Learn two Sacred Geometry Vinyasa sequences with variations and modifications for ability and injury, as well as functional mobility, handstand protocols from total beginner to press handstand and in-depth breathwork and meditation training.
+ Asana (Yoga Postures)
Master the basics to develop a strong practice and guide others – "learn your dog, dude." Know what a shoulder is supposed to do in Chaturanga, why how fold your body affects your knee, and a thousand more such basics that every teacher needs to know. More than learning postures, you will learn how to connect concepts across a practice to maximize healing and minimize injury.

+ Morning Sacred Geometry Asana Intensives
These are the heart of the training. In a small group setting we will use variable techniques to ensure that you understand and the concepts essential to therapeutic and invigorating practice. The sequences will be used as the framework for dissection and expansion of postures and principles, and while you're warm, we'll get you assisting each other.
+ Pranayama (Breathing Practices)
A personal Sadhana (practice) makes you powerful. Learn to go inside to come out stronger.
+ Dhyana (Meditation Practices)
+ Kriyas (Yogic Cleansing & Empowerment Practices)
+ Active Mobility : crucial for both long-term health and skill development. This aspect of the training is a combination of evolved flexibility and strength work plus Functional Range Conditioning.
