What exactly is an Immersion?
The Immersion is for yoga students of all levels who wish to take their practice and understanding of yoga to the next level. This in-depth program explores the principles and philosophy of yoga in an organized and cohesive way, surrounded and supported by a like-minded community, which fosters an environment of deep trust and camaraderie. The structure of the Immersion provides a solid foundation for diving deeper into your practice and understanding of yoga, and creates an opening that can profoundly transform both your practice and your life. In the Immersion we will explore:
- The Universal Principles of Alignment
- Yoga Philosophy and Tantra
- Level I Syllabus of Yoga Poses
- Breathing Techniques a.k.a. Pranayama
Who can benefit from taking an Immersion?
The Immersion is for yoga students of all levels who wish to take their practice and understanding of yoga to the next level. It is an excellent preparation for those who plan to take a Teacher Training. It is also appropriate for teachers of other yoga styles who want to deepen their understanding of the alignment-based yoga system taught at Shree.
How many classes will I attend?
The fall Immersion consists of 6 Sunday afternoons. For those who work or have other responsibilities during the week, this is the ideal opportunity. For those with families, it leaves your Saturday and all of Sunday morning completely free .
Each class will include a balanced mix of asana and discussion. Together we will delve deeper into the alignment principles behind the practice of level I yoga poses. We will also meditate, do pranayama, and journal our way to optimal alignment. So don’t worry, you won’t be doing six hours of yoga! In addition, every class will include a break for snack and regrouping. Overall, you can expect to be pleasantly engaged physically, mentally and emotionally.
