Unit 1: Anatomy of a Healthy Practice

Awaken the Teacher Within-A Journey to the Self

This unique training is grounded in anatomy and yoga therapy with direct application to students with many levels of abilities, injuries and intentions. We employ an active learning approach with a focus on specific areas of study. This experience is much more than learning how to teach yoga. It’s an invitation to expand the mind, open the heart and heal the body.
