Rasa Yoga 33 hour Immersion with Tanja Mickwitz
Are you hungry to know more about yoga practice in order to incorporate it into your life with more understanding? This training is designed for all serious practitioners.
The Rasa Yoga 33 hour Immersion is an opportunity to build or re-connect to a fully integrated practice which supports the whole of your life, from the physical form to the most subtle alignment. The tools of yogic practice are not ends in themselves but what we use to find a richer and more fulfilling experience in life. Through practice we heal our body, mind and spirit. We become stronger and more flexible physically and mentally. Practice can be radically life affirming as a way to awaken to the richness of experience and remembering our true essence.
