KEY COMPONENTS AND CURRICULUM

Through pose deconstruction and reconstruction we discuss and explore personalizing the asana (posture) practice around biomechanics, special populations, and functional range of movement. Gain a well-rounded comprehension of the many different asanas to further your own practice and become a wise teacher.

Every human body is like a snowflake - completely unique. Therefore, to be wise, we cannot look at the asanas as cookie cutter shapes. Each pose looks and feels different in each body. As such, we use modifications, props, educate on special populations, and discuss safety practices.

If you aren't breathing, then its not yoga. The breath is where it all begins. Through the breath, one begins to connect to the deeper layers of the subtle body. Yoga Therapy practices center around the belief that the body carries all the stress. The dis-ease in life causes the disease in the body. Learn different breathing techniques, safety tips, and how to weave it in through your teaching.
