JUNE & BEYOND: From SLC to India!

Hari Om!

In the last 5 years the yogarasayana travel cycle has grown to include many new and exotic places including the mysterious Greek Isles!

So it is with great pleasure that we return to more familiar haunts such as Salt Lake and Las Vegas and the amazing Moksha Festival right here in its home town! And find another (sort of) exotic locale: Boston~ for a Presentation on Ayurveda for SYTAR: the grand Conference of the International Association Of Yoga Therapists (IAYT).

All this before departing for a teacher training module in distant shores: Mani, GreecePlease come join yogarasayana for this, yogin-s! 

And a new direction in the India Retreats: From the familiar and safe haven of Somatheeram in Kerala to the wild adventuring in Rajasthan! Early Bird runs out soon!

And in between, in July, is the first Yogarasayana Study Course for Yoga Teachers and advanced and curious students: Weaving The Basket to be held in the lush mountains of Utah.

If any of this sounds like your cup of tea, please read on…
