The Yoga Immersion is for committed and curious yoga students who wish to take their practice to the next level in the company of like-hearted souls. During our 100 hour immersion we will dive deeply into the traditions and practices of yoga, connect with the fullness of ourselves and each other, and harvest the fruits of a dedicated practice.
In Immersion we will integrate the practices and wisdom from the yoga tradition to our daily lives where they can benefit our families and communities. By first attending the yoga immersion and deepening your practice, you will know if continuing 100 more hours on the Yoga Kula teacher training path is right for you.
