Building community by integrating Karma, Raja, Jnana and Bhakti Yoga. These programs are intended to build community by providing opportunities for yoga teachers and dedicated yoga practitioners to deepen their practice, expand their heart, and raise their knowledge.

Our teachers created a safe, supportive environment of learning and helped us grow as yogis and teachers. Jo and her fellow instructors epitomized the philosophy and practice of yoga on and off the mat. I went into this training thinking I just wanted to improve my practice, but came away with the desire to share my love and deep respect for yoga practice and inspired to become a yoga teacher. It was a transformational experience for me.“
