As you participate in yoga classes, one-on-one sharing, group discussion, and journaling, you will tap your inner wisdom and learn to expand your yoga practice so it can positively affect every aspect of your life.

The weekend will end with a class-curated yoga flow, with every student contributing a segment to the sequencing. You will return home with the skills to redesign your robust personal practice again and again.
