Healing Light Yoga Teacher Training

Healing Light Yoga is a practice that integrates the body, the breath and pure consciousness.  It is an opportunity to deepen the experience of the physical self, to see firsthand how the breath heals,  and to explore and release deeply held patterns and blocks from the cellular memory. Healing Light Yoga releases Ama (toxins) on all levels of life:

  • Clears cellular memory to heal from the inside out
  • Changes energetic patterns that create imbalance in the mind and body
  • Transforms old emotional wounds to create deep inner peace
  • Restores flow in the body to enhance vitality and prevent disease
  • Expands awareness to hear our inner wisdom

This comprehensive program trains students to become teachers of Healing Light Yoga. It gives both experiential and academic learning in a small group setting. It incorporates elements of individual mentorship along with group classes. It is a profound key to utilizing yoga to heal.
