EMBODYOGA® 100 Hour In-Depth Yoga Study Immersion Program


This immersion is a gateway to personal transformation. If you want to significantly deepen your yoga practice, understand and experience the layers of your Self more fully, this immersion is for you. It is the first 100 hours of the 200 hour teacher training.  Open to yoga students and teachers of all traditions.

Through inquiry, love, acceptance (santosha) and clear discernment (viveka), Embodyoga®approaches the study of consciousness through our bodies; and the study of our bodies through consciousness. Experience directly the movement of consciousness through all the layers of your being by inquiring into the support of organs, glands, body systems and prana flow.

Discover “whole–body–support” templates for strong, graceful, joyful and injury free practice and teaching. Learn to weave postures, breath and movement into progressive depths of experience. Experience directly the grace and wisdom of the body-mind-spirit in movement and in stillness. Develop a depth and beauty in your yoga practice that is felt internally, is evident to the eye and remains constant when you step off the mat and into the world around you.
