ANUSARA YOGA – IMMERSION 100 Hours
With Benita Wolfe Galvan
ON LIVE LINE + LIVE TIME
The Anusara Yoga®️ Immersion is an invitation to deepen your yoga practice on every level. Experience the exciting possibility of a spiritual, mental and physical transformational journey into the ecstatic core of your own heart. For an average of 33-36 hrs, students are immersed in focused studies of life affirming philosophy underlying the Anusara Yoga tradition, deep physical practice embodying the Universal Principles of Alignment™️ and stimulating conversation with other like hearted friends. (See the curriculum below)
Anusara School of Hatha Yoga Immersions are designed for all students of all levels, backgrounds, religions and ages to engage in the experience of your heart, mind and body.
You will deepen your yoga practice in ways that invite the recognition and engagement of the joyful nature within your self, develop the strength and flexibility through balanced application of the Universal Principles of Alignment in your hatha yoga practice and share thoughts on life with other seekers of Truth.
Traditionally the philosophy, storytelling and theory were given to the students before they were given the actual practices to awaken. Immersions will give you the foundation to spring your physical practices to the next level. You will be immersed in the empowering knowledge of the deeper aspects and fundamental teachings of Yoga, all of which provides the tools to engage worldly life skillfully from your own experience of the inner guide within your heart.
The immersion curriculum consists of a three-phase series totaling 100 – 108 hours and is designed to offer an entry level comprehensive understanding of Anusara Yoga.
Though the immersions are not designed to instruct how to teach, the completion of Immersions 1, 2, and 3 is the first step toward and required for Anusara Yoga Teacher Training.
Completion of the 100 hours of Immersion and 100 hours of teacher training will qualify you for you to apply for the Anusara Elements ™️ teaching license with Anusara School of Hatha yoga and also for the 200 Hour RYT Yoga Alliance teacher certification.
