Fall 2017 Intensive
Participants in this program, Carried Downward Breath, will be called upon to recognize and connect more deeply to their fathomless inner capacities, that they may call on their students to do the same during pregnancy, birth and beyond. With this as the base, a rich and precise layering of learned skillfulness will be cultivated. Balancing a reverence for the study of classical yoga alongside an examination of the contemporary, scientific understandings of pregnancy and birth, students in this program will acquire skill-sets that are ultimately practical and useful.Download our Carried Downward Breath FAQs
