About our Host City :
Chiang Mai is an intimate town nestled in the riches of Northern Thailand. It is surrounded by fertile hills and golden temples with perches awaiting Garuda's clasp. The dedicated history and faith Thailand carries is a perfect compliment to inspire the kind of exploration intended by this program.
My hope for those involved is that after this course, the Yoga will have a deeper sense of “settling” inside of each student so that it begins to express as an emanation from within, like a soft, but strong wind. It might present in the form of teaching yoga, or personal practice, or just as a means of walking through the world. I always feel that deeper understanding makes the ground both feel firmer and more fecund.
