What you’ll learn:
Are you ready to take your yoga practice a step deeper? This course is perfect for those who have taken Essentials of Yoga I or have been introduced to Sivananda Yoga practices through classes at the ashram or online.

Each day focuses on a new theme while practicing asana: concentrating on the energy channels, learning to meditate, experiencing relaxation, and working with visualization.
