Fire Nectar Flow: 50 Hour Intensive March 12th-16th

Do you want to be an effective and powerful vinyasa teacher? Do you want to fill the room and be a teacher whose classes are well attended? Can you do both? This intensive will take your skills and your teaching to new levels, as you learn to skillfully weave and fuse form and flow, where heartfelt teachings converge with skillful alignment in the rhythmic pulse of breath and body. 

Whether you are a vinyasa teacher looking for new skills and tools, or an alignment-based teacher seeking to broaden your range, this week will up level your teaching immediately. 

As vinyasa yoga becomes more common, quality varies greatly.
