Yoga Foundations Program: Registration is open to all students, anyone wanting to expand and improve their own personal practice and deepen their knowledge of yoga and the body.
Coming in as beginner or an experienced practitioner, this dynamic program will support your education in yoga, fitness and health. You’ll be given the tools and techniques of yoga to harness your own transformative energy, through practices that build from a sound base up, providing the structure of a balanced lifestyle body-mind and human spirit.

The system and practices are not watered down, but based and grounded in the comprehensive and spiritual foundation of Yoga. This is an exceptional opportunity to learn, with master teachers. Sherri Baptiste has drawn together an exceptional cast of faculty to provide you with an eight month long, rich, exciting, full bodied program. The Baptiste Family is a unique lineage of teachers. Through her parents (Magana & Walt Baptiste) and their San Francisco based work, the lineage of the Baptiste Family in the fields of yoga, physical culture, health, fitness, spiritual retreats and dance dates back more than 80 years now in America’s (USA) History. The lineage is deeply rooted, mainstream and strong.

We are inspired by your drive, to take this next step forward. The energy for this training is vibrant, sophisticated and bright. Our community building for the program, will also be great, as we grow together towards this next step of personal development.
