Yoga Does A Body Good

Latest News

300 hr Advanced Therapeutic Teacher Training Starting Oct 2014 Students must be 200 RYT

Part One –(200 hrs) focuses on the therapeutic benefits of Yoga practice. We will be studying the most common postural misalignment and imbalances that cause discomfort and pain in the physical body, we will also study the effects of mental, emotional physical and spiritual trauma on the heart, mind, body and Soul. Through these studies we will apply Ammayanni Yoga as a system that facilitates re-education of structural imbalances and healing on all levels of 'Being'.

Part two-100hrs. will focus on specific imbalances that create chronic conditions or disturbances in health. We will apply Ammayanni Yoga in ways that promotes personal one on one instruction that facilitates individual therapeutic practice and relief from suffering as well as inspiring students to create a home practice that tends to chronic issues. This training sets a strong foundation for yoga instructors to build a therapeutic one on one private practice.


We also welcome instructors with 500 RYT status to join us for continuing education.
