Self-Awakening Yoga® has been called a miraculous returning home to the wisdom of the body. In this 100-hour all-levels immersion you will learn the fundamentals of Self-Awakening Yoga, from accessible movement, to mindful awareness. You will experience a non-authoritarian approach to unraveling muscle tension, experience new ranges of motion, and recover natural movement.

What will I learn?

Whether new to yoga, a seasoned practitioner, teacher, or healing professional, this immersion will free you to access your inner source of intuitive guidance, bringing new depth of insight to your personal practice and your work with others.

The Self-Awakening Yoga® methodology is experiential and provides a lifetime of tools for self-awareness and practice. The course includes daily workshops, demonstrations, small group exercises, practice sessions with partners, learning psychology, and skills for designing progressive sequences of natural movement.


In the process of Self-Awakening Yoga®, the depth of your own body-based wisdom is allowed new space for expression. Discover your innate ability to slow down, travel to the place where the urge to move originates, and hone your capacity for intuitive knowing through the language of sensation.
