The Yoga of Energy Flow 500-hour Teacher Training will bring all the aspects of yoga to more profound places of experience, understanding, and application for teachers and interested students alike. We will focus particularly on Yoga as A Living Practice, basing our studies on yoga as a path to health, happiness, and wholeness.
Included in the training is the Living Yoga Series and Weekend Immersions. The Living Yoga Series is a weekly 2½ hour class with Daniel Orlansky and leading local yoga teachers that highlights different aspects of yoga philosophy, practice, and lifestyle, allowing an in-depth approach to the growing knowledge that is yoga. Weekend immersions will be concerned with the pertinent and practical subjects of advanced asana alignment, Vinyasa flow sequencing, pranayama, meditation, yoga therapeutics and anatomy, the art of hands-on assists, and yoga nidra.
This 500-Hour Yoga Teacher Training will automatically grant the status of RYT-500 (Registered Yoga Teacher – 500 hour level.)
