Why Deepen Your Practice?

There’s no doubt that practicing asana (or what we’ve come to know as “yoga” in the Western world) is incredibly beneficial for your body, mind and spirit. But, yoga is so much more than just the shapes you make with your body while in class. It’s also about the personal growth and sense of peace you take with you after you’ve rolled up your mat.

That’s why we’ve created the Deepen Your Practice e-course.

In this course you’ll learn about the history and philosophy of yoga, the science of rest and relaxation, how to practice mindfulness, the effects of yoga on your brain and body, and how to incorporate these lessons into your daily life.
