You'll learn to teach and guide practices that develop inward focus, concentration, insight and attunement to Spirit:

  • Learn to connect with your students, making each class a co-creation.
  • Let go of rigid forms using organic movement to release deep-seated tensions.
  • Develop awareness and compassion through
    prolonged holding.
  • Respond to your body's messages through
    intuitive movement.
  • Surrender to the flow of prana within.
  • Practice Teach a 3-stage Kripalu Yoga class.
  • End the workshop with a half-day Sadhana Retreat.

You'll explore the language and techniques to support your students in safely experiencing the healing integration that can develop through these deeper practices. And you'll have the opportunity to practice-teach these methods with a small group of your peers.

Our spacious schedule allows for beach-time, just steps away from the hotel.
