Experience the differences between a yoga teacher, yogic healer, and a yoga therapist and the specific language of each.

Special attention is given to the personal development to engender awareness, strength and subtlety of the sensory system, intuition, compassion, deep listening, sensitivity, humility, endurance, radiance and grace.
