Event description

Description

Chamonix workshop will focus on getting back to the roots and essence of Yoga. It’s a unique opportunity for practitioners of all levels to reveal an often over-looked core dimension of yoga. In this course, Chuck will share with us, drawing on his vast experience of years of practicing, how to apply asanas appropriately so that each of us can achieve our ultimate potential. Yoga philosophy will be linked to the practice of asana, pranayama, and meditation for the purpose of greater insight.
