October 9-11, November 13-15 & December 4-6, 2020

As adults we often lose the excitement of a learning environment after leaving formalized schooling. The study of yoga can awaken a desire to stimulate our minds with the vast and ancient tradition of Yoga and more fully honor its magnificent breadth and potential.

Since 2002, 8 Limbs has provided life-changing Yoga Teacher Training programs. This fall we will offer the core curriculum of our time-tested Modular Teacher Training Program*to the general public in three immersive weekends.

The eight-limbed path of yoga will be our guide as we dive into the following topics:
Yogic Philosophy & Principles
Asana – Types, Principles & Sequencing
History of Yoga
The Subtle Body – Pranayama, Koshas, Chakras & Nadis

Take your yoga practice to a deeper level through intensive study with others on the path.

An important aspect of Chiara’s teaching is to help students learn when – and from where – to stabilize or mobilize.
