We are thrilled to offer a
ONE OF A KIND journey through a
300 Hour Yoga Teacher Certification Program!  

“Tada Drastu Svarupe Avastanum”
(Then the Seer shines in their resplendent form)
Translation of Patanjali Yoga sutra Book I sutra 3

Our Yoga Advancement Program is designed to move you forward in becoming fully established in your unique shining form. In sanskrit this sutra is written, “Tada Drastu Svarupe Avastanum”. Tada means to emerge from within, drastu is the seer (the one who sees or the witness) svarupe is the true form of the Self, and avastanum is to be fully and consistently established in that. Feel the relief of coming home to your true and unique Self and sharing that with those you encounter in and out of the yoga classroom. As yoga students and teachers, our first commitment is to our own deep inner connection to Self or so that we can model and awaken that in those who come to us in studentship. Skillful action that leads to the removal of physical, psychological and mental obstacles bring us naturally to rest in our deepest nature that is present in every moment.
