This 50-hour yoga teacher training is a powerful transformative  journey drawing on the ancient science of Hatha Yoga and the longevity practices of the Shaolin energetic arts.

The essence of “Tapas” comes from the Sanskrit verb “tap” which means “to burn”.  The traditional interpretation relates to a “fiery discipline”.  Tapas is “ the fiercely focused constant intense commitment necessary to burn off the impediments that keep us from being in the true state of yoga (union).”

Transformative Journey

This training will focus on deep and powerful longevity and immunity practices. It is an intensive process designed to challenge and support one to move through and beyond the constrictions of comfort, habit and falsity.

At the heart of this work, it is a process of shedding, unveiling, releasing and emptying.  It is an opportunity to create space for true, authentic expression and embodiment.
