ABOUT: The VBY AS Teacher Training is structured as  Five 5-day Modules designed to explore the depth of Power that this practice has to offer.  See Details and Applications page for Dates & Registration Information.

STRUCTURE: VBY AS Teacher Training is Designed around the structure of the Five Koshas.  Each module will explore one of the Koshas in depth.  We will explore the significance and subtle aspects of each Kosha and it's relevance to an empowered practice of Yoga. 

INTENT: The Intention of VBY AS Teacher Training is to give voice to the aspects of our practice that are challenging to articulate.  Through a variety of tools, experiments, study, and communication, the training explores the deep and intimate uncovering of the highest expression of Self as well as the obstacles and patterns that stand in the way it.  Together we will cultivate a warrior's heart as we stand in our truth, deepen our practice, and grow to our greatest potential.
