Join us for an amazing weekend* of Myofascial Yoga and mindfulness-based movement! Learn how to begin applying mindfulness-based movement to all your yoga classes as well as the science behind why it’s such a good idea!
Are you interested in how mindfulness based movement and fascia awareness can benefit your yoga practice?
In this two-day intensive we will be learning how to apply myofascial principles to the classical yoga poses. We will delve into core yoga concepts like mindfulness, non-violence, and the source of true contentment through the lens of polyvagal theory. Also covered will be some simple yet profoundly impactful ways to increase your mobility, decrease pain, and improve your overall sense of ease and well-being in your body.
Specific topics include:
~ Application of traditional yoga concepts in combination with modern science of nervous system regulation
~ Understand how polyvagal theory applies to yoga and other mindfulness based movement practices
~ Ball placement in yoga poses with a focus on interoception and nervous system regulation for pain management
~ How to fit the traditional yoga philosophy (including the importance of mindfulness and non-violence) into a modern and scientific framework

“Christine Wushke is a serious, deep, uncommonly conscious yogini. I am impressed by the fullness and joy of her awakeness and her consuming commitment to bring it into the fullest possible unity with her bodily, everyday, real human life — and to help others do the same in their own somatic existence. I hope her innovative work reaches many, many people.” — Saniel Bonder, founder of Waking Down®, author of Healing the Spirit/Matter Split
These days when yoga is on everyone’s lips, an awakened yogini is still a rarity and Christine is certainly one of the rare ones. –Igor Kufayev, artist, yogi, and spiritual teacher
“A truly authentic and all encompassing course, that exceeded my expectations. Christine really embodies so many of the qualities you would hope to find in a teacher, a practitioner and a fellow yogi. A fun, fully supported and safe environment for learning and exploring, I would highly recommend Christine, her school and course to anyone looking to deepen their knowledge of fascia, yoga and movement.” ~ Emer
“The safety, care and warm embrace that Christine provides and the level of knowledge is simply above any rating system. Hands down this has been the best learning experience of my life.” ~ Heather
“Amazing program! Christine brings her students on an eye opening journey of self awareness and self love while teaching them and empowering them to share the same with their own students.” ~ Jamie
“Christine’s Myofascial Yoga Teacher Training Course was a life transformation for me. With over 20 years of yoga alone should be an indication that taking a training from her would be an easy decision. Not only that but her wealth of knowledge with the anatomy, Myofascial Release, Hakomi Therapy and Massage Therapy plus many of her life experiences, created such a well rounded course which focused not only on how to teach others, but made us take a good look at ourselves on a deeper level. Her respect for the body and proper alignment gave me a new perspective on the practice of yoga through the art of “non violence”. She is an encyclopedia of information because of her passion for the practice. After taking the training you will have a new respect for your body and I am sure you will be excited to tell others about the wonders of the fascia tissue. I would highly recommend this training not only for beginners but for continuing education for other yoga teachers as we learn more about how “not every body is the same” and how to respect each individuals practice in a non-violent approach. Thank you Christine.” ~ Rikki
