Yoga Immersion Is the process of gathering with yogis, who, like you, are craving a bit more than what you might gain from a couple of classes a week. Embracing the path of Yoga, and cultivating a life in which you enjoy the greater benedictions of yoga. Once monthly we will gather to deepen our understanding and share our appreciation for yoga. Join us from this coming September 2017 to March 2018, as our great community embarks on this great Yoga journey. Immersion isn't only yoga asana practice, but rather, Immersion connects all limbs yoga to help you establish a profound, life-affirming, and life long practice. Immersion is the perfect method to infuse more yoga into your life. And, if you are planning on becoming a teacher, Immersion is the first prerequisite to taking the Teacher Training.
