Soul School is an annual one-of-a-kind interdisciplinary teacher training program facilitated by Sean Johnson and Mitchel Bleier that offers depth, fun, community, and an opportunity to transform your life through committed practice in yoga and teaching. The program is designed for dedicated yoga students who wish to enhance their connection to yoga and spirituality, aspiring yoga teachers, as well as current teachers who are seeking to bring more depth to their practice and teaching through continued study. Soul School creates an opportunity for trainees to deepen their spiritual path through self-exploration and build a strong foundation for teaching yoga in a soulful, imaginative, and integrative way. We will explore the connections between yoga, art, mythology, poetry, music, philosophy, and the world’s spiritual traditions with a strong emphasis on Bhakti, Tantra, and Vinyasa yoga.
