Learning is a life-long pursuit, and part of the process of personal growth and transformation. Yoga Well Classes may be different from other classes you’ve taken. We follow the principles of Viniyoga based in eastern philosophies, which requires patience, commitment and daily practice.

The Yoga Well Institute offers live, online learning that include meditation courses, Yogasūtra studies, and a wide range of semester classes to help you deepen your Yoga practice.

MEDITATION COURSES

Meditation is a pillar in a life of Yoga — and it is best treated as a process. How you prepare your mind and body before meditation impacts the experience, and it is both a crucial step for meditation to work successfully and a powerful tool in shaping the meditation experience. Our meditation courses are designed to help you move through the process, no matter your experience or comfort level with meditation.

1:1 MENTORSHIP

The Yoga Well Institute teaches the tradition of Viniyoga as passed on by Mr. TKV Desikachar. We hold that a personal mentorship relationship with a teacher is absolutely necessary for implementing yoga in one’s life in a deep way. It is the role of the mentor to understand the student and then guide them in establishing a personal practice.

We think that mentorship is so important that we are happy to help any student get connected with a personal teacher. If you are interested in being introduced to a mentor, please sign up for a free, 30 minute mentor matching session. We’ll ask questions about your yoga journey, what your needs and interests are, and then will facilitate an introduction to a mentor suited to you. It’s then up to you and the mentor to determine if it’s a good fit, no pressure, no obligations. If you have more questions or want more information about mentorship, we have that too.
