October 17 - 23 Advance Your Practice
This is a training for those who would like to take their yoga practice to a new level without an intention of immediately becoming a teacher. This intensive training will give you a set of practical and theoretical tools to help fine tune your self adjustment skills, to master your attention, to deepen pranayama experience and to take your yoga practice beyond the physical aspect of it.
We will focus on feeling and sensing, on proprioception - the position of your body in spacetime, and interoception - the internal state of our body. Ww will also sharpen our mindfulness and attention to gain more control over where we direct our energy.

Words on teacher Svetlana from her teacher:
`Svetlana is a fully certified Yogic Arts teacher of the Vira Vinyasa, or Warrior Flow style yoga system, as taught by myself, system creator, Duncan Wong.
I have personally trained her over the past decade to what I consider to be an advanced level, with a personal note that Svetlana has an inherent gift to excel in the healing field and an impressive ability to pierce through the outer limitations of structure and penetrate the deeper meaning and connection between movements and theory.
I recommend her with my full authority as a respected teacher in the global yogic field during the past three decades.
