Individual module study and immersion
We aspire to creating a safe space where you feel supported to dive deep and explore yourself in new ways. We build your learning from the cells of your body outwards. Cells form tissues. Tissues form organs. Organs form systems. Systems form organisms like us. Consciousness is present at all of these levels of ourselves and we can learn to tap into it just as the original yogis did. It is a journey towards greater self awareness, understanding, support, and connection with oneself, the world and ultimately existence.
