Q: What was the inspiration behind the event?
Many yoga students come to a place where they want to take their practice to the next level. They feel the benefits of their practice and want a bigger understanding of what’s behind the content of the classes they attend, a deeper embodiment of the practice as a whole. Teacher training programs have become the default place to go for such students. Barefoot Movement’s Cultivate Your Practice and Vinyasa Yoga Immersion programs are meant to satisfy that need without the constraints of ‘becoming a teacher’.
