  • October 11-13

    LaCrosse, WI @ Root Down Yoga Studio

  • October 18-20

    Snohomish, WA @ Spark Hot Yoga 

As yoga teachers, it is beyond our scope of practice to diagnose or treat injury, but the more educated we are about the body, the more skillful we can be at preventing injury and supporting our injured practitioners. In this 3-day intensive module, we will discuss the 5 most common injuries seen in the yoga studio. We will discuss modifications, contraindications, and ways to decrease repetitive motion injuries in your classes. Your expanded understanding will give you the tools to empower your students with a keener awareness of their own bodies in posture.

500Hr 3-Day: The Nervous System & Yoga

January 10-12

Ft. Worth, TX

The Nervous System & Yoga
The more we learn about the healing aspects of mindful movement practices, the more we see the multifaceted nature of their efficacy.

When a positive effect is experienced–we can’t possibly reduce the cause down to one element—there are many mechanisms. While musculoskeletal wellness is often sought out through yoga, it can’t be separated from what is happening at a neural level.

In this 3-day intensive, we will discuss the anatomy of the nervous system, the neural mechanisms correlated with movement and mindfulness, the vagus nerve and polyvagal theory, and the implications with yoga.
