Breitenbush Hot Springs in Detroit, Oregon

July 7-12, 2019

8 Limbs Yoga Centers, a 500-hour RYT certified school, invites yoga teachers and dedicated practitioners to join us to connect and gather with other like-minded practitioners. As students, we are always learning, filling our wells and receiving deeper insights through continued practice and study. As teachers, continued study allows us to expand our repertoire and more fully develop our voices and yogic lifestyles. As practitioners, we seek a sangha, or community, with whom we can share and celebrate our journey. Our goal this week is to provide a rich program and inclusive community to help you prosper – in your practice, in your studies, and if you are a teacher, in your career as a yoga teacher.

In this spirit, Breitenbush Summer Immersion Retreat will provide space for meaningful conversations, classes in art of teaching and sequencing, physical and energetic anatomy, non-violent communication, business empowerment skills, Yin Yoga, Ayurveda and more.

Senior 8 Limbs Yoga Center instructors Melina Meza and Chiara Guerrieri (each with at least 20 years of teaching experience) will help you integrate your studies “off the mat” into daily life.
