We strive for a comprehensive teaching of yoga, meditation and healthy living.

Living Yoga Immersion Topics

Holistic Yoga draws insights and gifts from various traditions that have contributed to yoga as a natural health and wellness system.

Our RYT-200 Living Yoga Immersion Program provides participants with a vast array of knowledge and tools which help facilitate a journey of self-inquiry, personal practice and reflection. We encourage our participants to weave the concepts and ideas learned into daily life in order to fully experience the practices of yoga on an individual level. We believe that in embodying the concepts, participants will naturally learn to share them with others in an authentic way. Upon completion of the course you will receive your RYT-200 Certificate and can register with the Yoga Alliance on their Internationally-Recognized Directory of Yoga Teachers! Please click here to read more about the Yoga Alliance RYT200 Certificate.

The philosophy of holistic yoga is to address all aspects of a person’s health…

mental, physical, & subtle

While distinctive and contemporary, our approach is strongly rooted in the great teachings and literature that have been handed down through the generations. Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras serve as a philosophical backbone as we merge ancient wisdom with modern style and translation. We draw on many worldly traditions and natural health practices, including the philosophy and language of Sanskrit, the science of Ayurveda, modern medical theory and proof, as well as metaphysical energy models. An overall yogic lifestyle is emphasized, including diet, sustainability, mental attitude, and more! Selfless service and community support are woven into our programs, as we recognize the importance of cultural involvement and service. The quality education we provide will help you reach a higher level of self-awareness, compassion and community service.

In a moving meditation we build strength and endurance while at the same time creating a sense of calm and quiet. In this manner, yoga practice becomes an exquisite integration of breath, balance, strength, endurance, natural health and meditation.

Build community, while nurturing your mind, body and soul.

“My overall experience was phenomenal and beautiful. I feel as though I could not have asked for more. This was a life changing point in time (and space) and actually altered the continuum of my existence. There were no bad or negative experiences, and I found love and positivity in all that we had done together.”
