Block 1 content is related to deeper knowledge of the lifestyle and philosophy of yoga. We have only a few ancient books to draw on, and The Hatha Yoga Pradipika is one of the major sources for the practice most of us are teaching and doing today. Sometimes terrifying, sometimes hilarious, always fascinating, the Pradipika forms the foundation of our lifestyle program, and philosophy is a world wide tour.

Super Sequencing: Simple on the Surface
When I teach a class that flows well, in both words and sequence, it feels like I've led the class through an epic poem, performed in a graceful dance. It just a fits together like magic sometimes. What if you could do that more often, more consistently, more magically? You can. Great sequencing takes a little practice, a little play, and a little know-how that goes a long, long way.
Crowd pleasers like good guided meditation never gets tired, and people are constantly searching for good guides to relaxation and stress relief.

There are a few movies, documentaries, TED Talks and short videos that open the door to fascinating discussions and a better understanding of the body, the mind, the spirit, the earth. Each year, we will explore some of the fundamentals, and some that are unique to the desires of the training group.
