This weekend intensive will introduce you to the Vinyasa Krama method as a means for comprehensive self practice and study. Vinyasa Krama is the term used to describe yoga practice as taught by Srivatsa Ramaswami, handed down to him through over 30 years of direct study with his guru Sri T. Krishnamacharya (father of modern yoga). It is an intelligent and artful practice weaving together all limbs of the 8 limbed path in a cohesive, practical and personalized manner. This is traditional yoga for all. 

Whether you are a practitioner or a teacher this weekend will help to guide you in the path of deep(er) practice. For practitioners this weekend will give you the tools to take your practice into a more personal route . For teachers, this weekend will give you a better understanding of weaving together a comprehensive practice from movement to meditation for your own self development and your students.
