The Advanced Studies Program will consist of 4 Online Modules that can be explored individually or taken as a whole and applied to certification as a 300 Hour Certified Yoga Teacher.  The program is designed to explore the depth of Power that this practice has to offer.


The Intention of this Program 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.
