When we begin on our path of yoga and when we arrive at the end of the path, the principle is the same, to open and receive, to allow the flow of grace through our embodied form and out into the world as Love. This practice is the cornerstone of YOGA and the first building block of any student seeking to become a teacher. In this training we will focus on learning safe Alignment that will allow you to practice and teach Yoga as a Transformative and Therapeutic life-long practice. Resilience is “the ability of something to return to its original shape after it has been pulled, stretched, pressed, bent, etc.” (i.e., spirit birthed into human form). This week will focus on the foundation of Yoga’s transformative powers to return us to our true and highest self. Nothing is Lacking, it is all within us, as we feel grace infusing our being.. The first week will focus on techniques that allow us to soften and let go of held patterns, that are not serving the Auspicious nature of Life. In this 6 day immersion we will allow ourselves to learn how to feel the openings, and help each other manifest the letting go of limiting movements, thoughts and visions, we will allow Grace/Nature/ the inner teachers light to return us to our perfect state of radiant abundance.
