Principle-Based Partner Yoga™ is a visionary healing art that combines ancient Yogic wisdom with modern mind/body understanding. The training is designed not just for Yoga teachers, but for everyone (minimum one year Yoga practice) interested in an in depth exploration of Partner Yoga.

Currently the only in-depth Partner Yoga course available, this 25hr training is an opportunity to develop skills in this unique healing art –an art that expands the traditional practice of Yoga into the realm of relationship and authentic connection with others.

As a yoga teacher, Principle Based Partner Yoga™ practices also expand your ability to give meaningful, deep hands-on assists and adjusts in your regular yoga classes.

Partner Yoga is not a substitute for individual Yoga practice– it is an accelerated path to experience directly the root principle of Yoga – union.

This training will deeply inspire your practice and your life while providing tools to expand personally and professionally.
