Immersive Yoga & Teaching Program

with Nancy Daniels, Ali Nohinek, and Dr Tiffany Denny

“Our deepest calling is to grow into our own authentic self-hood, whether or not it conforms to some image of who we ought to be. As we do so, we will not only find the joy that every human being seeks--we will also find our path of authentic service in the world.” 
― 
Parker Palmer


The 3 Rings Practice Immersion and Advance Yoga Teacher Training is a year-long experience, encompassing both a rich, 6-month personal yoga practice immersion, and the opportunity for yoga teachers to to receive 300-hour level training to certify with Yoga Alliance at the RYT-500 level.

Our program is unique in its depth — spanning sixteen months and 300 hours of study, the training balances the mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of study and practice, and emphasizes the development of both the skill and artistry necessary for expanding and refining as a yoga teacher.

Ali, Tiffany, and Nancy altogether represent over 40 years of yoga teaching experience, and because their paths and teaching styles are quite different, their collaboration produces a rich and inclusive atmosphere.

At the close of the 3 Rings immersion, you will have an inspiring, close-knit community, a heightened dedication to the practice of yoga, and a new understanding of yourself and the world around you. As you graduate from the advanced teacher training program, you will be teaching from a place of greater knowledge and experience, with more enthusiasm and confidence, and with a VAST array of tools to structure powerful, creative, effective yoga classes and programs.
