Yoga Programs

 

Yoga has the potential to bring us into a greater sense of ease, embodiment, and connection with both plant and human communities. We offer workshops and trainings which provide students the opportunity to explore a yoga practice grounded in nature, deeply rooted in tradition while embracing innovation.

At Hawthorn, we teach a blend of Hatha & Vinyasa yoga, meditation, experiential anatomy, and yoga energetics.  We believe yoga can be for every body, regardless of body type, physical limitations, identity or background and we strive to make the Hawthorn classroom a body-positive, inclusive space.

Offerings

Yoga Teacher Training
200 hr

This program is designed for experienced students of yoga who would like to become yoga teachers as well as those seeking more depth in their practice.  We offer an integrated herbal and Ayurvedic approach to yoga with a focus on personalized practice and well-being.

Classes are held at our beautiful school surrounded by our medicinal plant garden.  Nourishing the body and soul through deep nature connection complements the holistic approach in our yoga practice.

Yoga Immersion

For those students of yoga who wish to deepen their practice without committing to a teacher training, we offer a 42-hr immersion program.

This is a perfect opportunity for those interested in pursuing a teacher training at a later date or nourishing their own practice.

Workshops

Our workshop series is designed to take students deep into selected topics.  They range from daylongs to full weekends. 

They offer the opportunity to cultivate yoga community, and receive support and inspiration for an ongoing yoga practice.

I feel very blessed to have found this training.  This training reactivated my yoga journey and has inspired me to teach and practice yoga with more determination than ever.  Cyd and Cassidy, a dynamic duo, brought two large tool belts full of over 15 years of wisdom.  They weaved their experiences and styles together beautifully.  This training was comprehensive and concise and gives me the confidence to teach and practice more yoga.
