Advanced Teacher Training 

July 18-23 2017

Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center, Downingtown PA 

Discover much more about your abdominals than you realized was possible! Everything you have found before is merely preparation for a much clearer awareness of the difference between your abdominal muscles and your spinal muscles. Discover the power of “hollowing” and its healing effect on your digestion. Carry the new clarity that comes from finding your abs into more challenging poses. 

“I got a deeper opening in my body/mind—with greater understanding of what is happening...” 

This is one of our advanced trainings, moving you toward Advanced Teacher Certification.  Many of the practices in this training were previously included in ATT 531: Abdominals.  Study of the Patanjali's Yoga Sutras is integrated into your training.

Come early and join us for the Half-Day Workshop: Abs Are Amazing! Part 2 at 9:00 am on July 18.
