200 Hour: Self-Study and Deepening the Practice

High Desert Yoga

High Desert Yoga | 4600 Copper Avenue NE

Students in the 200 hour Teacher Training Program embark on a journey deeper into their practice and themselves. For many, the agreement to join the program marks the first time the student accepts a more rigorous schedule of study and a more comprehensive definition of the practice. From this new challenge, students have the opportunity to discover more subtle, interior layers of themselves. Students will be given a classical yogic framework with which to reevaluate habits and patterns in mind and body as to their relevance in the present. This course is relevant to anyone wishing a deeper understanding of the system of yoga, even if teaching is not a goal.
