Advanced Yoga Trainings

Facilitated by Christine Apter, PhD, RYT 500
Workshops for teachers and advanced students are held once a month during the summer months. Explore techniques and philosophy and deepen your understanding and practice of the vast and treasured teachings of yoga. These workshops are intended to advance yoga teachers and serious practitioners by providing deeper explorations into asana, pranayana, meditation, anatomy, philosophy in a well-planned, experiential atmosphere. They are designed to meet the curricular requirements of Yoga Alliance for continuing education and expansion toward advanced teacher status. Ample materials, notes and resources are provided.


Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is a practice that includes intention filled guided meditation, gentle stretches, breathing and deep relaxation in which the mind withdraws from the senses and turns inward.

Yoga Nidra takes you deep inside to a threshold state between sleep and wakefulness, a state in which you are very receptive and connected to your intuition. It enables you to find answers within to your problems and concerns. It increases creativity and inspiration and enables you to live a peaceful and meaningful life. It is a beautiful and ancient practice of complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation while still maintaining awareness at the deeper levels.

Yoga Nidra workshops are presented in the spring and the fall at the Yoga Center.
