Fluid Yoga®: Body Alignment Intensive 12/1-12/3 2017
The Fluid Yoga approach to asana encourages freedom and exploration within the framework of alignment-based cuing and sequencing.
For the Fluid Body Alignment Intensive, the result is a practice that is efficient and expansive; students new to yoga or those with years of experience will find equal room for growth and discovery. The Fluid Body Alignment Intensive introduces the dynamic rhythm of vinyasa while providing easy methods for understanding safe alignment.
Attendants learn to listen to their inner wisdom to make moment-to-moment adjustments without disrupting the fluidity of practice.
There are no pre-requisites for this intensive. This intensive can be taken independently as a meditation immersion, continuing education credits or as part of the Fluid Yoga Teacher Training.
Reservation deposit: $120
30 CEU Credits can be applied to Fluid Yoga Teacher Training.
