12 Months of Evolving Your Yoga
Included in Membership
👉🏼Are you a yoga teacher or continuing student interested in expanding the benefits of yoga practice without necessarily doing more or working harder?
👉🏼Do you sense, or even know, that yoga can serve you in bigger ways and yet are unsure how to extract the richness of the practice?
👉🏼Has your yoga practice (and therefore your teaching) plateaued?
👉🏼Do you feel stuck and ready to reignite your love for yoga?
If any of these hit home, I have something to share with you:
Beginning January 10, I’ll be bringing the content of my forthcoming book, Evolving Your Yoga: Ten Principles for Enlightened Practice, to life in a one-year, online journey dedicated to evolving YOUR yoga.
Month by month, we’ll unfold each of the Ten Principles for Enlightened Practice through practices, meaningful inquiry and intimate, personal reflection.
Our program, included in your Skillful Yogi: Online Practice and Study membership, includes:
🔑 Weekly themed asana classes
🔑 Daily contemplation and inquiry
🔑 Pose tutorials
🔑 Personal support and guidance for your practice and teaching
But what you’ll receive from this journey is so much more. As a community, we’ll move step-by-step through the process of extracting the richness of these approaches for infusing your yoga practice with spiritual wisdom and insight.
Through our guided journey into each of these ten principles, you’ll:
❤️ Reclaim yoga as an authentic path for your own self-discovery and expansive personal growth.
❤️ Unfold an entirely new level of gratitude, enthusiasm and love for your practice.
❤️ Integrate the profound wisdom contained in these principles into your life in inspiring and relevant ways.
❤️ Move beyond simply doing yoga to living yoga more fully than ever before.
This journey will be a feature of our membership in 2019 and offered exclusively for Skillful Yogi members.
