*Info Sessions 6pm – 7pm on Wednesday July 19, August 9 & September 6

The SRYS 200hr MYTT is a comprehensive study of yoga & meditation styles. It blends classical & ancient traditions with contemporary mind-body culture and the harmony of humanity & nature. This training is designed to cultivate comprehension of fundational theories and practices of yoga & meditation. You will gain technical ‘know how’ through direct experience. Curiosity, creativity and exploration are tools you will use to experience, expand and deepen mind-body understanding. This includes your relationship to others and the environment. You will develop your voice and style, and apply these arts & sciences, in a fun and supportive way. You will emerge with greater embodiment of these technologies and how they relate to modern life – as a yogi and a teacher.
