I’m so excited to announce that this amazing program will begin on March 16, 2023.
Best of all, you can choose to take it synchronously (live workshops via Zoom) or asynchronously (a combination of live workshops and online self-paced learning) to match your needs and schedule while still receiving your Yoga Alliance accredited 300-hour yoga teacher training.
The 300-hour program will start where the 200-hour left off with trauma-informed myofascial yoga, mindfulness-based movement, fascial anatomy, neuroscience with the latest additions of pandiculation, biotensegrity and somatics with functional strengthening.
I’m also thrilled to announce our extra special guest teacher Marjorie Woollacott, a faculty member of the University of Oregon’s Institute of Neuroscience, will be teaching us the neuroscience of mindful movement!
I promise you this is NOT your ordinary yoga TTP. Deeply steeped in Hakomi principles, this program offers a non-violent setting for safe and effective learning. Over the course of six modules, you will dive deeper into your current yoga understanding and learn many important new upgrades from the world of fascia research and yoga therapy.*
So grateful to have had the opportunity to learn, explore, play and dance in the world of yoga and fascia with her and all the other wonderful souls who joined in the training. I feel more connected to my practice and also more aware of and able to share these concepts with others.” — Former Student
