Our sister non-profit, Sanga, has partial scholarships available
for those needing assistance to pursue yoga training.

This course is focused on western musculoskeletal anatomy integrated with eastern anatomy, especially focusing on the prānavāyu. Āsana will be taught with an emphasis on alignment integrating the release of muscles ‘hold’ and allowing the prānavāyu to support effortless effort.

The course will include a review of western and subtle anatomy.  We will then build anatomical and prānavāyu awareness for yoga postures.  Finally, we will re-address the anatomy trains, offering tools to adapt āsana in a group yoga class.
