Depth Yoga has begun for the second year running. The full course has started, and individual weekends may be booked as an urban retreat / knowledge and practice tune-in and tune-up. The retreat from 17-22 is now open for booking by application.
Depth Yoga allows you to gather the knowledge, tools and resources to help develop a deeply personal practice of yoga which is grounded in ancient and modern wisdom.
Whether you are a curious newer yogi, a qualified yoga teacher, an aspiring yoga teacher or someone wanting to accelerate and deepen their understanding of yoga, this course will enable you to seek more insight, richness and resonance with your practice and personal growth.

"If you want to deepen your yoga practice beyond asana in a nurturing and supportive environment of like-minded yoga enthusiasts, the Depth Yoga Course is for you. ... The weekends in London give you the tools to develop a safe and nurturing home practice and therefore yoga in your life beyond the asana practice. The retreat in Greece is a marvellous experience. After completing the course I have felt that I have the right tools to manage stress and challenges in a more nurturing way through meditation and I have taken my yoga practice to the next level. And my sleep has improved as well! Thank you Lisa, Theo, Xenia and all the 2017 Depth Yogis!" -Silvia Barrero, management consultant, London
