This intensive is specifically for current yoga teachers and serious practitioners who are looking to deepen their practice while relaxing and recharging. Set in an environment that caters to personal improvement, participants will be guided through daily yoga practices, moments of self study, and have opportunities to share experiences in order to find a renewed sense of inspiration and dedication. Not only will this retreat give you the space to expand your yoga practice, but you will also have the chance to work with a professional photographer (Brooke Michelle Jackson) who will take both yoga and lifestyle (if you desire) photos throughout the course.
