This training offers a comparative study of contemporary Hatha Yoga styles. You will study a variety of Vinyasa Flow styles, as well as BKS Iyengar alignment techniques. Our aim is to explore the inner/outer techniques of Vinyasa Krama, to reveal the spiritual path underlying the practice; learn the principles of subtle alignment, breath/bandhas/dristi, and the methodology that ties poses together into a seamless ‘moving meditation’; and the technology to stabilize the mind and glimpse at our true nature.
