I will be teaching my 4th Intensive in India with Usha Devi for 10 days this year on the banks of the Ganges in a most amazing yoga studio. There are two asana classes and one philosophy class daily. The cost for the intensive and housing is very affordable. The majority of the proceeds of the workshop go to support village schools run by the Omkarananda Ashram in the hills of the Himalayas. You are responsible for your own travel to India. Contact me for more information if you are interested in attending. You should be a serious student with no injuries, this is a very strong yoga course. Click on the links at the right for more information, prices and pictures of prior courses.
PRIVATE YOGA SESSIONS & GIFT CERTIFICATES
If you have questions that never seem to get answered in a yoga class, or if you are constantly struggling with an asana and need some extra attention to figure it out, sign up for a private session. Private Sessions can be any way you want: Q&A, hard work, problem solving, meditation instruction, restorative and relaxing. It’s the best service you can give to your yoga practice & your self. And it’s good way to design a personal yoga practice for the winter while I’m away. Call to set up an appointment. Great Gift for your yogi friends! Sessions are $75 for one hour and $100 an hour and a half.
