Live with Intention ~ Spring 2019 Teacher Training Program


"In the field of yoga, nothing can be taught and learned in an instant." B.K.S. Iyengar


Yoga is as infinite as the Universe itself. Some people begin to practice it for health reasons, others arrive seeking peace and tranquility in the midst of an increasingly convulsed society, and others pursue human and transpersonal development, a connection with themselves and with others and, beyond all this, spiritual growth, that contact with the divine spark that inhabits each one of us

Regardless of your intention or final goal, you have reached this shore, you have before you a vast territory to explore, you will have many other fellow learners of the art of yoga; They will guide you in your journey to transform and evolve as a human being ... more refined in sensitivity, perception, much more mature in thought and action.

"Only through the mirror of yoga can man reflect and recognize himself in all his fullness." - B.K.S. Iyengar
