Essence Workshop with Sandy

Objectives: To create a portal of learning for yourself. To curate a practice that’s relevant to you. This workshop is intended for persons with an interest in yoga – an existing yoga practice or those carrying an intent to start practicing.

You will gain: a basic, yet deep understanding of the practice of yoga (the essentials, essence), an empowered desire to go home & practice more accessible poses, an ability to enter any yoga class with heightened understanding of what is being asked for, an increased ability to participate safely, a safe framework in which to cultivate a deeper practice more quickly.

12k early bird or 15k on workshop day. Limited space, please RSVP if you wish to attend.
