"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 B, management consultant, London
This course has given my personal practice a depth I didn’t know was possible. No longer am I throwing random shapes on my mat, I can intuitively listen to what my body needs and sequence accordingly. I am now also incorporating pranayama and meditation into my practice and able to access an inner sense that years of class practice hadn’t quite revealed. This course feels like a strong foundation on which to move forward in my life. Thank you Lisa! -Laura S, mother of 3, finance & business manager, London
