The days really are a wonderful mix of digesting concepts intellectually, applying the concepts experientially, and diving into the practices of yoga. Care is taken within the program schedule to ensure that students have a healthy experience both physically and mentally. They promise not to keep you sedentary for too long. There is physical activity and deep relaxation built into the program every day.
Please note: there will be one full day off mid-way through the program to explore, rest or catch up on your studies
