100 Hour Immersion

Our 100-Hour 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.

Participants will receive in-depth instruction in asana, biomechanics, alignment, applied anatomy, core yogic texts, various philosophical lineages and traditions, meditation techniques, pranayama, mantra, and yoga therapeutics.
