Highest Quality Holistic Approach

This TT300 is an evolution of Vinyasa Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Yin Yoga, Power Yoga and Restorative Yoga enabling simplicity with ease in learning and practice.

 

Doug and Lea are well established in their own respective yoga styles, through decades of their research, practice and teachings.

The course requires your full attention, respect and immersion for 3 weeks, but it has sufficient breaks during the day for contemplation, relaxation and allows personal space to recharge.
