The Practices of Freedom and Wellbeing Immersion bridges the gap between your yoga and every aspect of your life, so that you can shift from annoyed to joyful, from mildly unfulfilled to radically fulfilled, from confusion to clarity, from pain to ease, and from challenge to opportunity... so you can discover the freedom and true worth that is your birthright.

Who is this immersion for?

Anyone who is ready for a comprehensive life up-grade and opportunity to shift into radical joy. Highly intelligent and creative people who want to become yoga teachers who lead with 100% soul. Yogis who want to refine their understanding of the deeper meanings, practices and purposes of yoga. Folks who are looking to take the yoga experience into every aspect of life. 

This immersion is not for raw beginners. But even folks who have taken a few classes or a beginner's course are eligible. You do not have to have the desire to become a yoga teacher to participate in this immersion.

How can this immersion be helpful for yoga teachers, body workers, teachers and healers?

This immersion gives you time and space for your own practices and refinement. If you are already a teacher or bodyworker, you are already in service and a lot of your life is dedicated to other people, and getting grounded in practices that make your work sustainable for the long haul is vital. Plus, as you transform, it makes your work more effective with less effort.

What are 3 game changers of this immersion?

  1. Meditation: you will have a daily practice that keeps you connected to Source, and you will be doing it every day, and you will be amazed at how clear your mind has become as a result, and how much more wonderful everything is as a result.

  2. True Self Worth: you will claim your true power and worth, which means you will forever be more interested in who you really are than who you or anyone else thinks you should be. When you know your worth, people can't knock you around anymore, least of all you. Which is good, because just as self-doubt and agitation is an inside job, so is empowerment. How good it feels to stop all of the defending, the excuses, the fear, and the cowering, and just be the light that you are — we'll show you how to do that. 

  3. Community: when you discover your worth and your light around other people, a very special love emerges. We share in a community of the heart that is an endless resource for living a life that is truly satisfying. It's a mutual inspiration brigade. It's a support system. It's a lot of fun.

What type of yoga will we practice?

The Yoga Asana is Source-connected, Bio-mechanically Savvy, High -Spirited, Embodiment-driven, Dynamic Vinyasa Flow. The big process for the yoga asana is discovering your own tissue type and figuring out how to open up your practice, and your body, as much as possible on that basis. 

Why should someone participate in this immersion vs. a dogmatic approach?

Attend this Immersion if you are called. This is non-rigid, non-dogmatic, intelligent, full-spectrum spiritual practice for modern living. It's going to suit people who are smart enough and ready to face the utter lack of guarantee but incredible opportunity that is inherent to life itself.

It's about making choices that truly serve you in the Highest way, not making choices based on a kind-of "good little yogi" morality.

What serves the Highest may not always conform to what we think is 'high'. No where does this show up more often than in our food choices! Can we learn to be sensitive and surrendered enough to live what's really true rather than what we have been conditioned to believe is true, or what appears to others to be 'the right thing to do'. This is Freedom, people. It's not a hair-do.
