You are not alone!
The way the Yoga ‘industry’ is set up tends to emphasize short, shallow ‘certifications’. After starting to teach, many teachers find they lack confidence in what they know, or feel unprepared to guide others in practice. In discovering how much they don’t know, the path to authentic deepening of their Yoga is also not obvious.
Which begets the question: how to study Yoga in a deep and meaningful way?
This is why we created Deepen Your Yoga. This 16-month program for Yoga Practitioners is designed to help you develop a solid foundation for your personal practice as well as actualize it in your daily living and relationships with others. The real result of this training is you moving toward your most authentic and balanced self through Yoga’s tools.
This is a program of substance and depth that will allow you to discover yourself, and make positive changes that actually last. At least, that’s what our students have been saying for years.

What You Will Explore
This is a 16-month program designed to deepen your understanding and application of every aspect of Yoga from body to breath to mind to spirit to philosophy and daily living. From principles to practices, from context to techniques, and from ideals to embodiments, this program is designed to give you a deep, experiential understanding of Yoga as a practice and as a knowledge system.
In the Viniyoga teachings of Mr. TKV Deśikachar, developing a regular, personal practice is THE key to experiencing Yoga’s magic. You and your personal practice are the primary focus of this Program. We will help you develop a personal practice tailored to your body, your breath, your mind and your life and to understand how that practice expresses the principles of Yoga philosophy.
At the same time, on the informational level, we’ll explain Yoga’s principles and purposes and how they relate to practice and to life. You’ll understand Yoga as a life path, according to important Sanskrit texts, and how that applies to you and your modern day life. Additionally, we’ll explore the full range of Yoga’s tools, how they work, how they are manifestations of Yoga’s principles, why we practice the way we do and how to structure the techniques into practices. You’ll come away with a broad, working knowledge of Yoga as a Tradition and Viniyoga as a Lineage.
And, on the experiential level, we’ll provide the container for personalized implementation of the principles, and practices of Yoga in your life. You will become more and more authentically you, and you will see that manifesting in your life.
