Practice Intensives

Teachers and dedicated students alike will deepen their knowledge and practice of yoga on every level during this potent 75-hour intensive studies program designed for yogis living in the 21st century.

Taught by senior teacher Julie Smerdon, Shri Yoga's widely sought-after Practice Intensives Program is designed for both serious students and teachers who want to enhance their skills. Each weekend will be a step on a journey that will experientially deepen your understanding of the core practices of yoga. With a focus on excellence, education, and community, the curriculum focuses on detailed asana technique, yoga philosophy, pranayama, and meditation for modern living. Although this course does not give instruction on how to teach yoga, it is a comprehensive continuing education program for those who are already teaching yoga, a solid starting point for aspiring teachers, and the perfect way for students to deepen their practice without committing the time or finances necessary to complete a full teacher training.

Intensive-style courses offer the opportunity to spend an extended period of time immersed in learning in the company of like-minded people. We meet once a month, which allows you the opportunity to take your learning out of the studio and integrate it into your daily life. You can expect morning and afternoon asana practices sprinkled with theory, contemplation, journaling, and meditation. This is a space where deep bonding happens and long-term friendships are formed.

Suggested Experience: 6 months of class experience and a willingness to learn. The Practice Intensives are open to anyone with some class experience and a desire to deepen their knowledge and practice. It's also the perfect course for teachers wanting to brush up on the core practices of yoga. Stiffness and Injuries are welcome!
