Asana Deep Dive is a core Mind Tribes program designed for yoga students and teachers to deepen and invigorate their asana and pranayama practices.
Our 3-day program offers a practical method for integrating joint health AND opening the energetic channels of the body. You will also explore bones-based mechanics, fascia-focused anatomy, and breath tools to discover new-found levels of strength and longevity in practice. For yoga teachers, this program will refine your practice in a way that empowers you to see, address and impact your students more effectively. Additionally, this training is recognized as Continuing Education under the Yoga Alliance.
Friday Evening Session (6:30pm-9:00pm)
This workshop guides students through a unique approach to movement, and their core attitude (“Process over Product”). By unlearning habitual patterns that are no longer serving you, you will learn how to utilize a bones-based methodology that develops greater bone density, stability, and increased physical strength within all-around daily movement.
Integral Anatomy: Unlocking the Hips + Shoulder

Unraveling the Core
Saturday Afternoon Session (1:00pm-3:30pm)
Through inquiry, conscious conversation, and precise movement, you will have a thorough understanding of how our core plays an intricate role both in the way we live and move.
