About This Event

This will be our second WildYoga Teacher Training weekend based out of Studio M Yoga, where we will flow together integrating breath and movement in an exploration of Vinyasa. The Water Element teaches us the importance of flexibility, following the path of least resistance, and being patient with ourselves as the time-tested practice of yoga carves new pathways in our minds and bodies. It is the perfect place to gently evolve the new skill of teaching yoga and learn to go with the flow!

Please arrive having eaten dinner as we begin with an asana practice at 6:30pm.

Balanced Rock integrates the wonder of the natural world with the beauty of humanity through reflection, yoga and adventure. I am nearly complete with my 200 hour Yoga teacher training through BR and I am consistently impressed with the level of time and attention this organization puts into developing teachers and longtime learners of yoga and life. ~P.J.

Directions

Each course explores a different region of the Park. With our staff of resident Yosemite experts, we specialize in visiting less crowded, yet stunningly beautiful corners of the Park. We have decades of collective experience in exploring Yosemite National Park, and have a wide range of hidden sanctuaries, secluded lakes, outdoor granite-slab yoga “studios”, and comfortable campsites in our routes and itineraries. If you want to also see some of the more popular icons and destinations, there is ample time at the beginning and end of each course.

Once you complete your registration for a course, we will send you detailed directions and a map to the meeting place for your course. This will usually be a campground inside the park boundary on the Tioga Pass Road.

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)
