Yoga for Life: 4 Month Program with Cynthia & Anneke
Yoga for Life is a four month program designed to help students establish yoga as a way of life. It is an immersion in yoga practice beyond asana that will inspire students to develop, enhance and deepen their practice of Iyengar Yoga. A firm foundation of yogic practice gives us the means to live our lives more fully, to create nourishing relationships and to serve the world in all of our unique ways.
You’ll meet monthly with a community of other dedicated students and your teachers to practice, discuss and explore all of the different aspects of yoga. Each weekend will include a combination of asana, philosophy and chanting, discussion and some basic anatomy & physiology.
This program is for you if….
You’re ready to go beyond the asana, physical postures of yoga
- You want to establish or grow your personal practice of yoga
You’re curious about yoga philosophy and mantra chanting practice
You want to deepen your spiritual practice of yoga
