The Experience

This training is for current yoga teachers and yoga practitioners looking to evolve their own practice and their teaching. Both yoga teachers and seasoned practitioners with 3+ years of experience are welcome and will benefit from it. It focused on deepening your understanding in these three main areas:

Sequencing: you will refine designing experiences that are informed by the needs of your students both on a therapeutic and anatomical level. This entails understanding what progress in a sequence means for each body and how to intelligently compose asana, mudra, bandha, and pranayama that open the body and prepare the mind for the sankalpa set.

Cueing: you will journey through languaging that empowers your student’s sovereignty and cultivates powerful imagery to bring deeper embodiment. This means attuning to the mindset and patterns of those who you are guiding while tapping into your intuition and own flow state.

Assisting: you will learn touch and breath-specific guidance that opens fascia lines and anatomical structures in the body. It yields more freedom of movement and sensation, ease in moving toward peak poses, and tangible sensing of common pranic pathways.

What people are saying...

"After more than 15 years of teaching and co-teaching, I have distilled the yogic wisdom into a system that balances the discipline of practice and the lightness of play.  This is what I bring to my trainings."

- João Paulo Pereira

Our Faculty

Our faculty combines 30 years of experience in Yoga, Thai bodywork and Ayurveda from which to draw on, merging João’s background in varied Hatha and Tantra yogic lineages with Marisa’s solid Ashtanga and Vinyasa foundation to offer a broader conversation on the practice of asana and pranayama not restricted or assigned to a specific tradition. They have each also integrated the wisdom of multiple complementary practices, including breath work, kriyas, meditation styles, martial arts, qi gong, Budokon yoga, dance and somatic movement, Thai and Tibetan bodywork, aquatic therapies and acroyoga. Those have also informed the rich teaching styles they each bring to this advanced training.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is included?
    For retreat-style residential trainings: tuition, food, and board. NOT INCLUDED: airfare and transportation to the venue. For non-residential local trainings: tuition only.
  • What if I just want to deepen my practice but not teach?
    This training’s main focus is to instruct you on how to build your personal practice, which once built and established can easily lead to great teaching. So if you are coming mostly to get your 200 hour certificate, please don't come. If you are on a personal quest to develop or give new meaning or depth to your personal practice, you will emerge from this training transformed and more embodied. From an authentic personal practice you will begin to naturally share and teach others if that is something you are seeking and wanting.
  • How to get there?
    Upon registration you will receive the address of our private studio where training will take place.
  • What is the weather like?
    Sonoma County has warm to hot days and chili evenings. We recommend that you bring layers to be able to easily adapt to erratic weather changes and temperature fluctuations.
  • Is there food nearby?
    Many options that are 5 to 10 minutes away. You can also bring your own food.
