Yoga Teacher Trainings

Introduction to Structural Yoga

Structural Yoga will be offered first as a short module in March and then a full 5 part module From October-April

Structural Yoga™ is rooted in the spiritual teachings of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and teaches us that “Yoga Asana (pose) is comfortable and steady.” In this experiential training, learn how to achieve steadiness by exploring movement with the understanding of functional anatomy. This will lead to greater mastery of yoga asana. Develop the skill to cue yourself and your students in an empowering fashion, that allows freedom of movement. Expand your ability to work one-on-one with students.

Teachings and practices to be presented, and more:
* Yoga’s spiritual roots – Patanjali’s Sutras for Asana & Pranayama
* Safe Anatomical Movement – functional anatomy through the Joint Freeing Sequence (JFS)
* Why and how to practice the JFS as asana warm-up, for strength and flexibility and more.
* Learn to develop a keen eye to effectively work with beginners and adapt to individual needs.
