BEYOND ASANA

I AM THAT – YOGA & CHRISTINA GAGNIER: 300hr Immersion / TT

Commencing in 2020, we explore Yoga beyond your physical Asana practice in a 300hr part-time, immersion / training, facilitated by Christina Gagnier and supported by a diverse group of experienced teachers that will delve individual moules that that explore all 4 paths of Yoga: Raja, Jnana, Karma and Bhakti.
