We love learning and have crafted this program over and over again since 2007 so that we can speak to adult learners, both academic and not, in a manner that helps you grasp and apply the material so that you experience the fullest degree of transformation and support while in our presence.
Our integrated approach draws from:
the Eastern wisdom of Ayurveda, TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and Thai Yoga Massage
Yoga Therapy and Philosophy from the Bhagavad Gita, Yoga Sutras, Tantra and the Vedas
the Western wisdom from cutting edge research on myofascial release, kinetics, orthopedics and functional movement
Relationship, Vulnerability and Community - Yoga is about getting to know yourself deeply and fully. We make ourselves accessible and teach from a place of vulnerability and authenticity. We strive to listen with warmth, compassion and understanding and make it our goal to ensure that you feel safe, welcome and like you belong.
Our Program Includes:
140 hours of studio training that supports you in developing a personal practice, cultivating strong sequencing and teaching skills, powerful hands on assisting techniques as well as the ability to modify, adapt and make the practice accessible to a wide range of students. In these modules we explore energetic anatomy, Ayurveda, adaptations for emotional healing, meditation, philosophy, breath-work and so much more. It is a beautiful time full of community, growth and laughter.
40 hours of ONLINE studies in Kinetic & Functional Anatomy and Adaptive Yoga where you are introduced to neurology, physiology, the principles of movement, alignment and function. These classes are recorded so that you may 'attend' class when you are able and may re-watch the portions you found challenging until you get it. Utilizing 3d software and our skeleton 'Bob', we help you to see the how and why of therapeutic yoga so that you can become an empowered teacher who not only offers safe classes, but healing ones.
