Three Week Immersion

Our Three-Week Immersion is an intense experience of living, breathing, sweating, and dreaming yoga! This dynamic program works well for those who like to focus on one thing at a time or whose schedule allows them to devote 3 full weeks to the study of yoga (and living in Asheville). There is time after the training is finished to complete homework assignments.
