One of the most difficult things we can do in life is to be fully awake and fully present for ourselves and for the people we love and care about. Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and awake to the present moment. It is the continuous practice of touching life deeply in every moment of daily life. To be mindful is to be truly alive, fully present, and at one with those around you and with what you are doing.

Join us for a weekend of yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practices that will help bring your body, mind, and heart into harmony. This weekend will offer you an introduction to inner peace and stillness, or it can provide insight and enrichment of your already ongoing meditation practice. You will learn and practice specific techniques that will help you slow down, embrace mindfulness, and enter the peace of the present moment. You don’t have to be a teacher, or even desire to become a teacher to attend this course.

Come prepared to learn:
• How to sit comfortably for meditation
• How to achieve a state of deep stillness/calm through mindful breathing
• How to work with thoughts as they arise while meditating
• How to access greater peace and joy throughout your day
• How to be more compassionate with yourself and others
• How to integrate specific meditation techniques into your daily life that help you live from a place of intention

Cancellation and Transfer Policy

Upon registration you will receive an immediate email confirmation containing details about the workshop and information regarding the studio. If you are currently enrolled in our 300 Hour Advanced  Studies Teacher Training Modular program, will receive immediate credit after attending the module. You do not need to do anything, however, please feel free to contact events@youryoga.com with any concerns.

Home Practice:

Because this is an Advanced Studies course, we are assuming you have or have had in the past a daily practice. We recommend continuing, or re-starting this and practicing at the same time each day, as the body craves regularity. Practicing in the am or pm is entirely up to you–both have their own benefits. Try to stay on your mat 30-120 minutes and enjoy your practice!

No refunds for cancellations given with less than 24-hours notice.
Please review our Cancellation and Transfer Policy for full details.
100% attendance required to all 300 Hour modules.

What are Advanced Study Modules?

Benefits-05We’ve built our Advanced Study Modular Program around the drop-in concept. There are 11 required modules you need to take, each lasting anywhere from 2-5 days long, generally over a weekend. Modules are taught either by one of our experienced staff members or an international yoga teacher. We bring some of the biggest names in the industry to our studio and programs. In this very flexible modular program, you get to decide which particular module you take, at what time and taught by whom. And you have 5 years to complete 11 modules (some students do it within 2 years though). Modules are generally open to the public as well, so you will be joined by experienced teachers as well as aspiring enthusiasts. Modules can be taken by someone not going after a 300 Hour Certification–though if they decide later to pursue the 300 Hour Certification, they can retroactively include the modules they’ve already taken in the past 12 months only.
