Further Info

This immersion is for everyone from newcomers to seasoned practitioners. There are 3 teachers, and we are using zoom, which means we can divide the group up for technique classes if needed to ensure that everyone gets what they need.

What you will need:
Yoga mat Zoom (it is free) Internet connection For asana classes we would like your full frame to be visible Yoga clothing that stays in place – light colours work best on zoom An open mind Attendance While this training will be recorded, the modules build on each other. It is recommended that you attend all sessions in person. It is easier to keep up than it is to catch up. However, we understand that the best laid plans sometimes don’t work. Please contact us, in advance, if you may miss a module, and we will discuss.

Yoga Alliance CEU’s/CPD
If you want Yoga Alliance CEU’s, you must attend all modules in person. This immersion qualifies for 25 Yoga Alliance CEU’s.

Cameras
In order to assist you, please keep your cameras on and set your mat up in a well lit spot.
