Essence of Self-Study – To Make You Think

For 10 years I’ve held sacred space for self-study through @alchemyofyoga RYT200 Teacher Training. My program has been dedicated to the study of the SELF, through the self, to the self because this is the purest ‪#‎Alchemy‬ of Yoga. My intention in serving as your mentor is to “get you to think.” It goes way beyond teaching a class to developing ‪#‎Yoga‬ as an approach to daily life. This is the deepest soul plunge into SELF-inquiry.

This four part program based in practical elemental energetics is about your SELF-development where happiness again becomes your natural alchemy. This is the ultimate ‪#‎adventure‬, a hero’s journey in the Art of SELF-Discovery! 

You will become more SELF-Aware and SELF-confident in your ‪#‎Dharma‬. This is the part where you find out who you are. Transform yourself. Then be a leader in transforming the world. How? By teaching them to think for themselves.

Next immersions into SELF?
