You will be required to make up missed time according to the curriculum and guidelines set forth by the instructor(s).

    We do encourage enrolling in the entire program as it will prove to be a progressive, spiritual growth – one month building on the next.

    Your fee will allow you access to our interactive, private Facebook group.. This page will offer you social networking – Sutra Discussion and philosophical insight from everyone enrolled in this course.

    We will provide props for you to use but you are encouraged to bring what you need.

    You will be spending time inside, outside, moving and sitting still. Therefore please bring snacks you need, water you want, tea or whatever else will make you feel comfortable. Additionally, we recommend to bring layered clothing so we can be prepared for temperature fluctuations.

    Bring a journal and whatever other mode of documenting you would like.


    Below are some questions that we recommend you review and answer prior to attending our training. They are not required and are only for your review and contemplation. Our intention with this training is to allow instructors and/or practitioners the time and space necessary to find passion in their yoga practice. Asking themselves why they love yoga and then why they want to bring yoga to others. We believe that when a yoga instructor is passionate and understands the root of that passion – they can then facilitate that same passion from their students. Along our path of discovery, growth and transformation, we have the opportunity to change our thinking patterns, limiting beliefs and thought processes. This is a process that requires reflection and honest self-communication. We encourage you to read and reflect on these questions at the beginning of the training and then revisit them at the end. Use additional paper if necessary or use this as your first entry in your journal.

    • What brought you to yoga? What inspires you each day to practice or teach others? What are your top 5 passions in life?
    • Who would you be if you were living to your Highest Self? When we embark on a “spiritual” journey we are faced with our selves – open and honestly. What have you found out about yourself that you would like to improve upon that will bring you to your Highest Self?
    • Many individuals during their lifetime develop thought patterns or beliefs that either work or do not work for their quest for inner peace. Can you define thought patterns or beliefs that may inhibit your growth to your Highest Self? How can you change that pattern of thinking and/or replace it with something that is more in alignment with Who You Are?
    • What are some of the major obstacles you have encountered in your practice and what is most present right now? How do you resolve these obstacles?
    • Often, we talk about taking your practice “off your mat”. Give an example of when this made sense to you. How would you convey that to your class?
