Become a Yoga Shaman

Optional Earth-based Teachings and YTT in the Mountains Opportunities

The study of yoga begins with the present moment, in the vessel of the body. We discover the secrets and decode the mystery of the yogic path from the inside-out, not the outside-in. Through asana and pranayama practice, various forms of meditation and chanting, study of energetic hygiene and intuitive development and more, we cleanse and purify the body, emotional body, mind and spirit. In addition to these practices students are exposed to elemental / shamanic techniques to help re-establish connection with the natural world, of which we are a part.

Sacred Living Sweat Lodge

While not part of the actual 300 Hour YTT curriculum hours, monthly sweat lodges and earth-based studies including a short vision quest are offered as a method of purification and connection to assist us in our transformational journey. Additional fee.
