Take Your Yoga Off the Mat!
The practice of yoga has changed my life. Asana was the gateway for me. It is was my entrance to the deeper layers of this ancient practice. Maybe you can relate.
In this course I share what I have learned over the past 15 years. It is my intention to invite you into a deeper conversation about how this practice might be one of liberation in your own life through many different tools.
If you are curious to go a little deeper, I invite you to join me on a journey into the subtle body, yoga philosophy and how yoga can change your life; your relationship to yourself, your work, this planet and all beings.
This online course will give you the opportunity to deepen your yoga practice off the mat. Yoga is about making the unconscious, conscious. It is a system to remove the obstacles that might be standing in our way of liberation.
Every time you participate in this course you will learn something new about yourself and refine the skills needed to live authentically with compassion for yourself and others. You will understand a little more each time what it means to be fully alive.
