Fire & Flow: Vinyasa Yoga Teaching Intensive

photo Jordan Junck

My first introduction to yoga was through vinyasa, and it is the power and fluidity of this practice that led me to fall in love with yoga. Teaching vinyasa yoga can be a lot of fun. It can also be very challenging. I created the Fire & Flow: Vinyasa Teaching Intensive to support yoga teachers who love vinyasa yoga in learning some of the tools and techniques that can make it easier for them to create powerful and intelligent vinyasa yoga classes for their students.
