Although most faculty presenters will be able to provide modifications, only you know best what works for your body / mind. YOGA, the Conference and Show encourages participants to select classes that include a variety of activity and reflection/meditation. We hope you find the following guidelines helpful.
- All Levels: These classes are for participants of all abilities, levels, disciplines and interests.
- Meditation / Breath / Contemplation: Some or part of this class will be meditative, breath work or contemplation
- Teacher Training: Teachers, Teachers in training and participants with an interest in the course material are all welcome to attend, usually some lecture.
- Therapeutic: Continuing Education material for Teachers and Practitioners to progress toward improving the health and well being of the practitioner, through the application of philosophy and practice of yoga techniques.
- Advanced Beginner: For this level and beyond, should be comfortable with sun salutations and basic/essential poses.
- Intermediate: Suited for participants who have developed an understanding of the fundamental principles of yoga practice; balance, steadiness and endurance and are interested in refining their practice.
- Advanced: For participants who have committed to a constant practice and have developed a conscious working relationship with their body/mind.
There is both a SHOW / MARKET PLACE and a CONFERENCE. Your Conference badge gains you admission to the Show Floor and activities in the Yoga Garden and Kirtan Area. The Show Floor Pass gains you admission to the Show Floor vendors, the Yoga Garden and the Cultural / Kirtan Arts area.
You may simply select any classes you wish. Your sub-total will reflect the price per hour of all of the classes you have selected. This provides you much more freedom to move around the conference, as you need.
All Class/workshops are range in price from $24.75 to $33.00 per hour. As more hours are selected the rate per hour decreases.
There is no fee for any online class changes you make yourself. This does not include the removal of a class(s) from your original selection. If your change requires a refund, you must read through refunds and cancellations. Class changes can be made on line until Friday April 6th 2018. After Friday April 6th, class changes can only be made on site pending session space availability. Class changes are not permitted after a currently scheduled session has started.
