Students may complete the remaining 3 weeks of the 1st level intensive at a later date in order to receive the Agama Yoga 1st Level Certificate.
Every student will have the option of a personal interview with a teacher to discuss and develop their self practice in detail. This supports students to evaluate exactly what they want from their yoga practice and decide which particular asana and yogic techniques to focus on for specific healing & transformative effects.
As an addition to the yoga intensive course schedule optional Ashtanga Vinyasa classes will be given every morning 7-8am.
