January 7| $.50
Our Immersion Program will run from January through June 2021. Read on for more information on this exceptional opportunity to deepen your practice in community with like-minded seekers.
We are currently accepting applications for 2021! While we hope to offer some of our 2021 immersion program in-person, we are beginning with a virtual training as necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Please review the program information below and send any questions you have to email@example.com.
Stepping into the Stream
Seattle Yoga Arts’ unique Immersion Program is the perfect opportunity to devote time to cultivating the inner wisdom that comes from dedicated practice and study. You will refine and fully embody your understanding of the alignment principles. You will consider Classical Yoga philosophy and explore in depth the Tantric philosophy that is the foundation of our practice. You will learn more about the anatomy of your amazing body and savor longer and deeper periods of practice including asana and meditation. Classes are a combination of practice, lecture and discussion. Join a group of fellow yoga nerds committed to self-discovery as we delve into the beauty and power of yoga. And if you decide to extend your studies with us – even if you’re not feeling called to teach – simply continue on through December with the teacher training portion of our program.
