Live an extraordinary life of contribution.

Welcome to Level Three: Beyond Borders

Level Three: Beyond Borders is a live, 6 1/2 day training designed for you to become the contribution that makes a profound difference in the lives of those you touch and the community in which you live.

What signifies a Baptiste Yoga Level Three graduate is a dedication to possibility. Instead of merely pointing people toward generic answers and quick fixes, these leaders operate from a stand for a world of possibility that is created from right now. They have the capacity to stand in front of the past, look and listen for what’s needed and give tools that make a difference right now.

Program Learning Objectives

  • Asana

    As an access to vitality, power and freedom

    Experiential Learning Objectives Through Asana Workshops

    Gain experiential, hands-on learning objectives, developing participants to deepen your understanding of the Three Source Principles: Physicalness, Possibility, and Empowerment, as creations in action.

    • Speak to essential mechanics of postures.
    • Demonstrate essential mechanics of key postures in the Journey Into Power sequence.

    Daily Practices

    Daily large-group practices are conducted to provide an example of what it looks like to bridge the gap from theory and concept to actual, on the mat practice. These practices provide the opportunity to empower your own practice, as well as provide examples of how to effectively:

    • Create your practice from the Tenet – come from we are connected.
    • Be in your body and be ‘out here’ with each and every body.
    • Develop your practice as something bigger than yourself.
    • Practice as a Master.
    • Hold a standard of proper mechanics, flow and intensity.
    • Scale the practice and postures to fit ANY and ALL ability levels.
    • Apply the fundamental Methodology on the mat in real time.
    • Transform body, mind, and heart on the mat, in the now.
  • Meditation

    As an access to getting present and awakening

    Meditation is your access point to getting present and awakening.

    Meditation is an opportunity to open up to an awareness of what is you, and what is not you, and discover the space in between. It is a tool to develop your witness-self.

    The result of mediation is peaceful powerfulness. With that, we approach meditation with joy and use it as a tool to wake up to life, rather than as a coping technique to tolerate the passing of time. The hallmark of Baptiste meditation is simplicity.

    Take your meditation practice and leadership to the next level by leading others in meditation. Practice leading others in various guided meditations rooted in the same simplicity offered in Baptiste Yoga programs. Discover that you are ready to lead meditation now!

  • Inquiry

    As an access to discovery and new possibilities

    Inquiry as an access to discovery and new possibilities. During our Talkshop Inquiry Sessions, you will be offered practical and effective methods for dealing with unworkability in the relationships in your life.

    In Level One you discovered that you have the say about who you are, and in Level Two you discovered your full self-expression, and yourself as community.

    In Level Three you will have the opportunity to discover through inquiry a concrete, reliable pathway to deal with, and get complete in, the areas in your life that matter most to you, beyond the borders of what you know now. This will open up a new realm of possibility for you.

  • Practice Teaching

    Practice teaching sessions are designed for you to gain skills in facilitating and leading Journey Into Power, as designed.

    Learn how to:

    • Give tools and demonstrations from various key postures of the primary Journey Into Power sequence of Baptiste Power Yoga.

What people are saying about Beyond Borders

"Since Level three ...I have fulfilled my goal of completing the Unstoppable Facilitator training, and I’m leading my first training this month. ...I am embodying my “why” in my workplace and in my personal life, and am able to sense when I’m out of alignment with my own integrity or actions around what I say I want- and am therefore able to take concrete steps to “right the ship”. ...I am even more grateful for the worldwide connection of teachers and students of this powerful practice. WE are making change on and off our mats thanks to Baptiste Power Yoga."

Jodi F

"Level Three is an experience of what is possible when you get clear with your ideas and aspirations and reach out within your community and ask for support. Connection and contribution are key foundations of Level Three training and I was left with the realization that I am surrounded by allies and my contribution to my community is essential."

Jennifer H

"After my experience at Level 3 Beyond Borders, I have seen a shift in my perception of conflicts or interchanges with the people in my life in a dramatic way. I now recognize when feelings and stories come up that don't serve me or those around me and how holding onto those things hold me back as a teacher and an active participant in my relationships with others. I want to give back in a way that has never felt more feasible in the past and am excited to see what the future holds."

Danielle G

"“The best decision of my life was attending this program. Entering the program I felt incomplete as a person, leaving the program I feel complete. It has opened me up and empowered me to create a new way of being, which is full of possibilities.”"
