9 months of transformation
blue lotus yoga immersion and teacher training intensive
September through May, annually
The depth and breadth of yoga cannot be experienced in a day, a week, or a year. It is a journey traveled over the course of a lifetime. 9 months of transformation is designed to show you more than a series of postures and how to teach them. Rather, it is our intention to help you find your own sadhana, your own truth, through a process of inquiry as unique as you.
This training is a journey of self-study and practice — and exploration of your own thoughts, emotions and world views. And as you cultivate that inner awareness, you will perhaps come to see that only by living in the heart can we truly thrive — in work, play, relationships; as a student, as a teacher.
We hope you’ll join us as we dive deep into the flow of grace that is Vinyasa yoga, and rest peacefully in the stillness of the Yin practices.
