The Essential Yoga Sangha is an interactive 2-week online course that allows participants direct access to the creators of Essential Yoga Practice. It’s a prerequisite for those who want to join our affiliate organization for yoga teachers and aromatherapy educators. It is ideal for both beginning and seasoned yoga and essential oil students.


What is Essential Yoga Sangha?

Essential Yoga Sangha is an interactive two-week online course that allows participants direct access to Mona Flynn and Asti Atkinson (creators of Essential Yoga Practice) and also to each other. It’s ideal for beginning yoga and essential oil students, since they’ll get great step-by-step instruction on how to personalize Essential Yoga for their own practice. And there is a supportive forum so participants can ask questions and celebrate successes along the way. The class is set up so participants have complete flexibility on timing so it will work for everyone.

The benefits of both yoga and pure essential oils are so thoroughly documented, that we foresee mainstreaming the combination of these two ancient practices as one of the best services we can provide in helping people to take charge of their own healthy lifestyle and personal wellness.

Participants can plan on approximately 1 hour of instruction per day; the instruction comes in the form of multiple videos and text, so you can work the education into your schedule a few minutes at a time. You'll have up to a month to complete the course, making it incredibly easy to fit into any schedule.
