EYTS: Teacher Tuneup —  Backbends

August 19-23 2018

Brisbane QL, Australia

Delve more deeply into yoga’s backbends, done the Svaroopa-way, while you enjoy a sweet immersion in yoga and meditation.  Learn new poses, variations and adjustments to take your students (and yourself) deeper. In addition to being led by Swami Nirmalananda and other Teacher Trainers, you also benefit from the company of other Svaroopa® yoga teachers.  Your fellow teachers are the deepest and most committed yogis you are likely to find, and those with whom you can share your yoga most deeply. 


They also know what it’s like to be teaching yoga in the real world, so this weekend is all about supporting and coaching each other.  Enjoy the learning time with our Teacher Trainer(s) as well as learning from your peers – all while you’re deepening both your inner experience and your outer connections.
