This program meets all Yoga Alliance requirements for a Level I, 200 hour program.
Each session is well balanced between movement and receiving information with
inquiries for teaching, communicating, and practicing.
It is necessary to attend all weekend workshops so to accrue the mandatory hours as determined
by Yoga Alliance. If you miss a weekend, you will need to make up those hours
in another weekend session with Anna at any location.
Upon application, there is an Ethics and Financial Agreement shared that explains
requirements and expectations. These help to create clarity around financial obligations,
understanding of Anna's role as director of the program, inclement weather, and more.
Through group lecture and group sharing we will discuss how the fundamental philosophical aspects of
yoga and their life application occurs for you. While this is not group therapy, it definitely
has a therapeutic effect in the ways in which we digest and apply these concepts.
