability during the interval between meetings.
  • When we meet again, we continue our ongoing dialogue.
  • Since we live in your community, we are available to answer your questions in between Deep Study sessions.
  • And, of course, you can also attend workshops and classes at the studio.

Weekend Training Sessions

Our Deep Integrated Yoga Studies meet once every 2-3 weeks for a weekend.
  • Fridays from 6pm to 9pm
  • Saturdays from 1pm to 7pm
  • Sundays from 1pm to 7pm

    "I, like most people, am a multi-media learner, so the combination of reading, discussing, watching, and doing was an excellent approach. Combined with the repetition of key ideas, I felt thoroughly oriented by the end of the year."

Grow with a Group of Peers

Our program spans the length of a year from January through December. Since our programs start and end at specific times every participant shares in a common body of knowledge, making it easier to create a steady progression conducive to structuring a firm foundation for your personal practice. We see this program as an ongoing dialogue where it is important to have a consistent group of peers. There are several benefits from this approach:

  • You participate in a community of learners that fosters consolidating your knowledge through interactions with your peers
  • You develop a common language that facilitates exploring deeper concepts and techniques because everybody in the group develops familiarity with the material studied
  • You grow at a safe pace, because you have time to practice before moving forward
    The ongoing dialogue from session to session helps you compare notes and benefit from multiple perspectives
  • You have a complete network of support that includes your teachers and your peers

Invest in Your Transformation

We feel passionately about keeping yoga accessible while maintaining great quality and value. We take pride in our work and can assure you that it is highly unlikely that you can find a program with the depth and breadth of our program. Furthermore, even if you could, the cost would not be as competitive as ours. We know because the main focus of our program is not profit but our commitment to expanding the reach of authentic yoga.
