200hr YTT - Spring 2022 Virtual
Jan 26, 2022 - May 11, 2022

$300 Off Tuition! Early Bird Pricing Ends December 3rd!

 

Our Yoga Therapist Training is one of only 45 IAYT accredited programs in the US.
 
This 200hr training provides the foundations of yoga therapy, where you will learn to think critically and carefully adapt practices to meet the needs of individual students.
 
We teach a mindful breath-centered flow practice that blends Vinyasa flow and therapeutic Viniyoga (moving in and out of postures before holding). We believe a Yoga practice should always be adapted to suit the needs of the student(s) and modifications should always be offered in a group class.
 
We place a strong emphasis on safe and creative sequencing and taking time to prepare the body for deeper / advanced postures and highly value the spiritual and philosophical aspects of Yoga and incorporate deeper meaning and intention into every practice.

Yoga Therapy Foundations, Practice, and Public Health Series (Zoom) Virtual
Feb 18, 2022 - Jun 24, 2022

This course explores the various factors that influence health at the macro-level using a public health lens, while at the same time, exploring the inner world of the human being using Yoga models to identify and treat imbalances.

Class lectures provide an introduction to the primary yoga therapy assessment models based upon the teachings of the Yoga Sutras and the lineage of T. Krishnamacharya. Students will learn how to use these models to assess client imbalances, identify contraindications and implement appropriate tools based on client assessments. You will learn broad strokes yoga therapy practices for conditions that include: low back ailments, heart disease, respiratory/energetic imbalances, addiction, digestive ailments, and relationship issues.

In addition, the public health perspective examines why current interventions have been ineffective at curbing the chronic disease epidemic with the majority of Americans dying from heart disease, smoking, cancer, diabetes and digestive illnesses that can largely be prevented with changes in diet, lifestyle, and stress management.

Anatomy, Biomechanics, and Movement for Yoga Therapy (Zoom) Virtual
Mar 5, 2022 - Mar 6, 2022

In this 2-day intensive with Cheri Dostal Ryba, you’ll get first-hand experience of your own embodied, sound alignment through practice, learning anatomical context and imagery. We can best teach what we can feel and embody personally.

Dive into this intensive workshop to find greater structural alignment, integrity and strength in your own practice as well as gaining skills of discernment and context for working with your students. Part of our work is developing a language for what we see, how to recognize risk and observe the patterns of what manifests in a person’s asana practice.

We will also enjoy discussion around how physical alignment can support the other limbs of our practice and our life. We will close our time and deeply reconnect with a restorative practice.

This class provides a comprehensive exploration of the physical structure to understand optimal and faulty muscle recruitment patterns that have been identified to contribute to common musculoskeletal impairments. The skill of observation develops the ability to identify postures and muscle recruitment patterns that may cause faulty postures, repetitive strain, overstretching, low back pain, and energy inefficiency.

If you don’t already have a copy of Yoga: Mind Body Spirit by Donna Farhi, it would be a welcome addition to your library and may support your process after this intensive.
