200hr Yoga Teacher Training Intensive
July 15 - August 10, 2021
Summer in Colorado is a special time of year to embark on this 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Immersion. We’ll meditate each morning next to Redstone Creek, beneath the towering trees and majestic rocky mountains. The days are filled with enriching classes and special topics. Evenings we’ll chant and sing under the stars, allowing our minds and hearts to fly and be free. Our training format will challenge and inspire you. The holistic style is unique, comprehensive, yet traditional in nature. The teachers are highly experienced and accredited.
The Yoga Asana and Art of Teaching emphasizes both energetic and physical alignment. In a moving meditation, we build strength and endurance while at the same time creating a sense of calm and quiet. This is not only a Yoga-Alliance Training but also a self-healing and character-building retreat. By embodying the concepts a yogic lifestyle has to offer, you’ll naturally learn to share them with others in an authentic way.
