Welcome to the YPA DEEP DIVE!
Deep Dive sessions complement our core Yoga, Purpose & Action Training. These are small group sessions with OTM Founders Seane Corn, Hala Khouri, and Suzanne Sterling, where you will dive even deeper into the material presented in the main course, after each main course session.
These segments will include exercises and group discussions to explore the themes of the day and open Q and A with each of the teachers. This cohort will be limited in number and will afford more individual attention, as well as in depth exploration of the OTM methodology of inside out transformation toward conscious action.
