Redefining Mobility: 10 Hour Teacher Training


About the event


Change is not optional, it is inevitable and it is constant. Every move we make creates change in our bodies at a cellular level. We live in an information world with science to help guide our decisions with precision, so the changes we endeavor to make can be aimed in the right direction. There is quite literally a science to the way we move.

If you are a Yoga teacher wanting to expand your knowledge of the body; if you want to stay current with the literature, and apply it to the way you teach; if you have aches and pains and want to help others with theirs - this training is for you. We will explore the meaning of mobility, the science around stretching, and how to make lasting change in the physical structure of our bodies. We will explore how to teach this. If you’ve been practicing Yoga for 15 years and you can’t do the splits, you’re going to find out why. As Yoga teachers we need to stay current, we need to be informed, and we need to be sure we are helping the people we teach, both with legitimate information and informed ways of instructing movement. Come be a part of the shift. Contribute to positive change for you and for those you inspire. Marry the old with the new and help your community blend tradition with science.

Yoga is the love of my life. It's my deepest motivation. I love the precision of Iyengar,
and the way in which it aligns the body. I appreciate equally the freedom and creativity Vinyasa offers, and the way Asana can become a dance once the poses are understood. I blend the two together, and offer an intelligent and fun experience.
