5-day Immersion Spirit Works Ranch

April 22-26th

Your training begins with a 5-day retreat at Spirit Works Ranch in Whitefish Montana. Having taught immersions for many years I know how powerful immersive experiences are for personal transformation; offering a way to truly create sacred space to dive in, to dig deep, and to mine the jewel of the heart.


Immersions allow for students to develop new habits, to commit to their practices, and to get acquainted with spending time daily in study, meditation, and practice. 

During your immersion you will be given personal development tools, practices, and skills to carry you through the rest of your training and your life. This immersion will set a solid foundation for the rest of your teacher training. 

Savor curated meals, a wood-fire hot tub, cold plunge pool, carefully crafted practices and teachings to establish you in the teachings and your own heart.

“Selena is a truly wonderful teacher - I can’t imagine embarking on the 200hr YTT journey with anyone else. Her teaching style, both in her yoga classes and YTT modules is concise, energetic, challenging (come prepared to work!), and fun. Selena’s assignments and in class exercises can be difficult (some physically, some mentally) but build on one another, and are incredibly helpful in establishing a strong foundation in all of the subtleties that go into teaching safely, intelligently and successfully. Whether or not you are planning on teaching following training, you will leave with wealth of knowledge about yogic philosophy, much improved sanskrit pronunciation, an understanding of anatomy as it pertains to yoga, and a yoga practice that you LOVE.”
