Integrative Flow 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training

Yogic philosophy is rooted in the point of view that living a life of spiritual fulfillment is accessible to everyone. Asana, as practiced generally in yoga studios, is just one dimension of a much larger complex system. Integrative Flow Yoga 200hr TT (IFYTT) is a vinyasa training centered around what is missing from the studio experience; the broader view of yoga as a guidebook for personal development. You will learn how to skillfully apply yoga philosophy, and latest research in physiology, to the asana practice. The artful combination of philosophy and science is what can potentially yield authentic healing results.

This training is designed with working professionals in mind; we will meet one weekend per month. Although the fitness yoga that facilitates people's “workout” is worthwhile and beneficial; it is not necessarily the same as the yoga therapy that facilitates a person’s ability to heal physical and emotional trauma from injury, illness or chronic pain. In this training, you will learn the difference. The style of practice in IFYTT will meet the needs to lead Slow Flow for beginners & All Levels, Gentle, Private instruction, and will also provide an introduction to therapeutic applications yoga.
