Partner Yoga is not a substitute for individual Yoga practice – it is an accelerated path to experience directly the root principle of Yoga – union. It deepens and sensitizes our individual practice, while awakening our direct experience of how we are all intimately connected.

Partner Yoga practice is part of the paradigm shift currently happening on our planet. It supports and inspires us in experiencing authentic, empowered relationships with ourselves and others.

Because Partner Yoga is such a new phenomenon and each Level I Training offers different postures/practices, and group dynamics, it is highly recommended taking Level I multiple times.                                    (Reduced fee for returning  participants).
