Each class, regardless of style, will be a conscious physical and meditative journey focused on some aspect of the human experience. Beyond simple themes or repetitive sequencing, Illumina teachers will approach each layer of the journey — from body through to spirit — in a full spectrum approach igniting yogic experiences that dive beyond and through asana into the heart of what it means to be human.
