The 5-day Immersion (Monday–Friday, 9:00h–18:00h) expands upon Mark’s third and fourth books:
It provides extensive guidance and practice with a variety of refined techniques for teaching asana, pranayama, and meditation to a diverse array of students in different styles of yoga. We will review and deepen our practical application of ancient and traditional understandings of yoga along with the insights of functional anatomy, biomechanics, and kinesiology of movement, breathing practices, and the cultivation of awakened awareness.
Each day includes a complete guided practice led by Mark.

• Friday night is on theory.
• Early Saturday morning is on the nuanced interrelations of asanas, later Saturday morning on teaching pranayama, and Saturday afternoon a collaborative journey into designing transformational and integrated multi-level classes.
• Sunday begins with a deep personal exploration of where we are in our lives (svadyaya) using guided self-reflective journaling and heart-centered mindfulness meditation. We taps these insights in designing
