Living the Yoga – an online immersion for truth seekers, light bringers & world changers
For thirteen years, we offered a 285-hour teacher training and yoga immersion program called 9 Months of Transformation. At this moment in history, we feel that what our world needs is more dedicated yoga practitioners, not necessarily more newly-minted yoga teachers who are looking for teaching opportunities that no longer exist in the abundance they once did.
To that end, we are in the process of pulling the best of our original program, creating new content and redesigning a true immersion experience- without the teaching component- for dedicated students to explore the depth of yoga, philosophy, self-study and community.
Keep an eye out for more details, coming soon! Living the Yoga, Part I will begin February 2022. Living the Yoga, Part II is slated for September 2022. We hope you’ll join us!

How demanding is the training?
Even if there were no outside readings, assignments or class attendance to be completed, committing to a program of self-study is an intense experience. Dedicating yourself to a daily practice, regular study, class attendance, and an entire weekend every month is no small endeavor and should not be undertaken lightly. If you have undergone a personal tragedy in the past six months to a year, we strongly suggest postponing training until next year.
What will I learn in the course?
Like most endeavors, you will get as much out of the course as you invest into it. Our intention behind offering this yoga immersion runs deep, for at its core, yoga is a way to help you reach your fullest potential. Through the process of deep and honest self-study, discipline, and surrender, we expand our minds and hearts. Precepts of the program are creating community, developing self-awareness, and living authentically. For this reason, it is wise for you to be clear about your intention for embarking on the journey. Practically speaking, you will:
• cultivate self-care and create a balanced home practice
• study asana, as well as pranayama, meditation techniques, and chanting/use of mantra
• understand the art and science of sequencing poses for safety and optimal energetic flow
• explore practical anatomy & physiology (including alignment, pose modifications, and posture assisting) as well as energetic anatomy
• study the philosophy of yoga, according to Patanjali, as a guideline for living a full and joyful life
• experience extended practice sessions and recap with course instructors
• explore and learn the importance of good studentship and concentrated practice
