The path of yoga is a life-long journey that requires dedication, patience, perseverance and a willingness to grow . An authentic teacher must embody practices that cultivate these and the quality of true presence within. From this life-affirming transformation within ourselves, we, as teachers, have the ability to touch others and inspire change in the world.
More than a yoga teacher training program, the 8drops 200 hour Immersion is a month-long living and learning experience in which you will directly experience the power of practice and cultivate the true presence of the teacher. We find that learning in an immersive, embodied, and life-affirming way that weaves the spiritual traditions of yoga into our modern lifestyle enhances our experience of being alive, helps us find greater purpose and meaning in our lives and gives us tools for effecting change in the world around us.
