A Six-Day Training with Yoga Masters Wendy Newton and Peter Ferko

In this six-day series, Peter Ferko and Wendy Newton draw on their deep experience with yoga texts, philosophy of tantra, and kriya techniques to help you deepen your relationship with yoga as a life path, whether you are a practitioner or a teacher. Each day will consist of two complementary workshops, which will include lecture, group discussion, kriya meditation, pranayama and time to process and reflect with two master yogis. The workshop series is designed as a cohesive training to deepen your understanding of the Sutras, tantra, and meditation, but you are welcomed to come for individual sessions as your schedule permits!
