Program

The core of every good wellness program is behavior change. With the right education, skills, motivation, skills/tools, and social support, people change behaviors. Wellness programs are good at helping people adopt and maintain healthy behaviors. This is perhaps the biggest benefit of having a wellness program. Healthy behaviors lead to lower health risks, and lower health risks lead to less chronic disease. With less chronic disease, one has fewer health care costs.

Anatomy and alignment

Explore the physical body as an integrated system. Learn the ways in which your muscles, joints, and connective tissue work together as a whole, creating a more holistic understanding of the body’s anatomy.

Foundations in breath for asana

Why do we breathe differently in yoga? How do different breath techniques affect the physical body? Learn how to shape the breath to deepen what different āsana (yoga postures) have to offer.

Sequencing principles of asana

  • Learn how to link āsana together in a safe and effective manner
  • Connect anatomy, breath, and sequencing to skillfully create and adopt practices that address specific needs for specific populations.

Sequencing principles for the subtle energy body

  • Learn to shift your energetic state with tools and techniques that can energize, calm or balance
  • Learn sequencing to prepare for foundations in prāṇyama (breath regulation) and meditation practices

Applications of yoga for the emotional body

  • Apply the physical, mental, and energetic tools to sequence for body positivity, eating disorder, trauma-sensitive practices, and emotional states such as depression and anxiety

Development of advanced pranayama, bandhas, pratyahara, and meditation practices

  • Delve in more detail into rich prāṇayama and meditation techniques, and explore how to integrate them into your classes and practice
