The Student Immersion Program

If you're ready to take your yoga practice to the next level, the Student Immersion may be the choice for you.  The Student Immersion will allow you to not only expand your physical practice, but also encourage you to take your yoga off the mat and more into your life.  You'll challenge your body as we break down and delve deeper into the yoga postures, and you'll challenge your mind with the study of yoga philosophy and meditation.

Taking this step in your yoga practice will re-ignite a passion for life and help you find a greater sense of calm and joy in all that you do.  As well, you'll have the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who may turn into lifelong friends.  We'll meet for one weekend and the session will include the practice of asana, pranayama and meditation, as well as presentations and discussions all designed to educate, inspire and encourage you toward your best self through yoga.

What students say about the Student Immersion Weekend.

Below is what students have to say about the Student Immersion weekend:

"I enjoyed the weekend and learned a good amount about the history of yoga and a lot about alignment--inner and outer."

"Great intro to a teacher training environment."

"I am so grateful to have the opportunity to 'go deeper' with yoga with out having to commit to an expensive teacher training or retreat. This is PERFECT for me and a huge value to the community! I loved setting aside a whole weekend to focus on only this one thing. It was wonderful. I intend to attend as many of these as my resources allow."

"I LOVED was a great balance of activity with information along with being relaxing all in one...not easy to do!!!"

"There was nothing that stood out that I wanted to change. The program fit what I was looking for!"

"I value the opportunity to have participated in program, the fact that it exists. I have been practicing for about 5 years, so I love the idea of taking my practice to another level without needing to do a teacher training, since I'm not interested in that (yet...maybe someday!)."
